1070   ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DEER) -

 

(i)         Land and Buildings at No. 29 Colcot Road, Barry -

 

A report to the Planning Committee on 15th December, 2011 had advised of the unauthorised development at No. 29 Colcot Road, Barry. 

 

The report had advised Members that planning permission had been granted for the erection of a two storey side extension with a dormer, a two storey rear extension and two dormer extensions on the rear roof slope.  However, the development erected on site had not been carried out in compliance with the approved scheme of development.  A subsequent application that had been submitted to retain the development as built was refused. 

 

Committee had authorised the following action to be pursued:

 

EITHER:

 

(i)         The removal of the extension and the exposed elevations of the dwelling made good.

 

OR

 

(ii)        The amendment of the extension so that it complies with the scheme of development approved by virtue of the 2010/00313/FUL permissions.

 

Committee noted that authorisation had been granted for the 'removal of the extension' to the property, thus suggesting that all extensions to the property were considered unacceptable.  It was noted, however, that the Officer's main concerns were with regard to the impact of the two storey rear extension only. 

 

Having considered the matter further and having regard to a previous approval at the site, it was considered necessary to amend the previous decision. 

 

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)         the removal of the two storey rear extension and the exposed elevations of the dwelling made good

 

(ii)        the replacement of all window units in the ground floor of the side elevation of the two storey side extension and replacement with non opening and obscurely glazed window units.

 

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

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1&2)  By reason of its size, form, massing and direct proximity to the boundary with No. 27 Colcot Road, the two storey extension to the rear of the dwelling represents an overbearing and insensitively sited form of development that unacceptably impacted upon the residential amenities of the neighbouring property.  The development was, therefore, in conflict with the aims of Policy ENV27 (Design of New Development) of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011, the Council's Approved Amenity Standards Supplementary Planning Guidance and the guidance provided in the Council's Adopted Design Guide for Householder Development produced by the Planning Officers Society for Wales with the support of the Welsh Assembly Government (October 2005).

 

 

1071   PLANNING APPLICATIONS (DEER) -

 

Having considered the applications for planning permission and, where necessary, the observations of interested parties,

 

RESOLVED - T H A T in pursuance of powers delegated to the Committee, the following applications be determined as indicated and any other necessary action taken.

REFUSED     Written Representations

 

1.         In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority the applicant has failed to demonstrate sufficient agricultural justification for a second agricultural dwelling on the holding in that neither the proposed Transfer of Management Agreement (to pass the management of the holding to a younger person who would reside in the second dwelling on the established holding) is sufficiently clear and precise to meet the requirements of TAN 6, nor has it been demonstrated that the existing functional agricultural worker needs of the holding are sufficient to meet the exception set out under section 4.5 of TAN 6. The proposal therefore amounts to unjustified residential development in the countryside, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV27 - Design of New Developments; HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside; and HOUS5 - Agriculture or Forestry Dwellings of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales Edition 4 (February 2011) and Technical Advice Note 6 – Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities (July 2010).

 

2.         By reason of its siting, design and scale, the proposed new dwelling would cause harm to the rural and special landscape character of the area, particularly given its visibility from a nearby public footpath, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV4 – Special landscape Areas, ENV27 - Design of New Developments; HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside; and HOUS5 - Agriculture or Forestry Dwellings, of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales Edition 4 (February 2011) and Technical Advice Note 6 – Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities (July 2010).

6.         Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (or any Order revoking and re-enacting that Order) no building, structure or enclosure required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of a dwelling-house shall be constructed, erected, or placed within the curtilage of the residential annexe hereby approved without the prior written consent of the Local Planning Authority.

           

            Reason:

           

            To enable the Local Planning Authority to control the scale of development in the interests of the character and appearance of the surrounding countryside in accordance with Policies ENV8 - Small Scale Rural Conversions; and ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the Unitary Development Plan.

            Reason:

           

            To ensure adequate mitigation for protected species in accordance with Policy ENV16 - Protected Species of the Unitary Development Plan, TAN5 - Nature Conservation and Planning, and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010.

REFUSED     Written representations

 

1.         In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority the proposal represents an unjustified and unacceptable new dwelling in an unsustainable countryside location that would have a significant harmful impact on the character and setting of the Hensol Castle Grade II Historic Park and the surrounding rural landscape of the Ely Valley and Ridge Slopes Special Landscape Area, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas; ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside; ENV11 - Protection of Landscape Features; ENV27 - Design of New Developments; HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside; and Strategic Policies 1 & 2-The Environment and 8 - Transportation of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Development and Design in the Landscape; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales and TAN12 - Design.

 

2.         Insufficient information has been submitted, with regard to the character of this site, the location of European Protected Species in the vicinity, and locally important habitats adjacent to it, to allow the Council to assess the effect of the development on ecological interests or biodiversity.  Accordingly the development would fail to accord with Planning Policy Wales (Feb. 2011), Polices ENV 11 Protection Of Landscape Features ENV 15 Local Sites Of Nature Conservation Significance, ENV 16 Protected Species of the Unitary Development Plan and the Council’s adopted Supplementary planning guidance ‘Biodiversity and Development’.

Convert the existing ground floor office into a takeaway and install an additional flue pipe

 

REFUSED -

 

1.         The proposed takeaway would be detrimental to the general and visual amenities of nearby residential occupiers by virtue of smells, noise, general disturbance, and the appearance of the proposed extraction flue within the street scene, and would result in additional pressure for on-street parking close to a road junction to the detriment of highway safety.  The development would therefore be contrary to Policies SHOP 10 – New Take Away Outlets, ENV27 - Design of New Developments; ENV29 - Protection of Environmental Quality and TRAN10 - Parking of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011.
