732     LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN PROCESS REVIEW CONSULTATION (REF) -

 

The above matter had been considered by the Cabinet at its meeting of 1st December 2014 and subsequently referred on to the Planning Committee for information purposes.

 

The report sought approval for the Council's response to the Welsh Government's (WG) consultation concerning a review of the Local Development Plan (LDP) process.

 

The WG had consulted the Council on changes it proposed to make to the LDP system in Wales.  Full details of the changes could be found at: http://wales.gov.uk/consultations/planning/local-development-plans-process-review/?lang=en

 

The Council was now at an advanced stage of preparing its own LDP and a report outlining responses made to the Council's Deposit LDP and to the Alternative Site process would be presented to Cabinet for consideration in spring 2015.  The LDP would then be submitted to the WG in early summer 2015 to enable an Examination in Public to be held in which an Inspector would ascertain whether the Plan was "Sound".  Currently the Plan was due to be formally adopted in late 2016.  Full details of the Council's LDP could be found at: http://www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/ldp.

 

The main matters proposed for review by the Consultation were as follows:

  • to increase and improve front-loading of the LDP process, with a more integrated approach to incorporating sustainability appraisal / strategic environmental assessment fully into LDP preparation, a more informative Preferred Strategy and a requirement for sites being brought forward at the early stages of the process negating the need for the resource intensive and extremely confusing 'Alternative Site’ stage;
  • to reduce the required stages for LDP plan revision, by introducing a shorter procedure for making partial revisions to an adopted LDP where the issues involved are not of sufficient significance to warrant the full procedure;
  • to amend the LDP soundness tests to make them clearer and simpler and
  • to provide greater clarity in relation to the LDP's evidence base, deliverability, monitoring and review.

The Council's proposed response to the WG's Consultation on the LDP Process Review was attached at Appendix 1 to the Report.

 

Cabinet had resolved –

 

(1)       That the response to the Local Development Plan Process Review Consultation as attached at Appendix 1 to the report be forwarded to  Welsh Government before the 2 January, 2015 deadline.

 

(2)       That Cabinet receive a further report when the changes to the Local Development Plan System were implemented.

 

(3)       That the report be referred to Planning Committee for information.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

(1)       To enable the Council's response to the Welsh Government's Local Development Plan Process Review Consultation to be submitted by the closing date of 2 January, 2015.

 

(2)       To be advised of any changes that were made to the Local Development Plan System in Wales.

 

(3)       To advise Planning Committee of the proposed changes to the Local Development System in Wales.

 

Having considered the decision of Cabinet, it was

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the decision of Cabinet be noted.

 

Reason for decision

Councillor F.T. Johnson (Chairman); Councillors H.C. Hamilton and H.J.W. James.

(b)       Footpaths Nos. 1 and 3, Gileston

Councillor F.T. Johnson (Chairman); Councillors H.C. Hamilton and H.J.W. James.

 

 

(g)       Town and Country Planning Act 1990 Section S257 Proposed Public Path Extinguishment Order Footpath No. 2 Porthkerry (DDS) -

 

The Sub-Committee considered an application made by Taylor Wimpey South Wales to extinguish part of Footpath No. 2 Porthkerry. 

 

Footpath No. 2 commenced on Porthkerry Road, Rhoose and proceeded southwards along a lane to cross the rail line at a small level crossing.  The path continued southwards over land with planning consent for a residential development, exiting onto Trem Echni (adopted highway) the path continued southwards to terminate on The Wales Coast Path at Dams Bay.  The path was a valuable link between the community of Rhoose and the coast.

 

The effect of the Order would be to extinguish part of Footpath No. 2 between points A and B as shown on the Order Plan attached to the report and shown as a bold black line. 

 

Public Footpath No. 2 would remain open and available until completion of the estate road, which would provide the alternative route.  The public footpath would be unaffected by works during development of the estate and therefore would not require temporary closure. 

 

Before making an Order to stop up or divert a footpath or bridle way under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, S257, the Council must be satisfied that it is necessary to do so in order to enable development to be carried out in accordance with the grant of planning permission.  It should not be assumed that an Order should be made simply because planning permission had been granted. 

 

The necessity test entails examining the activities authorised by the planning permission (both operational development and changes of use) to see whether they were or were not compatible with the retention of highway rights.

 

In addition to establishing necessity, the Council was also able to decide whether or not it would exercise its discretion to make an Order. 

 

Having arrived at a conclusion that it was right for the planning permission to be granted, however, there must be good reasons for deciding that an Order, which would permit implementation of that permission, should not be made or confirmed.  In determining this, it was suggested that the following may be taken into account:

  • the interest of the general public
  • the particular effect on some members of the public such as occupiers of property adjoining the highway noting this may have more importance than even that of the general public
  • any potential financial loss to members of the public.

These factors should be matters which were not taken into consideration at the time of the grant of the original planning permission and it was not open to question the merits of the original planning application.  Loss of amenity of the general public did not necessarily have to be subsidiary to any benefit to the developer.

 

In the current case, it was noted that planning consent granted in 2012/00937/FUL included provision for enclosure of gardens across the route currently occupied by the public right of way by way of erection of fencing.  It was submitted that this was incompatible with retention of the highway.  Layout of the footways within the development site provided an alternative route.

 

The Members of the Sub-Committee, having deliberated on the application and supporting evidence together with the comments of the objectors at the pre-Order consultation, it was unanimously

 

RESOLVED - T H A T the Council, being the relevant Highway Authority for the affected footpath, proceed with making an Order to extinguish part of Footpath No. 2 Porthkerry as described in the Order Plan and Schedule as attached at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

Reason for decision

 

Part of the footpath is affected by a residential development; consent reference 2012/00937/FUL.  The site layout would provide access through the development upon completion of the works.  It was necessary to make an Order to enable development to be carried out in accordance with the grant of planning permission.

738     GENERAL PLANNING MATTERS (DDS) -

 

(i)         Letter from Minister for the Environment Regarding a Clarification of National Planning Policies That Apply for Onshore Unconventional Gas and Oil Development -

 

The Committee received a report which advised that on 8th July 2014 the above Minister released a clarification letter relating to unconventional oil and gas development. The letter was attached at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

Policy Clarification letters provided urgent clarification of policy or procedure issued

by the Minister or Planning Division.

 

Members were aware that after the determination of three applications for gas exploration in locations in the Vale of Glamorgan in October 2013, Committee requested a letter be sent to Welsh Government asking for further policy clarification in relation to such applications.  It was understood that this letter was the response to that request and similar requests from other Councils. The Committee was informed that the letter:

  • Explained the various stages of such developments;
  • Highlighted the National Policy background;
  • Advised which issues were relevant for consideration through the planning process;
  • Identified the regulatory road map guidance produced by the UK Government, which was attached at Appendix 2 to the report;
  • Advised on the need for Environmental Impact Assessment;
  • Dealt with restoration and after-use.

The Committee was advised that although the letter was helpful in a Welsh context, it was essentially a recognition of the relevance of the UK Government prepared regulatory roadmap in the planning system in Wales.

 

Following consideration of the report the Planning Committee

 

RESOLVED -

 

T H A T the content of the letter and associated regulatory road map be noted.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

To have regard to the contents of the letter and the associated regulatory road map.
