Merthyr Road Planning Application Approved

Land next to village hall

The planning application for five residential houses to be built on land next to the village hall has been approved.

We’ve documented the story since the initial public consultation in August 2013.


Several objections and petitions were registered when the application was officially submitted.

The application eventually went to the planning committee on the 17th of September 2014. A site visit was requested and granted. The planning committee visited the site on the 8th of October and were greeted by a group of residents showing their opposition to the plans.
