Change of use of both ground and first floor to pet shop and veterinarian business, plus two storey extensions to side and rear and associated alterations.

 

It was announced that the proposals for the veterinarian business had been withdrawn, and it was now intended to be a 'pop-up' shop.  Councillor Mrs. Thomas advised that Cowbridge and Llanblethian Town Council had considered the original application and had expressed the view that the proposed windows were not in keeping with the Conservation Area.  The Town Council had also been concerned about the prospect of a vet being located so near to an eating place and had expressed reservations about the proposed flat room extension in that it was felt to be out of keeping with the Conservation Area. 

 

Cowbridge with Llanblethian Town Council was in the process of being re-consulted on the amended application but had not commented yet.  Councillor Mrs. Thomas ventured that the Town Council may be more sympathetic to the amended application but felt that she was in no position to comment.

534     GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS (DDS) –

 

(i)         Enforcement Action – Building known as The Flat, 71 Eastgate, Cowbridge: Unauthorised works to a Listed Building (Removal of Ceilings)

 

Authorisation was sought for the service of a Listed Building Enforcement Notice in respect of the unauthorised removal of historic lath and plaster ceilings and replacement with modern plaster board, taped and gypsum skimmed ceilings at first floor level of a Grade II Listed Building without the benefit of Listed Building Consent at 71 Eastgate, Cowbridge. 

 

The Council’s Conservation and Design Officer brought to the Enforcement Section’s attention that a number of unauthorised works were being undertaken to the flat located above No. 71 Eastgate, Cowbridge.  As a result of this, an Enforcement Officer inspected the property where it was noted that as part of the ongoing refurbishment works to the first floor flat, historic lath and plaster ceilings serving the rear rooms had been totally removed.  These had been replaced by modern plaster boarding, finished in a skim of gypsum and painted.  Inset lights were also in the process of being fitted in one of the ceilings. 

 

The Enforcement Officer advised the contractors that, being part of the historic built fabric of the building, the works of removing the ceilings required a specific grant of Listed Building Consent.  They were also advised to cease all further works, albeit these were already near completion.

 

The Conservation and Design Officer wrote to the offender’s agent stating that as the works observed far outreached the scope of what had been previously discussed as a possible like-for-like and sensitive repair or superficial redecoration, she was advised that Listed Building Consent was required.  A letter had also been sent to the offender’s agent advising that all works should cease on site and the submission of a Listed Building Consent application should be made to the Council within 14 days from the date of that letter.  The letter also advised that failure to submit a Listed Building Consent application would result in the Council pursuing further action in the form of a prosecution.

 

As a result, an application for Listed Building Consent for the replacement of lath and plaster ceilings with plasterboard and gypsum skim to existing internal walls and tiling of windows (2013/00802/LBC) was submitted on 21st August 2013 and refused Listed Building Consent on 26th September 2013 for the following reason:

 

1.         Having regard to national and local policy for the preservation of the character of a listed building, the works proposed within the application constitute inappropriate and unnecessary destruction of historic fabric that significantly detracts from the rare example of overall character.  It is therefore unacceptable in terms of the impact on the Grade II Listed Building. 

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)       T H A T the Head of Legal Services be authorised to serve a Listed Building Enforcement Notice under Section 38 of the Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 to require:

 

(i)         Permanently remove the modern plasterboard, taped and gypsum skimmed ceilings together with their fixings and all light fittings.

(ii)        Reinstate the ceilings to the same height as the previous historic ceilings and in a traditional form that is indicative of those removed to the following specification:

             (i)            the use of Sawn Larch laths, fitted at circa 10-15mm intervals with stainless steel nail fixings.  Lath should be staggered every 900mm in length, to avoid a single plane of weakness throughout the ceiling.  Lath should be set in from external walls at circa 10mm to avoid direct moisture transfer.

             (ii)          The whole to be covered with coarse, fat-lime putty comprising well graded fine sand with horse hair binder.

             (iii)         The whole to then be finished in fat lime putty with a well graded fine sand top coat of 3mm in depth.

             (iv)         Paint and finish with a traditional lime wash or clay paint only.

 

(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)  The reason for the above resolutions it to ensure the character of the Grade II Listed Building is preserved by reinstating the historic ceilings that have been removed.
