A PROPOSAL to move a caravan from one side of a pub to another is recommended for refusal by Ceredigion planning officers.
A static caravan on the eastern side of the Crown Inn, Llwyndafydd, was given a certificate of lawful development in September 2018 but a plan to move it to the north of the pub is considered unacceptable.
The pub is currently vacant and earlier this year planning permission was granted for its redevelopment to include the change of use of the first floor of the pub from a manager’s dwelling to rental rooms and the demolition of self-contained flat and the erection of a two storey extension to provide new kitchen and dining area.
The proposed re-located caravan will continue to be used as staff accommodation.
Planning officers state that where the caravan will be moved to is more visible and will have a “greater detrimental visual impact on the site and the surrounding area.”
The site also has an application under consideration for one open market dwelling and an affordable home on land adjacent as well as extant planning permission for a development in the pub car park.
A report to Wednesday’s (Aug 14) development control committee at Ceredigion County Council calls it “piecemeal development” of the site after initially receiving a “comprehensive re-development” application which was invalid.
Members will decide on the caravan relocation proposal only at Wednesday’s meeting.
