Unofficial - A Personal View
I think Penyffordd & Penymynydd is stretched for amenities as is - but this future development is a positive thing - as it will push the need over the edge to therefore bring better services. In such a green and pleasant village - wont 190 new houses be a good thing? In general the purchase pool is MBNA and British Aerospace, both of which represents higher earning, respectable members of the community. walking round older areas of Penymnynydd around penymynydd road some of the houses are tired, badly looked after and the low cost of these houses has the potential to attract society members with lower standards. Personally I feel the development won't inherently change the feel of anything, is situated on a parcel of land that at the moment no one can see anyway, so therefore isn't spoiling any vistas etc, and would bring much needed wealth into the area.
