2.         In the event of Committee agreeing to the recommendation to refuse the planning application, the Director of Legal and Regulatory Services be authorised to take all necessary action including under Section 172 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to require:

           

(i)         The removal of unauthorised works and buildings from the land, including, wind turbine, solar panels, mobile home and outbuilding.

 

3.         In the event of non-compliance with the Notice, authorisation is also sought to take such legal proceedings as may be required.

RESOLVED – T H A T Members note the content of the report and that a non-determination appeal had now been submitted by the Applicant.  Members agreed that the following reasons should form the basis of the Council’s case in resisting the appeal. Committee requested any appeal is heard as a Public Inquiry.

 

Reasons for decision

 

1.         The proposed residential development is outside the defined settlement boundary of Barry and there is no overriding justification or material consideration to outweigh the in principle policy presumption against such development.  As such the development would be contrary to Polices ENV1 - Development in the Open Countryside, and HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Development Plan 1996 – 2011 and Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5) November 2012.

 

2.         By virtue of the parameters for development and indicative site layout forming part of this outline submission, the proposed development of 200 No. houses would adversely prejudice the open nature of the landscape and countryside and consequently the identified Green Wedge between Barry, Rhoose and St. Athan causing a detrimental effect upon the landscape and the amenity value of the land.  As such the development would be contrary to Policy ENV3 - Green Wedges of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Development Plan 1996 – 2011 and Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5) November 2012.

 

3.         The proposal has provided insufficient information on which to assess the application with regard to impact on a European Protected Species (Dormouse).  The submitted survey 'Ecological Assessment’ November 2013 does not provide the appropriate mitigation/compensation package for the conservation of dormouse required by the Local Planning Authority prior to determination.  The development would therefore be contrary to Policy ENV16 - Protected Species of the Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011 and Planning Policy Wales (Edition 5) November 2012.

 

4.         The development as proposed would be considered unsustainable by virtue of failing to mitigate the effects of up to 200 dwellings on local infrastructure including schools, the highway network and community facilities, whilst not contributing towards the evidential need for affordable housing and public open space within the area. As such, the proposals are considered contrary to Strategic Policies 2 and 8, Policies HOUS12 - Affordable Housing, ENV27 - Design of New Developments and HOUS8 - Residential Development Criteria of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011, plus Supplementary Planning Guidance 'Planning Obligations’ and the Supplementary Planning Guidance 'Affordable Housing’, the Vale of Glamorgan Affordable Housing Delivery Statement, Technical Advice Note No. 2 'Planning and Affordable Housing’ and Technical Advice Note 18 'Transport’.

 

5.         The proposed development would be contrary to the aims and objectives of the Vale of Glamorgan Deposit Local Development Plan, and as such would pre determine decisions about the location, scale and phasing of such new development which ought properly to be taken with the context of the Local Development Plan and the development is therefore considered premature pending the adoption of the Deposit Local Development Plan, and would have a significant detrimental impact on the setting of the important settlement of Barry, contrary to the advice and guidance in Chapter 2 of the Planning Policy Wales (5th Edition 2012).

Installation and operation of a solar farm and associated infrastructure, including photovoltaic panels, mounting frames, inverters, transformers, substations, communications building, fence and pole mounted security cameras, for the life of the solar farm

 

 A motion was put forward to refuse the application on the following grounds:

 

The proposed site is located within the Lower Thaw Valley Special Landscape Area and forms part of the 'Llancarfan Historic Landscape LANDMAP character area’, which has been evaluated as Outstanding (of National or International Importance).  The proposed development of a ground mounted solar photovoltaic facility, by reason of its location, size and appearance, would result in an adverse and harmful impact on the wider character and setting of this historic and sensitive landscape, and reduce the overall visual amenity of this part of the countryside, including from the nearby village and Conservation Area of Flemingston and individual rural residential properties. The impact on the historic landscape would therefore outweigh any benefits attributed to sustainable energy production and reduction of carbon footprint, such that the proposal fails to comply with Chapter 12 of Planning Policy Wales and Section 3.15 of Technical Advice Note 8 – Planning for Renewable Energy and is also contrary to Policies ENV4 – Special Landscape Areas, ENV10 – Conservation of the Countryside, ENV11 – Protection of Landscape Features, ENV17 – Protection of Built and Historic Environment and ENV27 – Design of New Development of the Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011.
