Plans are in the pipeline for a large housing development in Narberth.

Pembrokeshire County Council confirmed this week that they have received an application for 46 dwellings at the old mart site in the town's Spring Gardens.

Submitted by Mr. Graham Perfect, of Tavernspite, the application seeks full planning permission for five detatched houses, 10 semi-detached houses, eight three-storey houses, 12 terraced bungalows, 10 terraced houses and one large detached house.

Members of the public are able to view the plans at County Hall in Haverfordwest, but at a full planning meeting of the town council on Wednesday night, members opposed the application.

"At this time the Town Council are opposed to any large development in the town due to the infrastructure," town clerk, Mrs. Caroline Coaker, told the Observer yesterday (Thursday).

"The council feels that the mart ground could be better used for community purposes, i.e. allotments, other recreation and extra parking."
