OBJECT Cyng/Counc Alwyn Gruffydd
The provision of industrial land needs to be extended beyond the main centres to expand growth across the County. This would be a method of safeguarding communities by taking advantage of economic vitality.
OBJECT Horizon Nuclear Power (Miss Sarah Fox)
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.
OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)
Further clarification is required to:
1. explain why the plan makes provision for approximately 478ha compared to a need for approximately 180ha of employment land as set out in the employment land review.
2. demonstrate that the implications of this over allocation for housing provision and the deliverability of the sites has been considered.
3. demonstrate that the employment assessment is in accordance with Welsh Government's "TAN 23: Economic Development (2014)"
4. explain what the implications would be on types of jobs (skills and salaries) and homes if land take were to exceed the 180ha over the plan period and whether the assessment work, especially the WLIA has taken account of this over-allocation.
OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)
Further clarification is required on how the distribution of employment sites relate to the provision for housing. The housing commitments/ allocations are based on a hierarchy of settlements and it would be helpful if the employment sites could be presented in a similar manner. It would also be helpful if further information could be provided on how the authorities have considered the inter-linkages between the three main strategic employment sites along the A55 corridor, and that these are not in competition with each other and therefore creating problems of deliverability.
OBJECT Cyngor Cymuned Pentir (Mr Dilwyn Pritchard)
The Council is concerned that an industrial site is proposed in the Penrhosgarnedd area. The Council doesn't object to creating more employment sites, but it was considered that this would add to the area's hustle and bustle. It must be remembered that a lot of money has been spent during the last decade to develop Bryn Cegin Estate and the reasonable steps would be to get this site operational. It could also house the new science park being proposed for Gaerwen, Anglesey.
OBJECT Mr John Tripp
Aim for Holyhead to develop industry:
* explore Wylfa B
* main port from Ireland
OBJECT Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales (Mr Noel Davey)
CYF1 Comment on difference between safeguarded amount and target take-up rate of employment land.
SUPPORT Menter Iaith Bangor (Mrs Branwen Thomas)
Fair employment is crucial to provide a basis for a stable community in Bangor - ensuring the success of the Welsh language. Welcoming the scheme that proposes to safeguard land and units on the existing employment sites in Bangor.
There is a great need for a further development.
Recommend establishing a committee to examine the 21st century needs of the city of Bangor as one entity. There is a need to secure dwellings, infrastructure, employment and education opportunities, a shopping centre, a clean environment and appropriate amenities for the residents and all users of the city.
There is a need for the Committee to include representation of friends of the city.
OBJECT First Investments Ltd
FIL object to the current wording of this policy which, instead of promoting investment and improvements to existing employment space, will result in, at best, retaining the status quo at Peblig Mill Industrial Estate owned which is characterised by old and, in some cases, defunct employment floorspace with a high proportion of vacancies. The policy should instead promote investment in existing employment stock and where necessary, promote alternative uses on the Peblig site that are capable of delivering investment and improvements to the overall quality of employment floorspace.
FIL request that the policy be amended to include the following changes;
Recognise the viability and vacancy issues in relation to this site and support the redevelopment of existing sites in need of investment;
Promote alternative uses where they are able to support such redevelopment/investment at the Peblig site potentially through a link to an amended draft Policy CYF4;
Remove hierarchal approach to employment allocations, particularly given the differences in definitions between the Evidence Base and Draft Policy
