7.1 19C1231 – Outline application for the erection of 32 market dwellings and 4 affordable dwellings, construction of new vehicular and pedestrian access, provision of play area and open spaces together with full details of access and layout on land adjacent to Cae Rhos Estate, Porthdafarch Road, Holyhead

 

The Development Management Manager reported that the applicant’s agent has this morning offered a piece of land at Mountain View, Holyhead for parking for local residents and also to respond to highways concerns in the area. There has been an agreement between the applicant’s and the Highways Authority that the application be deferred so as to allow further discussions as regards to the application.

 

Councillor Robin Williams proposed that the application be deferred and Councillor Eric W Jones seconded the proposal.

 

It was RESOLVED to defer the application for the reasons given at the meeting.

 

7.2 FPL/2019/223 – Full application for change of use of agricultural land into a seasonal tent camping site on land adjacent to Pen-Wal Bach, Pen Lon, Newborough

 

The application was presented to the Planning and Orders Committee at the request of Local Members.

 

It was reported that a letter was received by Mr Richard Wyn Owen on behalf of the Pen Lon community in opposition of the application. The letter was read out to the meeting as follows:-

 

‘The Pen Lon community strongly object to the above planning application to change the use of the current agricultural field into a camp site. The Planning Department has received over 30 letters objecting to the proposal and a petition 3

 

with 46 names has also been received objecting to the planning application. Pen Lon is a quiet rural hamlet and is known for its tranquillity, the application site is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 

Last year the owners of the land used the land for tents under the 28-day temporary planning rule. They failed to comply with the 28-day temporary rule and used the land in excess of 60 days. The noise generated from the site was tremendous and loud music, shouting and people drinking could be heard coming from the site between 2-3am in the morning. The amount of additional traffic generated on the single track, unclassified highway by the tent site last year was incredible. The planning application submitted states that cars will enter via the main road and exit on the unclassified road directly opposite an existing property known as ‘Rushmead’. The location of this site means that people will be dependent on their private cars to travel around due to the lack of public transport in the area. This will have a negative impact upon the amenities of this property as there will be a constant flow of traffic leaving the site together with car headlights at night-time.

 

Hypothetically, as an example, should there be 30Campers on site on any time, this will incur up to 90no vehicle trips per day onto the single track unclassified highway due to  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.

10.1 VAR/2020/14 – Application under Section 73 for the variation of condition (02) (Approved Plans) of planning permission reference VAR/2019/19 (Conversion of outbuilding into a dwelling) so as to change the roofing material from metal panels to slate at Neuadd, Cemaes

 

The application was presented to the Planning and Orders Committee as the proposal is contrary to policies of the Joint Local Development Plan but which the Local Planning Authority is minded to approve.

 

The Development Management Manger reported that the application is made under Section 73 in relation to change to the approved roofing material from metal to natural slates. It is considered that such an amendment is acceptable and will result in an overall improvement to the approved scheme. However, since the adoption of the Joint Local Development Plan, conversion of traditional buildings into residential use will only be permitted where there is evidence that employment use of the building is not viable and that it provides an affordable unit for local need. The application is contrary to Policy TAI 7 of the Joint Local Development Plan, however a fall-back position exists as the site benefits from an extant permission for the conversion of the outbuilding into a dwelling.

 

Councillor K P Hughes proposed that the application be approved and Councillor Robin Williams seconded the proposal.

 

It was RESOLVED to approve the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation subject to the conditions listed within the written report.

 

10.2 18C223M/VAR – Application under Section 73 for the variation of conditions (02) (drainage details) and (06) (passing place details) of planning permission reference 18C223C (conversion of outbuildings into 8 holiday cottages) so as to allow the submission of information after works has commenced at Caerau, Llanfairynghornwy

 

The application was presented to the Planning and Orders Committee as the proposal is contrary to policies of the Joint Local Development Plan but which the Local Planning Authority is minded to approve.

 

The Development Management Manager reported is contrary to Policy TAI 7 of the Joint Local Development Plan, however fall-back position is that the permission has sufficient time to be implemented and submitted details are considered acceptable by relevant consultees.

 

Councillor K P Hughes proposed that the application be approved and Councillor Vaughan Hughes seconded the proposal.

 

It was RESOLVED to approve the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation subject to the conditions listed within the written report.

 

10.3 VAR/2020/15 – Application under Section 73 for the variation of condition (03) (the development permitted by this consent shall be carried out in strict accordance to the plans submitted) of planning permission reference 36C49H (Change of use of barn into a dwelling, alterations and extensions to the former derelict cottage into a garage together with the installation of a septic tank) so as to amend design at Tithe Barn, Henblas, Bodorgan

Minutes:

11.1 HHP/2020/82 – Full application for alterations and extensions, erection of an annexe together with an extension to the curtilage at Erw Goch, Brynsiencyn

 

The application was presented to the Planning and Orders Committee as the applicant is related to an Elected Member and is also an employee of the Local Authority. The application has been scrutinised by the Monitoring Officer as required under paragraph 4.6.10.4 of the Constitution.

 

Having declared a prejudicial interest in this application, Councillor Eric W Jones left the meeting during discussion and voting thereon.

 

The Planning Built & Natural Environment Manager reported that the proposed extension of the property to provide an annexe which is to the north east of the existing dwelling and would necessitate the extension of the existing curtilage into the adjoining field which is in the ownership of the applicants. In order to mitigate the loss of hedgerow the developer will be required to submit a planting scheme and subsequent management of the replacement hedgerow which will provide screening to reduce any visual impact and provide biodiversity benefits. A traffic management plan has been submitted with the application which confirms that delivery of materials to the site will be co-ordinated to arrive between 9.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m., so as to avoid conflict with children arriving/leaving the nearby primary school. The intention is for the applicant’s to move into the proposed annexe whilst their daughter and family would occupy the main dwelling. The applicant’s granddaughter has special needs and the applicants assist in her daily care and provides support to the child’s parents. The design and the location of the development is acceptable under planning policies and is comparable in size to neighbouring property.

 

Councillor Dafydd Roberts said that the local Community Council supports the application and he proposed that the application be approved subject to the conditions within the Officer’s written report. Councillor Bryan Owen seconded the proposal.

 

It was RESOLVED to approve the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation subject to the conditions listed within the written report.
