PL/03227

Demolition of existing warehouse and office building and redevelopment of the site to provide a showroom, warehouse, and office building for a plumbing and heating business at Sunny Mead, Llanybydder SA40 9RB

 

(NOTE: AT 1.00 p.m. and in accordance with Corporate Procedure Rule 23, the Committee suspended Standing Orders during consideration of this to enable the meeting to continue beyond three hours)  

PL/03333

Creation of 10 additional traveller pitches to the west of PL/00775 (Plots 5-14) with alternative layout, ecological and landscape enhancements and extension to approved internal access road (Phase III) at land at Maes y Dderwen, Llangennech, Llanelli, SA14 8UW

  

 

3.2         RESOLVED that the Committee was minded to approve the following planning application, contrary to the Head of Place and Sustainability’s recommendation to refuse for the following reasons:-

 

(i)           The site was located close to the nearest defined settlement of Glanamman and;

(ii)         the development would help promote walking and cycling and support the principles of Active Travel:-

 

and that based on its decision:

 

·                    The Application be advertised as a Departure to the Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan.

·                    If, following the expiration of the notice period for the Departure, no objections were received, delegated authority be granted to the Head of Place and Sustainability to issue the Decision Notice subject to appropriate conditions.

 

PL/04504

We would like to erect 3 number shepherd huts on land adjacent to our dwelling. We intend to rent out the huts as holiday lets (Re-submission of PL/03609 Refused 28.94.22) at Bryngwinau, Llandyfan, Ammanford, SA18 2UD

 

(NOTE: Mr I.R. Llewellyn, Forward Planning Manager, having previously declared an interest in this application, re-itereated that interest and left the Chamber during its consideration by the Committee)

 

A representation was received from the local member in support of the application on the basis it was considered the application fell within Policy TSM2 of the Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan as the proposed huts were similar to touring caravans, were fitted with wheels and were therefore capable of being towed, similar applications had been approved elsewhere within the County, the adjacent hedgerow had been reduced to 2.4m in height, no objections had been received to the proposal, the land in question was unsuitable for farming and lended itself to diversification. If granted, the application would help support the local tourism industry by providing three huts for rent for two thirds of the year and generate £54k into the community

 

In considering the application references were made by the Committee to the small scale nature of the proposed development. Views were expressed that if, granted the application would not adversely impact on the open countryside, and although the location was isolated, it was within walking distance of the nearest settlement and would promote tourism
