157            WELSH GOVERNMENT CONSULTATION: PLANNING FOR WASTE - REVISION TO CHAPTER 12 OF PLANNING POLICY WALES AND TECHNICAL ADVICE NOTE (REF) -

 

Approval was sought from Cabinet on 3rd June, 2013 for the Council's formal response to the consultation, a copy of which was attached at Appendix A to the report. 

 

Planning Policy Wales (PPW) set the context for sustainable land use planning policy within which local authorities statutory Local Development Plans were prepared and development control decisions on individual planning applications and appeals were made.

 

The consultation document explained that both planning policy and technical advice must reflect the changes made by the EUs revised Waste Framework Directive in terms of the priority order of waste management and the new policies, priorities and targets for waste set out in 'Towards Zero Waste' and the suite of Sector Plans that helped deliver it.

 

Consideration therefore needed to be given to how planning policy could reflect and interact with these new waste policy drivers in a way that delivered these objectives whilst ensuring compliance with European obligations.

 

The planning system was a devolved area and therefore it was essential that it aligned with policy areas including waste to support the delivery of objectives through planning and the identification of suitable sites.  The draft TAN 21 document explained the interactions between the National Waste Strategy, particularly the Collections, Infrastructure and Markets Sector Plan, Planning Policy Wales and the Regional Waste Plan.  The Welsh Government were also proposing to revise the principles of PPW in relation to development control and the reduction and management of waste, which was currently set out in PPW Chapter 12, paragraphs 12.5-12.7.

 

The main proposed changes were as follows:

 

·               Acknowledging that waste policy targets and drivers had evolved and consequently the Regional Waste Plans, which were based upon land take, were now outdated and should be revoked.

·               Introduced a requirement for data collection, monitoring and annual reports.  These could be used as evidence to support development plans and planning decisions.

·               Introduced a requirement to keep a minimum amount of landfill capacity in each region (north, south west and south east) relative to a trigger point (level for this trigger point was part of the consultation).  Hitting the trigger would result in the site search and selection process to identify suitable locations for landfill.

·               Updating policy direction to enable waste facilities to move at the waste hierarchy through the introduction of a Waste Planning Assessment.

 

Cabinet had resolved:

 

(1)       That Appendix A to the report be endorsed as the Council's formal response to the Welsh Government consultation on 'Planning for Waste - Revision to Chapter 12 of Planning Policy Wales and Technical Advice Note 21) Waste'.

 

(2)       That the report be referred to Planning Committee and Economy and Environment Scrutiny Committee for information.

 

 

Having considered the decision of Cabinet, Planning Committee

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the decision of Cabinet be noted.

 

Reason for decision

 

Having regard to the decision of Cabinet.

 

 

158            ANNUAL REPORT - SECTION 106 LEGAL AGREEMENTS 2012-2013 (REF) -

 

Cabinet, on 17th June, 2013 was informed of progress on Section 106 (Planning Obligation) matters that have arisen in the last financial year, April 2012 - March 2013. 

 

In the 12 months, a total of 12 planning permissions had been issued which had been subject to Section 106 Legal Agreements.  A list of these was attached at Appendix A to the report and the value of the financial contributions in the legal agreements was £511,873. 

 

In the previous financial year, 2011/12 a total of 18 planning permissions were signed with a financial value of £10,263,858.68 which was principally due to the major Barry Waterfront development which represented a £8,093,600.00 financial obligations package.

 

The financial contributions secured through these legal agreements would be used to provide or enhance facilities off site, such as sustainable transport facilities, public open space, community facilities and more. 

 

The planning obligation requirements secured this year had also included 'in-kind' obligations such as on site affordable housing, on site public open space and recreational facilities, and public art.

 

Between April 2012 and March 2013, the Council had received financial and in-kind obligations in respect of a number of previously outstanding planning agreements including the interest payments where applicable.  The Council's Section 106 account currently held £2,213,336.69 with £406,938.86 having been spent this year through implementation of Section 106 projects.

 

This year, implementation had included works to improve steps from Main Street to Victoria Park in Cadoxton, improvements to local schools, delivery of affordable housing and provision of bus services.

 

Following the annual monitoring report for 2011/12 Members had raised concerns about the time taken to implement Section 106 spend and at its meeting on 5th November, 2012, Cabinet had resolved to endorse an updated protocol for the implementation of Section 106 obligations.  When financial obligations were received, the relevant service areas were notified and Member consultation undertaken at the same time so that ideas for spend could be identified at the earliest opportunity.

 

Cabinet had resolved:

 

(1)       That the progress made on Section 106 matters between April 2012 and March 2013 be noted.

 

(2)       That the report be referred to Planning Committee, Scrutiny Committee (Economy and Environment) and Community Liaison Committee for information.

 

Having considered the details of the report, Planning Committee

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the decision of Cabinet be noted.

 

Reason for decision

 

Having regard to the decision of Cabinet.

(ii)        Confirmation of Tree Preservation Order No. 3, 2013 -

 

The trees subject to the report were located within an east facing garden of No. 1 Portland Close which was on the corner of Marine Parade and Alberta Road in Penarth.  The garden overlooked an intersection of roads at a roundabout in an area of the coastal edge with the Bristol Channel beyond and on the southern edge of Penarth Conservation Area.  This was an area characterised by mature street trees in front of large detached dwellings comprising a mix of Victorian / Edwardian villas built to exploit sea views in a coastal landscape setting and modern re-developed plots.  Portland Close consisted of four detached modern dwellings within a large plot once served as a garden to a large older property. 

 

Six weeks advance notification of Work to Trees Within a Conservation Area had been given by Acorn Trees on behalf of the owner stating the intention to remove a Yew tree and to reduce the crown of an Oak tree by 20% at the property.

 

Reasons for the work were cited as:

 

·               Yew - growing too near wall, causing wall to crack and bulge.

·               Oak - tree had been formerly partially reduced due to dead section in upper crown.  The owners had noted smaller sized limbs being lost on bad weather.  A reduction would help it form a more compact crown.

 

It was considered that the Yew and the Oak contributed significantly to the visual amenity and were both of reasonable health and without a structural surveyors report stating the contrary, there was insufficient justification for the loss of two attractive trees and it was therefore

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the Order be confirmed.

 

Reason for decision

 

There was insufficient justification for the loss of the two attractive trees.

 

(N.B. Councillors Ms. R. Birch and M.R. Wilson withdrew from the room during consideration of the above item).

 

 

164            ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) -

 

(i)         Land and Buildings at Cambrian Residential Park, off Brooklands Terrace, Culverhouse Cross -

 

Planning Committee on 6th June, 2013 had agreed that formal enforcement proceedings be taken to ensure the erection of a fence at the rear of the caravan park to protect the amenities of neighbouring properties. 

 

It was now noted that the occupiers of the adjoining property had constructed a section of trellis fencing, measuring approximately 0.5 metres high, on top of the existing boundary fence.  Whilst this did not totally obscure views from the caravan site into their property, this did alleviate the issue of overlooking. 

 

Accordingly, in the light of the erection by the neighbour of a trellis fence, it was considered that the matter had been resolved and it was therefore no longer considered expedient to pursue planning enforcement action in respect of the breach of planning control at the site.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T no further action be taken in regard to the unauthorised works at the Cambrian Caravan Park.

 

Reason for decision

 

The overlooking issue has now been resolved by the owners of the neighbouring dwellings.

 

 

165            PLANNING APPLICATIONS (DDS) -

 

Having considered the applications for planning permission and where necessary to 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:

Installation and operation of a ground mounted solar photovoltaic facility (generation capacity of approximately 4.9 megawatts)

 

REFUSED

 

The proposed site is located within the Lower Thaw Valley Special Landscape Area, and forms part of the 'Llancarfan Historic Landscape LANDMAP character area', which has been evaluated as Outstanding (of National or International Importance).  The proposed development of a ground mounted solar photovoltaic facility, by reason of its location, size and appearance, would result in an adverse and harmful impact on the wider character and setting of this historic and sensitive landscape, and reduce the overall visual amenity of this part of the countryside, including from the nearby village and Conservation Area of Flemingston and individual rural residential properties.  The impact on the historic landscape would therefore outweigh any benefits attributed to benefits of sustainable energy production and reduction of carbon footprint, such that the proposal fails to comply with Chapter 12 of Planning Policy Wales and Section 3.15 of Technical Advice Note 8 - Planning for Renewable Energy and is also contrary to Policies ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas, ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside, ENV11 - Protection of Landscape Features, ENV17 - Protection of Built and Historic Environment and ENV27 - Design of New Developments on the Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.
