Public Speakers

 

Mrs Bethan Roberts (against the proposal) said the applicants live and carry out their business from Plas Llandegfan where there are no neighbouring dwellings.  She noted that in the past numerous livestock sheds have been built at Plas Llandegfan and the owners carry out their daily agricultural business from this farm.  She expressed that nobody lives at the application site at Fferam Uchaf and there is a risk of potential vandalism and fire hazards with the storage of 200 cattle within the livestock shed.  Mrs Roberts said that she was disappointed that during the site visit to the site, Members of the Committee did not view the access to the village of Llansadwrn which is a dangerous road.  A children’s playing field is located on one side of the road leading to Llansadwrn and a blind bend on the other side; a risk assessment of the access road has not taken place as part of the application; parents and children walk on the side of the road to the playing field.  The highway does not have a pavement and to build an immense livestock shed on the application site is of deep concerns as heavy traffic will be using this narrow road during construction of the shed and thereafter carrying feeding and agricultural equipment to and from the farm. 

 

Mrs Roberts further said that the proposed livestock shed is certain to cause pollution and foul odour together with potential vermin infestation and flies; there has been no soil porosity test attached to the application.    She noted that the neighbouring properties will have to suffer heavy machinery transporting slurry from the farm and can cause mess on the roads.   She further referred to  BS5502 which states that such agricultural sheds of this proportion should not be erected within 400m of residential dwellings.     

 

Ms Sioned Edwards (in support of the application) said that the applicants wish to enhance their beef enterprise within the farming business.  At present the applicants own 700 cattle at five locations and it is an intention to rearrange their agricultural business with three farming units housing beef cattle and thereafter releasing the other two locations for the storage of agricultural machinery and produce.   The planning application is for the erection of an agricultural shed to house 200 beef cattle over the winter months.  The applicants wish to ensure their business venture works in a more efficient manner.  Ms Edwards further said that the applicants have worked closely with the Officers of the Planning Authority to mitigate possible effects on neighbouring properties  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.
