602     ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) –

 

(i)         Land Adjacent to The Limes, Cowbridge: Regarding the Site Clearance and Erection of Hoarding at a Parcel of Land Adjacent to The Limes, Cowbridge

 

A report was received by the Local Planning Authority regarding the site clearance and erection of hoarding at a parcel of land adjacent to The Limes, Cowbridge.  The Limes is located in a residential part of the town centre.  The site is in a prominent and slightly elevated position fronting The Limes, near its junction with Eastgate.  The site is located in the Cowbridge with Llanblethian Conservation Area.

 

The site was previously an overgrown vacant piece of land screened by foliage from the street scene.  The site is bound by two storey dwellings on either side of The Limes frontage, and is directly opposite Nos. 3 and 4, The Limes.  Nos. 3 and 4 The Limes directly front the highway.

 

An initial site inspection noted that the site had been cleared of vegetation, waste materials that had been fly tipped or blown onto the site; following this the site had also been levelled and vacated.  The extent of the works did not constitute development and therefore did not require the benefit of planning permission.

 

A means of enclosure in the form of hoarding had been erected to enclose the site.  The hoarding measured approximately two metres in height and approximately 34 metres in length.  The erection of a means of enclosure was considered to be development and therefore required planning permission.  Although there was provision under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order, this provision stipulated that enclosures adjacent to a highway could only be a 'permitted development’ if the height did not exceed one metre.  As the enclosure exceeded that height, the works did not constitute permitted development.

 

The owner of the property had been advised that planning permission was required and of the acceptability of the works.  Advice had been given on what means of enclosure would not require the benefit of planning permission, under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order.  In spite of the request for the removal of the hoarding in favour of more acceptable alternatives, no action had been undertaken.  As no voluntary resolution had been achieved, the only course of action open was through formal action.

 

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)         Permanently remove from the Land the means of enclosure comprising of green netting and wooden hoarding erected in the approximate location marked green on the Plan.

 

(ii)        Permanently remove any resultant waste from the above operation from the Land.

 

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

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1)       In view of the scale, design and materials in construction of the enclosure in this location, the development is considered unacceptable in terms of its impact on the character and appearance of the street scene and wider conservation area.  The means of enclosure is considered unacceptable development that fails to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the Cowbridge Conservation Area.  As such, the development is considered to conflict with Policies: ENV17 – Protection of the Built and Historic Environment; ENV20 – Development in Conservation Areas; and ENV27 – Design of New Developments, of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 – 2011, as well as the principles of the Cowbridge with Llanblethian Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (2010) adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance for development control purposes.
