Plans for a new housing estate in an Anglesey village have been given the green light by councillors.

B.C. Services (Anglesey) Ltd had submitted plans to build 10 houses and a new access road near the existing Llain Delyn Estate in Gwalchmai.

Sioned Edwards, on behalf of agents Cadnant Planning, told the meeting in Llangefni that the authority’s highways department had raised no objection, with two of the homes to be be designated as affordable.

She added that a traffic management plan would be agreed upon, as well as a £22,000 contribution to the local education fund.

But the local community council had expressed concern, resulting in one of the local councillors calling the decision in for the committee to decide.

According to Trewalchmai Community Council, the access road to the proposed site via Llain Delyn is not wide enough and the development would be “out of character” for the area.

Other objections raised by local councillors include the proposed height of the homes, questions over the maintenance of green spaces and its impact on the local primary school.

But Cllr Bob Parry, who called in the plans to committee, said: “I would like to make it clear that neither myself nor the community council are against more housing in the village.

“What concerns us is the way it will be built. There are two access routes, one via Llain Delyn and the other via the village surgery. We ask that you put a condition in that access is only via the surgery.”

The report presented to members had raised no concerns from the highways department, but Cllr Parry stated there were concerns that Llain Delyn was unsuitable to carry the heavy machinery required for construction.

Members who had visited the site last month approved the application unanimously.

The permission, however, will be dependent on a construction traffic management plan  being agreed, where matters such as routeing and parking will be under consideration.
