Plans for new health complex in Rhondda Cynon Taf approved

A NEW health complex which would be an extension of a current hotel and spa is coming to Rhondda Cynon Taf after plans were approved.

An application from Edwards Investments involves building a health complex and venue with associated amenities at Ty Maelwg on the road to Forest View in Ynysmaerdy, Llantrisant, close to the existing Lanelay Hotel and Spa.

The plans were approved by the council’s planning committee on Thursday, February 8.

The proposal will operate as an extension of the spa facilities at Lanelay Hall Hotel and Spa which is located at Ffordd Hann and will operate between 9am and 12am daily.

The report said guests, visitors, and staff will be transported between the two sites by an electric shuttle bus and all guests will be required to check into reception at Lanelay Hall first with no visitors travelling directly to the annexe.

The plans also include a bin store and landscaping works and the existing access will be upgraded with access off the unnamed country lane that runs through the surrounding forestry.

The application also involved an associated 52-space overspill car park nearby.

The health complex will consist of a large two-storey L-shaped building at the same location as a previous building that has been demolished.

There were no public objections received.

Planning officers, in recommending approval, said: “Whilst both elements of the application site are located outside of the defined settlement boundary the developments would form part of the existing Lanelay Hall Hotel and Spa which is a well-established hospitality and tourism facility offering a range of leisure uses and the development would provide a dedicated space for the business to operate and grow as well as provide additional off-street parking for visitors.

“As such the application would allow for the expansion of an existing hospitality business which would enhance the tourism offer of the local area and wider county borough.

“Furthermore, the scale and design of the proposals would have no adverse impact upon the character and appearance of the sites or the surrounding area, the amenity of residential properties, highway safety surrounding the sites or biodiversity.”
