The Proposal

Brooke Smith Planning have been instructed by Grafton Group (UK) plc to prepare and pursue planning permission for five residential dwellings on land at Merthyr Road, Tongwynlais.

A draft layout plan has been prepared by HollowayFoo Architects, which currently proposes five detached residential dwellings. Each property will be allocated its own car parking space/garage and amenity space. The development will be accessed via a new access road which will run along the eastern boundary.
