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

NP/21/0191/FUL Proposed Replacement Dwelling & Associated Works.

Nevern Community Council’s comment below:




Members of Nevern Community Council strongly oppose the demolition and rebuild of Ty Rhibyn Isaf, Newport, Pembrokeshire. They fully support the Consultation carried out by Mr. Scourfield

‘The planning system must take into account the Welsh Government’s objectives to protect, conserve, promote and enhance the historic environment as a resource for the general well-being of present and future generations. The historic environment is a finite, non-renewable and shared resource and a vital and integral part of the historical and cultural identity of Wales. It contributes to economic vitality and culture, civic pride, local distinctiveness and the quality of Welsh life. The historic environment can only be maintained as a resource for future generations if the individual historic assets are protected and conserved.’

By demolishing the existing cottage, does not in the view of the councillors, ensure that the value of the landscape and the distinctive character and special qualities of the area is protected; this will be the loss of another local farmstead, and in its place an unacceptable and inappropriate proposal. The property has been designed with the forms and material palette of rural buildings that house livestock, with no consideration to the visual aspect. This build is totally different to any other dwelling in the area, and is certainly not in keeping with this area, it can be seen from the lane and will be viewed as a peculiar monstrosity.

It is unfortunate in Pembrokeshire that demolition of dwellings seems to be becoming more common and this does not sit comfortably with the local residents. It is our heritage, our culture, our past that is being demolished. Our relatives lived and worked in these wonderful stone-built houses, and these demolitions have to stop. Retention of these properties, whether listed or not, with the repair and re-use as a family dwelling is paramount. If a building plot is what is required then maybe this is what should be sought.

The plan report says that there will be no increase in traffic, there will obviously be an increase in traffic, as there is an increase in bed space, and with parking to the side of the dwelling and a single car port compared to a single car garage as there is now.

In National Parks, planning authorities should give great weight to the statutory purposes of National Parks, which are to conserve and enhance their natural beauty (in this case the buildings) wildlife (the natural surroundings and open spaces) and cultural heritage, and to promote opportunities for public understanding and enjoyment of their special qualities. Planning authorities should also seek cultural well-being of their local communities and act in the long term to respect environmental limits and operating in an integrated way so that resources are not irreversibly damaged.

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
