The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee at the request of the Local Members. At the Committee’s 7 July, 2021 meeting it was resolved that a site visit was required. A virtual site visit was subsequently carried out on 21 July, 2021.

 

The Chief Planning Officer reported that during the virtual site visit it was confirmed by the Planning Case Officer that amended plans had been received in connection with the application. It is therefore recommended that determination of the application be deferred to allow the amended plans to be considered and further consultation to take place.

 

It was resolved to defer determination of the application in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation for the reason given.

 

7.2 FPL/2020/165 – Full application for the conversion of outbuilding into holiday let together with the felling of 3 trees protected by a tree preservation order and replacement planting in lieu at Outbuilding 1, Lleiniog, Penmon

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee at the request of a Local Member. Determination of the application was deferred at the Planning and Order’s 7 July, 2021 meeting pending the receipt of amended plans to demonstrate the compensatory planning required consequent on the proposed removal of 3 trees which are currently protected by a tree preservation order. The amended plans were received on 7 July, 2021 following which amended consultations and neighbourhood notifications were issued with the latest date for representations to be made being 29 July, 2021.

 

Public Speaker

 

Mr Rhys Davies, Cadnant Planning spoke in support of the application highlighting that Listed Building Consent for the conversion of the outbuilding into a holiday unit has already been granted and that the Officer’s report confirms that the principle of the conversion of outbuildings into holiday accommodation is established under policy TWR2 of the Joint Local Development Plan (JLDP). The proposal complies with the criteria presented under Policy TWR 2 in that it makes use of a suitable previously developed site; it is appropriate in scale and does not significantly harm the residential character of the area. The proposal is also in a sustainable location being within walking distance of a bus stop and the village of Llangoed via foot or bicycle. The access from off the highway leading to Penmon is considered acceptable with minor improvements as are the plans from a heritage perspective. Questions have arisen regarding what might be the economic benefits to the locality from such a development especially as the developer is not local. The applicant has confirmed in a response to the Head of Service that Amos Leisure has to date invested £4m across three sites in Anglesey and that it directly employs four local members of staff Additionally the company employs eight local sub-contractors on a full time basis  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.

Minutes:

11.1    LUP/2021/1 – Application for a Certificate of Lawfulness for the proposed use of existing workshop as dwellings (C3) at Workshop, Tre Wen, Pen Lôn, Newborough

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as the applicant is related to a relevant officer. The application has been scrutinised by the Council’s Monitoring Officer.

 

The Planning Enforcement Manager reported that planning permission to convert the workshop into three dwellings has been granted following which an application to vary the permission (VAR/2020/74) to include two porches was approved. The foundations of the porches have now been constructed under this permission the issue being whether the planning permission VAR/2020/74 has lawfully commenced. It should be noted that planning policies do not apply to the determination of an application for a Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Use or Development (CLPUD); the Local Planning Authority’s considerations in relation to such applications are based solely on an assessment of the evidence submitted by the applicant to determine whether the development subject to the application is lawful under the planning act. In accordance with the legal advice provided as outlined in the report, the Officer’s view is that the burden of proof has been discharged on the burden of probabilities and the recommendation is therefore to approve the application.

 

Councillor Eric Jones proposed, seconded by Councillor Kenneth 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.

12.1    FPL/2021/92 – Full application for the erection of a new agricultural building for storage and lambing on land near Graianbwll, Llanddaniel

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee at the request of a Local Member.

 

The Chair informed the Committee that the Local Member had been in touch with her to confirm that although he had called in the application due to local concerns, he thought the Officer’s report was fair and that with the addition of the two landscaping conditions as outlined, the application is now acceptable.

 

The Chief Planning Officer reported that it is the Officer’s view that the site is suitable for the agricultural shed as proposed being in a low-lying location with hills coming up/down from both directions. Given the location, the current screening and the additional screening to be conditioned in line with the request made by the Landscape Advisor and Ecological Advisor for additional mitigation, the visual impacts are perceived to be minimal. The design and colour of the proposed shed are also considered acceptable and the recommendation is therefore one of approval.

 

Councillor Robin Williams proposed, seconded by Councillor Eric Jones 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 listed therein.

 

12.2 FPL/2021/147 – Full application for the removal of the existing mobile teaching classroom building, siting new mobile classroom building, erection of fencing together with hard landscaping at Ysgol Henblas, Henblas

 

The application was reported to the Planning and Orders Committee as the Isle of Anglesey County Council is the applicant and landowner.

 

The Planning Enforcement Manager reported that the proposed new classroom will be located in the same location as the existing classroom but will be of a slightly larger footprint. The height will remain at approximately 3.6m such that the new classroom should integrate into its surroundings. Privacy concerns raised by the owner of the neighbouring property will be addressed via a 2m high welded mesh fence along the west boundary of the school playground which will protect the privacy of both the school grounds and the neighbouring properties.  Welsh Water has now confirmed conditional approval and Gwynedd Consultancy has confirmed that it has no comments on the application. The recommendation is therefore to approve the application subject to no new issues being raised before the expiry of the consultation and publicity period on 29 July, 2021.

 

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

 

It was resolved to delegate approval of the application to Officers at the end of the consultation period in accordance with the recommendation and report subject to the planning conditions contained therein and subject also to no new issues being raised before the expiry of the publicity period.

 

12.3 FPL/2021/86 – Retrospective application for alterations to the existing vehicular access, re-building of a stone boundary  ...  view the full minutes text for item 12.
