Land Adjacent to Byrgwm, Brechfa, Carmarthenshire

JCR Planning have been instructed to assist in the preparation of an application for full planning permission for a Proposed Centre to support Mountain Biking & Walking, together with Associated Facilities, Dormitory Accommodation & Camping Pod Site at Land Adjacent to Byrgwm, Brechfa, Carmarthen. 

The proposals seek to construct a multi-purpose two-storey facilities building at the site with surfaced car parking and improved access off the B4310 Brechfa to Abergorlech road. The Centre will be sited alongside the existing mountain biking trails found upon neighbouring land at Byrgwm. The Centre will provide overnight accommodation in the form of dormitories, together with the siting of camping pods within the northern extent of the former grazing enclosure.

As part of the preparation of the planning application, we are now undertaking a formal pre-application consultation exercise as required by the Planning (Wales) Act 2015, and the Town & Country Planning (Development Management Procedure)(Wales)(Amendment) Order 2016 (the Order). The draft planning application comprises the plans, documents and statements listed below, which can be viewed by simply clicking on that item.

Commencing on 21st February 2018, comments and responses to the draft planning application are now invited from all parties to be received by no later than 22nd March 2018. Should you have any queries or questions regarding the scheme, or wish to make a formal response to the documentation, please e-mail us at, or write to us at JCR Planning, Unit 2, Business Workshops, Heol Parc Mawr, Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire SA14 6RE.
