The meeting takes place on Thursday, April 29.

The application is for a two storey extension and porch at Cwm Gwalley and has been made by Councillor E Michael Jones.

Until November 2020, Cllr Jones was vice-chairman of the planning committee.

Rules means that applications made by councillors, council staff and close members of their family are brought in front of the planning committee for a decision.

This application seeks consent for a two-storey rear extension to provide additional living space to the existing house and a front porch.

Originally, the building had been a barn and used for agricultural purposes.

The two-storey extension will measure 9.3 metres in length, four metres in width and have a maximum height of 7.7 metres.

The proposed extension will be finished with red facing brickwork to the ground floor to match the existing dwelling, with vertical dark grey timber cladding to the first floor.

The extension will be finished under a slate roof to match the existing.

The porch will measure 3.6 metres in length, 1.5 metres in width and have a maximum height of 3.5 metres.

It would also be finished with red facing brickwork and a slate roof to match the original house.

Old Radnor Community Council have raised no objections to the proposal.

Planning case officer, Charlotte Ford, said: “It is considered that the proposed development fundamentally complies with relevant planning policy and the recommendation is one of conditional consent.”
