Current Planning Issues

Tenby Civic Society makes comments on all planning applications affecting Tenby.

At the meeting held on 27th November 2018 the following planning applications were discussed and comments will be/have been forwarded to PCNP –

NP/18/0524 – the sub committee have discussed the amended proposals you forwarded to us for Fecci’s Tenby frontage NP/18/0524 and we are happy with the revised design ( two doors, existing shop window and sash windows above ) for the frontage and the reserving of details for the awning. Thank the officers concerned, and we are pleased Fecci’s could agree the amendments.

NP/18/0601/FUL New dwelling 9 St David’s Close Tenby
No objections. We do note that the trees listed in the tree report have already been felled, as occurred with the first application for the No. 9 house plot.

NP/18/0595/FUL Replacement glass balustrade Flat 1 Royal Victoria Court 5 Crackwell Street Tenby
1 We have no objections, but do note that experience with aluminum in salty exposed exterior locations is mixed; Stainless steel might give a longer life.
2 We are concerned that repair following a cliff fall at the rear of the nearby Harbour Heights holiday let on Crackwell Street above the harbour includes a substantial concrete structure appearing to extend the rear garden and incorporating an extended new powder coated fence.

NP 0602/3 Balcony and decking(Bridge St) rear of Brecknock House Crackwell St
1. our copy doesn’t have signatures in the necessary places, which could affect legality, whatever the decision
2. Just a practical point that wood decking becomes slimy and very slippery in wet weather over the winter, so is both a safety issue for holiday lets and and is one of the reasons decking has often been stripped out in Tenby after a few years.

NP0664 The Mews, Queen Victoria House, Heywood Lane, Tenby, SA70
The proposed reduction of the tree is eminently sensible; we welcome the action proposed.

PA/18/0677/Ful 45 the Glebe, Tenby – extensions.
No objection; the low angle hipped roofs are different to the main roofs, but there are a number of similar front alterations that fit in well already on the estate.

NP 0629 Oaklands, Marsh Road, Tenby, SA70 8EG
“Regularisation of existing residential unit” – No objections. ( bedsit above double garage in rear garden.)

NP0560 1, Oakridge Acres, Tenby, SA70 8DB
“Proposed new dwelling within grounds of existing dwelling
Site suitable for the proposal – no objections provided small decorative trees are planted to replace those to be lost.

Pre application proposal, rear of Knowling Mead, 29 dwellings. ( major proposal, for consultation prior to planning application ) Applicant has discussed it with planners who required west end of layout to be amended.
