Welshpool Town Council To Object

The Town Council wrote to Roger Parry & Partners and Powys County Council saying they would be objecting on the following grounds:

a) Concern over the impact the development might have on the landscape and local environment and there needs to be evidence of how this can be mitigated.

b) Concern over health and environmental issues and would suggest that evidence of how these issues can be overcome needs to be part of any planning application.

c) Concern over the increase in traffic movements – an impact assessment on traffic issues needs to be produced.

d) A footpath diversion order will be required.

e) Concern over the views from Llanerchyddol Hall and Llanerchyddol Park towards development – a mitigation report to address these issues will be required to demonstrate the effect and its acceptability.

f) Concern over the water table and how the development might affect this – a study into this is needed to give confidence that the scheme will work.

g) Concern about the effect on plant life – an ecology report will be needed to show how such plant life will be protected.

h) Concern over the impact on the Dingle Nursery – an impact assessment will be needed to ascertain how much any effect might be.

i) Concern over how manure will be disposed of taking into account smells (when it is put on the land) and how it will be disposed of when the land is ‘full’.
