Minutes:

The Senior Development Management Officer (South) referred to the private site visit undertaken by the Committee earlier that day (minute 4.1 of the Planning Committee held on the 22nd August, 2019 refers), the purpose of which was to enable the Committee to view the site in light of concerns raised locally regarding the impact on the highway and local amenities. He referred, with the aid of PowerPoint slides, to the written report of the Head of Planning which provided an appraisal of the site together with a description of the proposed development, a summary of consultation responses received and information relating to the local and national policies relevant to the assessment of the application. He advised that the Head of Planning was recommending approval of the application for the reasons detailed within the written report.

 

Representations were received from the Local Member and residents objecting to the application re-iterating the objections detailed within the Head of Planning’s report. The main areas of concern being the potential to flooding and foul drainage, the impact on infrastructure, highway and pedestrian safety, and amenities. The proposal was therefore considered by the objectors to be contrary to Policies TR1, TR3, EQ5, TAN 15, TAN 20 and TAN 24.

 

The Senior Development Management Officer (South) and the applicant’s agent responded to the issues raised by the objectors.

 

RESOLVED that Planning Application S/21597 be refused, contrary to the recommendation of the Head of Planning on the following basis:-

 

3.1.1   Contrary to Policies TR1 and TR3, traffic congestion and inadequate access to site; contrary to Policy EQ5, the impact on Welsh Language and contrary to TAN 5 ecological impact (dormice).
