310     PROPOSED REVIEW AND CONSULTATION ON SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING GUIDANCE - AFFORDABLE HOUSING (REF) -

 

The above matter had been previously considered by the Cabinet at its meeting held on 1st July, 2013 (Min. No. C1389 refers).  The report sought Cabinet’s approval for a revised Supplementary Planning Guidance in respect of Affordable Housing provision in the Vale of Glamorgan which would be subject to a public consultation exercise.

 

In 2010 the Council commissioned Three Dragons to undertake an Affordable Housing Viability Assessment (AHVA 2010) to examine the economically viable levels of affordable housing that could be sought through the planning system within the Vale of Glamorgan.

 

The AHVA identified a marked viability divide between the Rural South and Coast and Barry (West and East); and on the other hand the sub markets of Penarth, Rural and East Vale where site viability provided greater opportunities for the delivery of affordable housing.

 

In view of the findings of the AHVA the revised SPG proposed the adoption of a standard site threshold across the Vale of Glamorgan, in combination with a two tier contribution requirement to reflect the levels of viability found within the housing submarket areas. Additionally, the revised SPG attached at (Appendix 1) to the report proposed a flexible approach to meeting affordable housing need by allowing an element of off site affordable housing contributions where appropriate to meet affordable housing within areas where the need was greater.

 

In the housing sub market areas of Barry (East and West)  and Rural South and Coast, the Council required development proposals of five or more units (or 0.15 hectares) to provide as a minimum 30% on site affordable housing.

 

In the Housing sub market areas of the East Vale, Penarth and Rural Vale, the Council required development proposals of five or more units (or 0.15 hectare) to provide as a minimum 35% affordable housing.

 

In the East Vale and Rural Vale Housing Sub Markets an element of off site contribution towards the delivery of affordable housing may be acceptable, where it was demonstrated that appropriate alternative sites were available to deliver affordable housing in a timely manner elsewhere.

 

It was considered that this approach would allow the Council to secure affordable housing more strategically than previously, provide for a clear and consistent policy framework across the authority, whilst setting contributions within the thresholds identified in the AHVA in recognition of the current economic climate.

 

The SPG proposed that the implementation of the affordable housing requirements would be determined against the relevant sub housing market area postcodes taken from the AHVA within which the development was proposed.  To assist proposers of new development, the SPG included a map that identified the six submarket areas and a table containing the relevant postcodes for each submarket. This would also complement the approach currently being developed by the Council in preparing its Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

 

In accordance with the Council's procedures for the preparation of SPG's, a four week consultation would be undertaken on the proposed changes.  This would involve directly inviting relevant interested parties such as Registered Social Landlords (RSL), the Home Builders Federation and agents to comment on the revised SPG.  Following consultation, a summary of the comments and any subsequent proposed changes to the draft SPG, including a recommendation to adopt the SPG would be reported to Cabinet.

 

Having given consideration to the above matter it was

 

RESOLVED – T H A T the proposed review and consultation on Supplementary Planning Guidance – Affordable Housing be endorsed.  

 

Reason for decision

 

To allow the proposed SPG to be consulted upon and subsequently implemented.

 

 

311     ENERGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE COMMONS' SELECT COMMITTEE SECOND REPORT - A SEVERN BARRAGE? (REF) -

 

The above matter had been previously considered by the Cabinet at its meeting held on 15th July, 2013 (Min. No. C1414 refers).  Cabinet at that time were informed of the outcome of the Energy and Climate Change Commons' Select Committee's public consultation into the potential for a privately financed Severn Barrage.  The matter had been referred by the Cabinet to the Planning Committee to advise them of the outcome of the Select Committee's public consultation exercise into the potential for a Severn Barrage.

Change of use of part of office/store building to provide living accommodation and associated external alterations to building

 

As such, the proposed residential use of the existing storage building is considered contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV3 - Green Wedges, ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas; and ENV8 - Small Scale Rural Conversions of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, and would not be in full accordance with the provisions of Technical Advice Note 12 (Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities) and Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5).  

 

REFUSED     (written representations)

 

1.         The proposal would represent the unacceptable change of use of part of a recently constructed building to a residential dwelling in the countryside in an unsustainable location, where there is no sufficient overriding justification or material considerations to outweigh the policy presumption against such development. As such, the proposed residential use of the existing storage building is considered contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV3 - Green Wedges; ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas; and ENV8 - Small Scale Rural Conversions of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, and would not be in accordance with the provisions of Technical Advice Note 12 (Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities) and Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5).
