Land West of Swanbridge Road

Land West of Swanbridge Road - Sully - Vale of Glamorgan

Taylor Wimpey is proposing to submit a planning application on Land West of Swanbridge Road within the near future. The application will be an outline application for up to 150 dwellings, new pedestrian links and open space.

  • Overview

    The Vale of Glamorgan Council resolved to grant planning permission for up to 350 new dwellings on the land at Cog Road in May 2016 (Ref:2013/01279).  Work is ongoing to secure the legal agreements necessary to allow the planning permission to be released and this is anticipated to be resolved in the next two months. The approved, albeit indicative, master plan for the 350 house is shown on the right.

    Since the submission of the original planning application, Taylor Wimpey has secured an option to purchase land south of the hedgerow, which makes up the remainder of the land allocated for 500 dwellings within the emerging Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan. 

    Taylor Wimpey is proposing to submit a planning application on Land West of Swanbridge Road within the near future. The application will be an outline application for up to 150 dwellings, new pedestrian links and open space. The development will be in addition to the 350 dwellings already approved. The proposed master plan is shown on the bottom right.

    The application site forms around one third of the land within housing allocation MG2 (46) of the emerging Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan.

    The draft documents that will form the planning application to be submitted can be downloaded from this page. Associated documents which will accompany our planning application can be viewed by clicking here

  • About the site

    The application site is situated to the east of Sully on land referred to as Land West of Swanbridge Road (South). 

    The site is bounded to the north by a hedgerow bisecting two agricultural fields which together form  housing allocation MG2 (46) of the November 2013 Deposit LDP. The western boundary of the site comprises existing residential development. The eastern boundary is defined by Swanbridge Road. There is no physical southern boundary to the application site, but the red line boundary abuts an agricultural field.

    The site measures approximately 6.8ha.

    Hedgerows form the majority of the boundary to the site, within individual small access points punctuating the hedgerows.

    The land is currently let to an agricultural tenant and is used for arable farming.

    The site forms the southern section of housing allocation, MG2 – (46) of the Deposit Draft Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan (November 2013).

    The extract from the LDP allocation is shown below:

  • What's proposed?

    whats proposed

    The application seeks to provide:

    • Up to 150 new homes. With a range and choice of house types and size, from 1 bedroom terrace starter homes through to large keynote detached housing;
    • A network of open spaces including areas for informal recreation;
    • New roads, parking areas, accesses and paths and;
    • A comprehensive landscaping scheme and ecological mitigation measures

     

  • Community benefits

    The drainage strategy acknowledges the incidences of localised flooding due to surface water and provides for betterment over the existing situation by capturing surface water and discharging it from the site in a controlled manner, therefore providing betterment over the current situation.

    The proposed development will trigger significant financial contributions towards education provision, community facilities and sustainable transport in the local area, proportional to the additional levels of housing proposed. Likewise there will be very important economic gains from the scheme in the form of the jobs created during the construction period, supply chain benefits and an increase in local spending once the development is occupied.
