Port Talbot man appeals to Welsh Government over rejected planning application
A PORT Talbot man has asked the Welsh Government to rule on an appeal over a Swansea Council planning decision.
Andrew Larsen, of Maes Ty Canol in Port Talbot was turned down in his quest for planning permission to convert a home at St Andrews House, Eaton Crescent, Swansea, into five flats and add a single-storey rear extension.
The council said: "The applicant has failed to provide adequate parking provision to cater for the increase in requirements in accordance with the council's adopted parking guidelines and as a result this would result in an increase in on-street parking and indiscriminate parking to the detriment of highway safety."
The matter now rests with the Welsh Government's Minister for Housing who will appoint an inspector to consider written evidence and carry out a site visit before making a decision.
