This proposal will destroy our community. No amount of tinkering with an extra doctor at a satellite surgery or an extension to a school will solve the impact of such a large development. The idea of a road link via Highlands Rd will exacerbate our ever increasing traffic problems. Rural areas are important and need to be protected

Representation Summary:

The increase to traffic from the development of this proposal will have a negative impact on Old Colwyn. The village will struggle with the increase in traffic. Especially at the junctions of Peulwys Lane and Llanelian Rd, the roundabout on Abergele Rd, Highlands Rd and Abergele Rd. Traffic will try to go down Coed Coch rd, or onto Peulwys Lane, Peulwys Ave and Peulwys Rd bearing in mind Peulwys Avenue is a private Rd.
Putting in an extra doctor at a satellite surgery or an extension to local schools will not solve the impact of such a large development.

Representation Summary:

The infrastructure of the local area is falling far short of what would be required to accommodate the additional residents created by the new development.

It's a well known fact amongst local residents that the local GP surgery is already massively oversubscribed due the recent closure of another surgery in the village. Adding to that the fact that the local High School is also oversubscribed and has been for a number of years.

The transport links (roads/buses etc) are also somewhat of a nightmare at peak times and especially when the A55 traffic is affected for any number of reasons.

I strongly object for the following reasons:
Enormous increase in traffic
Where is the extra money to provide teaching for all the children.
The only doctors practice were not made aware of these proposals.
Residents have not been made aware.
Affordable Housing - £152,000 is not exactly affordable.
The impact on wildlife will be tremendous and trees must not be netted.
The land is in open countryside.

I wish to oppose the plan as I do not feel that there will be capacity in the local schools for more people or in cadwgan surgery with up to,a three week wait already for appointments. The building traffic will increase particularly on llanelian road and parking in the area will be even more difficult. I also worry that the houses may not only be for first time buyers. There is limited funding available and these problems will not be resolved. The same land is believed to,have been rejected previously. It won't benefit old colwyn

Representation Summary:

The proposed development would:
*Increase the risk of radon exposure by excavating the soil to build*
*Impose upon already existing large communities.
*Overstretch GP surgery and schools.
*Create undue stress for medical staff and teachers.
*Create longer waits for appointments/treatment, and reduce quality education by increasing teacher/student ratio.
*Increase congestion and heavy traffic along already overused surrounding roads.
*Increase safety risk at Llanellian Road/Peulwys Lane T-junction.
*Create increased traffic at Marine roundabout, raising safety concerns generally, considering the amount of incidents/collisions occurred over recent years.
*Additionally, school-children cross these roads 5-days a week, often not paying due care or attention.

Respondent: Miss Jo Hughes

Representation Summary:

The development would

Increase traffic on Llanelian Rd, Coed Coch Rd and Peulwys Lane - current roads are too narrow and many houses don't have access to off road parking. There is insufficient parking at Colwyn Bay football ground and during home games football supporters park on both sides of the road reducing this to a single line of traffic.

Place a burden on services, schools are facing funding cuts and Betsi Cadwaladr is struggling to recruit GPs to area.

Increase traffic on the marine roundabout

Impact local wildlife - hedge rows and green open spaces.

Representation Summary:

The land is outside of the settlement boundary and in open countryside. There will be an adverse effect on wild life and the health and well being of the residents of Old Colwyn, with the destruction of hedgerows, trees and footpaths. There is already an acute lack of amenity space in Colwyn. The infrastructure is not in place, all existing roads are unsuitable for any increase in traffic. Old Colwyn is already over developed.

Respondent: Mr Kevin Phillips

Representation Summary:

The proposed site is unsuitable for such a widespread development for several reasons revolving around the infrastructure of the area. Our main objection is the negative effect on transport, especially during rush hour. We fear Old Colwyn will become grid locked at key times of the day. We are also worried about drainage problems which have not been addressed on the promenade and will worsen with the new development above. Finally we worry that new schools and surgeries will struggle to attract suitable and properly qualified staff.

Full text:

We were shocked to hear of the possible new housing development in the fields above Gwynant, Old Colwyn. Initial emotions centred on sadness at the loss of such a large area of beautiful open farmland much appreciated by current residents. This was followed by questioning of the rationality of the proposal. Many services in Old Colwyn are already under severe pressure. Adding several hundred new properties would push many of these beyond breaking point. We acknowledge that planners have built in the need for a new school and doctors surgery but they have not addressed the difficulties that would result in staffing these facilities. In particular there is already a major problem finding GPs who are prepared to relocate to North Wales.Drainage is another significant issue. In recent years we have seen sewage and drainage structures unable to cope along the Old Colwyn promenade. Both Network Rail and Welsh Water, terrified of the cost implications, have tried to deflect responsibility to each other. Adding several acres of concrete and tarmac above this area is surely likely to have disastrous consequences for the crumbling system. Our final and most important objection is the effect on our road network. At busy times the roads in the area are congested to a point close to gridlock. The possibility of adding over a thousand new vehicles to this network will surely bring key hubs such as Marine Roundabout to a grinding halt.
We hope the planners responsible for the coming decisions will take on board the genuine concerns of local residents and realise that this proposal would be a disaster for our area.

Representation Summary:

This will significantly increase the volume of vehicles using Llanelian Road and negatively impact on the already congested Marine roundabout. Other routes, Coed Coch Road, Peulwys Lane, both currently bus routes, are severely congested by parked vehicles. The T junction between Peulwys Lane and Llanelian Road is already hazardous.
Pupils walking to the various schools in the immediate vicinity need to cross these already busy traffic routes and will be exposed to more risk.
The proposal will lead to further degradation of Doctor's services.
The difficulties presented by this site will disproportionately impact on the existing settlement of Old Colwyn.
