Parish Council wants your views on housing

Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council are interested in your views about the Preferred Sites for Pant and Llanymynech  identified by Shropshire Council in its Local Plan Review.

The review identifies proposals for new housing developments across the county, including 95 new houses in Pant and Llanymynech.

Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council’s next meeting to be held on Thursday 24th January at 7.15 will include a discussion about the Local Plan Review after which the Parish Council will prepare a response. This meeting will be held at Llanymynech Village Hall and there will be a short time for the public to ask questions.

The consultation sets out the preferred sites to deliver the scale and distribution of housing and employment growth during the period to 2036.

In Pant, a parcel of land along the main A483, to the north of the village, backing on to Penygarreg Lane, has been identified as the proposed site for 45 houses. In Llanymynech, land to the east of Barley Meadows has been earmarked for 50 houses.

At a recent consultation event for the Oswestry area a number of people from Pant attended and gave their views about the plans for the site, north of the village.

A common theme of comments was the problems with access to the A483, especially as new housing is likely to bring with it an increase in car usage. Other comments have been left on this website and you can see them here. https://pant.today/say-almost-100-new-houses-proposed-pant-llanymynech/#comments

It was made clear at the meeting that comments need to be made in writing to Shropshire Council and as well as attending the Parish Council, it is important that opinions are left using the link before Friday 8th February 2019 – https://shropshire.gov.uk/get-involved/local-plan-review-preferred-sites-consultation.

The site in Pant is currently agricultural land and, as the consultation document acknowledges, faces a number of constraints as a location for housing development, such as water pressure issues, protected species and the local historic environment.
