A SECURITY fence has been approved by planners more than a year after it was put in place.

Raymond Jones, of Cladright Industrial Roofing and Cladding, asked Torfaen Borough Council for retrospective planning permission for the 1.8 metre high fence at its base at the Springvale Industrial Estate in Cwmbran in March this year.

The application showed the work had started in March 2022 and was completed in March this year, taking exactly a year and one week.

Councillor planners said the green, mesh fence was in line with planning policies and didn’t have any negative impacts such as a loss of parking spaces and its gates open inwards so as not to cause a hazard for others.

Permission was also sought, and approved, for a change of use of open space for placement of a storage container, which was also found to meet relevant policies.

As the application was made retrospectively the firm hadn’t made any provision for ecological enhancement and a condition will require it to put forward a biodiversity scheme to the council within three months.
