Planning application lodged to transform eyesore site

An application for planning permission has been formally lodged by Dovey Developments to build a new multi million pound shopping centre on the Burrows Yard site.

The vast majority of residents will be glad to see that the council depot and the surrounding derelict sites are to be demolished to make way for the new retail centre proposals which feature five shops and a car park.

The planning application is now out for consultation and can be viewed by local residents at Port Talbot Civic Centre. Views and submissions on the new complex can be made to the council’s Development Control department quoting the application number P2004/1738.

The final decision on whether or not the full plans get the go-ahead will be made in the next few months by the impartial and non-political local authority Planning Decision Committee. Consideration will be given to the plans to ensure that the new buildings blend into the surrounding area with its other retail outlets.
