Representation ID: 893

OBJECT Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Roberts)

Summary:

The policy does not set a qualifying requirement that impacts need to be "significant". It merely requires an adverse impact. This is not appropriate as any development may be deemed to have an adverse impact in some form on the landscape.
Furthermore, the policy does not allow the balancing of the economic, social or indeed other environmental benefits of a project (remediation and demolition of a contaminate site and large buildings), compared to the landscape impact arising from a small scale development.
Reference should be made to the presumption in favour of sustainable development.
The policy should be revised to require landscape impacts to be significant in undesignated areas and for these to significantly and demonstrably outweigh the economic, social or other environmental benefits before an application is refused on the basis of this policy.

OBJECT North Wales Wildlife Trust (Mr Chris Wynne)

Summary:

SLA are adequately covered by AMG1, for greater clarity AMG2 should be re-worded to protect the wider landscape and the important characteristic features of the local landscapes of Gwynedd and Anglesey. Remove reference to SLA and ensure policy relates to wider landscape.

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. Suggest duplication with Policy AMG1.

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. Suggest potential merge with Policy AMG1.
