To consider planning applications deferred at previous Meetings of the Committee pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the Report of the Corporate Lead Officer – Economy and Regeneration  on the following planning applications which had been considered at a previous meeting and which required further consideration by the Committee:-

 

 

          

A200862 Erection of a dwelling, Tycoch, Trefenter, Aberystwyth

 

To APPROVE the application subject to a Section 106 for an affordable dwelling.

 

 

Members were of the opinion that the application could be approved for the following reasons:-

 

·       In terms of meeting the policy criteria in relation to its location, Members were of the opinion that the application site was considered to be in Trefenter which was a recognised settlement.

·       Whilst there were a limited number of dwellings in the immediate area with no clear built-up area, it was made up of a small number of groups of houses that form a settlement.

·        Development of a small gap, adjacent to an existing dwelling and in close proximity to others, would not be ‘open countryside’ in the sense of undulating fields and an uninterrupted landscape but one that conforms and respects the character of the settlement.

·       There were two properties to the north of the application site and a cluster of properties nearby. The Panel was of the opinion that the settlement was a community rather than village based which was a recognised settlement even if dwellings were dispersed.

·       This application was an affordable dwelling which was welcomed within this settlement

·      The dwelling location followed the pattern of original dwellings in Ceredigion, and Planning Policy Wales stated that there was discretion with the planning authority to consider this

           _____________________________________________________________________

          

A201050 Erection of a dwelling to include installation of vehicular access and treatment plant, Land Adjacent To Awel Y Mynydd, Pisgah, Aberystwyth

 

To DEFER determination of the application in order to allow for the submission and           consideration of revised plans for an affordable dwelling, with the Corporate Lead Officer for Economy and Regeneration being authorised to approve the application if the plans for an affordable home are acceptable and to refuse if negotiations fail.

If approved, the permission would also be subject to a S.106 to secure the affordable home in perpetuity.

 

          _____________________________________________________________________

 

A210077 Demolition of existing stables building and erection of a residential dwelling, including parking, landscaping and ancillary works, Land at Tyn-y-Cae, Talybont

 

To REFUSE the application as being contrary to policies S01, S04, S05 of the Ceredigion Local Development Plan 2007 -2022.
