1073            ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DEER) -

 

(i)         Enforcement - Update and Progress

 

Committee received a report which advised of the progress of the Enforcement Team between October to the end of December 2010. 

 

169 enforcement cases had been opened, broken down as follows:

 

            Public Complaints                             -                     67

            Proactive Investigations                   -                     39

            Monitoring                                          -                     4

            Internal Complaints                           -                    10

            Anonymous Complaints                   -                      15

            Community Council Complaints      -                         5

            Councillor Complaints                      -                      17

            Other                                                   -                  12

 

The Enforcement Team had also resolved 122 cases between October and December 2010, 65 of which were cases that had resulted from a complaint having been made to the Council.  The Welsh Assembly Government had set as a performance indicator the number of enforcement related complaints resolved by each Council within 12 weeks from receipt of the complaint.  Of the 65 complaint led cases resolved, a total of 55 were resolved within the 12 week target period.  Consequently, 85% of complaints had been resolved within the period set by the Welsh Assembly Government.

 

Having considered the report, it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the contents of the report be noted.

 

Reason for decision

 

To advise Members of the Committee.

 

 

(ii)        Land and Buildings at No. 78 Castle Avenue, Penarth

 

The last meeting of the Planning Committee had authorised the service of an Enforcement Notice to reduce the height of an unauthorised car port at No. 78 Castle Avenue, Penarth. 

 

Having considered this matter further, it was considered that in order to reduce the height of the car port, the owner would be required to completely dismantle the car port structure and re-erect the development at the reduced 3m height.  It was considered that to require the owner to carry out the work to reduce the height would be a more onerous undertaking than the removal of the car port in its entirety, and would effectively remove the breach of planning control.

 

Furthermore, it was understood that at 3m high, the car port would not have the adequate headroom to allow the owner to park his motor home and as a consequence, the development would not be sufficient for its purpose.

 

In view of the above, an amended authorisation was sought to require either the removal of the car port or the reduction in its height.

 

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:

 

            EITHER:

 

            (i)         The permanent removal of the unauthorised car port structure from the site

 

            OR

 

            (ii)        The reduction in height of the car port structure so that it does not exceed 3m in height, when measured from ground floor level.

 

(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.

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  The car port by reason of its scale, poor design and the use of materials in clear view of the public highway and from the neighbouring property results in a prominent and incongruous feature within the street scene, to the detriment of the visual amenities of the surrounding area.  The development was therefore contrary to Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011.

 

 

1074            GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS -

 

(i)         Woodlands Place, Penarth: Proposed Revocation of Traffic Regulation Order 2011

 

Approval was sought to give public notice to revoke the current Traffic Regulation Order which prohibited parking on a section of Woodlands Place, Penarth.

 

In 1978, South Glamorgan County Council implemented a waiting restriction on a short section of Woodlands Place, Penarth on behalf of the Vale of Glamorgan Borough Council. 

 

At that time, the former Drill Hall was being used as a Depot for the Vale of Glamorgan Borough Council’s Technical Engineering Services Department, for the garaging of snow ploughs, road salting and emergency vehicles.

 

The gateway frontage was frequently obstructed by vehicle parking and when emergency calls were received, difficulty was experienced in getting vehicles out of the depot.

 

Consequently, a Traffic Regulation Order was made to implement 15 metres of waiting restriction across the gateway.

 

Since that time, the depot had been moved, the area had been redeveloped with housing and the gateway had been bricked up. 

 

There was no requirement to retain the waiting restriction and consequently, the relevant Traffic Regulation Order may be revoked.  The section of carriageway would return to unrestricted parking.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T, subject to the views of the Chief Constable and other representative organisations of road users, public notice be given of the Council’s intention to revoke the existing Traffic Regulation Order using powers provided by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which would be as described in Appendix A to the report.

 

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

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To ensure that consultations and public notice are given as required by the Local Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 when revoking Traffic Regulation Orders.

 

(2)       To enable the project to commence without further referral to Committee.

 

 

(ii)        Barry Central Area - 2011 Amendment to Parking Control: Consolidation Order

 

Approval was sought to amend the existing Barry Central Area, Parking Control Order 2007. 

 

Currently, the premises at No. 198 Holton Road, located at the junction with George Street, was being refurbished by the Council for use as the Castleland Area Renewal Office. 

 

George Street was subject to a physical closure approximately 30m south of Holton Road.  A “Goods Vehicle Parking Place” was located on its western side while the eastern side comprised a “Two Hour Limited Waiting” bay, with waiting restrictions protecting the junction and closure on both sides at either end. 

 

The new building development had parking provision to the rear, including a Disabled Person’s Parking Place, and access was required from George Street via a dropped kerb.

 

In was appropriate at this time to review the waiting restrictions and facilities in this section of George Street and amend the Orders where necessary.  The location of the Goods Vehicle Loading Bay in the cul-de-sac required a difficult reversing manoeuvre for drivers and currently little demand was made for the facility.  This bay could be converted into a Two Hour Limited Waiting bay with exemption for residents, sufficient to accommodate two cars in line with the bay opposite and those further along George Street.

 

The waiting restriction at the closed end could be extended to prevent obstruction to the Disabled Parking Bay access.

 

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.

 

 

(iii)       Dock View Road and Thompson Street, Barry: Proposed Prohibition of Waiting and Revocation Order 2011

 

Approval was sought to introduce amendments to the waiting restrictions in Thompson Street and in a section of Dock View Road at its junction with Thompson Street, Barry.

 

As part of the Barry Regeneration Area, Public Realm Improvements project, a scheme to upgrade Thompson Street and a section of Dock View Road had been designed.  This would mark the beginning of the next stage of regenerating the Town Centre through a phased programme of physical improvements.

 

As part of the project, the existing Puffin crossing which was located at Dock View Road near its junction with Thompson Street, would be narrowed by carrying out modification works to the footways on either side, thus increasing visibility for both drivers and pedestrians. 

 

To further improve safety on the approach to the crossing from the east, it was proposed to prohibit parking on the southern side of Dock View Road for a short distance.  However, this loss of parking space would be partially offset by the provision of an unrestricted parking lay-by set within the new widened footway on the northern side of Dock View Road. 

 

The carriageway in Thompson Street would be extensively altered to provide unrestricted parking bays for much of its length between its junction with Greenwood Street and Merthyr Street and its junction with Dock View Road.

 

It was considered important that parked vehicles did not obstruct the approach to the crossing, nor the visibility of drivers.  Consequently, it was considered appropriate to prohibit parking on Dock View Road for a short distance on the eastern approach to the crossing.  The details of the proposals were as shown on the Plan attached to the report.

 

The existing waiting restriction which prohibited parking in that section of Thompson Street, now subject to the new parking bays, would be revoked to allow unrestricted parking.  The details of these proposals were shown on the 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 new Traffic Regulation Order, and to revoke an existing Traffic Regulation Order the effects of which would be as shown on Appendix A to the report.

 

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

 

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.

1076            MATTER WHICH THE CHAIRMAN HAD DECIDED WAS URGENT -

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the following matter which the Chairman had decided was urgent for the reason given beneath the minute heading be considered.

 

 

1077            ENFORCEMENT ACTION: LAND AND BUILDINGS AT ALLT ISAF FARM, PETERSTON SUPER ELY (DEER) -

Urgent by reason of the need to make a decision prior to the next meeting of the Committee

 

On 3rd March 2011, a complaint had been received by the Local Planning Authority regarding the possible erection of a new building at Allt Isaf Farm, Peterston Super Ely without the benefit of planning permission.

 

An initial site inspection was carried out, it being noted that a number of building materials and equipment were being stored at the site as well as mounds of earth which suggested that works were about to be undertaken at the site.  There were no current planning permissions for further development at the site and an application for planning permission had not been submitted for any works at the site. 

 

In view of this, the owner was contacted regarding the works at the site, asking him to contact the Local Planning Authority within 7 days to discuss these works and any planning implications that may exist.  On 22nd March 2011, the owner contacted the Council and stated that he had laid a concrete hard standing ready to erect a log cabin structure on the site which was to be used as a farm shop selling products associated with the use of the land for the keeping of alpacas.  He was advised that this development required the benefit of formal planning permission and, as no planning application had been submitted, the development and works were unauthorised.  The owner confirmed that he was in the process of preparing a planning application for the erection of the log cabin and this would be done by the end of the following week (i.e. week ending 1st April 2011).  The owner was advised to stop all works on site until the application had been submitted and determined.  He was also advised that failure to submit the application within this time period would result in further enforcement action being taken against him if the building were erected. 

 

Committee were subsequently advised that the structure being built was to be a dwelling house.

 

On 25th March 2011, the Council received a call from a local resident stating that a timber structure had been delivered to the site.  To date, no structures had been erected at the site although the site was being used for the storage of building materials and ground works were taking place in preparation for the erection of the proposed timber structure at the site.

 

At present, the unauthorised development at the site consisted of the laying of a hard surface and the use of the site for the storage of builder’s materials. 

 

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 and a Stop Notice under Section 183 of the Town and Country and Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to require:

 

            (i)         Cease all ongoing works to erect the building;

 

            (ii)        Remove from the land the concrete brick supporting pillars, the timber framed base structure and the foundations of the supporting pillars;

 

            (iii)       Remove from the land  all building materials and equipment, including the sand, cement, timber, cement mixer, drainage pipes and all mounds of imported material and aggregate stored in the general location ;

 

            (iv)       Make good the exposed ground resulting from compliance with (ii) and (iii) above and return the exposed ground to grass.

 

(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.

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority, the proposed timber building and existing hard stand are considered to be an unacceptable and unjustified form of development in the open countryside that would have a detrimental effect on the appearance and character of this rural location and Special Landscape Area, which was contrary to the Policies ENV1, ENV4, ENV10, ENV11, ENV27, EMP7 and EMP8 of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales (February 2011) and Technical Advice Note 6 (July 2010) on Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.
