  1. Correspondence


The following correspondence was received from Cyngor Sir Ceredigion.

Planning decisions:

A130154 – approved

A130640 – approved

A130835LB – approved

A130798 – approved

A130891 – approved

Notification of Tree Works – Consultation:

The Tollhouse, Llanbadarn Road

The following correspondence was received from the Planning Inspectorate, regarding the following appeals:

A130126 - allowed

A130591 – refused

A130701 – refused

The meeting noted that there is an issue with planning permissions for late-night take-away food establishments in Aberystwyth town centre (this issue is particularly relevant to application A130701, Marco’s, 11 Pier Street).  Closing times vary from 11.00 pm to 4.00 am.  It appears that Ceredigion County Council have tried unsuccessfully to ensure the same closing time for each establishment.  Those establishments which only have planning consent to close at 11.00 pm remain open in defiance of their planning permission.  The chairman is to write to CCC to ask them to enforce permission for these establishments.

  1. Local Development Plan (LDP) Draft Supplementary Planning Guidance Consultation: Affordable Housing, Special Landscape Areas, Open Space


The consultation documents were due to be considered at this meeting before a response is sent to CCC.  However, due to the length of these documents and the fact that the consultation remains open until 28 February 2014 the chairman asked members to view these and send any comments they may have to him so that they can be collated and a response sent to CCC.  Hard-copy versions are available in the office and the chairman is to email members with the links to the documents.


  1. To consider planning applications

A130705 / A130706LB (Amended Plans)Conversion of, and minor alterations to existing promenade building to provide 18 hotel bedrooms, restaurant and reception.  Demolition of rear extensions and replacement with 5‑storey extension containing 45 hotel bedrooms and associated works.  Alterations to Bath Street Car Park to provide 40 parking spaces.

Bay Hotel, 36 Marine Terrace, Aberystwyth.

Objection.  The rear of the proposed development is not in keeping with the character of the area.  The rear should be a floor lower with a pitched roof.  However, Aberystwyth Town Council appreciates that the original frontage is retained.


A130741AV (Amended Plans)

Display of signage

Lloyds Pharmacy, 8 North Parade, Aberystwyth

No objection.



Demolition of one brick chimney

Ty Talbot, Market Street, Aberystwyth

Objection.  We consider that the proposal would diminish the vertical dimension of the Aberystwyth townscape.


Development of a 4 storey building comprising of 22 affordable units, access arrangements and associated works

Tabernacle site, Mill Street, Aberystwyth


Mr Keith Davies, Affordable Housing Officer for Ceredigion Council, addressed the meeting and answered members’ questions regarding this application.

No objection.  Concerns were expressed, however, regarding a number of issues: the lack of parking spaces in the area; the location of the site opposite the access to the service area of the Tesco food store (part of the Mill Street Car Park site), which would lead to increased congestion, particularly as the road narrows in this area; the feasibility of refuse collection from the site.  We wish to see the road widened closer to the petrol station on Mill Street.  It is unclear what amenity facility (such as a courtyard) would be available for residents.  We ask that a condition of tenancy is that residents have no vehicles (similar to a condition already applied in Cardigan). We also ask that the developers keep the original features of the site as far as possible, including the walls and railings in Powell Street.  We would also wish to see the bronze angel returned to its original plinth, at the Powell Street end of the site and that a plaque is put in place to mark the previous use of the site. 


Erection of a two storey rear extension

23 Third Avenue, Penparcau, Aberystwyth

No objection.


The application is for mixed use (B1 and A2) of office rooms 007, 008 and 009 in the building referred to (Harbour House).  The current planning consent is B1.

Harbour House, Y Lanfa, Trefechan, Aberystwyth

No objection.

Any comment on the LDP should be forwarded to Cllr Endaf Edwards before 12 pm on Friday 28th February 2014.

Cllr Mair Benjamin asked if there was an update on the service area to Tesco. (opposite the Tabernacl Development). No update received to date. Request to follow up.

Cllr Ceredig Davies asked if there had been a response from Highways regarding the widening of the road which was a condition of planning permission for the Tabernacl Development.

Bay Hotel application was withdrawn prior to CCC Planning Committee. Owner wanted time to re-draw plans as a result of recent storm damage. The application may be re-submitted in the next couple of months.

      As shown in attendance register.

2    Declaration of Interest



      *“Morlan” not available for Annual Meeting of Council and Mayor Making on Friday 9th

        May 2014.

        Options considered: “Morlan” Saturday 10th May 2014.

        Neuadd Goffa and St Anne’s Church Friday 9th May. (Check on drinks Licence). Neuadd

        Goffa £12.00 per hour charge, cost of St Anne’s currently not known. Neuadd Goffa for

        Mayor making ceremony. Cllr Brenda Haines to check on the availability of Holy Trinity

        for Mayors Sunday Service on 11th May and also request that her Chaplin conducts the

        service if possible.

        Mayors Parade 10th May 2014.It was suggested that the office be responsible for the

       *Letter from Mr Allan Lewis re the Farmers Market requesting that a solution needs to

         be forthcoming to run and fund the market and that he was looking to Aberystwyth

         Town Council to consider options. Members requested that responsibilities and

         financial implications are required prior to proceeding further. 




3     Update on Premises.

       Cllr Ceredig Davies stated that he had met with Mr Huw Bates the solicitor acting on

       behalf of Aberystwyth Town Council. Members requested clarification on an inclusive

       annual rent of £15000.00 and that of the Service Charges. Clarification was also needed

       as to who was to sign the lease on behalf of the council on completion of handover.       

4    Allotments Update.

      At a recent meeting between Aberystwyth University, Ceredigion County Council and

      the delegated member from Aberystwyth Town Council to reappraise the allotment

      project it was agreed that the venture should now be called “Growing Spaces” with the

      potential for planting in February of 2015. A “memo of understanding” needs to be 

      implemented and it was recommended that the Legal Department of the University

      undertake this task. A set up fee of £45.000 was required with a suggested contribution

      of £15.000 from Aberystwyth Town Council. It was understood that Ceredigion County

      Council would be holding a meeting with the Minyddol Allotment holders to inform

      them of soil report surrounding their respective plots. It was further recommended that

      Faenor Community Council be invited to appoint two councillors to represent them in

      order that they be kept fully informed of the progress of this joint venture.

5   Minyddol Muga and Adizone.

     Little progress has been forthcoming on this issue. It was therefore suggested that a

     meeting should be convened with all users of these facilities.

6   Skateboard Park.

     Soil analysis of the area had proved to be good which would minimise maintenance costs.

     A meeting was to be held on Tuesday 11th February with relevant members and the

     appointed contractor to undertake the installation work.

7   Street Banners.

     Concerns had been expressed about the “Insurance” for such banners. Members were

     informed that providing the catenary wires were adequate then banners could be

     erected. A risk assessment would however have to be taken on an annual basis to ensure

     adequate insurance cover.

8   North Road Park.

     Members were informed that branches of trees had been broken either through

     vandalism or as the result of the recent storms. Cllr Ceredig Davies indicated that he was

     prepared to cut the fallen branches until such time as they could be removed. Cllr Aled

     Davies was requested to investigate the provision of a sign for the park.

9   Promenade Lighting.

     The replacement of the Festoon Lighting could possibly be included as part of the funding

     made available following the storm damage. Three lighting companies were requested to

     provide informal tenders for the lighting scheme. Members thanked Cllr Ceredig Davies

     for all the hard work he had undertaken on this matter.

10 Promenade Flag.

There was a need to remove and replace the current flag on the Castle Grounds and Cllrs                                                                                               Aled Davies and Martin Shewring offered to investigate. Cllr Mair Benjamin notified members that she had a replacement flag.

11 Outstanding issues.

     (a) St David’s Day Parade. It was noted that the Mayor would be receiving an invite from

          the organisers to participate in the parade.

      (b) Office Furniture. It was decided that no further progress be made until the building

            works had been completed and the premises handed to the council.

      (c) Cycle Race 23/25 May 2014. Members were informed that at a meeting on 5th

           February with members of the University and Aberystwyth cyclists confirmed that

           the event would take place on 25th and 26th May 2014. Cllr Ceredig Davies 

           recommended that Aberystwyth Town Council takes full advantage of the publicity

           and publicity material that would be generated for the event to benefit the town.

     (d) Twinning. The Mayor reminded members present of the Twinning Event taking place

           in the Morlan on Saturday 22nd March.

     (e) Yellow Lines. Members were reminded to submit their suggestions for the

           implementation of Yellow Lines.

Cllr Lucy Huws:  How set in stone is the design?

Minute 167:  CCTV provision in Aberystwyth.

Ceredigion County Council withdrawing £150K support for provision which will finish at the end of March 2014.

8 Cameras.................................................£5,716.00 per annum.

                                                                          £5,000.00 network link

                                                                          £13,000.00 maintenance link.

Aberystwyth Town Council contribution per annum £11,716.00


  • No monitoring facility – The cameras will be directional ie. being constantly recording so the police can use as a tool.
  • CCTV is a strong tool for crime reduction
  • CCTV is required in order to retain the Purple Flag.
  • No staff to supervise the monitoring of the cameras.
  • Send a letter to the Police and Crime Commissioner expressing disappointment that he is not providing any funding.
  • Could Aberystwyth Town Council ask the University for a contribution and to assist with the License.?

Cllr Mair Benjamin suggested writing to the Chamber of Trade and Aberystwyth Business Club asking for matched funding

Cllr Jeff Smith suggested that the council ascertains how many businesses have their own CCTV facilities.

Cllr Lucy Huws suggested a comparison between the cost of a policeman on the street and the cost of CCTV. Include in letter to Police Commissioner.

Cllr Brian Davies asked if Lampeter and Aberaeron would be willing to contribute a third of the cost of the network link and maintenance.

(Lampeter and Aberaeron have agreed.  However, Tregaron and New Quay have withdrawn from the scheme).


Cllr Ceredig Davies stated that CCTV protected businesses and people coming into the area. It is unfair that we should be paying for this. Has CCTV reduced the number of police on the street? It should be a countywide solution to a wider problem.


Cllr Kevin Roy Price asked how does the network link to Lampeter and Aberaeron work? Is it fair that we have to pay for the cabling?


Cllr Endaf Edwards asked why Cardigan was not included in the calculations?  They could be “Conservative Cashmates” We are not going to back the original plan of paying in line with prior plan.


It was agreed to write to parties immediately and refer to General Management Committee.


Minute 168: Staffing matters.

This was an exempt item and members therefore resolved to go into committee in line with legal procedure.
