464      WELSH GOVERNMENT CONSULTATION: DRAFT TECHNICAL ADVICE NOTE (TAN) 1 JOINT HOUSING LAND AVAILABILITY STUDIES (REF) –

 

Cabinet, on 8th September 2014, was advised of the Welsh Government’s consultation on Technical Advice Note (TAN) 1 Joint Housing Land Availability Studies and approval was sought for the report as the Council’s formal response to the consultation.

 

Planning Policy Wales (PPW) set the context for sustainable land use planning policy within which Local Authorities' statutory Local Development Plans (LDPs) were prepared and development control decisions on individual planning applications and appeals were made. PPW was supplemented by a suite of topic based Technical Advice Notes (TANs) and procedural guidance was contained within circulars and policy clarification letters.

 

It was important that planning policy continued to evolve to accommodate changing circumstances. Accordingly, the Welsh Government (WG) continually monitored PPW and TANs in relation to their objectives for Wales and when necessary, published updated national planning guidance.

 

The Council’s proposed response to the Technical Advice Note (TAN) 1 Joint Housing Land Availability Studies consultation was attached at Appendix A to the report.

 

The mains points of the Council’s proposed submission are summarised below:

 

-         Removing the ability of LPAs without an adopted UDP/LDP to evidence a five year housing supply would seriously undermine the principles of sustainable development inherent within national planning policy.  Moreover while it was good practice to incentivise LDP preparation, Welsh Government would be aware of the timetable for plan preparation which was often elongated by factors outside of a Council’s control such as judicial review and the significance of public opinion.

 

-          It was not necessarily the case that an adopted LDP ensured the provision of the required five year housing land supply. Of the 14 LPAs which had an adopted LDP, 11 presently did not have a five year housing land supply, and in the case of both Caerphilly and Merthyr Tydfil Councils neither had achieved a five year supply since adopting their LDPs in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

 

-          The proposal would increase speculative and potentially undesirable development proposals, placing unnecessary additional pressure on LPAs, at a time when resources were already being stretched - potentially redirecting resources away from LDP work, leading to delays in their progression.

 

-          The proposal was likely to lead to an increase in appeals and more worryingly legal challenges to decisions from local communities and developers.

 

-          The proposal could potentially undermine emerging LDPs as sites other than those identified within Deposit LDPs would inevitably come forward speculatively.  This was the experience of the Vale of Glamorgan during 2012/13 when the Council’s JHLAS showed a less than five year housing land supply.

 

-          Councillors had to make brave and informed decisions to approve housing schemes which were not in an adopted but time expired UDP in order to continue to ensure a five year supply was maintained.  In the Vale of Glamorgan, such decisions had been properly made by Councillors who clearly understood the reasoning behind the land supply argument.  If the proposal was to be implemented there would be no perceived benefit or incentive to approve controversial housing developments as this would not improve a Council’s Housing land supply figures.  It was possible that the planning system and more importantly the delivery of housing land could be delayed and the appeals system overwhelmed with such applications, which would be to no one’s benefit.

 

-         The prospect of the “No Plan, No Housing Supply†situation could actually hinder the LDP process, slow the delivery of housing land and undermine the ability for LPAs to appropriately and sustainably manage development and the delivery of essential infrastructure.

 

-         It was the current LDP process that required a complete and timely overhaul - presently the process was considered to be unnecessarily technical and bureaucratic which from experience disenfranchised the public; and the number of statutory consultation stages were considered cumbrous, time consuming and resource intense, and arguably the key reason of delays in LDP coverage within Wales.  This was especially the case in areas of high land values and development pressures such as the Vale of Glamorgan.

T H A T, subject to the interested person(s) first entering into a Section 106 Legal Agreement to include the following necessary planning obligations:

 

·         The dwellings shall only be constructed in accordance with a phasing plan, which shall also provide details of the phasing of the repairs to the listed buildings.  The phasing plan shall be agreed in writing prior to the commencement of the construction of any of the new dwellings.

·         Any surplus money from the sale (over and above the valuation contained in the application documents) is legally restricted such that it can only be used as a maintenance fund for buildings at Ewenny Priory (in accordance with a scheme / details to be agreed with the Local Planning Authority).

·         The money received from the sale of the land is used only to implement the repairs to the Priory House and the associated outbuildings, and

 

it having been noted that authority had been delegated to the Planning Officer to agree the specific terms of the Agreement,

1.         Approval of the access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale of the development (hereinafter called `the reserved matters`) shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority before any development is commenced.

           

            Reason:

           

            To comply with the requirements of Section 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

Change of use of dwelling to a mixed use as a dwelling and as a dog boarding kennels.

 

RESOLVED – T H A T

 

1.         In the event of the Committee agree to the following reason for refusal, 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)            Ensure that the property is not used as a dog boarding kennels

 

(ii)          To require the removal of all items, buildings or structures associated with the use of the premises as a dog boarding kennels.

 

2.         In the event of non-compliance with the above Notice, authorisation is also sought to take such legal proceedings as may be required.

 

REFUSED AND AUTHORISED ENFORCEMENT ACTION   (Written Representations)

 

1.         By reason of the location and nature of the proposed commercial kennels business within the existing dwelling, it is considered that the proposals would result in a significant level of noise and disturbance, caused by dogs barking, to the detriment of the amenities and living conditions of adjoining and nearby neighbours. Moreover, it is not considered that the impacts could be acceptably mitigated against without causing harm to neighbouring amenities.  As such, the proposed kennels use at Sunnycroft Farm would be contrary to policies ENV 27 (Design of new developments), ENV 29 (Protection of environmental quality) and EMP 2 (New business and industrial development) of the adopted Unitary Development Plan (1996-2011), and national policy found within Planning Policy Wales (Edition 7, 2014) and Technical Advice Note 11 (Noise), 1997.
