Councillor J.C. Bird

Agenda Item No. 10 - Application No. 2012/00364/FUL - Applicant

 

 

111     DRAFT SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING GUIDANCE (SPG) ON UPPER HOLTON ROAD - RESPONSE TO PUBLIC CONSULTATION (REF) -

 

The above matter had previously been considered by the Cabinet at its meeting held on 11th June, 2012. 

 

The Cabinet, having considered the above matter subsequently resolved the following:

 

"T H A T subject to consultation with the Council’s Planning Committee and Scrutiny Committee (Economy and Environment):

 

(1)       The findings of the public consultation exercise be noted and the consultation responses framed within Appendix A to the report be endorsed.

 

(2)       The Upper Holton Road SPG as set out in Appendix B to the report be amended and approved for development control purposes."

 

The above draft SPG had previously been approved by the former administration's Cabinet for consultation at its meeting held on 16th November, 2011 (Minute No. C1521 refers).  Following this approval, a 10 week public consultation exercise had been undertaken between 4th January, 2012 and 14th March, 2012 in accordance with the Council's protocol for consultation on SPGs.

 

The SPG sought to establish specific design guidelines for the future development of the Upper Holton Road local centre as well as influencing the pattern of land uses within the stated area.  With regard to influencing land issues, the draft SPG also responded to the recommendations of the Vale of Glamorgan Town and District Retail Centre by identifying a core retail area in which it was deemed prudent to consolidate retail activity.  The consultation exercise had resulted in 21 responses which came from a range of consultees including business owners, the Town Council, a housing association and an environmental organisation.  The consultation produced a mainly supportive response with some objections and a summary of all responses was detailed in Appendix A to the report. 

 

In regard to the objections received, these related to issues involving the use of financial assistance to improve the condition of commercial properties at the above location and these had been passed on for consideration of the relevant officer dealing with a separate but related consultation exercise which had been running simultaneously.  It has been acknowledged that this had created some confusion in responding to the appropriate consultation.

 

Having regard to the responses received, it was recommended that the text of the document be changed to include some background context of how the guidance should complement the existing regeneration works already taking place within the Castleland Ward.  Additionally, it was further recommended that the text of the document be changed to more explicitly highlighting that as the area was being promoted for more residential uses, the introduction of further A3 uses were likely to be resisted.  Meanwhile, the section of the SPG which discussed the Local Development Plan should also be updated to reflect the current position of the Local Development Plan process.

 

Having considered the draft SPG including the results of the consultation exercise of the same it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the draft Supplementary Planning Guidance on Upper Holton Road be endorsed for development control purposes.

118     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.

 

 

119     ENFORCEMENT - LAND AND BUILDINGS AT LAND AT VIANSHILL FARM, ST. NICHOLAS (DDS) -

(Urgent by reason of the need to make a decision prior to the next Committee due to development being undertaken without the benefit of planning permission)

 

Committee was apprised of two distinctive and separate breaches of planning control, both in close proximity being undertaken at the above farm unit.

 

The principal breach of planning control related to the 'agricultural improvement operations' being undertaken on the site, namely the tipping of waste material in the form of recycled construction rubble on the land prior to reinstating the sub and top soil.  It was noted that the Council had previously approved a temporary consent on the site which had now expired.  However, the site area as approved under that application had been exceeded by a considerable degree and therefore, the operation as a whole did not therefore benefit from planning permission.  Consequently, the first breach of planning control related to an engineering operation in the raising of grounds levels through the tipping of waste material on the site.  The second breach of planning control related to a separate parcel of land on the holding which was being used for the storage of scalpings / plaining materials.  The storage of this form of material was often considered ancillary to the principal agricultural use, as the material was used for general maintenance and improvements in and around the farming operations.  However, in this instance, the element of material storage was not being used in connection with the agricultural operation, but for the purpose of a third party's use off site and wholly separate to the agricultural operation at the above farm.  In any event, the quantity of material being stored was beyond that which could reasonably be considered as ancillary to the agricultural use.  Consequently, the deposit and storage of such materials was considered to amount to a material change of use of the land. 

 

In addition to the above matters the report also set out the background context in relation to the site which included action taken to date by officers in an attempt to regularise the breach of the original planning consent, the planning history and related policy implications in regard to the matter.

 

Discussion ensued with opposing views being expressed in regard to the merits of undertaking a site visit at the above location prior to any action taken as specified in the report.  Whilst the benefits of a site visit was acknowledged this did not outweigh the need for urgent action to be taken as recommended by officers. 

 

Having regard to the contents of the report and to the views expressed by the Committee it was

 

RESOLVED -
