Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY TWR5

Representation ID: 788

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

Summary:

We oppose the continuation of a permissive policy for touring caravan sites in the most sensitive landscape areas, in the absence of evidence regarding its impact. We believe the visual impact of tourers, including cumulative impact, is being underestimated and it risks being as great as that acknowledged for static sites in the past. As a precautionary policy we seek a moratorium on new touring sites within AONBs, SLAs and within 2 km of the coast and some limitation on the size of extensions of existing sites. We support policies for extension of existing sites, provided limits are specified, in exchange for genuine environmental improvements, and provided these are actually
monitored and enforced.

OBJECT Cydbwyllgor Ymgynghorol AHNE (Cynghorydd Gruffydd Williams)

Summary:

Members had noticed an increase in applications and considerable pressure from this type of development in the Llŷn area. We questioned whether there was a basis for the policy and had an analysis been made of the increase in units/the effect of new developments? We believe the policy should be more restrictive within and near the designated area.

We believe that priority should be given to monitoring compliance with planning permissions, planning conditions, landscaping conditions and conditions on occupancy.

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.

Representation ID: 226

SUPPORT Ellesmere Sand & Gravel Company 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: 199

OBJECT Kingsbridge Caravan Park (Mr Andrew Bate)

Summary:

Touring caravan parks should be allowed to store caravans for customers provided they are located in unobtrusive areas.

This is a key element of the touring park activity and does not appear to be addressed in the policy document.Storage of units has the advantage of reducing disruption on main roads and country lanes and above all reduces vehicle emissions by way of improved fuel economy of the vehicle which would otherwise be towing a caravan.

Representation ID: 98

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

Summary:

Whilst draft Policy TWR5 is generally accepted, the imposition of criterion 7 fails to meet the tests of soundness set down for the LDP. There is no planning reason for the imposition of limitation on length of stay and this would unreasonably dictate how a park is operated. The requirement could not be enforced or monitored and is not in accordance with other local planning policies in adjoining areas. It is therefore requested that this element of Policy TWR5 is removed. In order for Policy TWR5 to be 'sound' the accompanying text should be amended. See full submission for detailed changes suggested.
