934     APPEALS (DEER) -

 

(i)         Planning Appeals

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the list of Appeals received and decisions concerning Appeals arising from the refusal of the Council to grant planning permission as detailed in the report be noted.

 

(ii)        Statistics

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the statistics relating to Appeals for April 2011 - March 2012 as detailed in the report be noted.

 

(iii)       Forthcoming Public Inquiries

 

(a)       Planning Application No. 2010/00123/RES - Land at and Adjoining White Farm, Merthyr Dyfan Barry -

 

The Head of Planning and Transportation in referring to the forthcoming Public Local Inquiry is respect of the above matter and sought the assistance of Members of the Council in providing appropriate evidence in support of the Council’s Statement of Case which was required to be prepared by 25th March, 2012.  He reminded the Committee that Members involvement in the appeal is as third party only would not be sufficient with Members attendance at the Inquiry essential.

 

Councillor Hodges indicated that he was prepared to assist Officers in this matter.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the assistance of Members necessary to support the Council's case in the forthcoming Appeal in respect of the above subject matter be noted.

 

Reason for decision

 

Members' assistance in this Appeal must form part of the Council's case and was integral to the Council's evidence.

 

 

(b)       Planning Application No. 2011/00812/FUL - Unit 1, Llandow Industrial Estate, Llandow -

 

The Head of Planning and Transportation in referring to the above application previously refused by the Committee during the latter part of 2011 following based on representations received from Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water and indicated that Council Officers had recently been in contact with Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water as their evidence and attendance at the Public Inquiry would be essential to the Council's case in this matter.  However, on the day that the Council's Statement of Case for this Appeal was due a letter had been received from Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water in which they had effectively withdrawn their concerns, details of which were set out in Appendix A to the report.  In view of the position now taken by Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water, Council Officers were now unable to provide additional technical information to support the Council's case at the above Appeal.  Whilst it was unfortunate that Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water had changed their position on this matter so late in the timetable for providing evidence to the Planning Inspectorate, he indicated that Officers would maintain a robust stance and seek to limit the impact of the proposals by way of conditions.  Accordingly, it was recommended that the Council offer no further evidence at the Appeal.

 

Discussion ensued with Members of the Committee expressing concern at the stance taken so late in the day by Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water and the implications for the Council's case at the impending Public Inquiry.  Councillor Wilson in referring to the subject reiterated the importance of clarifying the issue jurisdiction with the Welsh Government and National Government with the purpose of establishing agreement for policy matters relating to the proposals.  In response the Chairman referred to the fact that the Leader of the Council had previously written to the Welsh Government raising serious concerns over related issues.  In echoing the comments of the Chairman, Councillor Church indicated that a response had been received from the relevant Government Minister which in essence was unhelpful to the Council's cause.  Councillors Hampton and Hodges referred to those planning appeals allowed which were reported earlier in the agenda and in particular to the Sainsbury's application and could not comprehend how the Planning Inspector could allow the Appeal given the level of local community concerns raised and supported by MPs, AMs and local Elected Ward Members.  Councillor Hampton endorsed the comments made by Councillor Wilson in regard for clarity to be provided on policy matters regarding 'fracking'.  Councillor Hodges expressed concern as to how conditions attached to any planning permission potentially granted in the future for test drilling could provide absolute certainty in monitoring the loss of drilling fluid into the natural environment thus contaminating groundwater reserves.

 

The Committee having regard to the above and related issues

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the letter from Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water be noted and agreed that no further evidence be offered in support of the Council's case in this Appeal.

 

Reason for decision

 

In acknowledgement of the stance now taken by Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water in regard to this matter.

(ii)        Proposed Confirmation of Tree Preservation Order (TPO) No. 7 2011: No. 11 Whitcliffe Drive, Penarth -

 

The above matter had been considered by the Committee at its last meeting held on 2nd February, 2012 and at that time the matter had been deferred to allow the Committee to make a site visit.  The TPO concerned a site which was a residential curtilage of a large two storey detached dwelling of modern construction.  The TPO itself concerned a short row of five semi-mature pines within the rear garden of the above property which were a distance of approximately 19 metres from the rear elevation of the property and approximately 8.5 - 9 metres tall.  It was noted that there was no planning history regarding these trees.  Following the issuing by officers of a provisional Order a number of representations were received from neighbouring properties, from a representative of the previous owners of the property and from the current owners of Whitcliffe Drive including supporting information which included a tree survey suggesting that the trees be removed and a submission by the agent acting on behalf of the owners objecting to the Order.  The Committee also considered other related matters including the trees existing and future contribution to the visual amenity of the surrounding area including technical information used to assess the value of retaining the trees.  Brief reference was also made to the site visit of Members to the location held prior to the Committee with subsequent concerns being expressed which opposed the confirmation of the TPO due to the scale, condition and visual contribution of the trees to the surrounding area. 

 

Having regard to the above and related issues including late representations it was

1.         The proposed conversion would require significant alteration and extension to a rural building that would substantially alter its appearance resulting in the loss of its rural character and would therefore detract from the character and setting of this part of the Special Landscape Area. The proposed conversion is therefore considered to be contrary to Policies ENV8 - Small Scale Rural Conversions; and ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas of the Adopted Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.
