PLANS have been submitted for a new tourist accommodation facility to be built near Garnant Golf Course.

The application would see log cabins, B&B buildings, spa facilities and car parks built in a bid to bring more tourist to the Amman Valley.

The development would be built on land off Dynevor Road.

Plans for eleven log cabins are included in the proposals, which the developer says would help form a “high quality zero carbon village tourism by creating a coming together of environment and the community.”

They say it would be the first of its kind in the UK.

As well as the log cabins, four residential units would be built to fund the tourism centre, while a B&B building, which would include accommodation for an on-site manager would also be constructed.

Spa facilities would be built to provide for those staying at the cabins, and 35 parking spaces would be created to serve the development.

This would include treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a sauna and a jacuzzi.

The development would create 11 full time jobs and five part time jobs for the local economy.

The applicant argues permission would assist the golf course, which they say currently has the potential to host weddings but struggles to draw interest because of a lack of accommodation in the surrounding area.

Bus routes, already in place, would help carry people from the site to villages and towns in the area, which the developer argues would mean only a small amount of increased traffic occupying the roads.

The full plans can be found on the Carmarthenshire County Council website.
