Council to engage over proposed Raglan residential development site

Monmouthshire County Council is seeking the views of the community over a proposed planning application for residential development at Raglan.  A public engagement event will be held from 3pm to 7pm on Tuesday 30th January 2018 at Raglan Old School Hall, Chepstow Road, Raglan.

The site is located to the west of Chepstow Road and has been allocated for residential development in the council’s adopted Local Development Plan.  The site is expected to provide 45 houses, together with amenity open space and enhanced financial contribution for community facilities, education provision, and highway improvements in the area.  The council seeks feedback to guide development of the site, which will cover matters such as access, design layout, pedestrian and vehicle routes including sustainable transport links, open space and green infrastructure.

Feedback forms will be available at the event or can be viewed and submitted online at www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/chepstow-road-raglan-residential-development-site.  The deadline for responses is 12 noon on Monday 5th February.  Forms can be submitted by hand at the event, online or emailed to estatesmonmouthshire.gov.uk.

Councillor Bob Greenland, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for planning said: “We’re very keen to hear people’s views before this proposed development is submitted for planning permission.”

Further information will be provided at the exhibition where members of the council’s project team will be present to discuss the proposals in detail and to answer any questions.
