Aberystwyth developers request more greenfeld land for housing

Developers in the Aberystwyth area have proposed a number of greenfield sites for housing development in addition to those proposed by the Council in the deposit version of their Local Development Plan. The new sites proposed are:

*  Land at Ropewalk Fields at the foot of Pen Dinas off Penparcau Road in Trefechan (pictured).

*  Land on the seaward side of Pen Dinas, this time behind the new houses towards the far end of Felin y Mor Road, Trefechan.

*  A substantial area of land on the north side of Primrose Hill in Llanbadarn Fawr

*  A small section of land between the new hospital car park on Clarach Road and the existing Plashendre

*  Land 'for various uses' opposite Bryncarnedd Caravan Park on the Clarach Road

*  A large section of land just past Midfield caravan park on the Southgate–Capel Seion Road

*  A large section of land on the north side of Capel Seion

*  A small section at the Llanfarian end of the Rhydyfelin-Llanfarian cyclepath

The proposals are currently out for consultation. A link to have a closer look and submit views is here. Click on the 'Aberystwyth settlement group'.

One reader has pointed out this on-line petition to the Welsh Government about over-inflation of housing numbers in LDPs which may be of interest.
