OBJECT Horizon Nuclear Power (Miss Sarah Fox)
It is not clear what requirement this policy imposes on developers in relation to the "Potential Options". For example, do all options need to be considered and at least one implemented or is it permissible for no options to be implemented if evidence is presented showing that none of the options is feasible? It would be beneficial to reword this policy so that the particular obligation(s) are identified more clearly.
OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)
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.
OBJECT Bourne Leisure Ltd represented by Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (Mr Arwel Evans)
Bourne Leisure comments however that sustainable design and construction should be primarily sought via Building Regulations. However, the Company also notes that the initial design of a building in the planning process will need to consider the ability to meet Building Regulations' requirements in the future. This point of principle should be set out in the LDP, to ensure that no confusion arises. It is therefore unnecessary for the LDP to make reference to energy efficiency features and measures.
SUPPORT Cyngor Tref Ffestiniog (Mrs Ann Coxon)
Ffestiniog Town Council supports this important policy to control carbon. Exciting plans to build housing and facilities that address the needs of the future should be supported.
OBJECT Mon a Gwynedd Friends of the Earth (Mr Richard Mills)
There appears to have been a failure to identify any strategic sites where energy efficiency measures should exceed the regulatory building standard. Planning Policy Wales, edn. 5, paras. 6.6 and 6.7 is relevant in this respect, as is the letter from Carl Sargeant, dated 5 June 2014, which states that "In formulating their Local Development Plans, LPAs should continue to assess their strategic sites to identify opportunities to require higher than regulatory (sustainable building) standards". We therefore consider that, with regard to housing/energy efficiency, the Deposit JLDP fails consistency test C2 and coherence and effectiveness test CE2.
SUPPORT Adran Cynllunio a Thai, Cyngor Sir Ddinbych (Angela Loftus)
Support this detailed and workable policy.
