Homes turned down over design and siting doubts

Concerns over the design and siting of some units within a 51-dwelling development in west Wales have led an inspector to concluded that the scheme would not respect the character of the surrounding area.

The majority of the dwellings, comprising a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, would lie either side of an access road. But in parts there would be unrelieved runs of two-storey dwellings, which the inspector considered would give rise to a higher density and an atypical layout compared with other homes in the area. Despite finding that the scheme would have an acceptable impact on a special landscape area and provide safe access, she concluded that overall it would harm the area’s character and appearance.
