New Gower homes to meet local demand only, says AM Byron Davies
NEW houses should only be permitted in Gower villages to meet local demand, an AM has said.
Byron Davies said he felt new holiday homes were not acceptable.
"I have urged Swansea planners, who are working on the new local development plan (LDP), to ensure that any allocation of land for new houses should only be made if it is to meet a demand from people living locally."
The Tory AM for South Wales West said Swansea's draft LDP allocated land for up to 50 homes at Bishopston, Pennard, Penclawdd, Scurlage and Three Crosses. More may be permitted on the fringes of Langland and Dunvant.
"The villages on Gower are very important because they are separate and unique communities which have their own individual characters," said Mr Davies.
