 7.1  FPL/2021/144 – Full application for part demolition works together with alterations and extensions to create additional units at Llys y Gwynt, Llanfawr Close, Holyhead

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee at the request of a Local Member.  At the meeting held on 1 September, 2021 it was resolved to visit the site.  A virtual site visit took place on 15 September, 2021. 

 

Public Speaker

 

Mr Gwyndaf Williams, in support of the application, said that the application is to modernise and build additional units for young homeless people at Llys y Gwynt. This development, if permitted, will be a huge boost in terms of improving the quality of life and opportunities for these young people.  He noted that it is important that the Planning Committee is given the following information as they consider the planning application to improve and increase the size of the scheme.

  • Llys y Gwynt was developed in 1998 by Cymdeithas Tai Eryri as a unit that provides 9 beds for young homeless people on the Island.
  • The scheme is managed and staffed 24 hours a day by Digartref Cyf.
  • Over the years, the scheme has provided a home for many of the Island’s young people and has given them an opportunity to improve and flourish.
  • As the scheme has been operating for 23 years, the building needs to be upgraded to meet current standards and, due to an increased demand for the service, an opportunity exists to provide 3 additional units which will increase the number of units from 9 to 12.
  • The improvements proposed involve investing around £1.1m in the scheme and a £513k Homelessness Prevention grant has been secured from Welsh Government due to the increased demand for this type of service.
  • During the 12 months ending 31 March 2021, 84 young people were referred to the service offered by Llys y Gwynt.
  • 34 of the 84 individuals were accepted by the scheme. Of the 53 that were not accepted, 12 were refused because the risk of accommodating them was too high, proving that a detailed assessment is undertaken before accepting any young person on the scheme.
  • Of the 38 accommodated at Llys y Gwynt during the year in question, 4 were care leavers who had been in the Council’s care.
  • During the year, there were 11 incidents where the emergency services had to be contacted. 4 because they needed an emergency ambulance, 2 because a child was missing, and 5 due to low-level anti-social behaviour. This incidence rate is low and very similar to the levels seen in general rental flat schemes.
  • Anglesey County Council’s Director of Social Services and Head of Housing are supportive of this proposal to improve the provision at Llys y Gwynt.

The Planning Enforcement Manager reported that the application is a full application for part demolition works together with alterations and extensions to create 6 additional unit as a hostel to provide accommodation and support for young people having 9 bedrooms with occupants sharing  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.
