Maes y Ffynnon - Affordable Housing - Consultation Closed

Public Consultation on the development of a new affordable housing scheme on land to the north of Maes y Ffynnon


The Vale of Glamorgan Council is looking to progress a planning application for the ‘construction of 10 affordable residential units including associated works’ on land to the north of Maes y Ffynnon which has previously been used as garages and incidental open space.


The proposal in planning terms is classified as a ‘major development’ as such there is a requirement to undertake a formal Pre-application Consultation’ with statutory consultees and the local community prior to submission of the application to the Local Planning Authority.


The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Housing and Building Services are undertaking the pre-application consultation in accordance with the requirements set out in Part 1A of the Town & Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales)  Order 2012.


All relevant drawings, reports and supplementary accompanying supporting documents are made available for inspection using the links below. These are subject to change, depending on the results of the PAC Report. 



To ensure full engagement with the local community, the Council organised a public consultation event at Bonvilston Reading Rooms on the 4th February 2019


Members of the public were invited to come along to view plans and documents associated with the proposed development, discuss the scheme with the design team and the Vale of Glamorgan Council and complete response forms. 


A site notice and letters were posted to neighbouring properties, landowners and local councillors regarding the proposed development notifying them of this Pre-application Consultation process and the public consultation event at Bonvilston Reading Rooms.


The Pre-application Consultation closed at midnight on Friday 22nd February 2019.


All responses received will be considered within the Pre-application Consultation (PAC) Report. A copy of the completed report will be made available on the Council’s website for interested parties to view.  As a minimum the PAC Report will contain the following:


  • a copy of the site notice;
  • a declaration that the site notice was displayed in accordance with the statutory requirements, i.e. in at least one place on or near the development site for no less than 28 days;
  • a copy of the notice given to owners and occupiers of adjoining land;
  • copies of all notices provided to councillors, town and community councils, and specialist consultees;
  • a summary of all issues raised in response to the statutory publicity (i.e. site notice and letters to owners, occupiers) – the developer must confirm whether the issues raised have been addressed and, if so, how they have been addressed; and
  • copies of all responses received from specialist consultees with an explanation of how each response has been addressed by the developer.

The completed PAC Report would need to be submitted alongside a future major planning application on the site to make that application valid for consideration by the Local Planning Authority.
