PLANS to build a special needs respite centre in Rhos-on-Sea are to be considered by Conwy’s planners.

An application is to go before the authority’s planning committee on Wednesday January 8 to demolish three council owned buildings at Bron y Nant, Dinerth Road which became redundant following the opening of the new council offices at Coed Pella, Colwyn Bay.

The proposals are supported in a report to planning committee members by officers.

The report states an objection has been made to the application because of the loss of historic buildings. However, the buildings do not enjoy statutory protection from demolition by virtue of being listed or included within a conservation area.

The report said: “The proposed building would be set back from the site boundaries and will not appear unduly prominent in the street-scene. The split level design responds to the site’s topography, and means most of the building will consist of a single storey.

“The proposed materials involve a combination of warmer colours (brick and timber cladding) and panels of off-white render to provide a more neutral palate.

“The proposed building is unlikely to cause significant detriment to residential neighbours by virtue of overlooking or overshadowing. It is unlikely that the traffic associated with the use will cause significant detriment to amenity.”
