THERE will be a new track at a Llandysul farm after planning was approved.

Plans for a new agricultural track at Penclawdd Uchaf, Rhos, Llandsyul, have been approved by Carmarthenshire County Council.

Rhydian Howells had submitted the application for approximately 45 metres of agricultural access track to be created at the property, which would be finished using crushed stone/hardcore to form a secondary access to the farm yard and land beyond without needing to pass through the entire yard.

It was approved as it fell in line with the LDP and is not likely to have an adverse impact on the highway.

There were conditions to the approval including the work must begin within five years, must be carried out in line with the approved plans, materials imported to the site must be suitable for use and details of materials must be provided to and agreed by Environmental Protection prior to importation, a construction exclusion zone must be established before work begins to protect shrubs, hedges and hedgerows, and a detailed biodiversity enhancement scheme must be submitted to and agreed by the planning authority.

An application for the above address to retain engineering works already carried out forming an enlargement of the existing small farmyard, retention of a polytunnel for agricultural purposes and small portacabin for farm office and private water equipment, accommodation and all associated works was also granted.

Both were granted planning permission by the council on July 11.
