Swansea councillors to run the rule on planned housing scheme on Christopher Rise, Pontlliw
A CONTROVERSIAL housing scheme in Pontlliw comes under the spotlight next week.
Outline permission is being sought for 11 detached houses on land next to 28 Christopher Rise.
The applicant's revised scheme resulted in seven letters of objection.
Concerns raised by local residents include increased congestion, noise and adverse visual impact effect.

There were also fears that the houses could lead to further development, leading to a loss of open spaces.
Pontlliw and Tircoed Community Council has objected to the plans.
Swansea planning officers have recommended the scheme for approval, subject to several conditions and the applicant providing two affordable "housing units" and a £38,352 education contribution.
Members of Swansea's Area 1 Development Control Committee are due to determine the application on Tuesday.
