Residents of a Conwy village have voiced objections to proposed 'ugly' holiday lodges at a local caravan site. Peter Davidson, the applicant, has submitted a request to Conwy County Council's planning department for permission to change the use of land at Tyn Terfyn Caravan Site in Llanrwst Road, Tal-y-Bont, to accommodate 15 timber holiday lodges.

The application is partly retrospective, as three lodges have already been completed and construction has begun on another five on the eastern part of the site. Despite this, council officers have indicated to the committee that they are inclined to grant planning permission.

However, several residents and the community council have written letters to Conwy County Council expressing their objections to the development. One of the objectors, wrote: "The proximity of the holiday lodges to my property is unacceptable," adding: "I live in a single storey property and can easily see the holiday lodges that have already been built from my front windows. They are ugly and out of character and ruin my view across the Conwy Valley." For the latest Welsh news delivered to your inbox sign up to our newsletter

She also expressed concerns about potential noise disturbance due to the close proximity of the lodges and an increase in traffic. Diane and Barry Williams also penned a letter to the council outlining their objections to the plans, citing concerns about the size of the units, parking, and drainage, reports North Wales Live.

Cllr Goronwy Edwards voiced his concerns about drainage in a letter to the planning department, stating that the expansion of the operation could turn the touring park into a 'residential dwelling development'. He also expressed worries that the proposed development would diminish the recreational space available to current residents.
