LOVE was in the air at Ceredigion council with a marriage proposal on the cards at planning committee.

Andrew Rowlands of Glynarthen said if his application for an affordable home near Rhydlewis was granted he would propose to his partner.

Mr Rowlands was speaking at Ceredigion County Council’s development control meeting on May 8.

His application for a four bedroom affordable home had been recommended for refusal due to its size, making it unsustainable as an affordable home and location.

However he urged councillors to approve his plan, saying he had spent a long time looking for a suitable alternative.

Members applauded his declaration of love following his address.

He was described as a “rural character” by Cllr John Adams Lewis and there was support from others for the proposal, despite some concerns about the size of the property, with the application receiving the committee’s approval.

Committee chairman Cllr Bryan Davies said an update on whether she said yes or not would be given at the next meeting.
