Type of Comment
Barry Town Council object to the following proposals (2023/00708 & 2023/00859) in the strongest terms on the following basis: Comparable, adequate and underutilised storage facilities in close proximity to site. Incomparable and wholly unacceptable alteration of 'green/rural' site for potential holiday let accommodation. All infrastructure required to sustain the site would be located away from the development and should therefore be considered an unsustainable development. Wholly negative impact (both retrospective and future) upon the visual amenity of the site which has already been cleared for development. Proximity to sensitive location such as Ty Hafan & Beechwood College and the potential for unnecessary disruption, both in the short and long term. Increase in noise pollution and traffic. Lack of information regarding a required Flood Consequences Assessment. Lack of information regarding the disposal of foul waters from the proposed development. Very real potential for an unwanted and unwarranted development precedent in this location. Real need for biodiversity improvements to be based on what the site was prior to any clearance works, which have been extensive. This must happen in order to ensure that the development complies with PPW11 and results in a net benefit for biodiversity.
