Plans to set up a caravan site on a working farm near a popular Anglesey seaside resort could be rejected by planners.
A request for a change in agricultural land use to accommodate 10 touring caravans in Bunwerth, Trearddur Bay near Holyhead is to be discussed by the Anglesey Council planning committee next week.
Officers recommend that the proposal be denied.

In a report to committee members, the proposal was presented by two local councilors for consideration.
Planning Officer Gwen Jones, in her report, states that the application site includes agricultural land within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
She adds, “As the existing screens on the site are empty or low in height, the northeast of the site would be most visible in views of a short stretch of the highway.
As the proposal is for white tourists, the local planning authority’s assessment is that the views of the site tend to be intrusive, although not all tourists would be fully visible. It is possible that part of everyone be visible indicating the extent of the proposed development.

“A landscaping plan was provided with the planning request. The landscaping plan would reinforce the existing screening and it is anticipated in the assessment that it will take 5-10 years to become significantly effective.
She concludes her report by stating: “The proposal is not considered to include high quality development and that it would also be detrimental to the character and appearance of the area which is part of the AONB”.
