Pub and Restaurant in Cynon Valley Set to Include Hotel in Proposed Expansion
A pub and restaurant in the Cynon Valley could soon include a hotel if plans get approved.
The application for extensions to create a 10-bed hotel with bar, restaurant, welfare areas, car park extension and a landlord’s flat at Navigation House Hotel in Cilfynydd Road in Abercynon is set to be considered by councillors on Thursday, December 14.
The property has been used as a pub/restaurant with a landlord’s flat and family/playroom above for many years.
The existing use at the ground floor would be kept, along with the residential landlord’s accommodation (moved from first to second floor) but the proposal would introduce a new hotel to the site.
Overall, the development would be made up of a basement with bicycle store, barrel store, bottle store and store, a ground floor with public bar, family lounge, lounge bar and restaurant, kitchen, servery, glass wash and food store areas, customer toilets and plant room, a first floor with a meeting/function room, seven en-suite bedrooms and a linen store and a second floor with three en-suite bedrooms and living accommodation for the landlord which would incorporate a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.
The car park extension would increase the number of car parking spaces from 18 to 29 and two of the spaces at the southern end of the car park would
include electric vehicle charging points.
Secure cycle parking would also be provided within the basement of the property with space for up to 10 bicycles.
There were no letters of objection or representation received from the public about this application.
In recommending approval, planning officers said: “The proposed development would result in the substantial refurbishment and extension of an existing public house which would improve the visual aesthetic of the property and the visual amenity of the area.
“Whilst the rear extension is considered to be quite a sizeable addition to the
property, it would be sited at the rear of the property and would have a
sympathetic design that would ensure that it would not appear overly prominent within the plot or the wider area.
“Furthermore, the nearest neighbouring properties are situated a sufficient distance away and it is not considered that the proposal would have an adverse impact upon the amenity and privacy of
“The development would also result in an increase in parking spaces at the site
which would provide a betterment overall and the development is considered to be acceptable in terms of the impact it would have upon highway safety in the vicinity of the site.”
