Porter's Road, Nantyglo, update

We have previously issued statements in relation to a piece of land in Nantylgo where land development had taken place in the absence of planning permission from Blaenau Gwent Council. A Temporary Stop Notice was served to the landowners and interested parties on the 5 April 2024 using the relevant powers under the Town & County Planning Act 1990.

On Wednesday, 1 May 2024, the Council obtained an Interim High Court Injunction in the following terms:

  • The landowners shall not carry out or cause to be carried out on the Land any engineering works or acts of development without the prior grant of planning permission, including in the form of the erection of any building or other structure or by way of material change of use.
  • The landowners shall not bring onto the Land any touring caravan, mobile home, or any other moveable structure save that six touring caravans stationed on the land at the date of this interim injunction
  • Other than the landowners no person shall reside in or take up occupation (including by staying overnight) of any of the touring caravans permitted to be retained on the land.

This is a temporary order until the case is back before the Court on 21 June 2024.
