Plans to turn a Cynon Valley pub into flats are due for a decision.
An application to turn the Full Moon Hotel on Cardiff Road, in Aberaman, into flats is set to go before Rhondda Cynon Taf’s planning committee on Thursday, December 14.
It would become seven self-contained flats with four one-bed flats on the ground floor, one two-bed flat and one one-bed flat on the first floor and one two-bed flat on the second floor.
The planning report said the site has been vacant for some time and appears to be in a state of some dereliction.
The main entrance and access to each ground floor flat would be from the front of the property, opening on to Cardiff Road.
Entrances to the first and second floor flats would be from the rear of the building, which would open onto the rear courtyard and parking
spaces associated with the building, with access from Wind Street.
Some demolition works are part of the plans, including a single-storey rear extension, which has since been demolished before a decision has been made, along with the removal of an outbuilding.
There would be five car parking spaces, along with bin and bike storage.
Two public letters were submitted in relation the application saying they were happy that works are being undertaken at the “unsightly” site but highway safety and parking issues were raised.
There was a suggestion that a grassed area opposite the development site is used for car parking, to help alleviate local parking problems.
Councillor Victoria Dunn gave support to bringing one and two-bedroom flats to the area.
Planning officers have recommended approval, saying: “The development would result in the beneficial re-use of a vacant and increasingly derelict building in a highly sustainable location.
“The proposed flats would provide a welcome contribution towards the local housing supply and result in a considerable improvement to the appearance of the property and street scene.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
