Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY PCYFF1

Representation ID: 1136

OBJECT Horizon Nuclear Power (Miss Sarah Fox)

Summary:

Residual concerns that criterion 3 is more restrictive in terms development siting than other sections of the Plan. It is also noted that Policy PS15 relates exclusively to housing whereas the wording of PCYFF1 implies that it relates to all forms of development, which risks creating confusion.  Criterion 4 is considered inconsistent with the drafting of the other criteria.  Criteria 9 and 10 requirements are dealt with elsewhere in the Plan and could be deleted here.  Criterion 14 is not sufficiently clear.

OBJECT Ministry of Defence (MOD Safeguarding

Summary:

The MODs principle concern with respect to development in Anglesey and Gwynedd is ensuring that structures, particularly tall buildings do not cause an obstruction to air traffic movements at MOD aerodromes or compromise the operation of air navigational transmitter/ receiver facilities located in the area. The MOD height and technical safeguarding zones for the main operational base of RAF Valley and Mona extends over the area of Anglesey. The borough is also covered by the statutory birdsrike safeguarding zone encompassing RAF Valley and Mona. Therefore if/when development is progressed the MOD DIO should be consulted to ensure an accurate and effective assessment is carried out. Gwynedd does not fall within any statutory safeguarding consultation zones.

OBJECT Mr John Tripp

Summary:

The uplands - a lot are overgrazed. Would like to see more 'regreening' to stop the immediate run off and flooding. Also, Co2 collect with trees.

Representation ID: 774

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

This policy provides a 14 part multi criteria policy, and the first and second requirements are that "A proposal must comply with all relevant policies of the Plan", and "must comply with national planning policy and guidance." This is considered to be an impossible task, because the Policy does not:
* embody the presumption in favour of sustainable development and is not positively prepared.
* allow for any application of the key requirement of planning, which is the balance of often competing and conflicting objectives, thus considering, what policies are of key relevance, what weight should be given to competing objectives and how does a proposal comply with the "presumption in favour of sustainable development of the Welsh Government", and
* it replicates other policies in the Plan e.g. landscape, highways, design etc.
The Policy needs to be rewritten in a positively prepared manner with a presumption in favour of sustainable development.

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

Summary:

Criterion 1 We have been unable to locate online detailed Seascape Character Area
Assessments

Representation ID: 772

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

Summary:

Criterion 4 Housing density. While agreeing that dense settlement can be efficient in terms of land use etc. the impression on the landscape of dense estates of detached houses is alien to
the traditional landscape in North Wales where settlement has not been significantly concentrated, except in 19th century quarrying areas. (See PCYFF2) If density is to be encouraged it should be through the building of terraces, rather than little boxes. The terrace or even semi-detached units produce much better proportioned building blocks. The social (and economic) value of gardens should not be forgotten.

SUPPORT Welsh Highland Railway (Mr Graham Farr)

Summary:

Support.

Representation ID: 399

SUPPORT Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (Mr Dewi Griffiths )

Summary:

DCWW support the provision within this policy that planning permission will be refused where the proposed development would have an unacceptable adverse impact upon the health, safety or amenity of occupiers of local residences, other land and property uses or characteristics of the locality due to drainage pollution.

Representation ID: 307

OBJECT North Wales Wildlife Trust (Mr Chris Wynne)

Summary:

Greater emphasis should be given to the protection of the natural environment in this policy to reflect the importance of this issue throughout the LDP. Add point 15 "natural environment".

Representation ID: 172

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

Summary:

General policy likely to be aimed at urban development but does not specify. There is no recognition of the particular circumstances of mineral working and the locational need for minerals to be worked where they are found. Suggest a hierarchy for assessing environmental effects of development proposals as not all environmental assets are of the same value. If applied too rigidly to mineral extraction sites then there is a risk of unnecessary sterilisation.

The policy should 'endeavour' to achieve the aims of the policy. Exceptionally some developments such as minerals will not be able to comply with the aspirations of the policy but those schemes should nevertheless still be permissible. Suggest start the policy with "Where relevant all proposals should endeavour ..." then delete points 1, 2 and 8 as they are unwieldy and unnecessary.

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr Mark Harris)

Summary:

Should not use the word 'must' as this does not allow the flexibility for other material planning considerations to form part of the determination process. This ability to consider other material planning considerations is a fundamental part of national planning legislation.

Change the word 'must' to 'should' on all the points where it is used.

Representation ID: 123

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr Mark Harris)

Summary:

At point 4 the ability to build at a lower density needs to be not only based on local circumstances but also needs to take account of site constraints such as levels on sites or service easements.

Add to the wording in brackets at point 4 after local add ' or site constraints'
