THREE new urban areas for the county have been submitted as candidate sites for the next local housing development plan.

A total of 220 candidate sites have been submitted to Monmouthshire County Council (MCC) from across the county for a range of uses, including residential, employment, (industrial and commercial) and recreation.

Mark Hand, head of planning for MCC said that any submissions at this stage are merely to assist the council in understanding what land is available from 2021, the end of the current plan, to 2033.

He stressed that the list is not a commitment from the council and some of the sites may not be taken forward to the final plan. Some sites have plans submitted already, such as the controversial 111 homes in Raglan adjacent to the Monmouth Road. 

Two of the areas are in Penallt and both are near to the Croes Faen crossroads:-

The area shown on the left is new and is to the west of (a) the two new houses nearly completed, and (b) the proposed 10 house development adjacent to the latter.

The left hand area measures some 1.92 hectares (4.7 acres) and that on the right is 0.49 hectares (1.2 acres).

The full list of submitted plans for the Monmouth area can be found here.
