AN APPLICATION to build 15 new homes in a Dwyfor village has been given full planning consent.

In 2015 outline permission was granted for the development near the Madryn Arms in Chwilog, resulting in a reorganising the layout of the pub car park and losing some of its garden in order to create a suitable entrance.

The development includes one two-bedroom affordable bungalow, 11 terrace and semi- detached houses with three-bedrooms and three single, four- bedroom houses.

Four of the 15 dwellings would be marketed as affordable homes with the full application receiving the blessing of Gwynedd Council’s Planning Committee which met this week.

The officers’ report, recommending approval, noted: “The original plans submitted proposed a plain design without any local features.

“The amended plans have been submitted and these propose a design that is considered to be better than the original plans, and it is not considered that the proposal can now be refused on the grounds of its design only.

“It is therefore now considered that the houses are acceptable in terms of their location, size and design. It is proposed to finish the dwellings with a mixture of render and cladding to be agreed.

“The public house situated near the access to the site is listed, and the impact of the entrance on the building has been assessed and approved in the outline application.”

The application was unanimously approved by Gwynedd Council’s planning committee when it met in Caernarfon on Monday.
