Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY TWR4

Representation ID: 1400

OBJECT Cyng/Counc Alwyn Gruffydd

Summary:

The view is that extending the holiday season does not contribute substantially to
the promotion of sustainable communities, and that the few benefits are outweighed by the negative effects of such permissions, such as the impact on the linguistic nature of communities and the pressure on public services.

Need to further consider the policy of opening for 12 months.

Representation ID: 795

OBJECT Caravan Club represented by Savills (Duncan Parr)

Summary:

In summary the policies relating to tourist accommodating are considered to be overly restrictive and lacking in clarity on the type of development which is acceptable on existing touring caravan sites. The policy should be amended to ensure that the plan does not effect the ability of local tourist businesses from adapting to the changing needs of the visitor economy and does not impact on the future economic viability of these businesses which support local economies, employments and communities.

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

Summary:

The goal of extending the tourist season is sensible, but presents problems in the caravan sector. Allowing all-year use of static caravans as opposed to the previously established 10.5 month limit makes no difference to their visual impact and responds to established precedents. However, we share concerns that there is insufficient capacity to monitor and enforce genuine holiday use
and prevent permanent residential occupancy, contrary to intended policy. The potential economic benefits of 6 weeks of extra use in the low season seem unlikely to justify these risks. On the other hand, policies to limit holiday use of statics to 28 days at a time or 3 months/year also seem to us arbitrary, impractical and unenforceable.

Scrap limitations on caravan holiday use as these are unworkable

OBJECT Cydbwyllgor Ymgynghorol AHNE (Cynghorydd Gruffydd Williams)

Summary:

There was concern about allowing static caravan/chalet sites to remain open for 12 months a year. There are insufficient resources to be able to monitor the situation and people could live permanently in the units - without paying tax.

Representation ID: 614

OBJECT Hunaniaith (Debbie A. Williams Jones)

Summary:

There is no economic benefit from extending the holiday season to 12 months which would contribute towards securing sustainable communities.

Neither can the Welsh language cope with the negative impact of extending the holiday season which could mean a substantial increase in the population of some communities, and the little advantage to be had from that is outweighed by the negative effects of such permissions - such as the effect on the linguistic nature of communities, and the pressure on public services.

There is a need to reconsider the policy of permitting caravan and chalet sites to remain open for 12 months.

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

Summary:

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.

Representation ID: 97

SUPPORT BH&HPA represented by Savills (UK) Limited (Mr David Middleton)

Summary:

We would wish to register our support to Policy TWR4 as it complies with the aims and objectives of Planning Policy Wales (PPW) and is in accordance with similar development plan policies in neighbouring Local Planning Authorities which support and encourage extended holiday occupancy periods. The Policy is sound and fulfils all of the required tests of soundness.
