Bike Park Wales Planning Application

We are pleased to announce that BikePark Wales will soon be submitting a full planning application for new development at the BikePark Wales site, which is located in the Gethin Woods in Merthyr Tydfil.

The new development will consist of new parking areas, overnight accommodation, a shower and toilet block, natural park and picnic area, maintenance yard and associated infrastructure and landscape works.

The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2016 requires draft planning applications to be available for comments for a minimum period of 28 days prior to formal submission to the Council.

The usual planning consultation procedures will still be followed by the Council whilst determining the application. 

All of the draft planning application documents are therefore available to download from this page of our website. Should you wish to make any comments on the proposed application please address them to:
The Urbanists, The Creative Quarter, 8a Morgan Arcade, Cardiff, CF10 1AF by 6th February 2019
