A GAMING business could be given permission to use 12 large storage containers to store cuddly toys.

An application for planning permission for the containers will go before members of Denbighshire’s planning committee next Wednesday.

The plans would see  the use of part of the car park at Derwen House off Ffordd Derwen in Rhyl for the siting of storage containers in connection with the use of adjoining buildings.

The containers would be used by the business which is operating out of the office space in Derwen House.

The containers would be sited in a row, and each would measure 2.4 metres in width by 12.2 metres in length, with an overall height of 2.9 metres.

The applicant operates an arcade business and the containers would be used to store items like prizes for gaming activities such as soft toys.

Planners have recommended that members of the committee vote in favour of granting planning permission.

A report before councillors said: “Whilst noting the concerns of the town council, it is the opinion of officers that given the employment designation and the existing uses on the site, that the proposal will not have an unacceptable impact in relation to residential amenity, highways safety and other relevant policy tests. It is therefore recommended that permission be granted.”

But in a letter to the committee Rhyl Town Council objected to the plans.

It said: “The town council considers that the proposed development will result in an over intensification of the site, the loss of car parking spaces for the business resulting in on street parking in adjoining roads, represent a negative visual impact for residents of Ffordd Derwen.”

As well as this issue it raised concerns over additional large vehicles entering and leaving the site and impact on highway safety.

It added: “In the event that the local planning authority grant permission for the development a condition is requested to limit the hours of operation to protect the residential amenities of neighbouring properties on Ffordd Derwen”.
