Will there be any benefits?
This development is unlikely to create work for our community. The developers will bring in their own contractors and are unlikely to use any local people.
Although there is local employment at the industrial complex north of Barry, there is no expansion planned and no major recruitment drive.
There are unlikely to be any other significant employment opportunities locally. Potential purchaser of units on this site are likely to commute to Cardiff, or further to Bridgend, Swansea or Bristol exacerbating the already critical traffic congestion.
It could be said that the level of congestion could be a disincentive to any prospective purchasers given that there many other developments closer to arterial road systems in South Wales.
