Plans for alterations to Cardigan leisure centre have been deferred in the hope solar panels can be included on works to its roof.

The application, at Canolfan Hamdden Teifi, Park Place, Gwbert Road, included raising of the existing front extension roof and general re-roofing of the whole of the leisure centre building and associated works.

The plans – submitted by Ceredigion County Council - was recommended for conditional approval when they came before the authority’s Development Management Committee meeting of July 12.

Cardigan councillor Sian Maehrlein said she could not see any problems with the application, but asked why the application hadn’t included solar panels on the roofing.

Following a proposal by Councillor Gareth Lloyd, members agreed to defer the application for discussions about whether solar panels could be included in the application.
