Consideration was given to the Report of the Corporate Lead

Officer Economy and Regeneration upon development,

advertisement; local authority and statutory planning



Written representation from Mr Matt Edwards (Agent) was read out in committee in accordance with the temporary addendum to the Operational procedure for Members of the Public addressing the Development Control Committee in response to Covid-19


A210522 Proposed erection of a single new dwelling, Land North of Ty Blaencwm Brynhoffnant, Llandysul, Ceredigion, SA44 6ED


To APPROVE the application subject to conditions and subject also to a S.106 legal agreement which would secure a commuted sum payment of 10% of the open market value of the development, as per the requirements of Policy S05  (Affordable Housing) of the adopted LDP.


Members were of the opinion that the application could be approved for the following reasons:-


·         Members recognised the site to be in a linked settlement therefore meeting the requirements in relation to Ceredigion’s Local Development Plan.

·         Due to the lack of consents in the linked settlement the application could be approved

·         Also a lack of housing delivery in the Rural Service Centre of Aberporth / Parcllyn as a reason to allow the development

·         The proposed dwelling was adjacent to a settlement

·         The dwelling was next door to other dwellings currently being built

·         The approval of this application could be considered as premature, however, there was a current need for this dwelling

·         The applicant of the proposed dwelling had invested greatly in two businesses in Brynhoffnant which were assisting the local economy and also adheres to the policy of County Council  and Planning Policy Wales of promoting businesses in rural areas

·         The applicant was required to live near to his businesses for security reasons

·         The dwelling was located within a sustainable village which also offered services to the wider community
