Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - STRATEGIC POLICY PS5

Representation ID: 1135

OBJECT Horizon Nuclear Power (Miss Sarah Fox)

Summary:

Horizon considers that it would be beneficial to remove some of the repetition, circularity and potential inconsistencies arising from references to other policies. For example, criteria 5, 6, 16, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 simply cross refer to other policies which will apply to and control these matters.

OBJECT Welsh Slate Ltd represented by SLR Consulting Limited (John Hill)

Summary:

Whilst listing 13 objectives there is a total failure to include any reference to minerals, regardless of any reference/s to Strategic Policy PS18.

Representation ID: 853

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

We note that there is no policy, which expresses in overall terms and from which all policies flow that provides a presumption in favour of sustainable development.
This is a fundamental of the approach of the Welsh Government and PPW.
There is a sustainable development policy, Policy PS5, however this does not provide a "presumption in favour of sustainable development."
This omission is a stark omission and significant oversight which goes to the heart of the policies and approach of the Plan.A policy providing a presumption in favour of sustainable development.

Representation ID: 852

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

This is a 14-part policy, requiring compliance with a plethora of issues. It does not embody a presumption in favour of sustainable development set out in PPW. It does not allow the balancing of the benefits of development to the social, economic and indeed environmental (remediation and redevelopment of previously developed and contaminated site for example) themes with any adverse impacts. It is a a largely negatively worded policy. PPW provides a clear presumption in favour of sustainable development. It does not embody any aspect of this approach and should be rewritten to provide a positive policy and presumption in favour of sustainable development.It should be re-worded in order to provide a positive policy and a pressumption in support of sustainable development.

OBJECT Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (Mr Noel Davey)

Summary:

Criterion 13 Improve sense by inserting 'car' and deleting 'means of' : 'Reduce the need to travel by car and encourage the opportunities for all users to travel when required as often as possible by means of alternative modes'.

Representation ID: 767

OBJECT Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (Mr Noel Davey)

Summary:

PS5 #4 'Promote greater self---containment of Centres and Villages by contributing to balanced communities that are supported by sufficient services; cultural, arts, sporting and entertainment activities; a varied range of employment opportunities; physical and social infrastructure; and a choice of modes of travel;' This approach will clash with pressure for 'economies of scale' e.g. the current arguments about concentration of services in N Wales NHS.

OBJECT Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (Mr Noel Davey)

Summary:

All development proposals are required to fulfil nine objectives. We fully agree with the objectives in principle but do not see how all proposals, such as small extension to houses, could demonstrate in practice how they would contribute to all of them, especially #6 'preserve and 'enhance' the quality of .. assets' and #7 protect and' improve' the quality of the natural environment. There is probably a need to add some qualifier e.g. 'wherever possible'. It is noted that the introduction of objectives #10-14 does include the words 'proposals should also where appropriate:'

SUPPORT Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (Mr Dewi Griffiths )

Summary:

DCWW support the inclusion of this policy and its emphasis upon reducing the amount of water used and wasted, and reducing the effect on water resources and quality, and maximising the use of sustainable drainage schemes. We fully support the promotion of sustainable development and look to your authority to ensure that appropriate designs include water efficiency, water conservation and sustainable drainage to comply with high standards of the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM.

OBJECT Lafarge Tarmac Trading Limited represented by Pleydell Smithyman Limited (Mr Robert Price)

Summary:

This general policy lacks clarity as to where it applies e.g. not all landscapes and biodiversity assets are of the same value and it will not always be possible to 'protect and enhance' assets. If it is considered to apply to mineral extraction sites suggest changes as set out below.

Suggest a hierarchy for assessing environmental effects of development proposals (not all landscapes and biodiversity assets are of the same value) and notwithstanding other policies in the development plan.
At point 3 include former quarry sites in definition of previously developed land and remove reference to development boundaries.
At points 6 and 7 start "Where possible ..."

SUPPORT CPERA (Cynghorydd Elin Walker Jones)

Summary:

Construction should occur on brownfield sites and not on greenfield sites. It is recommended to look at how to reuse brownfield sites prior to new building on greenfield sites, including demolishing housing if they are not fit for purpose. Better use should be made of brownfield sites in order to safeguard greenfield sites and fields. For example, there is an area near the Dewi Sant precinct roundabout which is deserted due to demolishing housing; Hendrewen; corner site opposite Ysbyty Gwynedd. e.g. flats could be built near the Dewi Sant precinct with a parking floor to avoid flood problems.
