New three storey dwelling built over existing pool with access formed off Park Road.

 

Mrs. Poole expressed the view that the design of the current application represented an improvement over the previous one, although the appearance could be improved by the use of a coloured render picking up on the use of Bathstone locally, and through further consideration being given to the design of the gates.

 

Councillor Ms. Alexander and Mr. Robertson felt that the design was not pleasing to the eye, and was intrusive on the street scene.

 

Having considered the application, it was

 

RECOMMENDED – REFUSAL – the design of the proposal being considered inappropriate for this site, neither enhancing nor preserving the Conservation Area.

(ii)        Confirmation of Tree Preservation Order No. 7, 2012: Land Surrounding the HTV Centre, South of Valegate Retail Park

 

The report related to trees on land surrounding the HTV Centre south of Valegate Retail Park at Culverhouse Cross.  Trees were located to the edges of the land which currently served as parking / landscaped areas and which were planted as part of the landscaping scheme at the time the HTV Centre was developed in the late 1970s / early 1980s.

 

The service of the Order had been prompted by the planning application to develop the land following the demolition of the HTV Centre for residential purposes.  The details of the application were limited, but the Design and Landscape Assessment included a drawing showing an indicative layout of dwellings with some trees, mainly around the periphery of the site as part of (suggested) landscaping and there were numerous street trees throughout the infrastructure.  An Oak was to be retained and which was described as a veteran tree.

 

All the individual trees protected by the Tree Preservation Order No. 7, 2012 were well established specimens with most being native species or in the case of the Birches T1 to T1, closely related to Silver Birch.  In addition, there were two groups of trees: one group containing semi-mature native species and the other comprising native species of all ages – several mature Sycamores, Silver Birch, Alder and semi-mature Birch, Alder and Field Maples. 

 

A letter of objection had been received on behalf of RPS Planning and Development who were the agents for Carlton Communications Limited which detailed reasons why, in their view, the Order should be revoked:

  • because the plan is inaccurate and does not clearly show the locations of some of the protected trees
  • that very few of the trees were visible from outside the site and those that were visible were not of “any significant form or rarity”
  • the protected trees “are not in uniform with the wider landscape outside of the site” which was taken to mean that – because the trees were artificially located having been actively planted as part of a landscape scheme they strongly contrasted with the natural “wider landscape” consisting as it did of field hedgerows with occasional trees within a hedge or inside the fields
  • the majority of the trees had been neglected and had no formative pruning.  What appeared to be original stakes remain in situ and decayed / dead or broken limbs had not been attended to and some had very low crowns or very dense crowns and structural weaknesses were becoming evident.  That the Order would make addressing this neglect “a very difficult, unpractical and administrative task” and as a result the trees were likely to remain unmanaged and “those developing defective parts may pose an unacceptable risk to people and property” on the site.

The Authority’s responses to these points were as follows:

  • The Authority’s view was that the surrounding overgrown Beech hedge was to be removed as part of the development of the site, it was contended that the trees would obviously become more visible and if the Beech hedge were simply reduced to typical heights of 2 or 3 metres.
  • If residential development were approved at the site, the existing trees would enhance the location as an attractive site with a variety of good sized trees which could be incorporated into a development scheme, “soften” the new structures and distracting from the ever present traffic and traffic noise at the Culverhouse Cross roundabout junction to the benefit of new occupiers and because the “landscape” species were not too far removed from native species, this would visually aid the transition from countryside to urban build environment.  The land to the west and north west of the Retail Park was designated a Special Landscape Area and it was considered that the presence of these trees should alleviate the visual shock of a new development at its edge.
  • Trees with stakes no longer in use, low crowns and structural / stability issues could be dealt with by the submission of a detailed tree condition report with remedial recommendations.  The whole could be considered and conditioned and a planning permission to be carried out prior to development commencing.  Otherwise, it seemed certain that much of the work could be carried out under the exemption provisions of the Tree Regulations which require the Authority to be notified in writing with a few days notice of the proposed work.  However, despite the lack of formative pruning, the presence of stakes, crossing / rubbing /poorly pruned stubs and some minimal decay, many trees had developed their characteristic shape, becoming attractive specimens.

It was noted that the Authority had acted in accordance with procedures and Government guidance to protect the trees, believing them to be at risk from development pressures.  It was considered that future redevelopment of the site could adequately allow for the presence of the trees contained within the modified Order, and it was therefore

 

RESOLVED – T H A T the Order be confirmed.

 

Reason for decision

 

Having regard to the Authority’s response.

(i)         A preliminary risk assessment which has identified:

-           all previous uses

-           potential contaminants associated with those uses

-           a conceptual model of the site indicating sources, pathways and receptors

-           potentially unacceptable risks arising from contamination at the site.

           

(ii)        A site investigation scheme, based on (i) to provide information for a detailed assessment of the risk to all receptors that may be affected, including those off site.

           

(iii)       The site investigation results and the detailed risk assessment (ii) and, based on these, an options appraisal and remediation strategy giving full details of the remediation measures required and how they are to be undertaken.

           

(iv)       A verification plan providing details of the data that will be collected in order to demonstrate that the works set out in (iii) are complete and identifying any requirements for longer-term monitoring of pollutant linkages, maintenance and arrangements for contingency action.

           

            Any changes to these components require the express consent of the Local Planning Authority. The scheme shall be implemented as approved.

           

Reason:

           

The site is underlain by the Blue Lias Formation which is classed as a Principal Aquifer with Intermediate high vulnerability.  The previous use of the site as a garden centre means there is the potential for contaminative substances and materials to be present, such as fertilisers, pesticides and fuels, which could pose a threat to groundwater and other controlled waters.

 

20.      Prior to commencement of development, a verification report demonstrating completion of the works set out in the approved remediation strategy and the effectiveness of the remediation shall be submitted to and approved, in writing, by the Local Planning Authority. The report shall include results of sampling and monitoring carried out in accordance with the approved verification plan to demonstrate that the site remediation criteria have been met. It shall also include any plan (a long-term monitoring and maintenance plan) for longer-term monitoring of pollutant linkages, maintenance and arrangements for contingency action, as identified in the verification plan, and for the reporting of this to the Local Planning Authority.

           

Reason:

           

To demonstrate that the remediation criteria relating to controlled waters have been met and (if necessary) to secure longer-term monitoring of groundwater quality.

 

21.      Reports on monitoring, maintenance and any contingency action carried out in accordance with a long-term monitoring and maintenance plan shall be submitted to the local planning authority as set out in that plan. On completion of the monitoring programme a final report demonstrating that all long- term site remediation criteria have been met and documenting the decision to cease monitoring shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

           

Reason:

           

To ensure that longer term remediation criteria relating to controlled waters have been met.

 

22.      If, during development, contamination not previously identified is found to be present at the site then no further development (unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority) shall be carried out until the developer has submitted, and obtained written approval from the Local Planning Authority for, an amendment to the remediation strategy detailing how this unsuspected contamination shall be dealt with.

           

Reason:

           

Given the nature of the site it is considered possible that there may be unidentified areas of contamination at the site that could pose a risk to controlled waters if they are not remediated.

Outline planning permission for 4 No. residential dwellings in lieu of 3 No. retail units

 

REFUSED                 (Written Representations)

 

1.         The proposal would result in the loss of the existing retail units which comprise the neighbourhood centre of Fontygary, wherein Policy SHOP9 of the Unitary Development Plan favours the retention of retail uses. The principle of the development is therefore considered unacceptable and detrimental to the local community, failing to comply with Policy SHOP 9 - Protection of Retail Uses of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.

 

2.         Based on the parameters and illustrative plans forming part of this outline submission, the proposed development of 4 No. dwellings would not be achieved without adversely affecting the character of the wider street scene and visual amenities of the surrounding area and amenity of neighbouring properties. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies ENV27 - Design of New Developments; HOUS8 - Residential Development Criteria' and HOUS 11 'Residential Privacy and Space of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.
