Demolition of former hotel and construction of nine apartments, including car parking and landscaping

 

REFUSED     (hearing or Public Inquiry)

 

1.         This proposal for the redevelopment of the site would result in the permanent removal of the existing hotel and associated restaurant, public bar and function room facilities and would therefore represent the unacceptable loss of an important community and tourism facility within the rural village of Ogmore-by-Sea.  The proposal would therefore be detrimental to the community life and fabric of Ogmore-by-Sea and, accordingly, would be contrary to the provisions of Policy COMM5 of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and also to advice contained within Planning Policy Wales (June 2010).

 

2.         Notwithstanding the above reason for refusal, the layout, size and scale (as identified by submitted parameters) of the proposed development would significantly and materially increase the impact of built development in this sensitive rural location. As such, the proposal would fail to conserve or enhance the special environmental qualities of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast within which the development site is located, as well as the rural character of development within the village of Ogmore-by-Sea.  Accordingly, the proposal would be contrary to Policies ENV5, ENV27 and HOUS8 of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and also to general advice and design principles contained within Planning Policy Wales and Technical Advice Note 12: Design.
