Two interesting planning applications
Wetherspoons plans to convert the Big Cam in Neath. The upper floors would become one- or two-bedroom apartments while the ground floor would either remain licensed, as a gastro-pub, or become office space. The idea seems to be to increase profitability. A fall in Wetherspoon's profits in the last financial year has seen a programme of pub sales elsewhere.
Following the "active homes" development in Neath by Newport-based Pobl group, zero-carbon homes for a site in Rhydyfro are proposed by Sero Homes of Cardiff. The intended Parc Hadau appears to be the first venture by Sero, who certainly make all the right noises but are reticent on their web-site about the background and qualifications of the principals.
