The Town Council Planning Committee voted unanimously to oppose this development

STOP PRESS 14th FEBRUARY 2015

The Town Council Planning Committee meeting held last Monday voted unanimously to oppose this development, (in its current form).

What happens now to the planning application?

  • The plans could be revised and resubmitted to the Town Council Planning 

  • Continuing dialogue between the developers and Monmouthshire County Council Planning Office.

  • Even if the Town Council refuse a revised plan, it can still be submitted directly to Monmouthshire County Council planning committee.

  • Letters of objection are still being received from government bodies and representatives.

  • The Gateway to Wales objection campaign continues to grow, but..........

We need your help?

  • There is still time to object - If you have not already done so, please write online or email to planning@monmouthshire.gov.uk quoting (DC/2013/01071).

  • Tell friends and relations how Monmouth community could suffer if approved.

Dixton Roundabout Retail Development

January 2015.

Notice of public meeting

Monmouth Town Council will hold a public meeting to discuss this application.  It will take place from 7pm on Monday 9th February in the main school hall at Monmouth Comprehensive School.

Proposed retail development of Tesco owned site by Dixton roundabout see here.

It is proposed that this development will consist of the following:

  • Public house with restaurant facilities.

  • Drive through fast food takeaway.

  • Retail pets store plus vets.

  • Drive through coffee House.

The Chamber and other organisations representing the town have identified a number of issues, which we feel mean that the site should not be developed. These are as follows:

  • Adverse effect on traffic flows at a busy roundabout.

  • Adverse effect on traffic on Dixton Road.

  • Site will only be visited by those using cars.

  • Flood risk.

  • No staff parking on site and lack of parking generally.

  • Proximity of a fast food takeaway to schools.

  • Downgrading of image of town and gateway to Wales.

  • Overdevelopment of site.

  • Adverse effect on local business.
