Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - STRATEGIC POLICY PS6

Representation ID: 1057

OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)

Summary:

The renewable energy assessment could be used to improve the policy wording for PS6 and PCYFF4, as these stand they lack clarity. The energy assessment could make it clear what is expected and to what scale/ type of development the policies apply.

Representation ID: 859

SUPPORT Bangor Civic Society 1 (Don Mathew)

Summary:

Policy PS6 is supported

Representation ID: 846

OBJECT Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (Mr Arwel Evans)

Summary:

Bourne Leisure supports sustainable development in its buildings, venues and accommodation units. All new buildings, refurbishments of existing venues and the company's hire fleet holiday homes incorporate a number of features designed to achieve sustainable development. It is considered that sustainable design and construction should be primarily sought via Building Regulations. It is proposed that the Plan should make it clear that the initial design of a building will need to consider the ability to meet Building Regulations' requirements in the future. Based on the fact that TAN22 was cancelled it is unnecessary for the Plan to make reference to energy efficiency features and measures.

Representation ID: 845

OBJECT Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (Mr Arwel Evans)

Summary:

It is considered that the Plan should recognise that specific uses, such as tourism uses, are often already sited on the coast or in river floodplains and that such uses require to be located adjacent to water in order to continue to attract visitors. It should therefore allow for proposals for improvements/ expansion of existing tourism accommodation and facilities on a more flexible basis to new development in such locations; such flexible considerations should include taking account of the specific characteristics of particular and current uses and the merits of each individual proposal as it relates to the existing development.

Representation ID: 769

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

Summary:

The proposed energy hierarchy is fully supported.

Representation ID: 661

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

Summary:

We agree that tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions is a key objective. We support the 'energy hierarchy' concept proposed in PS6 where ranked priority is given to 1) reducing need 2) efficient use and supply, before 3) using renewable energy. We also agree that renewable energy should be used wherever 'practical and viable' and should be 'consistent with the need to engage and involve local communities, protect visual amenities, the natural, built and historic environment and the landscape'.

OBJECT Bourne Leisure Ltd represented by Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (Mr Arwel Evans)

Summary:

The Local Plan should recognise that specific uses, such as tourism uses, are often already sited on the coast or in river floodplains and that such uses require to be located adjacent to water in order to continue to attract visitors. The Local Plan should therefore allow for proposals for the improvement/expansion of existing tourism accommodation and facilities to be considered on a more flexible basis to new developments in such locations.

Representation ID: 398

SUPPORT Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (Mr Dewi Griffiths )

Summary:

DCWW support the inclusion of this policy and the requirement placed upon developers to aim for the highest possible standard in terms of water efficiency and the use of sustainable drainage systems. The tackling of surface water at source is a vital component of sustainable development and will go a long way to mitigate against overloading sewers which can ultimately lead to flooding. The Floods and Water Management Act 2010 reinforces the obligations for developers to incorporate sustainable drainage systems as part of their developments.

Representation ID: 170

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

Summary:

Again general policy lacking definition of where it applies. If considered applies to mineral extraction sites suggest changes as set out below.

Suggest a hierarchy for assessing effects of development proposals and notwithstanding other policies in the development plan.
At point 6 start "Where possible ..."
At point 10 start "Where possible ..."

Representation ID: 169

OBJECT Ellesmere Sand & Gravel Company Limited represented by Pleydell Smithyman Limited (Mr Robert Price)

Summary:

Again general policy lacking definition of where it applies. If considered applies to mineral extraction sites suggest changes as set out below.

Suggest a hierarchy for assessing effects of development proposals and notwithstanding other policies in the development plan.

At point 10 start "Where possible ..."

Representation ID: 126

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr Mark Harris)

Summary:

It is not clear how these requirements link to Building Regulations. If as appears they may be looking to achieve higher standards than Building Regulations then this is likely to affect the viability of a scheme. Has the financial impact of meeting these requirements been allowed for in the viability testing of housing/ affordable housing delivery?
