Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY TWR2

Representation ID: 1072

OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)

Summary:

The policy would be strengthened with an explanation of where the Councils consider 'over-concentration' (Clause 8) of certain accommodation might be a risk.

Representation ID: 742

OBJECT Tom Brooks

Summary:

Much of the loss of housing units for local families has been created by the conversion of existing buildings into "permenantly serviced and self-serviced holiday accommodation". This is a deeply damaging trend for villages such as Borth-y-Gest. TWR2 nees amending to protect against any further loss of family accommodation. It currently carries a presumption of granting permission and the caveats are non specific and undefinable.

TWR2 should be amended to delete point 2 (conversion of exiting buildings). A new policy should be added to permit conversion of existing buildings only in the higher ranked settlements in the settlement strategy.

Representation ID: 344

OBJECT Mr Geoff Wood represented by WYG (Mrs Diane Ellis)

Summary:

Support the principle of the policy and in particular part 4, however it does not take account of preserving vernacular buildings with heritage value. In some circumstances, these can be viably developed to help preserve local character and / or Welsh heritage.

Amend part 4 to read "In the case of new build accommodation, that the development is located within a development boundary, or makes use of a suitable previously developed site or involves the reuse of a heritage asset that helps preserve local character and/or the Welsh culture"

OBJECT Mr Geoff Wood represented by WYG (Mrs Diane Ellis)

Summary:

It is difficult to quantify what an over-concentration of holiday accommodation is, which leads to a lack of certainty for applicants.

Delete or amend part 8 "That the development does not lead to an overÔÇÉconcentration of such accommodation within the area."

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

Recreation and tourism uses are viable end uses of previously used land at mineral extraction sites that when restored can provide facilities such as hotel opportunities, camping sites, woodland lodges and caravan parks where appropriate.
