Planning Application P/2021/0176 (Riverside Stud)

Members discussed the application in detail and shared their concerns. The Planning Committee unanimously agreed to raise the following objections/concerns about this application to Wrexham Council:

Access road

It is understood that access from Newbridge Road to Riverside Stud is on a private lane (Riverside Lane) owned by one of the residents in the houses opposite. The access has been granted for agriculture use only and not for residential use which would incur increased footfall associated with a dwelling . The application does not address the access issue.

 

Condition of the land and infrastructure

The site is adjoining the recent Newbridge landslide; concerns over the suitability of building a dwelling and associated infrastructure on this moving land. The land is designated as agriculture land only.

 

Request that Wrexham County Borough Council do a site visit to consider the objections.

 

Action: Clerk to send objection letter to Wrexham Council.

 

 

Meeting closed 18:14
