52-home scheme planned for for­mer school site

Bangor Mail - - News -

OVER 50 new homes could be built in An­gle­sey’s county town af­ter out­line plans were sub­mit­ted to plan­ning chiefs.

Bear­mont Homes Ltd plans to build 52 homes on part of the for­mer Ys­gol y Bont site in Llangefni, hav­ing been given the go-ahead to sub­mit a for­mal sub­mis­sion af­ter the ini­tial screen­ing ap­pli­ca­tion was re­viewed by plan­ners.

The site in ques­tion lies on the school’s for­mer play­ing fields just be­hind the re­cently-built Hafan Cefni ex­tra care de­vel­op­ment on In­dus­trial Es­tate Road.

The plans in­clude the de­mo­li­tion of the ex­ist­ing build­ings, in­clud­ing the for­mer Canol­fan Athra­won (teacher’s cen­tre) and other empty build­ings fac­ing Bridge Street, to make way for the pro­posed 36 houses and 16 flats. It also sits just yards away from a pro­posed new Lidl su­per­mar­ket which has al­ready been granted plan­ning per­mis­sion for where the town’s Ys­gol y Graig once stood.

“The site is cur­rently unutilised,” the plan­ning state­ment notes.

“The use of the site would be in line with the au­thor­ity’s strat­egy and the growth thresh­olds for the set­tle­ment.

“The de­vel­op­ment would also pro­vide a mix of af­ford­able dwellings suited to use by a range of lo­cal res­i­dents.”
