A PLANNING application that was submitted to Bridgend council for the creation of business units and a new nursery in Coity, Bridgend, looks set to be given the go ahead this year, it is understood.
The mixed-use development that was proposed for land near the Coity bypass, off the western roundabout, could see a two phase development of a nursery facility with two retail units and two business units created next to the roundabout.
The site that lies to the south of the Coity Bypass and north of the Brackla Industrial Estate on 1.13 hectares of land, could see the introduction of a nursery that includes large nursery rooms, safe and enclosed external space, a kitchen, stores, and front office and staff room.
The neighbouring business and retail units would be based more centrally in the plan with the layout allowing for pedestrian/cycle access to the northern and southern sides of the site.
Plans for landscaping, parking and electric charging spaces are also included within the proposals, with what is described as potential to provide a vehicular link through the site to the existing Brackla Industrial Estate in the future.
Cllr Amanda Williams who is a local member for Coity Higher said: “I think this development would be a welcome move for the area and for people in the local community. Hopefully it will bring more jobs here as well as some shops for nearby people who don’t drive to be within walking distance of.”
