Newport Town Council recommends refusal-see comment below

Tal y Wern Parrog Road Newport SA42 0RP
Part demolition with alterations to dwelling and garage with replacement roof and green flat roofed 
extensions COMMENTS The subject property is clearly visible from
1 The coast path from Penbont to Parrog which is well used
2 The estuary
3 Views across the estuary
The subject property is adjacent to the Newport Parrog Conservation Area All the above make the site 
particularly sensitive The development as proposed would not preserve the character or appearance of 
the adjacent conservation area The proposed amendments to the dwelling significantly increase its size 
as viewed  from the estuary and footpath The design appearance and materials are all inappropriate The 
zinc overcladding is particularly inappropriate and gives the impression of an industrial building The 
glass balustrade is inappropriate for such a site The proposed design is not sympathetic  and is 
uncompromising Presently the property and the adjacent property (which may have been built at 
roughly the same time) are of a similar design and stand apart from nearby properties There is a certain 
symmetry presently The  inappropriate development of the subject property as proposed would be 
highlighted by the traditional design of the adjacent property

The Town Council have reviewed this application, and have raised the issue of light spillage, which we were pleased to see. Here’s an extract from their comments as retrieved from the planning papers:

New replacement residential dwelling
1 Newport Town Council is concerned that the glass fronted facade will lead to significant light spillage. This Council would like conditions imposed to control both internal and external light spill
2 This Council refers to the response of the Tree and Landscape Officer and his recommendation that a condition (in the terms set out in his response ) be attached to any consent granted This Council requests that the scheme of landscaping to be prepared pursuant to this condition will require natural planting that reflects the relatively rural nature of the site

Newport Pembs Golf Club

25th September 2020

NP/20/0371/FUL Reg date: 17-Aug-2020

Change of use from redundant Manager’s accommodation to self-contained holiday unit.

See this application and relevant details of previous disposal of accommodation at the Golf Club on planning website here:

Nevern and Moylegrove Community Council objected to this application. See below the reasons given for refusal. It is interesting to note the last two comments where the Council refers to the condition that disposal of the accommodation can only be as an integral part of the golf club, but acknowledges that the other apartments have been put up for sale even though there was a condition. All these apartments have now been sold and as the Council sagely notes the manager’s accommodation will also be sold. The reason this accommodation is now redundant is because of the sale of these apartments along with the sale of 9 hole of the Golf Course and previously 3 flats. There is little left to manage and this has all come about because of the absolute shambles made of the amendment to the original 106 agreement when the National Parks Authority granted permission to remove this covenant from the 3 original flats allowing them to be sold on the open market. In the process of amending the original 106 agreement, a massive blunder occurred with the failure to transfer paragraphs from the original 106 agreement to the amended 106 agreement, not as the monitoring officer has stated in his report an omission of the two words ‘other than’. This meant that all other accommodation and golf course that was tied to the Golf Club was not covered by the new 106 agreement. Read the full details on the history page.

Change of use from redundant Managers accommodation to self contained holiday unit
Newport Links Golf Club, Golf Course Road, Newport, Pembrokeshire. SA42 0NR

Nevern Community Council (by a majority vote) wish to OBJECT to this planning application.

The Council still feel that it is important to keep the Managers accommodation for 
future managers and to maintain the formality and appearance of the building.
For future ownership of the Golf Course, a manager/owner residence is desirable. 
The condition 'that the property can only be disposed of as an integral part of the golf club' 
should be upheld if permission is given by PCNPA planning committee.
The Councillors feel that if planning permission is granted then this building will be put up for 
sale as the other apartments were, even though it seems that there were conditions on these also.
