GrWP llandrillo menai's new sports hall at coleg menai, llangefni
About the application
Cadnant Planning Ltd has been commissioned by Grŵp Llandrillo Menai to undertake a pre-application consultation (PAC) in respect of proposed development on Land at Coleg Menai, Ffordd y Coleg, Llangefni, LL77 7HY.
We give notice that Grŵp Llandrillo Menai is intending to apply for full planning permission for the erection of a Further Education sports hall, creation of coach parking areas within existing car park and associated landscaping.
Prior to formal submission to the Local Planning Authority and in accordance with the requirements set out in Part 1A of the Town & Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2016, the proposal will be subject to pre-application consultation.
The application entails the erection of a Further Education sports hall on land which forms part of GLlM’s existing Coleg Menai Llangefni Campus.
Currently GLlM’s sporting facilities are provided at Coleg Menai’s Bangor Campus and its relocation to the Llangefni Campus forms part of an overarching project by GLlM to provide a fit for purpose GLlM Further Education campus to serve the wider Arfon district in the Bangor area. This would see GLlM’s sporting facilities re-located to Llangefni along with the re-location of a range of A-level STEM subjects.
The new sports facility would be co-located alongside existing engineering, electronics and technology provided within the SteM Centre, which was completed last year. This provides a genuine range of unbeatable facilities for the learners of the area.
The proposed building would provide 2,589sqm of floorspace (GIA) with the following accommodation internally:
Five-court sports hall;
Gym – cardio zone;
Gym – multi gym/weights zone;
Male and female changing rooms, toilets and showers;
Teaching rooms (variety of sizes);
Exercise physiology suite;
Staff workroom and social space.
The building would be two storey with the sports hall area being full height and teaching rooms and associated facilities being provided on part of the first floor above the gym area on the ground floor.
Existing vehicular and pedestrian access arrangements serve the Llangefni Campus and no alterations are considered to be necessary. The application also includes the provision of eight coach parking spaces within the existing car park area.
