654     DELEGATED POWERS: AMEND 1.32 OF THE SCHEME OF DELEGATION RELATING TO PLANNING ENFORCEMENT POWERS (REF) -

 

Cabinet on 13th October, 2010 received a request to amend the Council's existing scheme of delegation in order to allow service of urgent Enforcement Notices and to allow the withdrawal of Enforcement Notices when some defect or failure was found.

 

It was sometimes necessary to serve Enforcement and Stop Notices in urgent cases where immediate harm was being caused to local residents or the surrounding area.  Currently, paragraph 1.32 of the scheme of delegation allowed for the urgent service of Stop Notices but did not allow the service of Enforcement Notices.  This ability was technically flawed in that a Stop Notice could not in any event be served without first having served an Enforcement Notice and thus it was considered necessary to ensure the delegation was clear on this point.  By amending the scheme of delegation to include the service of Enforcement Notices, this would also allow the flexibility to service such Notices without recourse to Stop Notices, as a first step in attempting to resolve Breaches of Planning Control.

 

Furthermore, during the course of dealing with an Enforcement case, following the service of an Enforcement Notice and sometimes when an appeal against that Notice was ongoing, it could become necessary for either the terms of that Notice to be varied, usually in terms of the time necessary to comply with its terms or in respect of the nature of the breach, or for the Notice itself to be withdrawn.  Such cases could occur when a typographical error was identified or some other error became apparent such as an incorrect breach being identified or an inadvertent case of under enforcement due to deficiencies in drafting.

 

The changes proposed were considered essential and necessary to allow the efficient operation of the Enforcement function of the Council and would be operated in direct consultation with the Head of Legal Services and / or any other legal representative acting on behalf of the Council.  The changes proposed would not lead to any changes in operating procedures in relation to the service of Enforcement Notices save for allowing urgent Notices to be served without reference to Planning Committee and similarly allowing officers the ability to vary the Terms of Notices or withdrawal of Notices when deemed absolutely necessary.

 

This was a matter for Council decision.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T subject to consultation with the Planning Committee, the current scheme of delegation as identified by Minute. No. 176 (1) 98/99 be amended at paragraph 1.32 as follows:

 

To authorise the issue of Enforcement and Stop Notices, where reference to the Planning Committee would occasion detrimental delay and to allow the variation or withdrawal of a previously issued Enforcement Notice when a defect, error or other minor variation is deemed legally necessary. 

 

Planning Committee, having considered the decision of Cabinet,

 

RESOLVED - T H A T Council be requested to endorse the Resolution of Cabinet. 

 

Reason for decision

 

To allow for the urgent and immediate service of Enforcement Notices, given the quasi-judicial nature of the action, and to allow the variation and if necessary, withdrawal.

 

 

655     PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY SUB-COMMITTEE (DLPPHS) -

 

A vacancy had occurred on the Public Rights of Way Sub-Committee in the light of Councillor K. Hatton no longer being a Member of the Planning Committee, and it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T Councillor Mrs. V.M. Hartrey be appointed to the Public Rights of Way Sub-Committee.

 

Reason for decision

(ii)        Application Ref: 2010/00827/TCA: Stanwell Road Baptist Church, Stanwell Road, Penarth: To Remove 2 No. Yew Trees in the Interest of Health and Safety -

 

Consent was sought to remove two mature Irish Yews on grounds of health and safety from the main Stanwell Road frontage of Stanwell Road Baptist Church, Penarth which was directly opposite the Penarth Town Council Offices at West House, and located within Penarth Conservation Area.

 

The application to remove the Yews had been submitted primarily because of concerns with the poisonous berries shed by the trees.  This submission followed a previous enquiry in February 2009, when the Church's representative had been advised that consent to fell was unlikely to be granted purely on the basis of the debris emanating from the trees especially as an application in 1999 had been refused, and a Tree Preservation Order served in response.  Unfortunately, this Order had never been confirmed.

 

The Church premises were heavily used daily by an 'after-school' club with children having access to the garden area.  Brownies, Guides, Beavers and Scouts likewise had weekly access to the premises and garden area. 

 

Aside from the debris from the trees, another issue had been raised in support of planning which related to the boundary wall which was ornamental in its design and of traditional Lias limestone.  Additional comments had been made on the application form regarding the undermining of this front wall by roots which, it was concluded, were from the Yews.  Cadw now gave annual funding for the maintenance of the walls because they viewed it, and the frontage, to be important architecturally.  However, the structures were not Listed by Cadw and were not referred to, either in a general sense or individually, in the latest Conservation Area Appraisal for Penarth.

 

Given the above and prominence and importance of the trees it was considered appropriate action to re-issue the Tree Preservation Order.

 

A further response had been received from the spokesman for the Church, who submitted the application and which referred to two cases exhibiting similar concerns, namely one relating to Ashford Borough Council, and the other relating to Chelmsford Borough Council.

 

The report detailed a list of the issues behind the notification of felling of the Yews, and also contained advice which could be offered should the Order be confirmed:

 

·      The berries fall onto the public highway and onto the church gardens.

 

Response - That the applicant be advised that the berries can be swept away from the paths/pavements and by use of an external water supply, the areas could be hosed as well.

 

·      Stanwell Road was a main road leading to the town centre and was heavily trafficked by members of the public.

 

Response - As above.

 

·      The Church premises are heavily used, daily, by an 'after-school' club with children having access to the garden area.  Brownies, Guides, Beavers and Scouts had weekly access to the premises and garden area. 

 

Response - The applicant be advised to inform those supervising each group of children, to educate their charges assiduously about the dangers in ingesting the Yew berries.  The Church may wish to consider fencing off the areas in which the Yews are growing also.

 

Having considered the issues raised therefore, it was recommended that the Tree Preservation Order No. 12, 2010 for two Yew trees in front of Stanwell Road Baptist Church, be confirmed without modification, on the basis that the Yews make a significant contribution to the local visual amenity on Stanwell Road, a road comprising large Victorian properties many of which had mature trees within their grounds, and as being a species typical to and most readily associated with church buildings and land.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the Tree Preservation Order be confirmed without modification.

 

 

661     ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DEER) -

 

(i)         Enforcement - Update and Progress -

Having become aware of an alleged breach of planning control at No. 212 Holton Road, Barry, Officers had noted that the external appearance of the shop front had changed with a new access point and door added to the front elevation of the building.  It had been confirmed that the property had been amended to form three upper floor residential units.  From April 2009 through to July 2009, Officers had been unable to gain access to the property or receive a response from the identified owner. 

 

On 24th July, 2009, a Planning Contravention Notice had been served alleging the change of use of the property from a maisonette and ground floor shop to three self contained residential units and a ground floor shop.  Further difficulty arose in receiving a response to the Notice, which was required to be completed within 21 days of its service.  On 29th October, 2009 a completed Planning Contravention Notice had been received by the Council which confirmed that following December 2006, the property had been split into three flats above an unoccupied ground floor retail unit.  It was established that the shop front amendment had been added as a temporary measure in October 2008.

 

The site was inspected with the owners present on 9th February, 2010 and it was clarified that a new access had been installed to the front of the property leading to an existing staircase to rear which served as an access for three independent residential units.  The first unit to the rear of the first floor consisted of single living room/bedroom area, shower room and kitchen.  The second unit to the front of the first floor was set out with a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.  The final unit on the second floor of the property consisted of a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.  Each of the units could be accessed independently from the staircase and access provided to the rear and front of the property.

 

The development consisted of the change of use of a single residential unit into three residential units above a ground floor vacant dentist and the modification to the shop front.  The development required planning permission as there were no permitted rights allowing the conversion of one single unit of residential accommodation into separate independent units regardless of the size of the property.  Furthermore, the works to the shop front were considered to be a material change of the shop front such that planning permission was required.

 

The owners had been advised that planning permission was required, and had been requested to submit an application. 

 

Despite a number of reminders, a final letter had been sent to the owners on 16th August, 2010 giving the owners the opportunity to address the matter and submit an application within 14 days.  No planning application or other correspondence had been received to date.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the Director of Legal, Public Protection and Housing Services be authorised to serve two Enforcement Notices under Section 172 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to require:

 

Notice 1 - Material change of use

 

(i)         Cease the use of the first and second floors as three self contained units of residential accommodation.

 

(ii)        Return the first and second floors to a single unit of residential accommodation.

 

Notice 2 - Operational Development

 

(i)         Remove the new PVCu access door and surrounding wooden panels located to the left hand side of the shop front and install a single glazed window panel and surrounding PVCu to match the existing shop front.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of non-compliance with the Notice, authorisation be granted to take such legal proceedings as may be required. 

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       The development fails to provide adequate provision and access to amenity space to serve the proposed occupiers of the three flats to the detriment of their residential amenities.  The development is therefore contrary to Policies HOUS8 - Residential Development Criteria, ENV27 - Design of New Developments and the Council's adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards.

 

(2)       The shop front as constructed is considered to be of a poor design and appearance which fails to complement or enhance the local character of buildings and open spaces contrary to Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments.

 

 

(iii)       Land and Buildings at No. 26 Carn-Yr-Ebol, Pencoedtre, Barry -

 

The Local Planning Authority had received a complaint that an extension had been erected to the rear of No. 26 Carn-Yr-Ebol, Pencoedtre, Barry.  The site related to a detached dwelling located within a residential development of modern homes, which vary in type, form and scale, but share a general similarity due to the materials that had been used in their construction. 

 

The property was accessed by a shared driveway and was served by a double garage to the front of the property.  The double garage had been linked via a single storey extension to the main dwelling house.  To the rear of the site was a modest sized garden which backed onto a car parking area for properties upon Carn-Yr-Ebol.  To the north, bordering the applicants property were six terraced houses.  To the south of the applicant's property were a number of detached properties. 

 

An initial site inspection revealed that a large single storey rear extension had been erected at the property.  The extension was a timber frame, which had an asymmetrical pitched roof and measured a maximum of 10.9m in length, 4.5m in width and 3.5m in height to the ridge.  The extension was clad in timber and provided a canopied veranda area with decking, a garden room and a storage shed.

 

As a previous single storey extension had been erected to create a link between the house and the large double garage to the front of the property, the dwelling had already exceeded the 70 cubic metres of extensions permitted by Schedule 2, Part 1, Class A of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995.  Given the above, any further extension to the property now required prior consent from the Local Planning Authority.  As such the extension erected to the rear of the property was considered to be development which required the benefit of planning permission.  As no such permission had been granted, the extension was unauthorised, and in breach of planning control.

 

The owners had been informed that the works would require planning permission and were a breach of planning control.  Whilst the owner submitted a planning application, reference 2010/00725/FUL to regularise the extensions the application had been refused.  Since the refusal, the owner had been sent correspondence to outline the Council's position, but nothing had been done to remedy the breach. 

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the Director of Legal, Public Protection and Housing Services be authorised to serve an Enforcement Notice under Section 172 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to require:

 

(i)         Remove from the land the single storey rear extension and clear the land of all resultant waste material.

 

(ii)        Make good all exposed elevations by re-instating the original rear elevation and window openings.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of non-compliance with the Notice, authorisation be granted to take such legal proceedings as may be required.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       The extension by virtue of its scale and close proximity to the boundary with the neighbouring property of No. 28 Carn-Yr-Ebol, is considered to cause an overbearing impact upon the neighbouring property and constitutes an un-neighbourly form of development.  The extension is, therefore, contrary to Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011 as well as the guidance set out in the Council's Adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards.

 

(2)       The extension by virtue of its overall size, scale and prominence is not sympathetic to scale and form of the existing dwelling house.  It is an incongruous addition to the property which has a detrimental impact on the surrounding street scene.  The extension is, therefore, contrary to Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Council Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011 as well as the guidance set out in the Council's Adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards.

 

 

662     GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS (DEER) -

 

(i)         Quarry Monitoring Programme: Annual Report on Quarrying Activity 2009 - 2010 -

 

Committee were advised of outputs and general developments in the minerals industry locally during the past 12 months. 

 

The report continued the regular practice since 1996, and of the former County Council prior to that, of a regular formal review of quarrying matters.  The current report followed the same format as previously, identifying the matters dealt with during the year and any problems that had arisen at each site, with a concluding section on output trends, reserves and wider mineral issues.  Actual production figures at all sites were commercially confidential but general comments on trends were given.

 

Having considered the report, it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T copies of the Annual Quarry Monitoring Report be sent to Cardiff County Council, Bridgend County Borough Council and Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council for their information.

 

Reason for decision

 

To inform adjoining Mineral Planning Authorities of trends in mineral activity in the Vale during the past year.

 

 

(ii)        Regent Street and Gladstone Road, Barry: Prohibition of Waiting At Any Time Traffic Regulation Order: Objections Received -

 

Attention was drawn to matters relating to a number of objections received to the proposed Traffic Regulation Order, that was needed to regulate on-street parking provision in Regent Street at its junction with Gladstone Road, Barry and were advised of the Officers responses thereto.

 

Nine generically produced letters of objections, shown at Appendix B to the report, had been received from residents of Gladstone Road living in the vicinity of the junction, who had made the following comments:

 

·      on-street parking for residents would be reduced

·      the restrictions would cause parking chaos at peak times during the school day

·      the local shop may lose passing trade

·      vehicles would have difficulties delivering goods to the shop, as they would no longer be able to park in front or to the side of the shop - therefore may result in delivery vehicles blocking the road - causing greater visibility problems

·      the reduction in parked vehicles in Regent Street would result in higher vehicle speeds - making the junction with Gladstone Road more dangerous for children on their way to/from school.

 

In addition, a separate letter had commented:

 

·      This would make loading/unloading vehicles even harder and typically required me to park further away from my house.  I do not believe that there is any problem or danger inherent in the existing layout.

 

A further letter had been received in which the objector had commented:

 

·      The parking restrictions would mean that delivery vehicles would be forced to double park blocking the road in order for them to deliver supplies to both the front and side entrances of the business.  Undoubtedly some customers frequenting the shop would also double park creating a road safety hazard.

·      The introduction of a 'No Waiting' Order on both sides of Regent Street would mean that 10 metres each side of the street would be clear of any parked vehicles.  This would encourage higher speed of vehicles for traffic travelling up Regent Street towards Gladstone Road.  This could cause more accidents as people approached the junction with Gladstone Road and increase the dangers for the number of children crossing the road on their school journeys.

 

In response, it was stated that the proposed Traffic Regulation Order was designed to reduce parking at this junction.  This would remove the obstruction to vehicles intending to exit Regent Street into Gladstone Road and would also reduce the danger to drivers wishing to enter Regent Street who may be confronted by on-coming vehicles, causing reversing manoeuvres into Gladstone Road which is bad practice and dangerous. 

 

Advice given in the Highway Code informs drivers not to park within 10 metres of a junction and this proposal would reduce the parking availability in Gladstone Road by just one vehicle, fronting the shop and four in Regent Street. 

 

There was no reason to believe that the restriction would cause parking chaos at school travelling times, as the number of vehicles affected by the restriction was low and vehicles should not be parked close to the junction in any event. 

 

The local shop keeper had not registered an objection to the scheme and an exemption to the Traffic Regulation Order would allow drivers and customers to load and unload goods on the proposed double yellow lines, fronting and alongside his shop.  Currently, delivery drivers including the Royal Mail van do not have this facility and rather than blocking the road by double parking, they would now be able to pull in safely at the kerb. 

 

There was no evidence to suggest that the speed of vehicles would increase significantly by the removal of parked vehicles at the junction and the improved visibility would certainly make it safer for children crossing at this point. 

 

Having considered the report, it was

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the objections received be rejected and the proposals remain as advertised. 

 

(2)       T H A T the objectors be advised accordingly.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To enable the Order to be made.

 

(2)       To advise the objectors of the Planning Committee's decision.

 

 

(iii)       Gileston Road (Part), St. Athan: Prohibition of Waiting at Any Time Order -

 

Approval was sought for the introduction of a Traffic Regulation Order prohibiting the waiting of vehicles at any time over part of Gileston Road, St. Athan. 

 

Attention had been drawn to a number of highway safety issues in the vicinity of the school crossing patrol location on Gileston Road, near to its junction with Rock Road, St. Athan.  Dropped kerbs, tactile paving, red anti-skid surface treatment and patrol warning lights were previously provided to highlight the location of the crossing point.

 

Observations had found that the visibility of pedestrians waiting to cross on the western side of Gileston Road was compromised by the proximity and volume of on-street parking.  Furthermore, the residual carriageway width inhibited the safe passage of opposing vehicles.  The school crossing patrol officer had witnessed on numerous occasions, buses traversing the pedestrian dropped kerbs on the eastern side of Gileston Road.

 

The demand for on-street parking was exacerbated by the nearby GP surgery, post office and shops.  However, limited opportunities for on-street parking would still be available in the vicinity of the proposed restrictions.  The provision of a No Waiting At Any Time Order, as shown on the Plan attached as an Appendix to the report, would improve safety for vulnerable road users as well as motorists. 

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T subject to the views of the Chief Constable and other statutory consultees, public notice be given of the Vale of Glamorgan Council's intention to make a Traffic Regulation Order, the effect of which is detailed in Appendix A to the report.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received the Order be made.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To comply with the requirements of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

 

(2)       To allow the necessary works to be undertaken.

 

 

(iv)       Colcot Road at its Junction with Winston Road: Barry: Proposed Prohibition of Waiting Order -

 

Approval was sought for the introduction of a Prohibition of Waiting Traffic Regulation Order on a section of Colcot Road at its junction with Winston Road, Barry.

 

As part of the Safe Routes in Communities Scheme within North Barry, a cycle lane was proposed for Colcot Road which was designed to cross the road by means of a Toucan Crossing to the south of its junction with Winston Road.  The cycle lane would link into the crossing at this point.

 

Observations indicated that very few vehicles are parked at this location, but it was considered important that parked vehicles should not obstruct the passage of cyclists along the cycle lane on the approach to the crossing, nor the visibility of drivers.  Winston Road formed part of a bus route with turning movements into and out of Colcot Road.  Consequently, it was felt appropriate to prohibit parking on Colcot Road for a short distance on either side of Winston Road as indicated in the Schedule and Plan attached to the report.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T subject to the views of the Chief Constable and other statutory consultees, public notice be given of the Vale of Glamorgan Council's intention to make a Traffic Regulation Order, the effect of which would be as shown at Appendix A to the report.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received, the Order be made.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To comply with the requirements of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

 

(2)       To allow the necessary works to be undertaken.

 

 

(v)        Rock Road (Part), St. Athan: Proposed Traffic Calming -

 

Approval was sought for the introduction of traffic calming measures on a section of Rock Road, St. Athan. 

 

Attention had been drawn to a pedestrian safety issue along the footway between Rectory Drive and the road leading to St. Athan County Junior and Infant School.

 

The corner of an outbuilding belonging to Rock Farm protruded into the highway creating a localised footway reduction.  The footway width was insufficient to allow a pedestrian with a pushchair or wheelchair from continuing along the footway. 

 

Rock Road was an ostensibly semi rural single carriageway, with dense vegetation that further reduced the available road width.  The One-Way Order operated throughout it entire length, which on times may engender inappropriate driving due to motorists being aware that no oncoming vehicles would be present. 

 

It was likely that the situation resulted in parents and/or carers perceiving the road safety dangers to be such that they would take their children to school by alternative means rather than walking to cycling.  This exacerbated the inherent safety issues with car use, to the further detriment of road safety and modal shift.  The provision of a round top road hump would reduce the approach vehicle speeds, whilst the flat top plateau would raise the level of the carriageway to provide a safer means to negotiate the localised footway narrowing. 

 

The traffic calming measures were being proposed on the section of highway south of Rectory Drive as indicated on the Schedule and Plan attached to the report.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T public notice be given of the Vale of Glamorgan Council's intention to introduce traffic calming measures, the effect of which would be as detailed in Appendix A to the report.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received, the traffic calming measures be introduced.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To comply with the requirements of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the Highways (Road Hump) Regulations 1999 and the Highways Act 1980.

 

(2)       To allow the necessary works to be undertaken.
