Starburst (UK) Ltd. value the input of the local community and welcome your comments on the proposed development.

Details of how to comment are provided below.

The site

The site is located at Newbridge Road Industrial Estate, approximately 1 mile (1.6km) southeast of Blackwood and approximately 1.25 miles (2km) west of Newbridge.

The application site comprises a parcel of land which is currently bare ground/rubble associated with Newbridge Road Industrial Estate. The wider uses surrounding the site are predominantly commercial or industrial in nature. Commercial terraces are located to the immediate north of the site, with a Sainsburys superstore and associated petrol station located to the east.  Residential development lies beyond the industrial estate to the south and west.

The boundary of the site is well screened by existing trees and shrubs which largely act to screen the site from the adjacent highways.




The Proposal

This application seeks full planning permission for the proposed erection of 4 units for Class B1/B2/B8 use together with associated parking, access, and landscaping at Newbridge Road Industrial Estate, Pontllanfraith, NP12 2YN.

The building has the potential to be subdivided into several units, subject to operator demand. Such flexibility will assist in the marketing and letting of the units.

The design and proportions of the proposed building will complement that of the surrounding industrial properties. Traditional cladding in grey together with roller-shutter doors and rainwater goods represent key features of the proposal. Four sub-units are to be provided with roller shutter doors whilst all bays will have a single door front and rear access. Blue trims/frames are proposed on the buildings elevations, alongside glazing located on the building’s eastern elevation.

The building proposed will be 73m in length, 22m in width and 8.49m in height, with a total area of 2,090sqm.

A new access point will be created as part of the development proposal. This will be located on the site’s eastern boundary and will join the existing internal estate road which connects to Newbridge Road to the south. Some trees will be lost to facilitate this new access point, however replacement trees are to be planted elsewhere on the site to mitigate against this.

In terms of parking, 18 car parking spaces will be provided including 2 disabled space; 2 electric vehicle charging bay; and 7 bays for heavy goods vehicles. There will also be space for motorcycle parking, along with one cycle store with capacity for 6 bicycles.
