Residents oppose flat plan

First published in News

PLANS to demolish offices and build flats are being opposed by neighbours in the Gaer ward of Newport.

Members of the planning committee will consider the application by J Otley Rhodes for a site in Bassaleg Road at their meeting tomorrow.

The company wants to build 14 flats with associated parking.

Nearby residents have objected saying it would be an over-development of the site and it would worsen rush hour traffic problems.

Officers are recommending the proposal is turned down as they also feel it would be an over-development and it is a poor standard of design out of keeping with the character, appearance and urban form of the street scene.
