Planning documents say that the proposed new homes “largely follows the existing layout of development and does have a similar form with more properties facing onto Heol Crwys and the creation of a more traditional street frontage”.

It also notes that “many of the existing bungalows are of a deteriorating condition and due to this, the existing properties do detract somewhat from the character and appearance of the area. The proposal will therefore provide significant visual enhancements in the area.”

A pre-planning consultation is being run by consultants Asbri Planning before a full planning application is submitted to Neath Port Talbot Council for approval.
