602     WELSH GOVERNMENT CONSULTATION DOCUMENT - IMPROVING THE PLANNING APPEAL PROCESS (REF) -

 

Cabinet, on 2nd November, 2011 considered the aforementioned consultation document which put forward proposals for various changes designed to make the appeals process more proportionate, cost effective and responsive to applicants and appellants needs.  In the most part it was noted that the consultation endorsed the approach that the Council had undertaken for the last 12 months when it had been selected to take part in a pilot scheme for introducing a quicker, simpler system for householder appeals.  Other key changes proposed included the appeal method for each case being decided by the Inspectorate, extending the costs regime to written representation planning appeals, introducing a simple procedure for correcting errors in appeal decisions and introducing a formal process and guidance for undertaking bespoke timetables for complex Inquiries.  Such changes were to be welcomed in streamlining the process.  Changes in the current arrangements for payment of enforcement application fees to ensure that the whole fee for an enforcement appeal under Ground A would now be retained by the Council - this was also considered to be a positive step. 

 

Certain points in the consultation, however, raised some concerns.  It was considered that some of the timescales imposed on the Council for the submission of documentation to the Inspectorate were unrealistic (5 days) and that a timescale of 10 working days would be more appropriate.  The second concern was in respect of the submission of Statements of Common Ground.  The consultation document suggested that the submission of an agreed Statement of Common Ground and its submission to the Planning Inspectorate should be submitted prior to the expiry of the 4 week deadline for the submission of written proofs of evidence.  Members considered that the submission of the Statement earlier in the appeals process could lead to less Statements of Common Ground being agreed with the documents themselves having little value due to the time pressures involved.  Further to the above, general concern was expressed at the Welsh Government's conclusion as to why Statements of Common Ground were not submitted, the point being made that it was not until Councils and appellants had gone through the process of the preparation of evidence that any Common Ground became apparent. 

 

Cabinet had:

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the response to the Consultation Document as appended to the report be approved and forwarded to the Welsh Government.

            To ensure satisfactory maintenance of the landscaped area to ensure compliance with Policies ENV1, ENV11 and ENV27 of the Unitary Development Plan.

            Reason:

           

            To protect the integrity of the public sewer and avoid damage thereto and to comply with the terms of Policy ENV27 of the Unitary Development Plan.

 

12.      The implemented drainage scheme for the site should ensure that all foul and surface water discharges separately from the site and that land drainage run-off shall not discharge, either directly or indirectly, into the public sewerage system, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

           

            Reason:

           

            To prevent hydraulic overloading of the public sewerage system, pollution of the environment and to protect the health and safety of existing residents and ensure no detriment to the environment and to comply with the terms of Policy ENV27 of the Unitary Development Plan.
