Housing development planned for overgrown land at Pentraeth pub in Anglesey

THREE houses could be built on overgrown land adjoining a popular Anglesey pub if proposals are agreed.

The chalet-style three-bedroom properties are being planned on land beside The Bull Inn – known by some locals as ‘the Baby Bull’.

The 3,954 square metre site is in a residential area off the Pentraeth Road (A5025) approximately 800m to the north of Pentraeth village centre.

Anglesey County Council has been asked to consider a full application for the erection of the three new dwellings, with new associated parking and hard and soft landscaping.

The plans state the operation of the pub, known locally for its carvery, would remain unaffected by the development on “underutilised land” which is part of the public house site, to the east.

The new dwellings would also use the same access as the pub car park onto the A5025 Pentraeth Road.

The application has been made by Punch Partnerships (PML) Limited.

Documents submitted alongside the plans said: “Given the scale of the development, it is expected that there will be minimal traffic generated.

“The bungalows will have three bedrooms and three parking spaces each as per the local parking standards.

“Vehicle movements are anticipated to be minimal and are expected to have a negligible impact on the local highway network.”

They added: “The proposal utilises the overgrown land adjacent to the pub to accommodate the proposed dwellings while ensuring sufficient car parking spaces are available for the public house’s business, and as such will not affect the future viability of the public house.”

The ground floor would have a single bedroom, toilet, storage and kitchen/living/dining area.

A first floor landing would lead to a main bedroom, a single bedroom and the family bathroom.

Both bedrooms at first floor level will be served by a Juliet balcony.

The site is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the proposed scheme claims it will “retain the majority of existing trees”.

However the plans note two lesser category trees are being proposed for removal.

They added: “To mitigate the proposed tree removal, the replanting of these trees with similar scale in appropriate location is part of the proposed landscape plan.”

The plans claim: “It is considered that the proposal will result in a development which enhances the locality which has traditional characteristics.

“The proposed accommodation will add to the vitality of the area and help infill an underutilised part of Pentraeth.”
