Controversial plans to build a motorhome park in a Carmarthenshire village have been rejected at appeal.

A community group in Idole had challenged a planning application for an American-style recreational vehicle site on agricultural land next to the A484.

After planning consent was refused by Carmarthenshire council, applicant Glyn Rees submitted an appeal to the Welsh Assembly Planning Inspectorate.

That appeal has now been dismissed.

People living in the area had expressed concerns over road safety and noise.
