The following planning applications were discussed and considered by members of Saundersfoot Community Council:

• NP/22/0416/FUL: Rear extension at 15, Oakhill Drive, Saundersfoot (Following consideration of all the information provided by the Planning Authority, Saundersfoot Community Council did not raise any concerns regarding this application and consider such a good use of the available space).

• 22/0081/PA: Proposed two storey extension, at The Leys, Narberth Road, Saundersfoot. The proposal will include demolishing the existing conservatory and single storey parts of the current building and rebuilding as a two storey home - (Councillors advised that they were unable to access the documents provided due to an error on Pembrokeshire County Council’s website. The Clerk is to advise the Planning Department and request that an extension be granted to enable the Council to consider such at its September meeting).

• NP/22/0334/S73: Ty Cariad (formerly Rose Cottage), the Ridgeway, Saundersfoot. Removal of condition No. 3 NP/16/0328/FUL – Holiday accommodation use only to full residential - (Councillors did not raise any objections or concerns regarding this application providing there is no alteration to the footprint).

• Councillors were also asked to consider a response to planning application - NP/22/0388/FUL for a replacement dwelling at Kenmore, Pen y Craig, The Glen, Saundersfoot.

Following consideration of this application at their July meeting, the Community Council requested a site visit which was unable to proceed due to Pembrokeshire County Council’s planning authority not having the staffing capacity to hold site visits at the moment.

The Clerk advised that several emails and telephone calls had been received raising concerns appertaining to this planning application.

Councillors consider that the proposed dwelling is overpowering to the neighbouring properties limiting their access to natural light and intruding their privacy; and that the proposed dwelling is not within keeping of the surrounding properties.

Councillors have requested that PCC’s planning department be notified of members’ disappointment that a site visit could not be facilitated.
