52-home scheme planned for former school site
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.”
