Ffos-Y-Fran Planning Application decision
- Categories : Press Release
- 26 Apr 2023
Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council’s Planning Committee has refused the application to extend the time for mineral extraction and restoration at Ffos-Y-Fran.
The proposal fails to meet the test of 'wholly exceptional circumstances,' contrary to National and local Planning Policy. It also fails to provide an adequate contribution towards the restoration, aftercare and after-use of the site, to the detriment of the surrounding environment, contrary to the requirements of Local Development Plan Policies.
