8.1       DIS/2019/114 – Application to discharge conditions (06) (Archaeological work), (08) (Lighting details), (10) (Drainage details) of planning permission 34LPA1034/CC/ECON on land at Bryn Cefni Industrial Park, Llangefni

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as it was made by the County Council.

 

The Development Management Manager reported that an outline application reference 34LPA1034/CC/ECON was approved in June, 2017 for 7 units for general business use   (Class B1) general industrial use, (Class B2) and warehousing and distribution use (Class B8) as an extension to the existing business park. In order to fulfil the conditions of consent, details have now been submitted with respect to archaeology, lighting and surface water drainage; the details with regard to archaeology and lighting are considered acceptable. Amended drainage details have since been received and although they are considered acceptable in principle, they are still being considered. It is the Officer’s recommendation therefore that the conditions can be discharged subject to the drainage details being confirmed as acceptable.

 

Councillor Dafydd Roberts proposed, seconded by Councillor Trefor Lloyd Hughes that the application be approved in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

It was resolved to approve the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation and report subject to receipt of confirmation that the drainage details are acceptable.

 

8.2       DRM/2019/11 – Application for reserved matters for the erection of 7 business units together with the construction of a vehicular access and associated development on land at Bryn Cefni Industrial Park, Llangefni

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as it was submitted on behalf of the County Council.

 

The Development Management Manager reported that the application site will be located on three separate parcels of land which are crossed by the Llangefni link road. In accordance with the outline application approved in June 2017, five units will be located on land to the north of the link road and the remaining two units will be located to the south. All units will be served by internal roads and will be accessed from the link road. The Officer said that in terms of layout, scale, appearance and materials the units reflect other buildings in the locality and taking into account the proposed landscaping works as described in the report, it is considered that the proposal will fit in with the surrounding area. The Highways Service is satisfied with the access arrangements and the Town Council has since confirmed that it supports the application. The recommendation is therefore to approve the application.

Councillor Bryan Owen proposed, seconded by Councillor Vaughan Hughes, that the application be approved in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation.

Minutes:

12.1    FPL/2019/300 – Full application for alterations and extensions together with the creation of new parking area at 15/16 Coedwig Terrace, Penmon 

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as it is made by the Council’s Housing Service and is on Council owned land.

 

The Development Management Manager reported that the proposal is for the demolition of the single storey extensions to the rear of 15 and 16 Coedwig Terrace together with the erection of two storey extensions in lieu to the rear of both properties. The site is located within the Anglesey Coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The interior layout of both properties will be amended to make better use of the space and to provide a two bedroom dwelling in each case. Under the scheme all aspects of the external finishes will be renewed and replaced with modern equivalents meaning the proposed development will better reflect and integrate with the appearance of the street most of which has already been upgraded to modern materials. It is not considered that the scheme will result in any unacceptable impact on the amenities of the occupants of neighbouring properties. The Highways Service has since confirmed that it is satisfied with the proposal subject to standard conditions additional to those set out in the report.

 

Councillor Robin Williams proposed, seconded by Councillor Dafydd Roberts that the application be approved in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation.

 

It was resolved to approve the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation and report subject to the conditions contained therein and additional standard conditions in relation to highways.

 

12.2    DEM/2019/17 – Application to determine whether prior approval is required for the demolition of the former Ysgol Parch.Thomas Ellis, Maes Hyfryd Road, Holyhead

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as it submitted by the County Council and is on Council owned land.

 

The Development Management Manager reported that under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, the demolition of buildings does not require planning permission subject to the developer first applying to the Local Planning Authority to confirm whether its prior approval is required for the method of demolition and any restoration of the site. Two of the Local Members have confirmed they have no objections to the proposal; neither has the Town Council any objections provided that the playing field is retained for community use and the site considered for future use as a new medical centre. However, as under the provisions of the Order only the method of demolition and restoration of the site are to be considered, the retention of the site and its future use are not considerations in determining the application. In accordance with this process, the Local Planning Authority was afforded a 28 day period to consider the proposed demolition and it confirmed during that period that prior approval would be required in order to obtain a Demolition Environmental Management Plan (DEMP) which details management measures to minimise impacts from  ...  view the full minutes text for item 12.

Minutes:

13.1    42C188E/ENF – Retrospective application for the erection of a new build holiday letting unit at 4 Tai Hirion, Rhoscefnhir

 

At its meeting on 7 November, 2018, the Committee resolved to approve the application contrary to the Officer’s recommendation subject to the signing of a Section 106 agreement. The application is reported to the Planning and Orders Committee in order to confirm the terms of the Section 106 agreement.

 

The Development Management Manger reported that the minutes of the Committee’s 7 November, 2018 meeting state “It was resolved to approve the application contrary to the Officer’s recommendation subject to a section 106 agreement to incorporate the operation at 4 Tai Hirion and the operation at Rhyd y Delyn into one business unit and subject also to planning conditions to be determined by the Officers.” At its previous meeting in October, 2018 the Committee had discussed incorporating all the businesses in Rhyd y Delyn and Tai Hirion together to include the touring caravan site located at Tai Hirion; this is how Officers had interpreted the Committee’s wishes in drafting the Section 106 agreement. However, a letter dated 8 January, 2020 from the applicant’s agent notes that the minutes are clear that it was the Committee’s wishes that the Section 106 agreement should only cover the holiday letting unit located at 4 Tai Hirion which was the subject of the application, and also the businesses located at Rhyd y Delyn.

 

Councillor Richard Owain Jones said that in proposing the Section 106 agreement originally, he had intended that it should cover the businesses at 4 Tai Hirion and Rhyd y Delyn but not the touring caravan site as this was owned by the son.  In that case he believed the minutes to be a correct reflection of what was determined and he proposed that they be reaffirmed as such. Councillor Eric Jones seconded the proposal.

 

It was resolved to confirm that the terms of the Section 106 agreement shall mean the holiday unit located at 4 Tai Hirion and the Bed and Breakfast and cheese making businesses at Rhyd y Delyn.
