Residents urged to have say on Pantycelyn site
12:24pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in Ammanford news
LLANDOVERY residents, and all interested parties, are being asked for their views on the planning and development brief for the site of Ysgol Pantycelyn.
The brief has been prepared as Supplementary Planning Guidance which will, along with a number of other site specific or policy related SPG, provide further detail on certain policies and proposals contained within the LDP.
Forward Planning & Conservation Manager Jon Timothy said: “The publication and consultation of the Supplementary Planning Guidance represents a key stage in the preparation of the LDP and presents an important opportunity for residents and interested parties to comment on their content.”
The earmarked closure of Pantycelyn Secondary School under the Modernising Education Programme (MEP) has presented an opportunity to identify future uses for the site which include community use, based around the swimming pool, as well as residential use. Consequently the site has been proposed as a ‘focused change’ to the Deposit LDP and this draft SPG has been produced as a guide to future proposals.
The SPG sets out the broad considerations for the future development, including design expectations and the provision of specific elements such as open space and affordable housing. The brief also emphasises the need take account of factors such as transport and accessibility and utility provision, as well as being mindful of the local environment –both natural (e.g. ecology and flood risk) and built (respect for existing properties and the local vernacular).
Copies of the SPG are available for public inspection at all public libraries in the County and at specific Council offices.
It is also available on the Council’s website at www.carmarthenshire.gov.uk/ldp
Exhibition panels will be available to view at Llandovery Tourist Information and Heritage Centre during normal opening hours until this Friday (September 13).
The public consultation on the SPG closes on October 11 at 4.30pm.
Representations should be sent in writing to the Forward Planning and Conservation Manager, Council Offices, 8 Spilman Street, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, SA31 1JY or via e-mail to email@example.com.
