59        ENFORCEMENT ACTION (DDS) -

 

(i)         Land and Buildings at No. 23 Greave Close, Wenvoe -

 

A complaint had been received regarding the creation of a vehicle access at 23 Greave Close, Wenvoe onto Tarrws Lane.  The site related to a parcel of land adjoining No. 23 Greave Close which was within the residential settlement boundary of Wenvoe.  The dwelling was a detached bungalow which was located at the end of a cul-de-sac and which had been recently extended and modified. 

 

The site adjoined the Dyffryn Basin and Ridge Slopes Special Landscape Area and a Green Wedge, to the north.  Existing vehicular access to the site could be made only via Greave Close whilst a pedestrian stepped approach onto Greave Close to the east of the site from Old Port Road/Nant Isaf.

 

Following a site inspection, it had been noted that works had been carried out to form an access onto the adjoining highway Tarrws Lane.  An opening had been formed to the site of 23 Greave Close of approximately 5 - 7 m wide as well as a dropped kerb paving.  A flat gravel area had been created that could accommodate two vehicles.  The land to the site of the property was not considered to form the curtilage and was outside the original, lawful residential plot of 23 Greave Close.  Furthermore, due to the changes in levels from the higher position of the dwelling to the highway, engineering operations had been carried out to remove the hedgerow and banking so as to create a level access with the road. 

 

In view of the above, it was considered that the works to extend the residential garden would be considered to be a material change of use of the land and the works to form an access would be considered engineering works that required planning permission.  As for the new access, permitted development rights existed for the formation of a new means of access (Class B of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995).  The new access in this case did not benefit from these permitted development rights.  Development was only permitted under Class B when the access was required in connection with other works (i.e. the engineering works to remove the bank and form the parking area) that benefit from permitted development rights under any class in Schedule 2 of the 1995 Order.

 

As the engineering works to create the parking area did not benefit from any permitted development rights granted under any Class in Schedule 2 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, it was considered that the access also required planning permission. 

 

Whilst a number of recent applications had been submitted proposing similar works to the property, no such permission had been granted for the change of use of the land, the engineering operations or the access.  The works were, therefore, unauthorised and in breach of planning controls.

 

The owner of the property had been advised that the vehicle opening and change of use of the land required planning permission by letter and on site.  It had been explained that having considered a recent planning application refusal and the dismissed appeal for an access onto the lane, it was unlikely that the Council would support the access onto Tarrws Lane.

 

The owner had outlined by letter that he did not wish to use the access for parking his vehicles and it was currently on site as a temporary measure whilst he was having building materials delivered to the property during renovations.  He also outlined that the Highways Department had granted consent for the access, but this had been denied by the Highways Authority.  He had requested to use the access in this manner until May 2014.

 

It was considered that whilst the temporary period requested by the owner had not come to an end, it was appropriate to gain the necessary authorisation to safeguard the Council’s position against the unauthorised access onto Tarrws Lane. 

 

It was noted that discussions had taken place on site regarding a proposal to rebuild the retaining wall for the rear garden and the erection of a fence on top of the retaining wall.  It had been outlined that this would also need planning permission.  An application had been submitted by the owner, Reference 2014/00204/FUL and had been approved on 16th April, 2014. 

 

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)         Stop up the vehicle access from No. 23 Greave Close onto Tarrws Lane by constructing an appropriate fence enclosure.

 

            (ii)        Remove the parking area.

 

            (iii)       The reinstatement of the bank and hedgerow along the boundary of the site with the adjoining highway.

 

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

 

Reason for decisions

 

(1&2)  The creation of the access with associated vehicle movements into and out of the site will be detrimental to existing users of the lane and impact on highway safety in general.  In addition, the unauthorised hardstanding impacts to an unacceptable degree on the character and appearance of the rural lane and adjoining rural area.  Accordingly, it was considered that the unauthorised works were contrary to advice and guidance in Planning Policy Wales as well as the objectives of Policy ENV27 - Design of New Development of the Council’s Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996 - 2011 and the Council’s Approved Supplementary Planning Guidance on ‘Design in the Landscape’.

Redevelopment of Established Industrial Area for Residential Purposes (Option 1) - 5 dwellings

 

REFUSED    (written representations)

 

1.         By reason of the scale of the proposals and the surrounding rural context, and in the absence of any agricultural or rural enterprise justification, the proposed development represents an unjustified form of residential development in the open countryside which would introduce an urbanised form of residential development in a countryside location, contrary to the restrictive policies against the development of countryside for such uses and having a harmful effect on the character and appearance of the countryside. The development is, therefore, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside, ENV27 - Design of New Developments, and HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside, and Strategic Policies 1 & 2 (The Environment) and 8 (Transportation) of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Development; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales (Edition 6, 2014) and TAN6 - Planning for Sustainable Communities, and TAN12 - Design.

 

2.         By reason of the redevelopment of an established rural industrial site, the proposed development would result in the loss of existing rural employment land contrary to the policy presumption in favour of the retention of such uses.  The development is, therefore, contrary to the principle of Policy EMP4 - Protection of Land for Employment of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; and national planning guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales and TAN6-Planning for Sustainable Communities.

 

3.         By reason of the site's isolated position outside of any defined settlement boundary, the development is considered to be in an unsustainable and unsuitable location where the new dwellings would be remote from day to day amenities and services required by the future occupiers, resulting in a reliance on the private car. The proposal is consequently contrary to Strategic Policies 2 and 8, and Policy ENV27 - Design of New Developments of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan (1996-2011) and the national policy presumption in favour of sustainable development contained within Planning Policy Wales (Edition 6, 2014).

Redevelopment of Established Industrial Area for Residential Purposes (option 2) Five dwellings

 

REFUSED    (written representation)

 

1.         By reason of the scale and design of the proposals, the development would have a harmful impact on the character and appearance of the countryside by introducing a linear and urbanised form of residential development in a countryside location, in the absence of any agricultural or rural enterprise justification.  The development therefore, represents an unjustified form of residential development in the open countryside contrary to the restrictive policies against the development of countryside for such uses.  The development is, therefore, contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside, ENV27 - Design of New Developments, and HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside, and Strategic Policies 1 & 2 (The Environment) and 8 (Transportation) of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Development; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales (Edition 6, 2014) and TAN6 - Planning for Sustainable Communities and TAN12 - Design.

 

2.         By reason of the redevelopment of an established rural industrial unit, the proposed development would result in the loss of existing rural employment land, contrary to the policy presumption in favour of the retention of such uses.  The development is, therefore, contrary to the principle of Policy EMP4 - Protection of Land for Employment of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; and national planning guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales and TAN6 - Planning for Sustainable Communities.

 

3.         By reason of the site's isolated position outside of any defined settlement boundary, the development is considered to be in an unsustainable and unsuitable location where the new dwelling would be remote from day to day amenities and services required by the future occupiers, resulting in a reliance on the private car.

Proposed residential development (1 dwelling) on the existing disused car park

 

REFUSED    (written representation)

 

1.         By reason of its siting and surrounding context, and the absence of an agricultural/forestry/rural enterprise justification, the proposal represents an unjustified and unacceptable form of development in the countryside, which would detract from the site's undeveloped character and rural context, and the wider character of the surrounding countryside and Special Landscape Area. The development is therefore contrary to Policies ENV1 - Development in the Countryside, ENV4 - Special Landscape Areas, ENV10 - Conservation of the Countryside, ENV11 - Protection of Landscape Features, ENV27 - Design of New Developments, HOUS3 - Dwellings in the Countryside, and Strategic Policies 1 & 2-The Environment and 8-Transportation of the Vale of Glamorgan Adopted Unitary Development Plan 1996-2011; Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Development; and national guidance contained in Planning Policy Wales, TAN6-Planning for Sustainable Communities and TAN12-Design.
