592            ENFORCEMENT ACTION (HRP) –

 

(i)         Withdrawal of Enforcement Notice – Land and Buildings at Hangars A and B, Llantwit Major Road, Llandow (Site Serv)

 

The report related to unauthorised operations at Hangars A and B (Site Serv), Llandow that had previously been reported to Planning Committee on 12th February, 2015, whereby it was resolved to issue an Enforcement Notice and Stop Notice in respect of the unauthorised use of the site as a waste recycling station. 

 

As a result of an application for planning permission (2014/01464/FUL) being submitted, in an attempt to resolve the breach of planning control, the authorised Notices were not issued immediately.  The application was determined on 15th April, 2016 and permission was refused for the retention of the unauthorised use.

 

An Enforcement Notice was issued on 10th June, 2016.  The reason for issuing the Enforcement Notice was as follows:

 

The use of the site as a waste transfer station and for the storage and processing of municipal waste is considered to have a harmful impact upon the amenities, health and safety of the public and neighbouring land and on the safety of highway users contrary to the Policies EMP2- New Business and Industrial Development, WAST1 - Provision of waste management facilities, WAST2 - Criteria for assessing waste management facilities, ENV27 – Design of New Developments and ENV29- Protection of Environmental Quality of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, as well as guidance provided in Planning Policy Wales and Technical Advice Note 21: Waste (2014).

 

An appeal was made against the refusal of the 2014/01464/FUL application shortly after the decision was issued, with a further appeal having been made in respect of the Enforcement Notice.  The appeals had been linked and were being considered by the Planning Inspectorate jointly. 

 

The site suffered a devastating fire in March 2017, prior to the public enquiry date, and Hangar B was effectively burnt to the ground.  As such, all operations on that site ceased.  During the incident, Natural Resources Wales were understood to have suspended the permit that had been issued by them for the waste recycling operation, but shortly after, partially lifted the suspension in order to allow the continued operation of the part of the site not affected by the fire, i.e. the Hangar building in the west of the site (Hangar A).

 

In May 2017 an application reference 2017/00329/FUL was submitted in an attempt to retain the use of Hangar A for the sorting of plastic, paper and cardboard only.  As  a result of the application, the linked appeals were placed into abeyance pending the determination of the application.  In November 2017 the 2017/00329/FUL application was approved.

 

The abeyance period in respect of the appeals relating to the Enforcement Notice under 2014 planning application had now ended.  As such, the report considered how the Council would proceed in light of the recent planning history and events at the site and recommended the withdrawal of the Enforcement Notice. 

 

The reasons for withdrawal of the Enforcement Notice were set out by the Principal Appeals and Enforcement Officer as follows:

 

(1)       A fire had destroyed one (Hangar B) of the two buildings on the site that were the subject of the Enforcement Notice.  The building subject to the fire was used for the sorting and bailing of black bag waste.  The processing of the waste caused an element of the adverse effects experienced outside of the site (e.g. odour and pests) and the 24 hour operation of the site being sought by the developer also resulted in further detrimental impact on the adjoining land uses.

 

(2)       Since the fire, the receipt and sorting of black bag waste had ceased at the site.  In addition to this, the 2017 permission for plastic, cardboard and paper recycling strictly prohibited the receipt, sorting, storage and export of any other type of material, including black bag waste.  Furthermore, the 2017 permission also limited the hours of operation on the site to daytime hours.  It was understood that the site was operating in accordance with the 2017 planning permission.

 

In conclusion, the officer apprised the Committee of the sufficient controls now in place that would prevent the adverse effects that formed the reason for issuing the Enforcement Notice in the first instance.  Furthermore, if the controls were not complied with, it was still open to the Council to issue a new Enforcement Notice or Breach of Condition Notice to resolve any breach.  Officers were monitoring the site in order to ensure compliance with the conditions that were in place

under the 2017 permission and were currently pursuing the submission of certain details in compliance with a number of the conditions.

 

In addition to the above, if the Enforcement Notice was not withdrawn, it was likely that the appeal would continue.  It was officers’ advice that such an appeal would be an unnecessary use of Council resources and officer time, particularly in light of the recent planning permission and the operation of the site in compliance with that permission. 

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)       T H A T in accordance with Section 173A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended), the Head of Legal Services be authorised to withdraw the Enforcement Notice issued on 10th June, 2016, in respect of the site at Hangars A and B, Llantwit Major Road, Llandow (Site Serv).

 

(2)       T H A T officers use every effort to pursue whatever enforcement action was necessary to deal with existing and ongoing breaches of planning control.

 

(3)       T H A T a further update report be provided at the next Planning Committee, as a late item, outlining the most up to date position.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       The Committee support the Officers recommendation to withdraw the Enforcement Notice issued on 10th June in respect of the site at Hangars A and B, Llantwit Major Road, Llandow.

 

(2)       Any breaches of planning control on site are identified and actioned upon.

 

(3)       Members are kept up to date on future developments at the site.
