THE final details of a plan for 12 more houses in Adpar, Newcastle Emlyn, have been approved despite a number of objections from neighbours.

Outline planning for land between Brynderi Close and Derwen Gardens was granted in 2016 with reserved matters approved  by Ceredigion County Council last week, following a change in developer and an extension to planning time limits.

The site will be accessed off the B4333 with the internal road now including the potential to link through to Derwen Gardens.

Two of the 12 houses will be semi-detached, three bedroom, affordable dwellings and be for sale at a 30 per cent discounted rate, while the remainder will be three or four bedroom, two storey buildings, some with double garages.

Objections to the proposals included concerns over loss of hedgerows and oak trees, the topography of the site, highway and traffic concerns, low number of affordable homes, drainage and being overlooked.

Local county councillor Wyn Thomas had also highlighted the need to retain an existing hedgerow and oak tree as well as seeking assurances over plans to prevent excess water running into Brynderi Close, a planning report states.

It adds that the proposed appearance and external designs of the properties are “considered to be acceptable and in keeping with the vernacular of Ceredigion” and that revised plans confirm the retention of mature oak trees along the western site boundary.
