Additional documents:

Minutes:

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

 

S/40505

Retention of change of use of dwelling house to a residential care facility at 7 Pwll Road, Pwll, Llanelli, SA15 4BG.

 

(NOTE: Councillor D. Cundy having earlier declared an interest in this item, re-declared that interest and left the meeting during its consideration)

 

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

 

·       Credibility and accuracy of the information provided

·       Use of a room within the building as an office, including its use by the company director

·       Query on the level of sleeping accommodation provision for night staff

·       The availability of the number of existing on-street parking provision had been reduced by the number of vehicles required at the development. It was contended that the development required 6 car parking spaces, yet up to 8-11 spaces were regularly occupied by staff and visitors to the development to the detriment of other local residents

·       query on the need for the home in its current location and the resultant pressure on local services

·       lack of consultation

·       a request for residents parking had not been granted.

·       Illegal parking was occurring on double yellow lines in the area

·       noise and anti-social behaviour from the development impacted on the amenity of local residents and the enjoyment of their rear gardens

·       the premises was operating as a business and not a home

 

The applicant’s agent, Senior Development Management Officer (South) and the Senior Technician (Highways Planning Liaison) responded to the issues raised

PL/00313

Demolition of two sub-standard cottages and erection of two new cottages plus 3 glamping pods for holiday let at Sarnisel, Bronwydd, Carmarthen, SA33 6HT.

 

(NOTE: Councillor H.I. Jones declared an interest in this item and left the meeting during its consideration)

 

A representation was received accepting the proposed cottage element of the application but objecting to the glamping pods. The objection re-iterated the points detailed within the Head of Planning’s written report and included:

 

·       the siting of glamping pods within a residential area and their proximity to adjacent residential properties

·       it was estimated that between 20-25 people could stay at the accommodation at any one time which could detrimentally impact on the amenity of local residents and the enjoyment of their rear gardens by reason of noise

·       the proposed accommodation could be block booked for Hen and Stag parties

·       concern at the lack of management of the site on a daily basis as the applicant lived outside of the County

·       the proposal constituted the development of a camping site in the middle of a residential area

 

The Development Management Officer responded to the issues raised

PL/00977

Variation of Condition 2 (approved plans) and Condition 3 on S/40401 (rebuilding of storm damaged barn – retrospective) to allow the building to be used for the assembly of timber frame buildings  ...  view the full minutes text for item 3.
