(b)       Minutes -

 

AGREED - T H A T the minutes of the meeting held on 1st November, 2007 be accepted.

 

Whist accepting that the minute was an accurate reflection of what had been said at the meeting, Mr. Haynes expressed concern that the information provided to him in respect of Chantry Rise, Llanblethian had been incorrect.

 

The wording in Minute (b) had stated:

 

“Mr. Haynes referred to discussions at the meeting on 30th August, 2007 concerning works to a house in Llanblethian, and asked if further information was available.

 

In reply, Mr. Haynes was informed that the works to which he referred, in Chantry Rise, Llanblethian, lay outside the Conservation Area boundary, and furthermore was not a “new build”.  As such it had been deemed not necessary for the application to be brought before the Conservation Advisory Group for consideration”.

 

Mr. Haynes produced a copy of the planning application for Chantry House, and pointed out that the form had contained the words “new build”.

 

Furthermore, Mr. Haynes advised that the Conservation Group, in June 2007, had considered an application relating to a property next door to Chantry Rise, even though this too lay outside of the Conservation Area.

 

Discussions then ensued as to the criteria used to determine which planning applications were brought before the Conservation Advisory Group, and examples were given of planning applications which had been granted without having been considered by the Group, namely:

 

-           Chantry Rise, Llanblethian

-           Three Oaks

-           Limesgate Cottage

-           “The Armoury”, 46 Eastgate, Cowbridge.

 

Discussions also ensued on the treatment of applications for sites which lay outside of a Conservation Area boundary but which may impact upon the Conservation Area.

 

Following a full debate on the subject, it was

 

AGREED - T H A T a report be brought before the next meeting of the Group outlining the criteria used in determining which applications are brought before the Conservation Group, and outlining why the following applications had not been referred to the Conservation Advisory Group:

 

-           Chantry Rise, Llanblethian

-           Three Oaks

-           Limesgate Cottage

-           “The Armoury”, 46 Eastgate, Cowbridge.

(e)       Conservation Area Appraisals -

 

Members of the Group were advised regarding the preparation of 21 Conservation Area appraisals in the rural villages.

 

Members recalled the contents and recommendations of a report by consultants (the Conservation Studio) concerning issues of wider conservation area management.  The report (“Valuing Distinctive Places”) had been discussed at the last extended meeting of the Group on 26th July, 2007.

 

With regard to the findings of the report, it was recognised that a new programme of conservation area appraisals was required to provide assessments of the 38 conservation areas in the Council’s area.  Whilst the Council had completed 14 such studies in the past, there was a need to bring these up-to-date and to prepare new appraisals for those areas which currently had no such coverage.

 

The objective of the preparation of appraisals was briefly as follows to:

 

-                      achieve consensus on what is to be protected or enhanced

-                      formulate effective policies, having regard to the preparation of the Local Development Plan

-                      provide a background to making sensitive development control decisions

-                      be able to justify a designation when making development control decisions and at appeals

-                      make sympathetic proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the area’s character and appearance, including the identification of potential development opportunities if and where appropriate

-                      help residents, traders and other interested parties to understand the background to designation

-                      to help applicants for planning permission to formulate proposals.

 

The Council had recently commissioned the Conservation Studio to prepare 19 conservation area appraisals.  The villages involved were:

 

Aberthin, Boverton, Broughton, Colwinston, Dinas Powys, Llancadle, Llandow, Llangan, Llanmaes, Llantrithyd, Llanmihangel, Michaelston-le-Pit, Monknash, Pendoylan, Peterston-Super-Ely, Porthkerry, Rhoose, Saint Georges, Saint Brides Major.

 

In addition, the Council was currently preparing a pilot appraisal for Penmark which provided a framework for the other studies.  It would also prepare an appraisal for the hamlet of Drope.

 

The appraisal programme was organised in five packages:

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

 

 

(f)         Future Form and Constitution of the Conservation Advisory Group -

 

Mr. Haynes queried the progress of a report yet to be made to the Group concerning options regarding its potential future form and constitution.

 

In response, the Group were advised that the matter had been discussed internally at officer level, but was yet to be the subject of a report to the Council’s Cabinet and Planning Committee.  Following this, it would be referred for further presentation to, and discussion by, the Group.

 

AGREED - T H A T a report be made available to the next meeting of the Group advising of the programme relating to the draft document.

714     GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS (DEER) -

 

(i)         Proposal of a tree preservation order: Land at and rear of East Winds, Pen-y-Lan, Cowbridge

 

The site in question was the garden of East Winds (now know as The Bower House) and a plot of land east of this garden in Pen-y-Lan village, north of Cowbridge.

 

A provisional Order (No. 20), 2007, had been prompted by advice from a nearby resident that the absentee owner of the land east of East Winds had indicated that planning approval might be sought for development in the very near future.  As there was a young avenue of Beech trees on the land, the Order was served.  Furthermore, the owners of East Winds (The Bower House) had requested the same.

 

Representatives of the owner of the plot east of East Winds had made the following objections:

 

·                    it was not possible to clearly identify or locate a number of trees within the Order

·                    the trees were inaccurately plotted

·                    the trees were not tagged with reference numbers to aid identification

·                    a professional Arboriculturist had considered that only 11 trees, out of a total of 30, merit protection and the remainder were not worthy of a Tree Preservation Order.

 

The letter continued to request that the Tree Preservation Order either not be confirmed or that the Order be varied to reflect the condition and nature of the trees on the site.

 

The Beech “avenue” on the land east of East Winds consisted of several trees arranged to shield what was once believed to be a tennis court around the turn of the 20th Century, when the village of Pen-y-Lan was actually a large garden surrounding one property.  Their contribution to visual amenity was measured in terms of the depth and density they ascribed to this wooded track on the hamlet’s eastern entrance.  Moreover, because of their height and the elevated position of Pen-y-Lan itself, they are visible as an amalgamated whole, particular when taking the road westwards out of Trerhyngyll.  They add variety to the usual range of trees in the locality (Ash, Oak, Sycamore and Hazel) and therefore, to the biodiversity.

 

It had been pointed out that the trees on the boundary of the garden surrounding East Winds were overgrown hedgerow trees and most are leggy and diseased whilst others were in precipitous locations on the edge of land elevated above the narrow highway and just barely retained by a severely undermined stone wall.   There were two Beech trees and Scots Pine near the dwelling and just in the foreground of the aforementioned “avenue” which would be included in the modified Order.

 

The issues contained in the representations had been addressed as follows:

 

·                    the “avenue” was clearly visible, however, the Order had been modified to a group Tree Preservation Order - G1 - instead of individual references T1, T2, etc.

·                    The trees along the boundary of the garden of East Winds (The Bower House) had been removed from the Order for reasons as stated above, negating the need for clarification to their positions and identification.

·                    Whilst some of the Beech trees in the “avenue” may be of lesser quality, it is considered that they do not represent any significant hazard and should be retained in the present arrangement.  (Nearby buildings are scarce, as is traffic and other road-users, given the severely constrained width of the surrounding highway.)  The point had been made that the trees were probably planted with the intention of thinning them out, but that this had not been undertaken.  However the report did preclude consideration of any application for sympathetic thinning of the “avenue” should the Order be confirmed.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the Order be confirmed as modified.

 

Reason for decision

 

In order to address the issue of clarification and the concerns laid out in the letter of representation.

           

 

(ii)        Proposal to confirm a Tree Preservation Order: No. 90 Fontygary Road, Rhoose

 

The site in question was the whole plot of land comprising No. 90 Fontygary Road, Rhoose, once a large well-planned garden which previously included a small orchard, a small pond surrounded by various conifers, and several ornamental species such as Maple, Cherry, Amelanchier, Copper Beech.

 

A provisional Tree Preservation Order (No. 23), 2007 had been served in order to protect a number of mature and semi-mature trees within the gardens of 90 Fontygary Road.  In support of an outline planning application (reference 06/01000/OUT) for a residential development comprising six dwellings, an illustrative site layout showed a certain number of the trees being retained within the garden space attached to each dwelling.

 

A letter of objection to the provision Tree Preservation Order had been received from agents acting on behalf of the owner of 90 Fontygary Road detailing concerns that included:

 

·                    the trees were inaccurately plotted on the Order

·                    they are not referenced with individual number tags on site

·                    the tree survey submitted with the planning application reference 06/01000/OUT had commented on the status and condition of all trees on the site and three had been included in the Order despite the survey determining that:

(i)         T4 (Copper Beech) a grafted specimen could fail in the future

(ii)        T8 (Cherry) had a cankered stem, some dead / dying limbs, some cracking and recommended for removal

(iii)       T9 exudate from bark, cracking bark on stem / branches poor condition - needs monitoring.

 

The Tree Preservation Order had been initiated as a result of a request from the case officer dealing with the planning application who noted the large garden and large numbers of various types of trees within.  It was considered necessary to ensure that some trees were retained in order that the site could immediately benefit from some established planting.  As the trees within the Order appeared to be comfortably accommodated within the illustrative layout, it was considered feasible and realistic to protect all ten trees, especially since the developer had inferred their retention.

 

Addressing the issues raised in the letter of objection:

 

·                    The map for inclusion with the Order had been redrawn.

·                    Reference tags had not so far been used by this Authority however, the matter would be considered for future surveys, nonetheless the illustrative layout and the Order made clear which trees were subject to the Order in the large domestic garden.

·                    Whilst it would not normally be sufficient reason alone to exclude a tree from Preservation Order on the basis that there was a risk of possible failure in the future, T4 had been removed because of the perceived increased risk of its future failure.  In addition, the tree was very close to a shared boundary with another dwelling which was 11 metres away and this tree had the potential to reach 25 metres.

·                    Regarding T8 (Cherry), this was a mature tree with a substantial main stem which would have a not inconsiderable root system.  Despite the tree’s less than perfect condition it was situated close to the shared boundary with No. 94 Fontygary Road where a pond was located in the rear garden on the other side boundary.  The owner of No. 94 had reported that the pond contained Great Crested Newts - a European Protected Species and was keen to see the trees retained given the significant ground disturbance that would ensue should the Cherry be removed.  (It was also noted that the site as a whole may be subject to special mitigation measures: Rhoose being a “sensitive” area in terms of the numbers of Great Crested Newts concentrated there.)  It was strongly recommended therefore that the Cherry T8 remained included in the Order.

·                    T9 (Horse Chestnut) had been removed from the Order because of its proximity to the Cherry and, given the primary importance of the Cherry (T8).

 

T1 (Ash) and T5 (Beech) were re-visited.  The former had poor form; it was triple stemmed, each stem having splayed away from the vertical as a result of neglect and had heavy end-weighted limbs almost sweeping the ground and exacerbating the deformity, whereas the latter was misshapen and again close to the shared boundary with another dwelling.

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the Tree Preservation Order be confirmed as modified.

 

Reason for decision

 

To accommodate the landowner’s representation, and following further correspondence and re-survey.

 

 

(iii)       Barry Central Area: Prohibition of Access (Alley Gating Phase 9) Proposed Order 2008

 

Approval was sought to create a Traffic Regulation Order to facilitate a further extension of the Alley Gates project.

 

It was proposed to extend the Alley Gates project in order to protect a number of additional lanes within the Casteland Ward whilst also introducing the scheme to Illtyd Ward in the High Street area of Barry.

 

These additional locations had been determined following liaison with the South Wales Police, South Wales Fire Service and internal divisions of the Council.  The locations of the proposed 23 gates were appended to the report.

 

It was proposed to create a Traffic Regulation Order, the effect of which would be to restrict the use of the lanes shown on the plans appended to the report to all but “authorised persons” as determined by the Order.  Authorised persons would be in possession of pass keys, issued and controlled by an appointed officer, and would include members of the emergency services and public utilities.  During the final site inspections relating to Phase 8 of this Scheme it was noted that the exit to the service lane to the rear of Cambian Court (adjacent to No. 1 Wyndham Street), was currently controlled by existing bollards and the waiting restriction.  In the interests of best administrative housekeeping practice, it was recommended that the existing Prohibition of Driving Order - the lane situated alongside No. 1 Wyndham Street, be revoked.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T, subject to the views of the Chief Constable  and other representative organisations of road users, public notice of the Council’s intention to make a Traffic Order under Section 1 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which would be to prohibit access to access to those lanes detailed in Plan Nos. T/08/MRH/01, T/08/MRH/02 and T/08/MRH/03, and also to revoke in its entirety the existing Traffic Regulation Order specified in the appendix to the report.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received, the Order be made.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To ensure that consultations and public notice are given as required by the Local Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) regulations 1996 when making a Traffic Order.

 

(2)       To ensure that Traffic Regulation Orders made obsolete by the Alley Gating Projecting are appropriately revoked / varied.

 

 

(iv)       Penarth: Prohibition of Access (Alley Gating Phase 7) Order 2008

 

Approval was sought to create a Traffic Regulation Order to facilitate the extension of the Alley Gates Project into the Penarth area.

 

It was proposed to extend the Alley Gates Project and to introduce gates into the St. Augustine’s Ward in Penarth.  The work would form part of the Penarth Central Renewal Area initiative and would seek to address key crime and disorder issues such as burglaries, fly tipping and graffiti.

 

The extension of the Alley Gating Scheme had been determined following liaison with the South Wales Police, South Wales Fire Service and internal divisions of the Council.  Appended to the report were Plan Nos. T/08/MRH/P1, T/08/MRH/P2 and T/08/MRH/P3 showing the locations of the 14 proposed gates.

 

It was proposed to create a Traffic Regulation Order, the effect of which would be to restrict the use of the lanes shown on the plans attached to the report to all but “authorised persons” as determined by the Order.  Authorised persons would be in possession of pass keys, issued and controlled by an appropriate officer, and would include members of the emergency services and public utilities.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T, subject to the views of the Chief Constable and other representative organisations of road users, public notice of Council’s intention to make a Traffic Order under Section 1 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which would be to prohibit access to those lanes detailed in Plan Nos. T/08/MRH/P1, T/08/MRH/P2 and T/08/MRH/P3.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received, the Order be made.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To ensure that consultations and public notice are given as required by the Local Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 when making a Traffic Regulation Order.

 

(2)       To enable the project to commence without further referral to Committee unless objections are received.

 

 

(v)        Station Approach Road, Barry Island (Part): Proposed amendment to Waiting Restrictions to create on-street public service vehicles (coaches) parking

 

Approval was sought to vary a Traffic Regulation Order to amend the existing limited waiting in two bays in Station Approach Road, Barry Island and to provide on-street parking for coaches.

 

It had been brought to the attention of the Council’s Traffic Management Team that the existing coach park was being used by travellers.  The Council had to bear the cost of clearing the site after they were evicted and it was intended to prevent the travellers re-entering the site by restricting the height and width of vehicles that could enter the site by barriers.  This would also restrict access for coaches.

 

A large part of the existing car park used by coaches visiting the Island would be lost due to re-development of the site for housing and commercial premises, leaving a small area of land which would continue to be used as an overflow car park.

 

It was proposed that two bays in Station Approach Road, which were previously used as coach parking facilities, be re-introduced to create 6 parking bays for coaches (within lay-bys) located in Station Approach Road, Barry Island on the length of carriageway between its junction with Breaksea Drive and Friars Road.  The bays would only be restricted to coach parking from 1st March until 30th September each year, leaving the bays uncontrolled and available for public use for the remainder of the year, as shown in the schedule and plan attached to the report.

 

The lay-bys were presently used for limited waiting and the Traffic Order covering this restriction would have to be revoked.  A Traffic Order was not required to cover the area with bus bays, as delegated powers had been given in the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002.

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T public notice be given of the Council’s intention to revoke an existing Order and to make a new Order under Sections 81, 82, 83 and 84 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as set out to the appendix to the report.

 

(2)       T H A T in the event of no objections being received, the Order be made.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To comply with the requirements of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

 

(2)       To permit public service vehicles (coaches) to continue to park on Barry Island.

 

 

(v)        Cold Knap, Barry: Proposed amendment to Waiting Restrictions Order: Belated letter of objection received

 

Committee were advised of an objection received to the scheme to reduce in length the current Waiting Restrictions in Cold Knap, Barry.

 

A Planning Committee on 10th October, 2007 had agreed:

 

            (1)       That subject to the views of the Chief Constable and other statutory consultees, Members resolve to give public notice of the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s intention to make a Traffic Regulation Order the effect of which would be as shown at Appendix A to that report.

 

            (2)       That, in the event of no objections being received, the Order be made.

 

In accordance with Council practice, the views of local Members and the Police had been sought prior to Planning Committee, and no adverse comments had been received.

 

Following the Committee’s agreement to the giving of public notice, it was advertised in accordance with Statutory Procedure by way of letters to Statutory Consultees including Chief Officers of the Police, Fire and Ambulance Services, Cardiff Bus, Freight Transport Association, Road Haulage Association and the RAC.  The scheme was also published in the local press and notices placed on lamp columns in the area affected. 

 

As the Head of Visible Services had not received notification that any objections to the proposed order by the due date of 20th November, his officers progressed the formal processes of the Traffic Regulation Order, which was made on 30th November, 2007. 

 

However, an undated and unreferenced letter of objection was received at the Docks Office.  The letter bears an internal “booking in” stamp of 20th November and after being passed on in the internal mail system, reached the Head of Visible Services after the due date for receipt of objections i.e. 20th November.  However, in the meantime officers had completed the administrative processes on the assumption that no objections had been received and the Order was legally sealed on 30th November. 

 

Because of receipt of this letter of objection, the works to make the changes to the existing lines and signs had not yet been undertaken pending the outcome of the matters referred to in the report. 

 

The objector, in summary, stated “my objections to these proposals are that they will cause traffic chaos given the very narrow width of some of the Cold Knap roads and streets.  Your officers do not have to suffer the heavy traffic that still visits the Knap each summer.  Contrary to their belief the closure of the Knap Lido has not reduced the number of cars visiting the area.  Both local car parks at the sea front and Bron y More are often full at summer weekends.”

 

“The proposal is based on the views of a few residents who wish to have their friends park their cars in the road when visiting Cold Knap in the summer.  Your staff have not made any efforts to discover whether this proposal has the support of the population at large in Cold Knap.  I can assure that it does not.  I have consulted my neighbours who are against this proposal.”

 

“I must draw your attention to the fact that we still have a bus service through the Knap that often has trouble with bad parking.”

 

Members will recall that the scheme would remove long sections of double yellow lines from one side of the carriageway whilst retaining protection at junctions and other relevant sections of highway.  Traffic flow was generally not heavy and it was not thought that the flow of traffic travelling along the roads would be affected by the reduced waiting restrictions.

 

Local Members who were consulted early on this scheme had made no comments regarding the reported lack of support from the residents of the area and no other letters of objection had been received on this matter.

 

The few affected bus stops within the area would be monitored and would be protected where necessary, by Bus Stop Protection Orders.

 

Committee considered the contents of the letter. 

 

RESOLVED -

 

(1)       T H A T the letter be accepted as a valid objection.

 

(2)       T H A T consideration of the report be deferred pending a site inspection.


 

Reason for decision

 

To allow an inspection of the area.

 

715     PLANNING APPLICATIONS -

 

Having considered the following applications for planning permission and, where necessary, the observations of interested parties, it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T in pursuance of powers delegated to the Committee, the following applications be decided as indicated and any other necessary action taken:

REFUSED     (written representations)

 

1.         Notwithstanding the allocation of the site under Policies HOUS1 [3] – Residential Allocations, EMP1 [11] – Land for Employment Uses and Policy REC 11 – Informal Open space and Country Parks within the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 – 2011, it is considered that the development of the site would represent an unacceptable and inappropriate form of development for the following reasons:

 

i.          The majority of the application site has been notified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, forming one of a group of woodland blocks known as “Barry Woodlands”, and the development would result in irreversible damage to the special interest of the site.

ii.         Both the archive data and ecological data provided in supplementary surveys, provide strong corroborative evidence that the entire woodland at Pencoedtre is Ancient and that its inclusion in the Glamorgan Inventory of Ancient Woodland is upheld.  Accordingly the proposed development would result in irreversible impact and damage to the ancient woodland, contrary to advice in Planning Policy Wales (2002).

iii.        The Joint Residential Land Availability Study (May 2007) shows that the Local Planning Authority has a readily identifiable housing land supply of 7.8 years.  Moreover in the allocation of the site under Policy HOUS 1 [3] – Residential Allocations, the Council did not take this allocation into account in its housing figures and therefore there is no overriding need for development on the site, nor would the loss of the site adversely impact on the residential land supply with the plan period.

iv.        There is considered to be no overriding need for employment development on this site, taking account of the findings of the Employment Land Study Report (October 2007), which considers that, based on the take up rate, there is no need to allocate more land – aside from replacing any allocations ‘lost’, whilst acknowledging the likely deletion of the allocation of the site under EMP 1 [11] – Land for Employment Uses.

v.         Pencoedtre Wood is designated as a candidate Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (cSINC), cSINC ST SW/17, Pencoedtre Wood, and it is considered that there is no overriding need for the proposed development which would clearly outweigh the local importance of the site

vi.        There is a lack of clarity in the survey work undertaken on the presence or otherwise of roosting bat sites within the woodland, and further information is required to establish whether or not the tests of derogation can be met as required by Planning Policy Wales (March 2002).

vii.       Insufficient information has been submitted to enable the Local Planning Authority to adequately assess the highway impact of the proposal.

viii.      Notwithstanding the various designations of the site, including its designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and its status as ancient woodland, the proposal would result in the loss of a large area of woodland, in a highly prominent and important gateway location.

 

Taking account of each of the above, it is concluded that the proposed development would be contrary to the Policies ENV11 – Protection of Landscape Features; EMP2 – New Businesses and Industrial Development; ENV14 - National sites of Nature Conservation Importance, ENV15 - Local Sites of Nature Conservation Significance; ENV16 – Protected Species, ENV27 – Design of New Developments; HOUS8 – Residential Development criteria  contained within the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 – 2011, as well as Welsh Assembly Government policy as guidance set out in Planning Policy Wales (March 2002).

Stationing of a temporary dwelling for three years to service national hunt training yard.

 

REFUSED     (written representations)

 

1.         The application proposes a temporary dwelling located in the open countryside associated with a proposed equestrian business.  The proposed dwelling cannot be justified for agricultural or forestry purposes. Whilst it is acknowledged that there is an apparent move towards allowing essential dwellings for other rural enterprises in the open countryside, it has not been sufficiently demonstrated that the enterprise will attract the maximum number of horses it could house in the first year.  Neither have the alternative options to an on-site dwelling house been sufficiently explored.  As such the proposed temporary dwelling is not justified and the proposal is contrary to Policies HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside and HOUS5 - Agricultural or Forestry Dwellings of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and TAN6 - Agricultural and Rural Development.

Single log cabin (Holiday chalet) and associated works.

 

REFUSED     (written representations)

 

1.         By virtue of its scale, form, siting and prominence within the wider rural context, it is considered that the proposed chalet and associated curtilage would amount to a visually intrusive form of development, which adversely affects the rural character and visual amenities of the Lower Thaw Valley Special Landscape Area.  Accordingly, it is considered that the proposal is contrary to Policies ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas, ENV27 - Design of New Developments and TOUR4 - Caravan, Chalet and Tent Sites, of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.

 

2.         The proposed vehicular access would make provision for insufficient vision splays to serve the development, without the unacceptable removal of substantial lengths of hedgerow. Accordingly, the proposed access would be detrimental to the safety and free flow of traffic, contrary to the aims of Policies ENV27 - Design of New Developments and TOUR4 - Caravan, Chalet and Tent Sites, of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011.
