Safleoedd Ymgeisio a Gyflwynwyd / Candidate Site Submissions
Representation ID: 2967
Respondent: Gorslas Community Council
(i) Meeting Future Demand: There was a recognition of the need for limited and targeted developments appropriate in scale and nature to provide for the future housing and other needs of the young people to enable them to remain and live in their local communities as well as for other specific groups within the community for whom the provision of suitable housing within their locality would be appropriate.
(ii) Scale and density: The developments proposed in the draft plan were considered to be inappropriate and unnecessary to support the demand within the area. The proposed increase in capacity would totally overwhelm and subsume the existing communities permanently altering and changing the unique character and culture of the area.
(iii) Infrastructure: The existing infrastructure and utilities including roads, schools, water, sewage, electricity are felt to be fully utilised or near capacity and as such would not be able to support developments on such a scale.
(iv)Information/Consultation: There was a frustration from the public at the lack of clarity with regard to the process, timescales and when and how they could input into the process as well as when decisions relating to the draft L.D.P would be made.
