some members of the Community Council have reservations about this application for a fence in Wern Fach Court.
It isn't clear from the documents but it seems that the application is for a timber fence which is supported by a stone base and is of varying height. Some members feel that the materials will not compliment the brick houses in this Court. The fencing will also interrupt the open plan street scene that is supposed to be maintained throughout the estate.
It is our understanding that the only fences are in the rear gardens and are brown and 2 metres high. None in the front.
Some members feel that this planning application would not be in keeping with the appearance of the estate on the whole.
The following is taken from The Torfaen Decision Notice which was part of the house deeds when you purchased a house on “Pensarn Estate”
“Notwithstanding the provisions of article 3 schedule2 part 1 of the Town and Country Planning General Development Order 1988, no walls, fences, gates, piers, or other means of enclosure shall be constructed, erected, or placed on the open forecourt area of the proposed development.”
This is permanent and there is not a time let out on it.
