Report updated as follows:

Further late letters of objection reported.

 

Application refused contrary to officer recommendations for the following reason:

1.   The proposed 25m high chimney to serve the development would be a prominent visual feature which would be detrimental to the visual amenity of the area, particularly when viewed from residential properties in Clos Y Fendrod and from the Fendrod Nature Reserve and fails to preserve or enhance the visual setting of the Llansamlet Conservation Area and the Listed St. Samlet’s Church. The proposal is therefore considered to be contrary to policies HC1, HC2, PS2 and RP8 of the Swansea Local Development Plan 2019.
