To consider report of the Interim Chief Executive

Minutes:

The Planning Officer led the committee through the report with the aid of a power point presentation.

 

The following questions were raised by the Committee and responded to in detail by the Planning Officers in attendance.

 

·       Is the existing archway being demolished to allow two way traffic for the site?

 

·       Page 4 (table of properties). - How many bedrooms do these properties have?

 

·       Page 7 (Environmental Health Manager has no objection subject to conditions) – Is this because of the likelihood of asbestos or other contaminations that may be found on site?

 

·       Page 7 (letter from Merthyr Heritage Trust) – clarity sought on ‘property on the eastern side of the listed building being deleted’ and what is ‘placemaking’?

 

·       Page 13 – (gas boilers to be installed).  UK Government have said heat pumps should be installed in residential dwellings within nine years.  Was this discussed between the developer and planning?

 

·       As it is stated in the report ‘subject to Listed Building Consent’ will this require a further report?

 

·       Open space biodiversity area – who would be responsible for the long term upkeep?

 

·       Run off drain water system – is there a maximum capacity of what the SUDS system can take?

 

·       What steps will be taken to ensure planning conditions are met?

 

·       Page 4 - As the existing fire escape stairway will be demolished, will a replacement fire escape be provided?

 

·       Page 6 (Publicity) – have the restoration issues been addressed?

 

·       How many parking spaces are there in total for the site?

 

·       How will the affordable housing allocation be managed?

 

·       Will there be a section 106 on this site?

 

·       Will bungalows be suitable for disabled access?

 

Members expressed their views on this being a very welcome development that was long overdue.

 

After consideration by Committee, it was Resolved that:

 

In accordance with the recommendation of the Head of Town Planning and Countryside, the application be approved subject to the conditions outlined in the report.
