Our Councillors play a major part in planning and flood issues in Caerleon

  • Our councillors have been heavily involved in the planning process leading up to an application to sell and redevelop the University site in Caerleon. They have been negotiating behind the scenes with the University to ensure the best possible outcome for the town, and will continue to play a key role in the remaining planning stages.

    There’s no formal planning application yet, only a dialogue opening up between the University’s agents and the Planning Department to determine whether there should be a full Environmental Impact Assessment. After that there will be a public exhibition at Newport High School Old Boys RFC at Yew Tree Lane off the Usk Road on March 17th, 18th and 19th; a four week consultation period; an appearance by University Representatives before a council scrutiny committee and a public meeting organised by the councillors. So, plenty of opportunities for people to express their opinions.
