Council issues Sully development with stop notice
The Vale of Glamorgan Council has issued a notice for all development on an area of land in Sully to stop after receiving evidence it may have led to the destruction of birds’ nests.
Officers issued the notice today and informed Natural Resources Wales and the Wildlife and Environment Crime Officer. The stop notice means all development must cease until the developer gains consent for any intended works.
A satisfactory planning application for the work in question is yet to be received, but preparatory work to change ground levels still appears to have taken place.
Accompanying documentation was not supplied with the invalid application that has been received, paperwork that is necessary as this would be classed as a major development due to the site area.
A statutory pre-application consultation needs to be carried out and that has not happened.
Cllr Lis Burnett, Leader of the Vale of Glamorgan Council, said: “The Council is aware of the depth of local feeling regarding this proposed development and very concerned at the lack of engagement with proper planning procedures so far.
“Officers are closely monitoring this site and will not hesitate to intervene again if further violations are found to have been committed.”
