A planning application has been made to demolish an existing two-storey luxury home “The Highlands” – and its associated coach-house – which both stand in extensive elevated grounds off Old Barry Road, Penarth.
The grounds – including the site of the house and coach house – would then be developed as a compact estate of 9 two storey-four-bedroom detached houses – all with double-garages and gardens.
The new development would be served by an “extended adopted highway and new private driveway”.
Old Barry Road is one of the least-known roads in Penarth and comprises a narrow rural one-way loop off the main A4055 road between Baron’s Court and the Merrie Harrier. The site is bounded by the A 4055, Cogan Railway Station and Cogan Hill .
The application has yet to be discussed by either the Vale of Glamorgan Council or Penarth Town Council .
