Plans to increase the number of affordable homes to be built on land on Sarn are likely to be given the green light, despite the local community council against the changes.

Powys County Council wants to change plans for land adjacent to Sarn Village Hall where it had proposed five affordable homes.

Now, plans due to go before the county council's planning committee next week have seen the number of home increased to seven.

And the planning officer i recommending approval.

However, Kerry Community Council has said it is against the changes. It want just five properties on the land.

In response to the planning application, it stated: “Council object to these amended plans to erect 7 dwellings as it is felt that the style and number will significantly change the character of the village.

“They continue to support the original plan for five detached dwellings as discussed at the recent site meeting."

The meeting will consider the application next Thursday.

Planning officer Bryn Pryce said in a report to council: "Having carefully considered the proposed development, Development Management considers that the proposed housing development is of a modest scale and appropriate layout and will provide a supply of affordable housing in a rural area.

"On this basis, it is considered that the proposed development fundamentally complies with planning policy and therefore, the recommendation is one of conditional consent."
