A “MAJOR” development to transform a former pub into a house and to create 24 apartment is set to go before planners.

Members of Conwy County Borough Council, Planning Committee will meet today (Wednesday) at Bodlondeb to discuss proposals, which includes remodelling and refurbishing the old Fair View inn, Llanddulas, into a six person house.

Applicant Cartrefi Conwy also want to build 24 one and two bedroom apartments to the side of the public house and construct a car park.

Plans have been minded to grant, providing that highway and “waste matters” are resolved.

More than 33 representations have been received by the Council and a petition attracted 49 signatures.

Objections to proposals include: Being out of character with the area; adverse visual impact; odour from bins; increase in traffic congestion and concerns that Ysgol Llanddulas will not be able to accommodate any additional pupils.

A report into proposals, to be presented to Conwy Council’s planning committee, reads: “The use of the existing public house as a dwelling is unlikely to adversely affect nearby occupiers.

“The proposed apartment building is located about 25m from the nearest dwellings to te South. The nearest dwelling to the East (Daisy Nook) is about 20m from the proposed apartment building.

“Given these distances and the intervening highways, the proposed apartment building is unlikely to have a significant adverse impact on those dwellings.

“The site is in a predominately residential area, which consists of terraced, semi-detached and detached dwellings of varying ages, sizes and styles. As such there is no overriding character that the proposal must conform to.

“The density and obligations (affordable housing and financial contributions) meet the standards in the local development plan (LDP ) and the housing mix is considered acceptable.
