Land at Merthyr Road, Tongwynlais – Public Consultation (Now Closed)

Brooke Smith Planning, Chartered Town Planning and Development Consultants are instructed by Grafton Group (UK) plc to prepare and pursue planning permission for five residential dwellings on land at Merthyr Road, Tongwynlais. We would like to invite your views on the proposed development ahead of the planning application being submitted to Cardiff City Council.

THE APPLICANTS

Grafton Group (UK) plc are a major player within the builders merchant industry and include a number of well-known brands such as Buildbase, Plumbase and Jacksons Building Centres within their portfolio. They trade from over approximately 600 branches across Great Britain and employ in the region of 7,500 staff.

The site was acquired by Grafton a number of years ago and they are now exploring alternative options which would make best use of the site.

THE SITE

The site extends to 0.34 ha (0.86 acres) and is situated adjacent to Merthyr Road, approximately 5 miles North West of Cardiff City Centre. The site is surrounded by residential development to east and south. Immediately west is the Tongwynlais Village Hall. Whilst to the north is Green Meadow Wood, which was formerly owned by Grafton and was subsequently sold in 2011.

The site is a relatively flat greenfield site fronting onto Merthyr Road. It is largely open with a low rise wall and a small number of trees acting as a boundary onto Merthyr Road.

THE PROPOSALS

Draft plans have been prepared by Holloway Foo Architects, which propose five detached residential dwellings. Each property will be allocated its own car parking space/garage and amenity space. The development will be accessed via a new road and footpath which will run along the eastern boundary.

Further to the public consultation exercise yesterday, copies of the site layout plan, and elevation drawings are attached and can be downloaded below:

It should be noted that this work in progress and as the design process has not been concluded, details will be finalised process prior to the submission of the application.
