LAND with planning permission for 34 homes is being sold.

Plans for housing on the former site of Pontypool and District Hospital were given the green light in 2019.

An application for 34 homes on the Hospital Road site in Pontypool was unanimously approved by Torfaen council’s planning committee at a meeting.

South Wales Argus:

The outline application was first approved back in 2016 but the development was put on hold while the developers sought an agreement with council officials.

Now the land, off Hospital Road is up for sale.

The more than two acre site is available for offers in excess of £900,000.
