Plan for 35 homes Llanymynech gets green light
Thirty-five homes will be built in a village on the Shropshire/Mid Wales border.
Shropshire Council planning chiefs have this week granted approval for work on of reserved matters of layout, scale, appearance, landscaping and access for the residential development on land to the east of Barley Meadow in Llanymynech, near Oswestry.
The development site, with an area of agricultural land of 1.34 hectares in size, lies off the existing housing estate known as Barley Meadows which is accessed off the B4398 Station Road in the village.
Applicant Primesave Properties submitted the plans for the homes with Shropshire Council last November.
The plans received no formal objections from any members of the community or from Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council when they were out for consultation.
Despite the fact the site is adjacent to the Llanymynech Conservation Area, no concerns have been raised by conservationists who were asked to view the plans.
As part of the plans, overflow car parking spaces for Llanymynech Village Hall will also be created.
About 10% of the homes are also earmarked for affordable housing, the applicant said.
Shropshire Council said the site is allocated for housing development in the recently adopted Shropshire Site Allocation and Management of Development (SAMDev) Plan to provide new housing within the proposed community hub of Llanymynech and Pant.
Karen Townend, case officer for Shropshire Council, said she did not anticipate major problems coming from the development.
She said: “It is considered that the proposed access, layout, scale, appearance and landscaping of the site are acceptable and would have no adverse impact on the character and appearance of the locality or the amenity of neighbouring properties.
“The layout, scale and appearance of the proposed scheme are considered to be acceptable for the sensitive nature of the site and its relationship with the nearby heritage assets.
“A safe means of access and adequate parking and turning space will be provided and subject to conditions the proposal would have no adverse highway or ecological implications.”
