LOCATION

Raglan is a vibrant village settlement located in central Monmouthshire, with a population of approximately 1,900, and benefiting from a very accessible location to principle South Wales, Midlands and South-West road networks. The village is situated adjacent to the A40 and A449. The A40 provides a direct connection to the M50/M5 and A465, with the A449 connecting directly to J.24 of the M4.

The proposed development site is well situated on the eastern edge of the village and integrates well with the existing village. A new proposed pedestrian access link from the site, via Station Road, leads to the recently constructed state of the art Primary School, and to other village facilities and amenities including Puddleducks Childrens Nursery, Village Shop, Post Office, Award winning Butchers, The Ship Public House and the prestigious Beaufort Coaching Inn & Brasserie which is renowned for its speciality menu.

Raglan has a strong community with numerous local groups and societies for all demographics. There are good recreation facilities for children with community sport pitches and pavilion, Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and recreation ground at Prince Charles Road. A new Village Hall/Community Hub, supported by S.106 funding from this development, is also proposed.

A regular bus service runs via Raglan to the local towns of Monmouth & Abergavenny where there is a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. Secondary education is also provided at Monmouth which benefits from both private and state schooling.

PLANNING

The site Promoter, Richborough Estates, submitted an outline Planning Application for the Site. Planning Application Reference DM/2018/01050. The planning application is for Residential Development of up to 111 dwellings, new vehicular access from Monmouth Road and emergency vehicle access to Station Road, public open space and associated landscaping, engineering and infrastructure works. The planning application provides for the provision of affordable housing at 35%. Planning Permission was approved by Monmouthshire County Council at Planning Committee on 6th November 2018, and subsequently at a Special Planning Committee on 6th March 2019.

Monmouthshire County Council was required to refer the application to Welsh Government as the scheme met the criteria for a 'Notification Development', being an unallocated site, exceeding 6 hectares. The Welsh Government have provided an intervention letter confirming that the Planning Application will be subject to a 'Call In' for an independent Planning Inspector to assess the application and make a recommendation upon this. The planning Hearing for the Inspector to address elements of the Planning Application is set for the 5th June 2019. The Welsh Government will provide their determination of the Planning Application following receipt of the Planning Inspectors decision.
