Description

The parcel is situated within the northern edge of the Aberfan Village boundary, adjacent to the B4285, Aberfan Road.

Aberfan is located just 4 miles south of Merthyr Tydfil, which provides comprehensive facilities including a wide selection of shops, restaurants and leisure opportunities. The Cyfartha Retail Park is 5 miles to the north and provides many High Street names and a health club.

Communications are close at hand with the A470 within just 5 miles and the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road 7 miles north, providing fast access east and west. Railway stations at Merthyr Vale, less than 1 mile to the south east and Troedyrhiw to the north provides access to the Capital City and surrounding areas.

The Taff Trail (locally known as the Canal Bank) runs through Aberfan from Troedyrhiw to Treharris and provides a popular walking and cycle route. Extensive playing fields can be found directly opposite the site and adjacent to the River Taff, adding significant amenity value.

Aberfan has also seen the construction of a brand new primary school which opened at Easter 2010.

The site extends to approximately 3.11 acres (1.26 hectares). The site has been designated within the Merthyr Tydfil borough’s local plans as an area for residential consent.

An outline planning consent for residential development was granted on 24th September 2009, however, this has now lapsed.

This application can be found on Merthyr Tydfil County Borough website - Reference Number: P/07/0290

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing rating valuation advice to The Welsh Rugby Union Limited (“WRU”) and Millennium Stadium plc for many years. They were recently successful in achieving substantial reductions in the assessments of the Millennium Stadium, covering both the 2005 and 2010 rating list. These negotiated reductions yielded savings of c.£3.5m which, crucially, allows the WRU to re-invest in rugby throughout Wales. They advise the WRU across the group portfolio including the National Centre of Excellence in the Vale of Glamorgan. The valuation issues across the WRU portfolio are complex requiring a high level of understanding of the funding and finances of professional sport in Wales. Cooke & Arkwright’s experience and understanding of these issues and application to the rating valuation have yielded these substantial negotiated reductions. The WRU and the Millennium Stadium entrust our work to organisations with the required levels in experience and expertise in dealing with these complex issues. I am glad to say we have this expertise in Wales. I would have no hesitation in recommending ratepayers making use of this Welsh based expertise.
