Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - STRATEGIC POLICY PS10

Representation ID: 1610

SUPPORT Dwr Cymru Welsh Water (Mr Dewi Griffiths )

Summary:

* The proposed employment allocations represent a substantial area of land for development for which the potential demands are unknown at present. It is essential that we understand these demands in order to allow us to assess the impact on our assets. It may be necessary for water and sewerage modelling assessments to be undertaken to establish how we would provide the water supply and where the proposed development could connect to the public sewerage system. At this moment in time, our response is on the basis of domestic demands based on the area and location of the proposed allocations.

Summary:

NFU Wales would like to make the following general comments about the Development Management Policies included in the draft Plan. The Plan should:

2 Promote not farming growth and diversification
3 Acknowledge the value of small holdings in Anglesey and Gwynedd as a way that young farmers can start and develop businesses.
4 Acknowledge the value of agriculture and local food businesses to the local economy, employment opportunities and the Welsh language.

Representation ID: 1412

Representation ID: 1301

OBJECT Cyngor Dinas Bangor (Mr Gwyn Hughes)

Summary:

The City Council is of the opinion that existing sites in Bangor accommodating such enterprises should be protected from redevelopment. Examples would be the small units at the rear of the upper part of the High Street and Station Road and the site between Sackville Road and Mentec.

More sites should be allocated for such uses in the JLDP so that small business start-ups would be encouraged in the interest of nurturing enterprise in the local economy.

Representation ID: 1166

OBJECT Horizon Nuclear Power (Miss Sarah Fox)

Summary:

Concerns about the lack of flexibility in relation to non-employment related development (B1, B2 and B8) on sites covered by the policy, particularly in relation to a change of use for legacy (e.g. to tourism) as this would reduce the overall availability of B1, B2 and B8 sites and therefore run counter to the intention for these to be employment sites. However, rather than seek for specific amendments to policies PS10, CYF1 and CYF2 however, Horizon proposes to rely on the Wylfa Newydd specific policies which will be the relevant policies against which to determine its associated development applications.

Representation ID: 1046

OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)

Summary:

Welsh Government supports economic growth however, it is crucial that this economic growth meet the authorities' objectives. The authorities should clarify that oversupplying the market to this extent (approximately by 300ha) will not have negative implications for land values; nor hinder development from coming forward or jeopardise growth aspirations.

Representation ID: 902

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

Summary:

PS10 is inconsistent with the remainder of the LDP as it doesn't recognise the significant economic benefit that tourism brings to the local area. Paragraph 4.3 states that tourists/visitors make an important contribution to the local economy. Bourne Leisure therefore maintains that PS10 should reflect the significant contribution that tourism makes to the local economy.

Recognition of the important role of tourism within Strategic Policy PS10 is also necessary to ensure consistency with PPW (para 11.1.1). It would also accord with the Gwynedd Destination Management Plan (2013 - 2020).

Bourne Leisure therefore comments that specific reference should be added to PS10 to reflect the important role that tourism plays in ensuring a flourishing economy.

Representation ID: 828

OBJECT Cyngor Cymuned Llanystumdwy (Mr Richard J Roberts)

Summary:

We are glad that Llanystumdwy Agri Park has been included as Secondary Site but we consider that other sites should be considered, e.g. the old Laundry at Afonwen.

We consider that more should be done to retain industrial sites when they change hands and that the Plan does not do enough to support small businesses, particularly family businesses in the countryside.

Representation ID: 825

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

Summary:

PS10 Comment on conclusion of needs for employment land from alternative studies.

Representation ID: 803

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

Based on the allocated 807 ha of employment land and premises within the Deposit LDP there is over 66 years of employment land and premises supply within the Plan area.
Whilst it is recognised that Wylfa Newydd could have a significant economic impact on the need and demand for employment land and premises, there will not be the need for this level of employment land or premises.
The Plan therefore significantly over allocates and protects employment land premises and particularly sites which are unlikely to deliver employment due to the sites not meeting the needs of industry, or subject to signifcant site constraints.
The Policy therefore does not comply with Test of Soundness C2 as it does not comply with Planning Policy Wales & CE2 as it is not realistic having regard to other alternatives or based upon credible evidence.

The policy should be amended to only include sufficient available, suitable and deliverable employment land needed for the duration of the Plan Period.

Representation ID: 455

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

Summary:

Specific reference should be added to PS10 to reflect the important role that tourism plays in ensuring a flourishing economy. A 4th bullet point should be added to read:

"4. Supporting new and existing tourism development/redevelopment where appropriate, in order to take full advantage of the economic benefit that tourism development brings to the Local Plan area."
