Plans have been submitted to build a tourist development between Aberhafesp and Caersws.

The applicant, Mr Nissamdeen from Newtown, wants to build three holiday cabins on land known as Clear Wood Field, just off the B4568 road.

Agent, Geraint Jones of McCartney’s planning and survey, explained the proposal in a design and access statement.

Mr Jones said; “The development is for three cabins and each will measure 13.716m by 6.012m.

“The area is a rural location, however the site benefits from the close proximity to the neighbouring villages of Caersws and Aberhafesp and the town of Newtown.”

Mr Jones said that the cabins could be classed as mobile homes and are “compliant” with the caravan act.

He said if needed they could be taken away.

The statement added that Caersws has wide range of services and facilities, including a garage, shops, public houses, community centre and a school.

Mr Jones also believes that Caersws has good transport link to the road network as well as the railway.

Mr Jones continued: “New tourist development is encouraged because of its contribution to the economy in terms of visitor spending, supporting local business and employment generation.

“The scheme’s contribution to tourism particularly in a rural setting is of great benefit to the area as a whole.

“The design of the proposal would not adversely detract from the beautiful
scenery and surrounding area.”

The documents add that Mr Nisamdeen lets the field to farmers who use it for grazing at the moment.

The proposal would only use a third of the field.

If the application us successful the remaining land would become wildflower meadows to “further enhance” the biodiversity of the area.

According to the statement, Mr Nisamdeen has owned the land for a “significant period of time” and had hoped to build houses there.

In the pas,t he has tried to have the land included in the Local Development Plan (LDP) as an allocated site for future development.

Mr Jones explained: “This was unsuccessful due to the location between the
villages of Caersws and Aberhafesp.

“However as part of the process the professional lead at the time was extremely helpful and advised Mr Nisamdeen to look into the tourism route should he wish to develop the site.”
