Respondent: Welsh Government

Representation Summary:

Existing trunk road link constrained. Site allocation subject to delivery of slip road infrastructure improvement.

The respondent has compiled some general comments from Welsh Government Network Management Division as highway authority for the trunk road and motorways in Wales and also makes a number of site specific comments. The respondent states that the strategic trunk road network is for the safe and expeditious movement of long distance traffic. In order to maintain free-flow and safety, there is a general presumption against new access onto trunk roads. Further detailed advice is given on how developments should seek to access trunk roads, with reference made to guidance and legislation (including the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) and the Active Travel Act).

In order for the trunk road highway authority to be in a position to make a considered view, the onus is on the forward planning authority to provide highway evidence in both capacity and safety terms. This will scope the consideration of existing network capacity constraints, agreed infrastructure upgrades and outline delivery streams (such as planning obligations).

Advice is provided on the potential accompanying evidence required with an application (eg Transport Statement (TS) or Transport Assessment (TA)) - commensurate with the scale of the proposal. Applications are judged on their individual merits and specific supporting traffic impact detail may be requested in order to consider network impacts. Where designs are not DMRB compliant there is a right to issue a direction to refuse an application.

Where developments require improvements to existing or new connections to the trunk road and these are agreed at planning, the developer will be required to enter into an appropriate legal agreement for their delivery, generally via Section 184 and Section 278 of the Highways Act.

Pibwrlwyd Lane SR/021/10
Part of the development is on a flood plane and in my opinion the lane will not be able to support the new development unless the rural nature of the location is totally lost.
A general point about services and the school in particular. The school is virtually full and the site is certainly not big enough to take a large number of extra pupil. This will result in extra journeys as parents take their parents to school out of the local catchment area. If we allow these developments to go ahead Llangynnwr will become even more like a suburb of Carmarthen and the identity of the place that so many people value will become even more diluted and lost.
In the event of all three sites being developed the size of the community of Llangynnwr will be increased dramatically and I believe that this will be an action that will be opposed by virtually everyone that lives in this community.
