Representation Summary:

Housing is needed in the area but I am opposed to such a huge development. This development will have a negative effect for local people.

There is a definite demand for housing in the area but the proposal for 400 houses is excessive. The green land lost will be disastrous for the village. people move here for the open spaces, green land and amazing views. The pressure on the NHS in the area will have a negative impact for all, we can't get an appointment now, imagine what it will be like with an extra 400 families. The pressure on local hospitals will also effect us all. It is so worrying for all the locals.
I've heard there have been other sites earmarked for development so why not spread the housing to all areas. We do not need or want a huge housing estate in this lovely VILLAGE not town/concrete city!
I feel very strongly against the development but as I said at the start we do need more housing for young families in the village. Surely there is a better solution.

Too many new homes in a village/town this size causing huge impact on services; changing the look, general feel, character and culture of the village; ? Welsh language; flooding issue; area of natural beauty sweeping down from the mountains at entrance to the village/town; increasing number of empty buildings in centre of the village; HUGE EYESORE and IMPACT!
There is a local need but this isn't for Llanfairfechan residents. It has been loved over many many years by many many people and families from the wider local area and this will change that forever. You've already ruined the beach!

400 new homes will have huge impact on the 'village' making it an urban commuter town for the A55.
It is such a beautiful green field area of immense natural beauty at the western entrance to the village and there is no way it will will blend in or be 'merged' in with the village. It will definitely be an eyesore and change the whole feel and look of the 'village' which won't be a village anymore, immediately.
Car Ffynnon - flooding risk. My friend suffered major flooding from the mountains at the back of her house - she lives between Llanfair and Aber.
Llanfairfechan is extremely popular with holidaymakers but even more so with people in the wide local area.
What is going to be done about the increasing number of empty buildings in the centre of the town?
Penmaenmawr surgery has had to be closed due to lack of ability to attract and employ GPs to the area. How will you realistically cope with higher demand for local services?

In my view the proposed site for Llanfairfechan housing and school is appropriate.
However, many residents do not want this green space to be used.

I sincerely hope that the houses that are to be built will be Eco friendly. That they will be truly affordable houses that our residents can afford, taking into consideration that income locally is below the National average.
It is of vital importance that the infrastructure is in place before the development goes ahead not just practical things like upgrading the sewage works but public transport and other facilities. We are a small community, 400 houses is a massive increase, care and consideration of residents should be a priority, it will take time to come to terms with this development.

Representation Summary:

Whilst we appreciate the need for housing; BUT building 400 new houses will have huge implications on Llanfairfechan.
For example:
Has the doctor's surgery been consulted.
The impact on Ysbyty Gwynedd.
Are police services geared up.
How will the traffic be organised.
The existing sewerage system is very old and will require a major overhaul.
We would query the demand for even more properties.
The idea that it will supply more 'affordable' housing is somewhat mythical.
This development will also impact on the local environment with the loss of yet another piece of green belt.

Representation Summary:

This land in question has always, in my living memory, been designated as agricultural land , being solely for the purpose of rearing livestock (see photographs).
I do understand that opportunities do exist to develop housing of some sort, even on agricultural land, and appreciate that local authorities must have a plan in place to address the housing shortage in Wales as in the rest of the UK.
Replacing such areas with a suggested development of 400 homes can only have a significant detrimental impact on this gateway to Llanfairfechan.

Representation Summary:

I object to this proposal due to the following considerations:-
- the natural beauty of this entrance to and exit of the village would be destroyed.
- significant increase in traffic congestion, especially at rush hour with traffic attempting to exit the development whilst others dropping children at school.
- significant disruption and destruction of quality of life for the elderly residents of Llys y Coed, directly opposite the proposed development, both during construction and after completion.
- significant negative impact on already overworked medical centre.
- employment opportunities for this influx of residents?
- regular flooding of Aber Road.

Representation Summary:

It is irresponsible of the Government of Wales in Cardiff to task every local council in Wales to identify sites within each of their respective areas of administration for the construction of houses, thus causing unnecessary worry and concern throughout the country. The Welsh Government's Town Planning Department must identify localities to foment and grow industry within reach of focal points of population, taking account of road/rail links and points of constriction, eg. Conwy tunnel. At a recent Llanfairfechan display, querying where locals could find work, I was told "Abergele"; that is some 18 miles away by the A55.

I object whole heartedly to development on this piece of land. My reasons are based on the impact that the development will have environmentally, culturally, historically and visually. This an area of natural beauty and a development of this scale will scar and blot the landscape beyond comprehension. With views out of the village up and into the Carnedau mountain range (part of snowdonia national park) this piece of land is stunninigly beautiful and forms a green area protecting the smalll rural community of Llanfairfechan.

The proposed development of 400 new houses on this site will stretch the local infrastructure.

Representation Summary:

Development on this site is a significant shift in land use on green / agricultural fields which will undermine the history & culture of the village and landscape.

The 'high sensitivity' of the area which includes views from and to the Carneddau mountains will be affected by the development. The views from Aber Road up to the mountains could be considered an area of natural beauty. The impact of development on this site needs to consider both the views to and from the Snowdonia National Park and the impact on the new heritage lottery funding for the Carneddau Landscape Partnership.
