P/20/0025 - Former Ardagh Site, Dragon Parc, Abercanaid, Merthyr Tydfil pdf icon PDF 1022 KB

To consider report of the Interim Chief Executive

Minutes:

The Planning Officer led the committee through the report and provided a power point presentation to highlight the changes outlined in the report.

 

The following questions were raised by the committee and responded to in detail by the planning officers in attendance.

 

·         The report says there will be minimal raising of the land, can you explain to the committee what is minimal raising and what height will it be when the work has been completed

 

·         Under planning considerations in the report, it states that the application has been submitted to overcome flooding issues to enable a mixed residential/business development, after this work has been undertaken will that mean that future flooding on this land is very unlikely

 

·         Concerns were raised in relation to the close proximity of the main truck water main and other sewers which are of strategic importance. The developer has been asked to undertake a site investigation which would include trial holes to accurately locate the assets. However, to date no evidence of this has been submitted. Can you explain to the committee what is meant by the assets and am I right to think that Welsh Water don’t know where the mains and other sewers are located

 

·         What does it mean to accurately locate the Welsh Water assets, shouldn’t Welsh Water know where their assets are

 

·         If this application is approved, is it right that the developer must apply to Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to submit a flood plain application which requests the area be removed from the flood plain maps

 

·         Is there a risk that after carrying out all of this work there is no guarantee that NRW will accept the developers challenge and remove the area from a flood plain

 

·         Following the completion of planned works, can you say how long the flood map challenge with NRW will take

 

·         Can you confirm which roundabout the access road into the site will extend from

 

After consideration by the 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.

P/20/0102 - 16 The Park, Treharris, CF46 5RH pdf icon PDF 458 KB

To consider report of the Interim Chief Executive

Minutes:

The Planning Officer led the committee through the report and provided a power point presentation to highlight the changes outlined in the report.

 

The following questions were raised by the committee and responded to in detail by the planning officers in attendance.

 

·         South Wales Police submitted two letters outlining their concerns in relation to this application, can you confirm why you ignored their concerns

 

·         A question was raised in relation to the paragraph at the top of page 27 which states ‘the report states that based on this lack of evidence and advice in Paragraph 5.27 of circular WGC 016/2014: The Use of Planning Conditions for Development Management, it is considered a temporary permission for two years is appropriate’. Who is responsible for carrying out the review after the two years term, would this be an evidence based decision and would the developer be entitled to appeal any decision made

 

·         Would this come back to the Planning Committee before or after the two years expires, or would it be a matter for local ward members to call it in

 

·         In relation to the existing care facility in the area, how many residents are there and what is the age range

 

·         Can you confirm the number of bedrooms in the existing care facility

 

·         The Police provided a strong objection to this application, are there any crime statistics that link directly to the existing care facility

 

·         If the Committee is minded to grant this application can permission be rescinded before the end of the two year period if anti-social behaviour is evident

 

After comments and further consideration by the 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.
