            COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE LEVY REGULATIONS 2010 – CONSULTATION ON PROPOSED AMENDMENTS (REF) –

 

Approval was sought from Cabinet on the 20th May for the consultation response attached at Appendix A to the report, and Cabinet were informed of the proposed amendments to the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. 

 

Currently, the Council had entered into legal agreements with developers under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 to seek contributions from developers to provide facilities such as transport, open space and education to serve new developments.  On 6th April 2010, the Community Infrastructure Regulations 2010 came into force, which changed the way in which planning obligations could be sought through Section 106 Agreements, meaning these could now in part be replaced with the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).  CIL was a new charging system that could be applied to most forms of development to fund infrastructure improvements that supported the development of the authority area in accordance with the Local Development Plan (LDP). 

 

On 21st February 2011, Cabinet resolved to commence work on preparing a CIL for the Vale of Glamorgan.  This work was undertaken in tandem with the preparation of the LDP. 

 

The current Department for Communities and Local Government consultation sought views on further regulatory reforms to the CIL.  Comments on the proposals were required by 28th May 2013.  The consultation covered a range of amendments to the regulations related particularly to rate setting and the operation of the levy in practice.

 

These included:

 

-           Requiring a charging authority to demonstrate that it has struck an appropriate balance between the desirability of funding infrastructure from the levy and the potential effects of the levy on economic viability of development across its area (see question 1);

-           Amending the provisions on setting differential rates (see question 2);

-           Extending the consultation period on the draft charging schedule (see question 3);

-           The role of the list of infrastructure and procedures for reviewing it (see questions 4 and 5);

-           Extending the transition period for further limitations on the use of pooled planning obligations from April 2014 to April 2015 to allow charging authorities more time to take into account the reforms we have already introduced and those proposed in this consultation (see question 6);

-           Amending the relationship between the levy and section 278 agreements (see question 7);

-           Allowing charging authorities the choice to accept payments in kind through provision of both land and infrastructure either on-site or off-site for the whole or part of the levy payable on a development (see questions 8 to 10);

-           Extending the provisions for phasing of levy payments to all types of planning permission to deal fairly with more complex developments (see questions 11 to 14);

-           Allowing existing floorspace to be credited against the levy liability provided the use has not been abandoned (see question 15);

-           Ensuring multiple liability provisions work effectively so that new applications that bring forward changes but do not increase floorspace on permitted, but not completed, schemes will not trigger an additional liability (see question 16);

-           Giving charging authorities the discretion to apply social housing relief to discounted market sales in their areas and ensuring that ancillary and communal areas are reflected (see questions 17 to 19);

-           Making it easier to apply exceptional circumstances relief provisions (see question 20);

-           Introducing relief from the levy for self-build homes (see questions 21 and 22);

-           Modifying the appeals procedures and allowing appeals in certain cases after development has commenced (see questions 23 and 24);

-           Introducing transitional measures so that changes related to the charge setting process should not apply to authorities who have already published a draft charging schedule (question 25).

 

The Council was still in the early stages of preparing a CIL for the Vale of Glamorgan and many of the changes did not have significant or immediate implications for the Council, but would need to be complied with in the future adoption and implementation of CIL if they were carried forward into final amended regulations.

 

Therefore, for the Council, the key amendment proposed was to extend the transition period for further limitations on the use of pooled planning obligations from April 2014 to April 2015 to allow charging authorities more time to take into account the shift from Section 106 agreements towards CIL for larger infrastructure projects.

 

Cabinet had welcomed this amendment as there was no prospect of the Council adopting CIL before April 2014 as it was reliant on the prior adoption of the LDP for the area.  However, the consultation response at Appendix A to the report called for a further delay to take account of situations such as ours where an approved Development Plan was not in place for the area.

 

Cabinet had resolved –

 

(1)       That the consultation response attached at Appendix A to the report be approved.

 

(2)       That the report be referred to Planning Committee for information.

 

Having considered the decision of Cabinet, Planning Committee

            ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) –

 

(i)         Land and Buildings and Tyn-y-Waun Farm, Newton, Cowbridge

 

This matter had been previously considered by the Planning Committee in December 2009 when Committee were informed of the unauthorised use of the land at Tyn-y-Waun Farm, Newton, Cowbridge for the importation, processing, depositing and exportation of waste and the carrying out of engineering works on the land in order to create a lake.

 

At the December 2009 meeting, authorisation was granted to serve an Enforcement Notice and a Stop Notice in respect of the unauthorised activity.  Part 5 of the Enforcement Notice contained the following requirements:

 

(i)            Permanently cease the excavation of the land for the purpose of creating a lake or lagoon.

(ii)           Permanently cease the works to construct all enclosing banks, bunds and other related mounds.

(iii)          Permanently cease the use of the land for the processing, stockpiling and exportation off-site of all soils, sub-soils, stone and gravel material resulting from the excavation of the land to create a lake or lagoon.

(iv)          Backfill all areas of excavation undertaken for the purposes of creating the lake or lagoon, by utilising the on-site soil, sub-soil, stone and gravel material only that is currently either stockpiled on the site or forms the banks and bunds that enclose the lake / lagoon.

(v)           Re-grade the backfilled areas back to the approximately levels that existed prior to any works of excavation having been undertaken and seed the land so as to return it to grass.

(vi)          Permanently cease the use of the land as a waste transfer station by ceasing the importation, processing, stockpiling, depositing and exportation of all forms of various wastes and materials that include soils, sub-soils, spoils, stone, concrete, brick, hardcore, rubble, woods, green wastes and miscellaneous other wastes and materials.

 

Following the service of the Notice, the activity on the site eventually ceased and as such, requirements (i), (ii), (iii) and (vi) of the Notice were being complied with, save for the remaining stockpiles of material resulting from the last of the importation and processing activity on the site.  This left requirements (iv) and (v) outstanding. 

 

In July 2010, the Council were notified that the majority of the land subject of the Enforcement Notice had been repossessed by the mortgage company.  It was following this that the Environment Agency (now Natural Resources Wales)  expressed concern about the stockpiled material on the land the possible risk of some contamination being present in the material given its intended use was to backfill the lake excavation as required by the Enforcement Notice.  As a result, the mortgage company commissioned Environ UK Ltd to undertake an analysis of the stockpiled material.  The result of the analysis showed that approximately 20% of the stockpiled material was contaminated (for example, woods, plastics, metals, etc. but not any toxins or chemicals).  Accordingly, the results of this analysis had implications for requirement (iv) of the Enforcement Notice in that it required the use of material now known to contain contaminants to backfill the excavated lakes.

 

Following the auction of the land in question, the current owner of the land took possession in January 2012 in full knowledge of the Enforcement Notice and his responsibility to comply with the outstanding requirements of the Notice.  The new owner subsequently commissioned a restoration scheme as a proposed alternative to the outstanding requirements of the Notice. 

 

The new owner had confirmed that he was seeking to resolve the outstanding matters on the site and restore the land in order to comply with the Enforcement Notice and to resume farming activities on the land.

 

The proposed alternative restoration scheme had been submitted in plan form that was accompanied by a method statement.  The plan showed the location of the remaining individual stockpiles on the site, including photographs and the location and area of the unauthorised lake excavation. 

 

The outstanding requirements of the Enforcement Notice required the use of the stockpiled material to backfill the excavated lake, the levelling of the land and the return of the land to grass.  As the stockpiled material to be used to backfill the lake had been found to contain contaminants, it was necessary to screen this material so as to remove the contaminants before the uncontaminated material could be used to backfill the excavated area.

 

The screening of the material (i.e. the processing of the stockpiles) and the necessary removal from the land of the resultant contaminants would, of course, breach requirement (iii) of the Enforcement Notice.  It was therefore necessary to relax this requirement so as to allow for the screening of the remaining stockpiles to remove contaminants. 

 

In addition to the above, it was estimated that there would be insufficient clean material following the screening of the stockpiles to backfill the entirety of the excavated lake area.  Accordingly, it was proposed to backfill the majority of the excavated area, but to leave a small excavated area creating a smaller pond.  The submitted plans showed a remaining excavated area (the proposed pond) of 0.45 hectares following the backfilling of the majoring of the unauthorised excavations with screened, clean material.  In order to permit the retention of a smaller area of excavation it would be necessary to amend and relax requirement (iv) of the Enforcement Notice.

 

As a final proposal, the scheme submitted proposed the construction of temporary access tracks across the site, described on the submitted plan as “haul roads”.  Approximately 560 metres of temporary track were proposed and these were to link to the existing tracks across the site.  In order to permit the construction of these temporary tracks and to ensure that these were removed following the completion of the restoration works, part 5 of the Enforcement Notice must be amended with the additional of further requirements relating to the construction and then ultimate removal of the temporary haul roads.

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)       TH A T the Head of Legal Services be authorised to amend part 5 of the Enforcement Notice issued and served under Section 172 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) on 16th December 2009 as follows:

 

1.             The removal of requirements (i) and (ii).

2.             The amendment of requirement (iii) so as to allow for the processing of the existing stockpiles on the site and the removal of the resultant contaminated material from the land, as set out in the plan and method statement submitted to the Council on 6th December 2012.

3.             The amendment and relaxation of requirement (iv) in order to permit the retention of a smaller area of excavation (the proposed pond) as set out in the plan and method statement submitted to the Council on 6th December 2012.

4.             The addition to part 5 of the Notice of further requirements to allow for the construction of temporary haul roads and then removal of those haul roads following the completion of the restoration works as set out in the plan and method statement submitted to the Council on 6th December 2012.

 

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

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  The proposed restoration scheme for the land at Tyn y Waun Farm, submitted to the Council on 6th December 2012, was considered to be acceptable and reasonably necessary in order to ensure the resumption of farming activities on the land.  As such, the proposed restoration scheme was not considered to conflict with policies ENV1 Development in the Countryside, ENV4 – Special Landscape Areas, ENV7 – Water Resources, ENV10 –   Conservation of the Countryside, ENV11 – Protection of Landscape Features, EMP7 – Farm Diversification, EMP8 – Agricultural Enterprise and Associated Development, WAST1 – Provision of Waste Management Facilities, WAST2 – Criterion for Assessing Waste Management Facilities, WAST4 – Waste Disposal on Agricultural Land, Strategic Policy 13 Waste Management of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, as well as guidance contained within Technical Advice Note 6: Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities and Planning Policy Wales (November 2012).  Accordingly, the relaxation and addition of certain requirements of part 5 of the extant Enforcement Notice issued on 16th December 2009, which are necessary to permit the proposed restoration scheme, are considered to be appropriate in this case.

 

 

(ii)        Land and Buildings at the Kiosk, Stanwell Road, Penarth

 

Committee received a report which related to alterations undertaken to the building known as The Kiosk on Stanwell Road.  The building was a relatively modest one in scale, located adjacent to the Royal Buildings and bound by the footpath adjacent to the railway line leading to Penarth railway station. 

 

It had been noted that works to the external appearance of the building were being undertaken and it became clear hat these works did not amount to the implementation of an extant planning permission on the site.  The works undertaken related to the additional painted softwood horizontal cladding. The cladding covered the windows that previously existed in the front, side and rear elevation of the property.  A canopy had also been added to the front elevation. 

 

The alterations materially altered the external appearance of the building, and would consequently constitute development requiring the benefit of planning permission.  The development did not benefit from planning permission, and as such, was unauthorised.

 

The owner of the building had been contacted on several occasions but had failed to respond to any previous correspondence.  Officers had sought to resolve the matter on a voluntary basis but to no avail and accordingly the only course of action open to the Local Planning Authority was formal action in the form of an Enforcement Notice. 

 

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 removal of the cladding and canopy additions and restoration of the building to its former condition.

 

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

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  The material alteration of the property does not reflect the design, character and appearance of the locality and consequently is considered to have demonstrable and detrimental impact on the character of the street scene and wider conservation area.  The alterations are considered to erode the established character of the conservation area, contrary to the principles of Policies ENV17 – Protection of the Building and Historic Environment; ENV20 – Development in Conservation Areas, and ENV27 – Design of New Development of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, as well as the principles and guidance set out in the Adopted Penarth Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan.

 

 

(iii)       Land and Buildings at Land Adjacent to The Beeches, St. Nicholas

 

Committee received a report which related to site clearance, remediation and laying of a bound bitumen material on land adjacent to The Beeches, St. Nicholas.

 

Following an initial site inspection, it had been noted that the land had been cleared of all vegetation that previously existed on the land and a bound bitumen material had been laid and now covered the land.  The bound material covered an area of approximately 1,800m².  The land was formally overgrown agricultural land and had the characteristics of a paddock. 

 

The works as carried out were considered to amount to an engineering operation as defined by Section 55 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and as such required the benefit of planning permission.  As no such permission had been granted, nor was there any provision under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 for the works, the operation had been carried out in breach of planning control.

 

The owner of the land had been contacted on two separate occasions and no response had been forthcoming.  The owner’s lack of engagement with the Local Planning Authority had failed to result in a voluntary resolution to the matter, and as such formal action was required to expedite a resolution.

 

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 removal of the bound bitumen material;

            (ii)        The restoration of the land to its former condition.

 

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

 

(3)       T H A T the Council's Environmental Health Office and Ecology Officer should be notified that Japanese Knotweed may be present on site and any disposal of the material will require the involvement of Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  The operational development consisting of the laying of bound bitumen material on the land is considered to be an unjustified form of development in the location that had a detrimental effect on the appearance and character of the open countryside contrary to Policies EVN1, ENV10 and ENV27 of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales (February 2011) and Technical Advice Note 6 (July 2010) on Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.

 

(3)       In regard to the possible existence of Japanese Knotweed.

 

 

(iv)       Land and Buildings at The Bowers, Coldbrook Road West, Barry

 

A complaint had been received by the Local Planning Authority regarding the erection of a new CCTV camera on the side elevation of The Bowers, Coldbrook Road West, Barry facing No. 11 Coldbrook Road West.

 

An investigation had previously been undertaken with regard to the CCTV cameras on the property in August 2011.  It was noted at that time that there were four cameras in total at the property, two on the side elevation of the main gable of the dwelling house facing No. 11 Coldbrook Road West, and one close to the rear elevation of the dwelling.  There was also a camera on the side elevation of the detached annex building. 

 

The erection of CCTV cameras on a building was considered to be development.  There were certain permitted development rights granted under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 for the erection of CCTV Cameras.  However, in view of the number of cameras on the property, and their location, all of the cameras were considered to be development that required the benefit of planning permission.  The owner of the property was contacted regarding this mater, and following further investigation, it was established that the cameras had been erected on the property more than four years prior to the investigation.  As such, the cameras were immune from enforcement action and the case was closed.

 

Following the receipt of the most recent complaint, the site was inspected again and it was noted that one of the cameras on the main side elevation of the property, facing No. 11 Coldbrook Road West, had been removed and replaced with a larger camera.  The position of the camera was also slightly higher than that previously observed and was close to the ridge and chimney of the house.

 

Again, in view of the location of the camera and its proximity to the existing cameras on the property, the new camera was not considered to benefit from the permitted development rights granted under the 1995 Order.  Accordingly the new camera required the benefit of planning permission and as no such permission had been granted, the camera had been erected in breach of planning control.

 

The owner of the property had been advised of the breach of planning control and given a period of time to either remove the camera or submit an application for planning permission in an attempt to retain the camera.  The camera is still, however, in situ following the expiry of this period and an application has not 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 removal of the new CCTV camera and supporting brackets from the side elevation of the dwelling.

 

(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 location of the camera and its direction of view, this development is considered to impact to an unacceptable degree on the privacy and, therefore, the amenities of the occupiers of the adjoining property.  As such, the camera is considered to conflict with criteria (ii) and (iv) of Policy ENV27 – Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, as well as the residential privacy and amenity principles set out in the Council’s adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards.

 

 

(v)        Land and Buildings at Cambrian Residential Park, off Brooklands Terrace, Culverhouse Cross

 

DEFERRED  - for site visit.

 

 

(vi)       Enforcement – Update and Progress

 

Committee received a year end report which advised of the Enforcement Team’s performance over the financial year April 2012 to March 2013.

 

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

 

Reason for decision

 

Having regard to the contents of the report.

 

 

            PLANNING APPLICATIONS (DDS) –

 

Having considered the applications for planning permission, and where necessary to observations of interested parties,

 

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

The Grove, Corntown, Bridgend

 

Proposal to construct new 4 bedroom house

 

REFUSED                 (Written representations)

 

1.         The proposal represents a cramped, over development of the site, which detracts from the setting of nearby properties and the wider area, and creates the impression of the perceived overlooking of the front of the neighbouring dwelling by virtue of the proposals orientation and siting.  Furthermore, the cramped and contrived nature of the development results in an unsuitable and unsatisfactory provision of amenity space for the proposed dwelling which is completely overlooked by the existing property to the rear, and unsatisfactory access arrangements.  As such, the infilling of the side garden of The Grove would be considered an unsuitable form of infill development.  As such the proposals are considered contrary to Policies ENV27 - Design of New Developments; HOUS2 - Additional Residential Development; HOUS8 - Residential Development Criteria; HOUS11 - Residential Privacy and Space; TRAN10 - Parking, of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards; the Council's Supplementary Planning Guidance on Amenity Standards; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5, 2012) and TAN12 - Design.
