Residential development gets go-ahead

Published

on

Pembs-CCCOUNCILLORS have approved an application to build 110 houses on land at Albert Town, west of Foley Way in Haverfordwest. The decision was reached at Tuesday’s planning and rights of way committee meeting despite a number of concerns. Haverfordwest Town Councillor Christopher Blakemore raised a number of issues relating to water and sewage and the general development to the west of Foley Way. He said: “The council is also extremely concerned about access to Haven Road, both in and out of it. There will be an increased flow of traffic along this busy road. “There are also a number of flats which overlook existing properties, what has been done to address this?” Agent Chris Danns said: “This scheme brings about much needed new housing. This will be a positive development for the area. We are pleased that the report is subject to a legal agreement and we are keen to get this sorted as quickly as possible.” Speaking on behalf of objectors, Martin O’Brian said: “There will be a totally unacceptable amount of traffic and this issue has been raised previously. The location is not suitable due to accident black spots. “There will be an increase in children needing education, an increased amount of traffic and an increased amount of people needing health care. More people equals more problems.” Cllr Peter Stock wanted assurances that a number of matters listed in the report would come back before the council as reserved matters saying: “The residents have an opportunity to contribute to the development. “The application site is within the defined settlement boundary of Haverfordwest, but I want to know if the sewage system we have has the capacity to cope with this and whether or not the access coming on to Haven Road will be adequate.” A council officer added that Welsh Water have confirmed that there is sufficient capacity and Natural Resources Wales are also happy with it. It was also confirmed that the council would purchase the house on the right side of the current access for it to be demolished to improve visibility onto Haven Road. Councillors unanimously accepted the plans which will also come back as reserved matters.
