P-04-365 Protect Buildings of Note on the Mid Wales Hospital Site. Correspondence – Brecon Beacons National Park to the Chair. 21.03.16


FAO William Powell AC/AM

I refer to your letter dated 29th February 2016 concerning the above matter.  Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you.

By way of an update, I can confirm that the Authority is still awaiting the submission of a Development Brief by the landowner/developer relating to the Mid Wales Hospital site. 

You will be aware that the site is allocated within the Adopted Local Development Plan (December 2013) as a ‘mixed use’ site - it is a policy requirement that such sites first agree a development brief with the Authority prior to the submission of a relevant planning application.  The intention is that the development brief will be adopted by the Authority as Supplementary Planning Guidance and, accordingly, would be a material consideration in the determination of relevant future planning applications pertaining to the site.   Unfortunately, I cannot offer you a likely timescale for submission.

I trust this is of assistance to you at this time.  However, should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
