1036   HOLTON ROAD COMMERCIAL RENEWAL AREA GRANT SCHEME - REVIEW AND  OPTIONS APPRAISAL (REF - CABINET: 10TH MARCH, 2014) -

 

Cabinet, on 10th March, 2014 was asked to review the Grant Scheme and to consider options for moving the Grant Scheme forward.

 

The Local Government Act 2000 (Part 1 Section 2 Promotion of well-being) included powers for local authorities, having regard to their Community Strategy; to do anything which they considered was likely to achieve the promotion or improvement of the economic, social and environmental well-being of their area.  Having regard to the Local Government Act 2000, Cabinet (25th July 2007, Minute no C3155) approved the designation of a Commercial Renewal Area on Holton Road. 

 

The Commercial Renewal Area offered grants on a discretionary basis for small scale high quality works such as the removal of unsightly solid roller shutters and the provision of new signage. The grants had been offered up to a maximum of 50% of the total costs of the eligible external works.

 

The Grant Scheme had been funded from 2007/08 by a Capital Programme allocation of £50,000 entitled 'Holton Road Shopfront Improvements'. The grants were administered by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and were available for commercial premises within a defined area.  An indicative boundary of the grant eligible area was outlined  at Appendix A attached to the report.

 

As a result of the review the following options were available for the Grant Scheme:

 

Option 1: stop the Grant Scheme due to diminishing budgets; the low take up rate; and, the limited overall impact on the street scene.

 

Option 2: Subject to funding, extend the Grant Scheme and continue to offer grants up to a maximum of 50% of the total costs of the eligible works.

 

Option 3: Subject to funding, expand the Grant Scheme to offer two distinct grant products.  The first grant product, Commercial Improvement Grant, would continue to support the eligible works supported by the current Grant Scheme but at a higher grant intervention rate of up to a maximum of 65% of eligible costs.  The second grant product, Town Centre Living Grant, would provide assistance for external works to create separate entrances to access vacant and redundant space above shop frontages to assist owners to bring that space into use for residential purposes (subject to any necessary planning permission). 

 

Option 1 was not favoured as it would be contrary to the Welsh Government's regeneration framework, 'Vibrant and Viable Places' and the policy emphasis on supporting the regeneration of town centres; and, the Council's Town Centre Framework in relation to this part of Holton Road.  Option 2 was not favoured as the grant intervention rate of 50% was unlikely to improve the take up rate.  It was also considered that Option 2 would be a missed opportunity for the Council to take the lead and bring benefits not just to the main shopping area on Holton Road in terms of additional footfall but to the general housing needs of the area.  Option 3 was therefore favoured and recommended for approval.  That said Options 3 was subject to budget decisions to ensure that there was funding available during 2014/15 for the Grant Scheme to operate.  The remaining element of the 2013/14 'Holton Road Shopfront Improvements' budget £5,065 would have to be slipped.  There was also scope for further funding of £76,797, which was the remaining element of the Valegate Retail Park s106/ planning obligation contribution (Application No. 2008/00481/FUL).  This sum was identified for public realm works in Barry Town Centre (Cabinet 3rd February 2010, Minute C757 refers) and could therefore be included in the Capital Programme 2014/15 for the Grant Scheme as described in Option 3.

 

This was a matter for Executive and Council decision.

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)       T H A T the findings of the review of the Holton Road Commercial Renewal Area Grant Scheme be noted.

 

(2)       T H A T the proposal outlined in paragraph 12 (Option 3) of the report be approved.

 

(3)       T H A T it be recommended to Council that the remaining element of the 2013/14 budget £5,065 be slipped and be included in the 2014/15 Capital Programme. 

 

(4)       T H A T it be recommended to Council that the remaining element of the Valegate Retail Park planning obligation contribution £76,797 (Application No. 2008/00481/FUL) be included in the 2014/15 Capital Programme. 

 

(5)       T H A T the Director of Development Services in consultation with the Director of Resources and the Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Innovation, Planning and Transportation be given delegated authority to approve grants as part of the Commercial Renewal Area Grant Scheme.

 

(6)       T H A T the report be referred to Planning Committee for their information.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To note the progress being made on this matter.

 

(2)       To enable the continuation of the Grant Scheme in part of Holton Road, as part of a package of incentives to assist owners to bring redundant empty space back into use for residential purposes.

(5)       To provide a flexible and responsive means of determining grant applications.

1037   THE VALE OF GLAMORGAN LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2011-2026 REVIEW OF DELIVERY AGREEMENT TIMETABLE (JUNE 2013) (REF) -

 

Cabinet, on 24th March, 2014 was advised of the need to revise the Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan 2011 - 2026 (LDP) indicative timetable contained within the Delivery Agreement (June 2013) and approval was sought for the changes from the Welsh Government (WG) in accordance with the Town and Country (Local Development Plan) (Wales) Regulations 2005.

 

Part 6 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 placed a duty on each local authority in Wales to prepare a Local Development Plan (LDP). The Town and Country Planning (Local Development Plan) (Wales) Regulations 2005 prescribed the form and content of the LDP and made provision for the procedure to be followed in its preparation. The LDP would provide a sustainable land use framework to guide future growth within the Vale of Glamorgan between 2011 and 2026.

 

The Vale of Glamorgan Deposit LDP was approved for public consultation at Council on 23rd October 2013 and subsequently underwent a formal six week public consultation ending at 5pm on Friday 20th December 2013.

 

Following public consultation the Deposit LDP Representations Register was made available view on the Council's website in early March 2014 and on request at other deposit locations in mid March 2014. A further public consultation was now required on the site allocation representations that had been received that suggested Alternative Sites to those in the Deposit LDP.

 

The Alternative Sites public consultation was anticipated to take place between Thursday 20th March 2014 and Thursday 1st May 2014, some two months earlier than previously indicated in the June 2013 DA timetable.  To assist the public with this process, consultation events would be held in Cowbridge (26th March), St. Athan (1st April), Penarth (2nd April), Llantwit Major (7th April) and Barry (8th April) between 2pm and 6pm.  Further details on these events can be found at www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/ldp.

 

Welsh Government guidance under paragraph 4.11 of LDP Wales and paragraph 4.6.2 of the LDP Manual required local authorities to define the indicative timetable contained within the DA within three months of the close of the formal six week deposit period.  Accordingly, a revised DA timetable had been prepared by officers setting out the timescales for the remaining stages.  A copy of the revised DA timetable was attached at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

The revised DA timetable indicated that submission of the LDP and associated documents to the Welsh Government for Examination in April / May 2015 with an Adoption date of September / October 2016 assuming there were no unforeseen delays to the programme. This was earlier than the previous indicative Adoption Date of January 2017.

 

Subject to approval by Cabinet and Council the revised DA including the amended timetable would be forwarded to the Welsh Government to seek their approval to the amendments and to comply with Regulation 9 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Development Plan) (Wales) Regulations 2005, paragraph 4.11 of LDP Wales and paragraph 4.6.2 of the LDP Manual.

 

This was a matter for Executive and Council decision.

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)       T H A T the contents of the report and the implications for the Local Development Plan timetable attached at Appendix 1 to the report be noted.

 

(2)       T H A T the revisions to the Local Development Plan indicative timetable contained within the Council's Delivery Agreement (June 2013) as proposed in the report be approved.

 

(3)       T H A T approval be sought from the Welsh Government to formally amend the Local Development Plan timetable contained within the Council's Delivery Agreement (June 2013).

 

(4)       T H A T those individuals and organisations previously consulted on the drafting of the Local Development Plan Delivery Agreement be advised of the revisions detailed within the report.

 

(5)       T H A T the report be referred to Council to seek approval for the revisions to the indicative Local Development Plan timetable contained within the Council's Delivery Agreement (June 2013).

 

(6)       T H A T a copy of the report be referred to Planning Committee for information purposes.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To note the progress made on the Local Development Plan and of the need to define the reaming stages of the Local Development Plan Delivery Agreement timetable.

 

(2)       To approve the revisions to the Council's Delivery Timetable.

 

(3)       To comply with Regulation 9 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Development Plan) (Wales) Regulations 2005.

(5)       To gain Full Council agreement on the proposed revisions to the indicative Local Development Plan timetable contained within the Council's Delivery Agreement (June 2013).

1043   ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) -

 

(i)         Land and Buildings at Swn-y-Mor Stables, Wick -

 

Swn-y-Mor Stables, Glan-y-Mor Lane, Broughton related to a parcel of agricultural land and stable buildings located within the open countryside approximately 1.2km to the south west of Wick.  The site was also located within the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which was recognised for its national importance as an area of attractive undeveloped coastline.  The site was accessed via a track from Glan Y Mor lane. The stable complex was made up of two linear pitched roof buildings, providing accommodation in the form of 10 stables, tack room, feed store and farm office and the site currently accommodated a number of animals including horses, ponies, chickens, dogs and cats.

 

A complaint was received by the Local Planning Authority on 12th May 2009, regarding the residential use of land at Swn-Y-Mor Stables, Wick.  Following an inspection of the site, it was confirmed by the owner of the site that Swn-y-Mor was used as his main place for the breeding and foaling of horses.  He confirmed that he did not live at the site and that he lived at No. 1, Rover Way, Cardiff and that he had a land line and post box at this site for his business.  In view of this information, a Planning Contravention Notice was served on the owner on 28th October 2010. which was completed and signed by the owner confirming that he did not live at the site and that he currently lived at No. 1, Rover Way, Cardiff.  In view of this, it was evident that no breach of planning control had occurred at the site and the case was then closed.

 

A further complaint was received on 24th December 2012 which alleged that the site known as Swn-y-Mor was being used for residential purposes.  Since that investigation, the owner made an appeal appeal against the Council’s refusal of  planning permission for the use of another site in his ownership, land at The Stables, Redway Road, Bonvilston, as a single pitch gypsy and traveller site.  At the hearing on 31st July, 2012, the owner confirmed that he did reside at Swn-y-Mor and had for some time.  In view of this, the owner was written to advising him that planning permission was required for the use of the land for residential purposes.

 

After receipt of the most recent complaint, an initial site inspection was carried out and it was noted that a mobile caravan and two horse lorries were being stored at the site.  The owner was also present at the site and confirmed verbally that he was currently living at the site and was sleeping in the cabin of the large commercial horse lorry.  He also confirmed that the mobile caravan was being stored at the site but was not being used for residential purposes, however from viewing inside the mobile caravan it was noted that a bed was made up and the seating area was well kept and there were domestic items such as photo frames displayed.  He confirmed that he did not want to live at the site as he was no longer allowed to keep and breed horses at the site and as soon as he was able he would look to move to the approved site in Bonvilston.  There was no planning permission for the material change of use of the site for the siting of a residential caravan and large commercial horse lorry; therefore, the residential use of the mobile caravan and horse lorry were in breach of planning control.

 

In light of the Planning Contravention Notice issued on 28th October, 2010 and the subsequent confirmation at an appeal hearing on 12th July, 2012 that the owner had resided at Swn-y-Mor for some time, a letter was sent to the owner on 7th June, 2013 and  15th January, 2014 which advised him that planning permission was required for the use of the site for residential purposes.  To date, no planning application had been submitted.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the Head of Legal 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 cessation of the use of the land for the siting of a large commercial horse lorry and mobile caravan and their use for residential purposes.

 

(ii)        The permanent removal of the horse lorry and caravan from the land.

 

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

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  In view of the findings above, in terms of the use of the site for residential purposes by virtue of the siting of a large horse lorry and mobile caravan is considered to be an unjustified form of development given the limited size and extent of of equine activities on the site.  The residential use is also considered to be inappropriate development, given the context and location of the site.  Accordingly, the use of the site for residential purposes is considered to conflict with Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, HOUS2 - Additional Residential Development, HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside and HOUS5 - Agricultural and Forestry Dwellings of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011; as well as Planning Policy Wales (February 2014) and Technical Advice Note 6: Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.  In addition, in view of the prominent siting and location of the mobile caravan and large commercial horse lorry, it is considered to be an incongruous form of development that causes harm to the character and appearance of this rural location recognised for its attractive undeveloped coastline features contrary to Policy ENV5 - Glamorgan Heritage Coast, ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside and ENV27 - Design of New Development of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.

 

 

1044   GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS (DDS) -

 

(I)         Land at Barry Waterfront Adjacent to Dock No. 1, Barry: Planning Permission 2009/00946/OUT -

 

The Committee were minded to recall that an urgent report regarding the variation of the legal agreement which had been signed under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act regarding the above planning application was reported to the 13th March Planning Committee and was subsequently agreed.  This variation sought to amend the terms of the Section 106 Agreement relating to 2009/00946/OUT to agree the following:

  • Amendments to the affordable housing provisions so that the 15% provision with regard to Phase 1 would provide a split of 50% Social Rented Housing Units (or 7.5% of the overall 15%) with the remaining 50% of Dwellings to be Intermediate Housing Units.
  • The inclusion of supplemental obligations to require the construction of the Barry Island Link Road in accordance with the terms of the proposed loan agreement , once concluded.

The Committee received the report to update it on the progress of the matter.

 

The original Section 106 agreement related to outline planning permission ref. 2009/00946/OUT for the development of vacant land at Barry Waterfront for residential (C3), retail (A1), cafes, bars and restaurants (A3), hotel (C1), offices (B1) and community and leisure uses (D1 and D2).  The development included vehicular and pedestrian/cycle access including a new link road, re-grading of the site to form new site levels and associated infrastructure works, parking, servicing, landscaping, public realm and public open space provision.

 

The site subject to the agreement relates to a total area of previously developed land of approximately 43 Hectares which surrounds the No. 1 Dock at Barry Waterfront.  Apart from an area to the south of the dock, identified as the South Quay, the site comprises most of the land that remains undeveloped from the earlier outline consent, reference 94/00144/OUT.

 

The principal change agreed within the Deed of Variation was an amendment to the mix of Affordable Housing Units in Phase 1 and the link to the requirement to provide the Barry Island link road.

 

For completeness, and clarity, the Committee noted that the agreed approach related to Phase 1 of the scheme as now defined by the discharge of Condition No. 8 of the planning consent and as attached at Appendix 1 to the report on the plan.  This Plan identified Phase 1 as West Pond Parts 1 and 2, but excluded Arno Quay, which was originally intended to be brought forward as Part of Phase 1, as initially defined in the master plan submitted with the outline planning application.  The Committee were also aware that three detailed consents (Approval of Reserved Matters) had already been issued for residential development within this phase of development.

 

The loan agreement to facilitate the early delivery of the new link road had now been signed. In broad terms, the agreement aimed to secure the bringing forward of the construction of the final stage of the Link Road.  The terms of the agreement would allow a maximum period of a year for the Developer to obtain necessary consents.

Upon receipt of consents, the Developer must commence works within a year and complete the construction of the road to adoptable standard within a period of 18 months from commencement, subject to 'force majeure' provisions.

 

The Committee noted the timescales were designed to impose limits on the time allowed to agree design and subsequently construct the road.  The developer had indicated that the current programme proposed that the new road link would be completed during Summer 2015.

 

The Committee recognised that the provision of the Link Road to the Island would allow a second means of access to a major visitor destination in Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan. Currently, the only means of vehicular access to the Island is via the Causeway.  The ongoing improvements to the Island in recent years and the current regeneration scheme, had resulted in increased popularity of the Island as a destination for visitors.  The provision of a second direct road to the Island was seen as fundamental to linking the Island with the Town and providing an alternative direct means of access.

 

Following consideration of the report, the Committee

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the contents of the report be noted.

Land between Heritage Coast House and site of the former Sealawns Hotel, Main Road, Ogmore by Sea

 

Erection of 4 no. four bedroom dwellings and garages served by a private drive

 

REFUSED    (written representations)

 

1.         By reason of the site's location, its unspoilt rural/coastal character and the relationship it has with the surrounding built and natural environment, the proposed development would represent an inappropriate and visually intrusive form of development, that would be significantly harmful to the special environmental and landscape qualities of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Consequently it would not amount to an acceptable or sensitive form of 'rounding off' and would be contrary to Policies ENV5, ENV27, HOUS2 and HOUS8 of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan and the advice contained in Planning Policy Wales (Edition 6, 2014) regarding infill development.

 

2.         The proposed residential development has been submitted in outline with all matters reserved.  In the absence of sufficient information to fully assess the proposed access, the applicant has failed to sufficiently demonstrate that a safe and adequate access could be made to the site, which would not be prejudicial to the safety and free flow of traffic and pedestrian safety. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments and the aims of Policy HOUS 8 - Residential Development Criteria, of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011.

Proposed new rural enterprise dwelling incorporating bed and breakfast in connection with Vale Carriages and change of use of land for two shepherds huts for visitors

 

REFUSED    (written representations)

 

1.         The proposed dwelling and bed and breakfast accommodation are not supported by sufficient justification that a countryside location is essential and a functional need for a dwelling in association with the proposed bed and breakfast and Vale Carriages has not been adequately demonstrated.  The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies ENV1 -  Development in the Countryside, ENV10 -  Conservation of the Countryside, TOUR1 - New Hotels in the Countryside and TOUR3 - Conversion of Buildings to Guest Houses and Bed and Breakfast Accommodation with Settlement Boundaries of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011,  Paragraph 9.4.3 of Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5 November 2012), Section 4.8 of TAN 6 - Sustainable Rural Communities (July 2010) and Section 4 of Practice Guidance - Rural Enterprise Dwellings – Technical Advice Note 6 (December 2011).

 

2.         Notwithstanding the absence of a demonstrated functional need, the proposed dwelling, by reason of its scale and form, is considered to be excessive for the needs of the rural enterprise in question, and demonstrably harmful on the character and appearance of the wider countryside and the designated Heritage Coast, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, ENV5 - Heritage Coast, ENV27 - Design of New Developments, and HOUS2 - Dwellings in the Countryside of the UDP and the advice contained within Planning Policy Wales and Technical Advice Note 6: Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.

 

3.         The application has failed to provide sufficient information on which to assess the proposal with regard the potential impact on trees on the site and adjacent boundary and is therefore considered that the applicant has failed to demonstrate that trees would not be unacceptably impacted, contrary to policies ENV11 and ENV27 of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011

Reason:

           

To comply with the requirements of Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

 

2.         This consent shall only relate to the amended plans reference 1015-02 Rev F received on 14/02/2014 and 1015-09 received on 14/03/2014 the development shall be carried out strictly in accordance with these details.

           

Reason:

           

To ensure a satisfactory form of development and for the avoidance of doubt as to the approved plans.

 

3.         The layout of the development hereby approved shall relate to that shown on plan reference 1015-02/5 only (received on the 14 February 2014).

           

Reason:

                       

To ensure a satisfactory form of development and for the avoidance of doubt as to the approved plans / development.

 

4.         Prior to their use in the construction of the development hereby approved, a schedule of the proposed materials to be used shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and the development shall thereafter be carried out in accordance with the approved details.

           

Reason:

           

To ensure a satisfactory standard of development and to ensure compliance with Policy ENV27 of the Unitary Development Plan.

 

5.         The occupancy of the dwelling within the converted building hereby approved shall be restricted to:

           

a)         a person solely or mainly working, or last working on a rural enterprise in the locality, or a widow, widower or surviving civil partner of such a person, and to any resident dependants;

           

            or, if it can be demonstrated that there are no such eligible occupiers,

           

b)         a person or persons who would be eligible for consideration for affordable housing under the local authority's housing policies, or a widow, widower or surviving civil partner of such a person, and to any resident dependants.

           

Reason:

           

Since a dwelling in this rural location would not be permitted unless justified for a rural enterprise, and in order to ensure that the dwelling is kept available to meet the needs of other rural enterprises in the locality, in accordance with advice in Technical Advice Note 6 - Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.

 

6.         The proposed building to be used as an Equine Facility as hereby approved shall only be used for this specific use as detailed in the application and at no time shall the site be used for any other purpose, except for the purpose of agriculture.

                       

Reason:

                       

To control the precise nature of the site, since an unrestricted Class D1 use would be inappropriate in this rural location in accordance with the Unitary Development Plan Policies ENV1 and ENV27.

 

7.         Should the use of the equestrian  building herby approved or its use for the purposes of agriculture within the unit permanently cease within ten years from the date on which the development was substantially completed; and

           

(i)         Planning permission has not been granted, or has not been deemed to be granted under Part III of the Act, for development for purposes other than agriculture, within three years from the date on which the use of the building for the equestrian purposes or for  agriculture within the unit permanently ceased, then, unless the local planning authority have otherwise agreed in writing, the development shall be removed from the land and the land shall, so far as is practicable, be restored to its condition before the development took place.

Proposed new dwelling in garden of property on site of existing tennis court

 

REFUSED    (written representations)

 

1.         In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority it is considered that the proposal represents an unjustified and unsustainable new dwelling in this isolated countryside location, remote from day to day amenities and services, where prospective occupiers would be over reliant on the private car, and that would cause demonstrable harm to the undeveloped, unspoilt rural character of the surrounding landscape contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas, ENV10 - Conservation in the Countryside, ENV27 - Design of New Developments, HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside, and Strategic Policies 1 & 2 - The Environment, 3 - Housing; and 8 - Transportation of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan, Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Development, Design in the Landscape and Amenity Standards, and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales ed.6 (2014), TAN6 - Planning for Rural Communities, and TAN12 - Design.

 

2.         By reason of its size, location and visual prominence from surrounding views, the proposed development would adversely impact upon a significantly important landscape (as identified within the Council's Penmark Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan 2009) which contributes considerably to the visual amenity and character of the Penmark Conservation Area; the 'Nant Llancarfan' Special Landscape Area, and the surrounding rural setting. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to Policies ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas'; ENV 17- Protection of the Built and Historic Environment, ENV 20- Development in Conservation Areas and ENV 27- Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, the Council's Penmark Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan 2009 and the advice contained within Planning Policy Wales 6th Edition.

Removal of Condition 16 of planning permission 2013/00861/FUL, relating to two cabins for holiday let.

 

Councillor J.C. Bird made a statement refuting comments made by the applicant in late representations as to his conduct in respect of the application.  Councillor Bird withdrew from the meeting whilst this application was considered.

 

The Chairman referred to the applicant’s comment that Councillor Bird had requested the site visit and, by way of clarification stated that it was he who had requested the site visit, not Councillor Bird.

 

REFUSED    (written representations)

 

1.         It is considered that the applicant has failed to provide sufficient justification for the removal of Condition No. 16, having regard to its isolated rural location in an area with an extensive network of public footpaths whereby the character of the countryside should be protected  against unnecessary and unjustified development and thus the removal of  Condition No. 16 is therefore not considered to be acceptable, having regard to the provisions Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; ENV10 - Conservation in the Countryside and ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan, Planning Policy Wales (Edition 6, 2014) or of Technical Advice Note 6 - Agriculture and Rural Development, and TAN13 - Tourism.
