A CONTROVERSIAL planning application for up to 100 homes on a former quarry site has been officially submitted.
The development on the site of the former Plas Gwilym Quarry in Old Colwyn first came to light after a consultation period in February 2016 when residents raised concerns the plans which included the removal of Craig Road would place strain on neighbouring roads.
Renew Land Developments who purchased the site in 2014 want to build 80 to 100 homes on the Llysfaen Road site.
Cllr Cheryl Carlisle and Cllr Brian Cossey are arranging a series of public meetings.
Cllr Carlisle said: “The plans were only submitted to Conwy Planning Department late last week, and have not yet been studied by residents and planning officers. On initial inspection it seems they have greatly increased the number of houses, despite all the objections made during the developers consultation period at the beginning of this year.”
A design and access statement produced by planning agents Barry Newcombe Associates on behalf of Renew land Developments for Conwy’s planning department reads: “The amount of units on site will be within the range of 80 to 100 units with the eventual figure being dependant upon the size of individual units.”
Barry Newcombe Associates were contacted for comment.
