The “final hurdle” for the proposed Island Farm Sports Village appears to have been cleared.

The proposed development was referred to the Welsh Government’s planning division because Bridgend Council had a financial interest in the scheme – presumably as a land owner – as well as the development being a deviation from the adopted Unitary Development Plan.

However, the planning division have decided not to call in the proposal, meaning the final decision on the go-ahead rests with Bridgend Council, who voted in favour of the scheme (or more accurately voted not to refuse it) last month.

Bridgend Council’s planning committee are scheduled to meet again on August 25th.
