(f)         Highways Act 1980 S119 Proposed Public Path Diversion Order Footpath No. 5 Lavernock (DDS) – 

 

The Sub-Committee received an application made by the Vale of Glamorgan Council to divert part of the above footpath. 

 

Public Footpath No. 5 commenced on Fort Road and proceeded south-westwards across fields and through the Bay Caravan Park to terminate on St. Mary’s Well Bay Road.  The footpath currently traverses the Caravan Park and was obstructed by static caravans and security fencing.

 

It was also noted that Public Footpath No. 1 Lavernock ran parallel to Public Footpath No. 5 through Lavernock Nature Reserve and along the cliff top to the south of Bay Caravan Park.  Footpath No. 1 provided the only other east-west coastal link in the area.  This link had, however, been lost due to erosion.  Erosion resulting in the physical loss of a public footpath has the effect of legally extinguishing the portion of path affected.  Whilst Public Footpath No. 1 previously provided an accessible route from east to west it was not the subject of this application.

 

Through negotiation with the adjacent landowners it had been possible to create a new path running parallel to the eastern boundary of the caravan park, which terminated on the proposed diversion route of Public Footpath No. 5, FP5 would continue on to St. Mary’s Well Bay Road.

 

The proposal provided an opportunity to conclude the provision of a vital missing link in the Vale of Glamorgan’s section of the Wales Coast Path. 

 

The effect of the diversion of Footpath No. 5 would be to move the footpath from the alignment A-B-C-D (bold line) to A-E-F (dashed line) as shown on the order map attached to the report. 

 

An order map and schedule were included describing the changes in greater detail.

 

Case Law states that before making a decision on the Order it is reasonable to consider both tests for making the Order and for confirming the Order.  Even if all tests are met, the Council may exercise its discretion to make the order. 

 

Before making a Diversion Order it must appear to the Council that it is expedient to divert the path in the interests either of the public or of the owner, lessee or occupier of the land crossed by the path.

 

The Authority must also be satisfied that the Diversion Order did not alter any point of termination of the path, other than to another point on the same path, or another highway connected with it, and which was substantially as convenient to the public. 

 

Before confirming an Order, the Council, or the Welsh Government, if the Order is opposed, must be satisfied that:

 

(a)          The diversion is expedient in the interests of the person(s) stated in the Order,

(b)          The path will not be substantially less convenient to the public as a consequence of the diversion,

(c)          It is expedient to confirm the Order having regard to the effect it will have on public enjoyment of the path as a whole, on other land served by the existing path and on land affected by any proposed new path, taking into account the provision for compensation.

 

Convenience should be interpreted as meaning ease of use, whereas enjoyment can take into account other factors such as the views to be enjoyed from the path or way. 

 

Following consultation on the proposal, one objection was received from Friends of the Earth.

 

RESOLVED – T H A T the Council, being the relevant highway authority for the affected footpath, proceed with making an Order to divert part of Footpath No. 5 Lavernock as described in the order plan and schedule attached to the report.

 

Reasons for decision

 

(1)          Diversion of Footpath No. 5 was in the interest of the landowners.  The existing definitive alignment runs across an open field that was cultivated on a seasonal basis and then through the Bay Caravan Park to terminate on St. Mary’s Well Bay Road.

 

(2)          The diversion of the path from the centre of the field to the field boundary would benefit farming practice by removing the need to reinstate a route through crops and instead allow path users to follow the headland.  The removal of the path from the caravan park would provide greater flexibility in the siting of static caravans in addition to resolving current obstructions.

 

(3)          The application was made as part of the Coastal Access Improvement Programme and follows from negotiations between the Vale of Glamorgan Council and landowners to provide a usable route able to comprise the Wales Coast Path.

 

(4)          The path diversion retained connections to the same highways.  The proposed alternative route was no less convenient to the public.

 

Footnote

 

Prior to the commencement of formal business, discussions took place as to whether the Planning Sub-Committee (Public Rights of Way) should, in future, receive update reports in relation to any Orders made by the Sub-Committee which were subsequently challenged.  Consensus emerged that this course of action would be followed in future.

714     ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) –

 

(i)           Land at The Lawns, Cwrt Yr Ala Road, Michaelston le Pit (Cardiff)

 

A report was received by the Local Planning Authority relating to a parcel of land at The Lawns, Cwrt Yr Ala Road, Michaelston le Pit (Cardiff).  The parcel of land is located south east of Ely, Cardiff and north of Michaelston le Pit, the western side of the valley is dense woodland that backs onto Wenvoe Quarry and the eastern side of the valley forms the Cwrt Yr Ala Special Landscape Area. The site is a previously underdeveloped parcel of agricultural land.  The main issue at the site was that the land had been parcelled off and sold to various unconnected parties, with differing aspirations for the use of the land.  As a result of this, the land is no longer used for a single agricultural purpose, which had been the production of barley.

 

At present the land parcels did not represent meaningful agricultural holding for agricultural purposes; which is compounded by the alleged sales tactics of the original landowner who advised the prospective buyers that planning permission was not required for the development of the land, as declared during the recent planning appeal hearing by the Appellant. 

 

Many of the issues and considerations are the same for the parcels of land, therefore it was considered appropriate to group these matters together as a single item for presentation to Members.  There are also additional land parcels at the site which are under ongoing investigation.  The matters subject to this report had been considered and it had been determined that no further informal action and negotiation by Officers would render an acceptable result at the land.

 

Issues relating to specific land parcels were identified as such and issues relating to all sites were reported as one.  The map attached as an appendix sought to provide an illustrative description of the land referred to in the report.  The Cwrt Yr Ala Special Landscape was shown in the attached plan.

 

This development issue had previously been reported to Members and enforcement action had been pursued previously at one parcel of land.  A recent appeal decision upheld the refusal of planning permission.  The Inspector cited 'material harm' to the appearance of the area as one reason to dismiss the appeal and also concluded that the development was unjustified from an agricultural perspective and stated that it is clear the cumulative damage that would be caused to the special landscape area by such (repeated) development would be wholly unacceptable. 

 

An Enforcement Notice was served in respect of one parcel of land in line with the recommendation put forward to the Committee at the time.  The landowner did not appeal that Notice, but submitted an alternative scheme to the Local Planning Authority to overcome the issues highlighted in the serving of the Notice.  That application was refused and an appeal was subsequently submitted.  That appeal was dismissed by the Inspector, the decision notice was attached as an appendix to the report. 

 

Officers continued to seek compliance with the Notice to secure the removal of the building and access track.  To this end, this matter had been reported to the Magistrates Court and a prosecution was being sought for failure to comply with the requirements of the Enforcement Notice. 

 

Details of the Breach

 

Site 1: Roundhouse Partnership ('the Group)

 

Following a site inspection it was noted that a series of drainage channels and ponds / lagoons had been created to be used for irrigation purposes.  The largest of the three ponds measured 7.5m x 5.9m in width and was approximately 1m in depth.  The smallest was 6.4m x 6.5m, again with a depth of 1m.  Two of the ponds were located 8m to 10m from the central access track, with the third some 60m into the field.

 

The works were considered to amount to development as defined by Section 55 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) ('the Act') as they constituted an engineering operation.  The site did not benefit from 'permitted development' rights as defined by the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development ) Order, as the works did not relate to an agricultural holding over 5 hectares in size, therefore the works required planning permission.  As retrospective consent had been refused for the works, they were unauthorised and subject to enforcement action.

 

Site 2: Mr. L. Fernandes

 

An outbuilding had been partially constructed on a concrete plinth and an access track leading to the building had also been constructed.  In recent weeks 8 cattle had been brought onto the land and the building was used as a cattle shed and storage. The building was constructed of timber material, with a flat roof, a height of approximately 3m and a footprint of 70m2.  The access track was made of crushed aggregate and ran approximately 155m into the land parcel.

 

The works are considered to be development as defined by Section 55 of the Act as they constituted building operations.  The site did not benefit from any 'permitted developmentârights under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order, as the works did not relate to an agricultural holding over 5 hectares in size.  Therefore the works required planning permission, as no such permission had been granted the works were unauthorised.

 

Site 3: Mr. N. Clark

 

An initial site visit noted that domestic sheds, outbuildings, a greenhouse, a residential caravan, chicken coops and makeshift pig arks had been sited on the land.  A recent site visit revealed that additional buildings, including shelter type construction, had been erected, which constituted development.

 

A fundamental issue was that the site owners continued to assert that the works were not continued development and therefore the level of structures erected continued to develop organically and exponentially. 

 

The structures are considered to amount to development as defined by Section 55 of the Act.  The buildings are rarely moved and given the constrained nature of the site, moving the items would still have the same appearance in planning context as if the buildings remained in situ.  There is no change to the visual impact if items are moved periodically.

 

The siting of the caravan on the land is considered to amount to a material change of use of the land, the use of the caravan not being reasonably necessary for the purposes of agriculture.

 

Site 4: Mr. R. Kurniasih

 

Following an initial site investigation it was noted that five domestic sheds and outbuildings of various sizes had been constructed on the site, for at least one year.  No livestock had been seen on the site.  These structures were considered to be buildings amounting to development as defined by Section 55 of the Act.  The buildings were not permitted development as defined by the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (as amended).  Therefore they required the benefit of planning permission.

 

Site 5: Mr. C. Cornish

 

An initial site visit noted that an outbuilding had been erected on the site. There were currently two large outbuildings erected on the site, with two chicken coops and a pig ark.  A hard core crushed aggregate track measuring 57m in length had also been laid. 

 

The works were deemed to be development as defined by Section 55 of the Act, as structures amounting to a building operation.  The land had also taken on a quasi agricultural and equestrian farm park dimension, which would represent a material change of use of the land which would therefore require planning permission.

 

Site 6: Ms. S. Charhrour-Jackson

 

A site visit revealed that a large amount of hard core material had been deposited on the land, which had been used form an access track.  The track extends 125m into the field parcel.  Tipping of the material to form the track was considered to be development as defined by Section 55 of the Act.  The works were not considered to be permitted development as defined by the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order, as the works did not relate to an agricultural holding.  As no such permission had been granted, the works were unauthorised.

 

Action Pursued to Date

 

Site 1

 

The owner had been advised that planning permission was required for the works.  The operation and activities currently undertaken did not currently represent a material change of use of the land as works fell within the definition of agriculture as defined in Section 336 of the Act.  As planning permission was required, a retrospective planning application to retain the work was submitted, in addition to a steel shipping container being sited on the land.  

 

Retrospective planning consent was refused and the owners were advised that, notwithstanding their right of appeal, they must restore the land to its former condition and the ponds and drainage channels must be refilled.

 

Site 2

 

The owner was sent a letter that stated planning consent was required and all works were unauthorised and subject to enforcement control.  The owner was advised to stop work in constructing the building and access track. 

 

A Planning Contravention Notice (PCN) was served on the owner under the provision of Section 171(C) of the Act, which required specific information relating to the alleged breach of the planning control.  The information required included the establishment of the exact use of the building, land and livestock holding details.  In addition, the PCN sought to establish the purpose of the keeping of livestock on the land.

 

The details returned in the PCN led to the owner being advised that in terms of the merits of the work, an application for retrospective consent was unlikely to receive a positive recommendation that would lead to the grant of planning permission.  The owner had been instructed to remove the building and access track and restore the land to its former condition.  No action had been taken, therefore formal action was the only course of action to remedy the situation.

 

Site 3

 

The owner had been advised that buildings constituted development and therefore planning permission was required.  The owner alleged that all items on the site constituted temporary structures / chattels and therefore did not require planning permission.  The owner maintained this view, therefore formal action was now the only course of action open to the Local Planning Authority to pursue the matter further.

 

Site 4

 

Several attempts had been made to contact the owner, however the owner actively disengaged with Officers and refused to acknowledge the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act.  To date, all responses stated that the owner had not given consent to be governed or policed and that Officers had failed to identify a proof of claim or proof of authority. 

 

Officers elected not to serve a PCN on the owner as it was evident from the site visits that no agricultural activity had been undertaken and the buildings were not designed for livestock housing.  As the owner was unwilling to engage with Officers, formal action was the only mechanism to pursue the matter further.

 

Site 5

 

The owner advised that he was willing to co-operate with the Local Planning Authority and remove the larger buildings.  A timescale was informally agreed for this, which leads into spring 2014.  The owner had been advised that authorisation would be sought to formalise this as a requirement through the service of an Enforcement Notice requiring the removal of the buildings.  This would secure the Local Planning Authority position, and ensure that position in the future should the buildings not have been removed within the negotiated period.

 

Officers were currently awaiting the return of a PCN to formally establish the extent of alleged use of the land in relation to a farm park to conclude if these activities constituted a material change to the use of the land.

 

Site 6

 

The ongoing investigations at the site revealed that a new parcel of land was being developed and an access track was being created at one of the parcels.  Land registry searches had been undertaken but the owners had been unable to be identified as the land registry title transfer had not been completed.  Messages were left at the site in sealed envelopes, but the developer had not responded to any correspondence.

 

A recent land registry search had now identified the owners and Officers had contacted them to outline the requirement of planning permission.  Officers had received a call to outline that work will be undertaken to remove the development prior to mid January 2014.  No action has been taken to date.

 

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 1960 (as amended) to require:

 

(i)            Permanent removal of all buildings and the access tracks from the land.

(ii)          Permanent removal from the land of all materials and debris arising from the compliance with (i) above.

(iii)         Restoration of the land to its former condition prior to the operational development described being undertaken.

(iv)         Backfill the lagoons / ponds created by the engineering operations at the land.

(v)          Cease the use of the land for all purposes outside of the definition of agriculture.

 

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

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       It is considered that the developments detract from the unspoilt, undeveloped rural character and appearance of the landscape, recognised for its special landscape importance and are not reasonably necessary for the purposes of agriculture on the land.  The developments erode the special landscape qualities of this previously undeveloped rural landscape to the detriment of the visual amenity of the area.  The cumulative impact of these developments only further compound these issues, all contrary to Policies ENV1 – Development in the Countryside, ENV2 – Agricultural Land, ENV4 – Special Landscape Areas, ENV10 – Conservation of the Countryside, ENV27 – Design of New Developments, EMP8 – Agricultural Enterprise and Associated Development, and Strategic Policy 1; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Design in the Landscape and Sustainable Development; and national guidance in Planning Policy Wales and technical Advice Note 6 – Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities.

 

(2)       To ensure compliance with the Enforcement Notice and secure the ultimate restoration of the land.

The use of land for the stationing of caravans for residential purposes for 1 no. gypsy pitch together with the formation of additional hard standing and utility / dayroom ancillary to that use

 

REFUSED                (Written representations)

 

1.         In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority it is considered that the proposal represents an, inappropriate and unjustified form of development in this countryside location that which would detract from the openness of a rural area designated as a Green Wedge and would therefore be contrary to  contrary to Policies ENV3 - Green Wedges, ENV1 - Development in the Countryside; and HOUS14 - Gypsy Caravans of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Design in the Landscape and Sustainable Development; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales, TAN12 - Design and Circular 30/2007 Planning for Gypsy and Traveller Caravan Sites.

 

2.         The development fails to provide a safe vehicular access to the adopted highway as no evidence has been provided of a right of access over the unadopted private lane to Greenwood Quarry (and the owners of this land have not been notified of or included with the details submitted with this application), and the provision of a safe access through the existing gateway would require the removal of significant lengths of indigenous hedgerow , to the detriment of the character and appearance of the countryside in this Green Wedge location, with possible detrimental effects on existing ecological interests which have not been properly assessed  and is therefore considered contrary to Policies ENV27 - Design of New Developments criteria, ENV - 29 Protection of Environmental Quality and HOUS14 Gypsy Caravans of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011.
