Minutes:

5.1   RESOLVED that the following planning application be granted subject to the conditions detailed within the Report/Addendum of the Head of Planning and or reported at the meeting:-

 

W/37254

Planning application to erect a straw-bedded young-stock building, maternity building, silage clamp, concrete yard areas and reprofiled lagoon (part retrospective) at Wernolau Farm, Llangynog, Carmarthen, SA33 5BN;

 

Representations were received objecting to the application which re-iterated the points detailed within the Head of Planning’s written report included concerns in relation to:

 

·                 Farm has a history of non-compliance of planning conditions;

·                 The farm operates on an industrial scale linked to satellite farms;

·                 An anaerobic digester should be installed;

·                 Increased diesel emissions from an undeclared increase in HGV movements;

·                 The farm is already too big and the volume of heavy lorries has already affected the quality of life of local residents;

·                 The increase in livestock will exacerbate the pollution in the area with both slurry and sediment. The slurry lagoons will affect health of local residents;

·                 Retrospective planning permission has previously been granted on the farm and the current application is also part retrospective;

·                 Residents’ concerns have been dismissed to the detriment of the highway network, air quality and noise pollution;

·                 Effect on human health.

·                 Effect on tourism – fishing has been affected;

·                 Effect on small tourist ventures in the area.

 

The applicant, the Development Management Officer and Senior Technician (Highways Planning Liaison) responded to the issues raised.
