Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY AMG1

Representation ID: 906

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

Summary:

15.4 Menai Shore Proposal Summary: SLAs 8 and 9 protecting the south Menai Strait shore should be extended to include unprotected areas on the Gwynedd side of the Menai, between Foryd Bay and Felinheli, either side of the World Heritage site in Caernarfon. Apart from protecting a valuable and vulnerable local landscape, reinstating a former Landscape Conservation Area, their key role would be to provide a buffer for the Anglesey AONB on the north side of the Strait.

Representation ID: 905

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

Summary:

Provide for an SLA as a buffer area to protect the northern part pf the Llŷn AONB, comprising (for example) a 2km belt to form the southern backdrop of Yr Eifl and the Clynnog Hills.

Representation ID: 904

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

Summary:

Clarify details of and reasons for proposed changes in Western Llŷn SLA compared to former Western Llŷn LCA near Abersoch and Pwllheli.

Representation ID: 901

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

Summary:

We support the new emphasis on local protection through the SLAs (AMG1). Their role as providing buffers to protect the settings of the AONB should be emphasised and reinforced by extending SLAs close to areas of AONB without that protection. The scope and intentions of AMG2 as distinct from AMG1 need clarification.

Representation ID: 899

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

Summary:

AMG1 allows development to come forward as long as its scale and nature is appropriate and that there is no detrimental impact on the landscape.

Policy AMG1 therefore provides a positive policy basis for appropriate development come forward in the SLAs.

Bourne Leisure would like to stress that not all development has the potential to negatively impact on key landscape, public views and open spaces.

Bourne Leisure considers that AMG1 should explicitly set out that due to the need for tourism facilities to be located near the coast there is a high probability that they will also be located in a SLA. Tourist facilities are in a constant state of change, with redevelopment and site rationalisation taking place at all times, to meet the needs of the dynamic tourism market.

Representation ID: 892

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

This policy seeks to ensure that development within SLAs has "no detrimental impact on the landscape" This test and requirement is overly onerous and disproportionate to the SLA status. Also practically impossible in delivering any development not to have an impact of some form on the landscape.
Significantly the policy as drafted requires "no detrimental impact on the landscape" and does not embody the presumption in favour of sustainable development, as required by PPW.
Reference should be made to the presumption in favour of sustainable development.
Reference to "no detrimental impact" should be deleted and replaced with "no significant impact" and a further balance provided in that any impact may be outweighed by the positive effects of the development.

SUPPORT Mr John Tripp

Summary:

Delighted to see 5 new conservation areas in Anglesey.

Representation ID: 811

OBJECT Cyngor Cymuned Botwnnog (Mrs Gwenda Roberts)

Summary:

The New Coastal Landscape Conservation Area Scheme once more limits the rights of the residents of Pen Llŷn by preventing them building houses in their own area. The countryside will die as a result and depopulation can be expected - if it comes to that the unique culture and traditions of the countryside will be lost forever. Won't the Council regret losing such a valuable resource?

Representation ID: 808

OBJECT Cydbwyllgor Ymgynghorol AHNE (Cynghorydd Gruffydd Williams)

Summary:

In some places, this area (Western Llŷn SCA) abuts the AONB and protects the setting of the AONB. However, some parts of the AONB are not protected in this way. Therefore, it is believed that reference should be made to safeguarding the setting of the AONB in the relevant policies.

Representation ID: 609

OBJECT Mr Paul Madden

Summary:

The whole of Anglesey was identified under policy 31 of the Ynys Môn Local Plan as a Special Landscape Area (SLA). In the emerging Plan only a few areas are identified as an SLA and the criteria now used could apply to the whole island being a SLA. Anglesey could be awarded an enhanced global geopark status which is of equivalent status to a world heritage site. It does not offer sufficient protection against unsuitable development and reverses longstanding policy without adequate justification. Anglesey as a whole should be designated as a sla.

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

Summary:

Bourne Leisure considers that AMG1 should explicitly set out that due to the need for tourism facilities to be located near the coast there is a high probability that they will also be located in a SLA. Tourist facilities are in a constant state of change, with redevelopment and site rationalisation taking place at all times, to meet the needs of the dynamic tourism market. Bourne Leisure considers that even for sites located in the SLA, appropriate development can come forward providing that commensurate mitigation measures can be implemented to mitigate both direct and indirect impacts.

Representation ID: 375

SUPPORT Welsh Highland Railway (Mr Graham Farr)

Summary:

The Company supports the Policy as worded. See the Company's separate representation in respect of the area to which it applies.

Representation ID: 365

OBJECT Dr Morag McGrath

Summary:

It is difficult to see how any development can 'add' to the historical, visual, geographical, ecological and cultural features of an SLA.

Change the wording to 'maintain, enhance or restore the recognised character and qualities' as in 7.5.10.

Representation ID: 291

OBJECT Mr Myrddin Roberts

Summary:

The officers who are drawing up the new Joint Local Development Plan have not adequately involved local stakeholders such as community councils, farmers, landowners and residents before designating Special Landscape Areas on the map of Anglesey especially for the SLA named Beaumaris Wooded Slopes and Llangoed Vale. I happen to be the current chairman of Llanddona Community Council, so I know that no officer has attended any of our meetings. We as residents, should have been alerted to this proposed major change in policy. Meaningful dialogue, outlining the implications on businesses, land and homes has not happened.

That Policy AMG1 be deleted until such time that all stakeholders have been informed of the proposed introduction of SLA's and discussion and agreement reached by all relevant parties, especially the local community and officers of the Joint Development Plan.

Representation ID: 235

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

Summary:

There should be a positive emphasis toward existing mineral extraction sites, or extensions to those sites over new sites. Temporary environmental effects should be viewed differently to long term environmental effects.

The policy should be amended to include the words "long-term" effects thus allowing for mineral extraction in the interim and refer to restoration proposals being "in accordance" with the "long-term" objectives of the protection of special landscape areas.

Representation ID: 234

OBJECT Ellesmere Sand & Gravel Company Limited represented by Pleydell Smithyman Limited (Mr Robert Price)

Summary:

There should be a positive emphasis toward existing mineral extraction sites, or extensions to those sites over new sites. Temporary environmental effects should be viewed differently to long term environmental effects.

The policy should be amended to include the words "long-term" effects thus allowing for mineral extraction in the interim and refer to restoration proposals being "in accordance" with the "long-term" objectives of the protection of special landscape areas.

Representation ID: 54

OBJECT Oaktree Environmental Ltd (John Williams)

Summary:

The SLAs identified on the Proposals Map overlap other landscape designations which appear to have the same purpose of landscape protection. Where such overlap occurs, consideration should be given to reducing the extent of the SLA in order to avoid duplication of designated areas. In terms of our client's site, which is contained within proposed SLA 07,the landscape is characteristic of the mineral extraction industry in the area and should not be an excessive burden on the future extraction of mineral in the area

Look to reduce the area covered by SLA 07 to avoid overlap with designated RHL areas.
