Vale Planning Place Stop Notice

posted 7 Aug 2012, 11:21 by Ian Perry
The Vale Council have recently place a stop notice on work at Vianshill Farm, just off the A48 by the downs.

Temporary planning permission had been previously granted for an agricultural improvement operation which expired in March 2012.    "The principal breach of planning control relates to the ‘agricultural improvement operations’ being undertaken on the site, namely the tipping of waste material in the form of recycled construction rubble on the land prior to reinstating the sub and top soil. Whilst the Local Planning Authority has previously approved a temporary consent on the site this has now expired.  Moreover, the site area as approved under that application has been exceeded by a considerable degree, and therefore, the operation as a whole does not therefore benefit from planning permission."

The reasons given by Vale planning officers for the Stop Order, listed in their report to the Planning Committee on July 5, 2012 are as follows:
 
(1)      In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority, the engineering and tipping operation is considered to be an unacceptable and unjustified form of development in the open countryside and this special landscape area.  The 
development is considered to have a detrimental effect on the character, and appearance of the countryside contrary to Policies ENV1, ENV2, ENV4, ENV10, ENV16, ENV27, ENV29, EMP8, WAST1, WAST2 & WAST4 of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales (February 2011), Technical Advice Note 6 (July 2010) on Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities and Technical Advice Note 21 (2001) on Waste.  
 
(2)      In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority, the use of the land for the storage of scalpings/plaining aggregates is considered to be unacceptable and unjustified form of use in the open countryside and this special landscape area.  The use is considered to have a detrimental effect on the appearance and character of the open countryside contrary to Policies ENV1, ENV2, ENV4, ENV10, ENV16, ENV27, ENV29, EMP8, WAST1, WAST2 & WAST4 of the Vale of Glamorgan Unitary Development Plan and the advice given in Planning Policy Wales (2011), Technical Advice Note 6 (2010) on Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities and Technical Advice Note 21 (2001) on Waste.
