Mohammad Asghar, Assembly Member for South East Wales, has written to Caerphilly Council to object to plans to convert outbuildings into seven residential units.
Mr Asghar said:
“I have written to Caerphilly Council to object to this planning application.
“Ruperra Castle Estate is a Grade 2 listed building and a valued part of our Welsh heritage. I do not believe this development would be in keeping with its status.
I have concerns about traffic in the area and there is also the question of the effect on the bat population which is a protected species.
I hope Caerphilly Council will take this into account and reject this scheme.”
