52-home plan vote on hold

Bangor Mail - - News -

A DE­CI­SION on plans to build more than 50 homes in An­gle­sey’s county town have been put on hold for a month.

Bear­mont Homes Ltd has sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion 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.

But, last Wed­nes­day, a meet­ing of An­gle­sey Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee de­layed a de­ci­sion af­ter lo­cal coun­cil­lors urged mem­bers to visit the site for them­selves be­fore pass­ing judge­ment.

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

The plans in­volve 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.

But Cllr Ni­cola Roberts, ad­dress­ing plan­ning com­mit­tee mem­bers, cited con­cerns over traf­fic and over­look­ing is­sues and asked mem­bers to see the site for them­selves be­fore com­ing to a de­ci­sion. Her sen­ti­ments were echoed by fel­low lo­cal mem­ber Cllr Dy­lan Rees, with mem­bers unan­i­mously fol­low­ing suit.

A de­ci­sion is now ex­pected when the com­mit­tee next meets on Novem­ber 6.
