SUBMISSION TO ACCOMPANY APPLICATION FOR RENEWAL OF TEMP. PERMISSION

 

Brithdir Mawr and this Roundhouse are one of six case studies chosen by Land Use Consultants and the University of the West of England for their study on Low Impact Developments in Wales.This study is in process at the moment - it was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly and is part funded by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

 

I respectfully request that until such time that the report of the consultants has been submitted, deliberated in the Welsh Assembly, and any new guidelines have been issued to planning authorities in Wales, this building and its use should be safeguarded rather than demolished.I am therefore asking for a temporary renewal for 2 years, during which period I am happy to waive any permitted development rights.

 

If the benefits of this course of action are not recommended by the officers or accepted by the committee, I would appreciate the opportunity, before a final decision is taken, to show the committee round this farm on a site visit, explain the context of our principles of nature conservation to members, and show them this low-impact house.I understand that some members were reluctant to visit this site while any enforcement proceedings were outstanding, and trust that now all issues have been cleared such a visit would be beneficial.

 

Tony Wrench.

Dear Mr Wrench

I refer to the above mentioned planning application and in particular to your submission in support of the same. In that you request that the planning permission be granted for a further two years to await receipt of new guidelines which may or may not come from the Welsh Assembly following its consideration of the research project into Low Impact Development. I have discussed the issue with the consultants working on the research project who assure me that their work is complete and there is no need for the round house to be retained from their point of view. They have inspected the site, discussed the project with you all and are now preparing their final report.

Therefore the planning application has to be considered against current planning policy . The Authority cannot consider it against what might or might not happen in policy within the National Park as a result of the research project.

I note your request that the Committee visit the site and will certainly put that to them. However I assume that the case not being made, in the light of the comments above, is based on the same justification that was made to the Inspector at the appeal. Members may well consider that he looked closely into all the issues and could find no justification for the retention of the dwelling and feel that a further visit is unnecessary.

If you wish to make any other case in support of the retention of the dwelling please donít hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,
Catherine Milner
Development Control Officer

Dear Ms Milner

RETENTION OF ROUNDHOUSE

 

Thank you for your reply.I may make further representations as you suggest, but I am still hoping to keep it simple.At this stage, therefore, a couple of points:

 

1. I also asked that I be allowed to speak to the committee in person.

2. I understand that the Pembrokeshire/PCNP UDP draft contains a recommendation on Low Impact Development.As it is now in the public domain, I would be grateful if you would send me a copy.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Tony Wrench
