Copy of Written Statement

The Plan for Brynsiencyn

It was noted that Mr A W Thomas declared aninterest.

The field to the SW of Ty`n Bryn estate has beenincluded in the plan for potential housing development during thenext 15 years and the Council has reservations about the suitabilityof the site. It was agreed that the Clerk should forward theCouncil`s following comments to the Joint Planning Policy Unit:

There is no suitable infrastructure in place todeal with the extra pressure on the sewage system or the increase intraffic.

i).  The sewage system that serves the area atpresent cannot cope on some occassions

ii). Entry to the site is poor as it means thatbuilding traffic and residents will have to drive through Tre Fenai,Bryn Eithin, Bryn Glas, Bryn Tawel to get there.

As a way forward the Council would like to see theabove field left out of the development area and replaced by thefield located alongside the A4080 between Plas Siencyn and Ty`n Cwrtfarm as there has been planning permission for a housing developmentgranted on this site for a number of years but not much progress.

It is understood that the areas of the two fieldsin question are fairly similar, and including this field wouldtherefore satisfy the demand for the same number of houses over thenext 15 years

Brynsiencyn Public Toilets

Cllr H E Jones reported that the County Councilwill most probably sell off the site with a proviso that one toiletunit be kept for the use of the general public
