Pre-planning consultations have begun on a proposed housing development for Saundersfoot, comprising of 72 residential units.

The proposed development for Sandy Hill Road will comprise a mix of 35 per cent affordable housing and 65 per cent open market provision, with the dwellings to consist of a mix of detached, semi-detached, terraces and apartments. The plans will also provide associated access, garages and parking.

In terms of access provision, the proposals are for two vehicular access points to be created off Sandy Hill Road, with the vehicular access points to comprise of simple priority junctions.

Pedestrian and cycle access has also been considered in the design layout and a pedestrian path adjacent to the site entrance will facilitate ease of travel through the site.

It is proposed that further pedestrian access will be facilitated centrally which connects the northern part of the site to the southern part.

Following the consultation, a planning application will be submitted by applicants Persimmon Homes to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for consideration.

Copies of the proposed application, the plans; and other supporting documents can be viewed online at:

Anyone who wishes to make representations about the proposed development must write to the applicant/agent by, May 6 2022 at: [email protected] or Geraint John Planning Ltd, Office 16 (House 1, 2nd Floor), The Maltings, East Tyndall Street, Cardiff CF24 5EA.

Members of Saundersfoot Community Council discussed the pre-application consultation at their recent meeting, with correspondence received forwarded to all Councillors for their consideration.

Observervations made by member included:

• The Council noted the review of the existing highway network and would look to see further discussion with Pembrokeshire County Council in regard to highway capacity and passing places.

• There was no mention of the expected reduction of the default 30mph to 20mph expected in 2023.

• Further narrative in regard to Active Travel links between the site and the village would be welcome.

• Councillors noted one of the new access points is opposite Braysmore and wondered if there was scope to remodel that access to remove potential vehicular light nuisance.

• In general, the house types seemed appropriate, and the Council would seek assurances that the three-storey apartment units avoided loss of amenity for existing neighbours.

• The Council noted the LDP2 inclusion of 68 homes with 24 affordable for this housing allocation, compared to the 72 homes with 24 affordable as proposed.

• Could the affordable model be provided – shared ownership, social landlord or reduced market value

• Is there bus service provision on the site.

• Council requested clarification that the pumping station would be adopted by Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water.

• Council requested clarification that the main site roads would be adopted and sought more detail in regard to the shared roads

• Additional information in regard to the attenuation pond would be welcome – safety considerations, mode of operation, future maintenance, ultimate responsibility.

The Council understands that neighbours and other stakeholders will be taking part in the consultation and looks forward to reviewing the consultation report.
