House demolished without Planning Permission

The developers of the old North Road Hospital site have pre-empted a planning application to demolish a house by demolishing it anyway. The application to demolish Garn Wen in Infirmary Road was submitted in June. The intention is to widen the road to allow further building. The application has received objections from local residents and is likely to be discussed in Ceredigion Council's Development Control Committee in December. Theoretically, if the planning application is rejected the developer could be made to re-build the house. However Ceredigion has a record of taking no action in cases such as this.
