Due to the adoption of the Joint Local Development Plan Policy between Anglesey & Gwynedd it was our client’s last chance to re-new their application for this development as the policies were about to change. This proposal was for outline permission of 6 dwellings on a piece of land at Brynteg in Anglesey. An approval had been grated for this previously however there was not enough time to implement the permission and a re-newed application was required.
As the policies were about to change within the new Joint Local Development Plan, it was going to be a tricky application to get approved within the timescale. Owen Devenport quickly submitted a new application in order to re-new the application and after much consideration by the Local Authority, attending a meeting with the Head of Planning we were delighted to inform our clients that the Local Authority granted their permission again. The clients were thrilled with their re-newed permission and are now swiftly looking to develop the site.
Having gained an initial approval to erect a dwelling on a piece of land in Llanfaelog, our client returned to Owen Devenport for assistance with a second application for the erection of another dwelling on the same site. The land was set within the 'listed' settlement of Llanfaelog, however after submission, the application became more complicated as the Anglesey & Gwynedd Joint Local Development Plan was about to be adopted and that particular policy would no longer apply. This was our client’s final opportunity to submit their proposal and as we were running out of time Owen Devenport arranged a meeting with the Head of Planning to discuss the application and after some lengthy discussions, the application was approved. Our client was left delighted and is now setting up the site in order to implement the permissions.
Ifor Williams Ltd are a returning client of ours who once again instructed us as their Planning Agents. They wanted to continue work towards their flourishing building set at Ty’n Llidiart Industrial Estate, Corwen. This latest submission included the proposal of the installation of 3 no. internally illuminated signs on the exterior of two of their buildings. The intention of these signs would be to alert their customers and make it easier for visitors to see where the company's premises are located. Owen Devenport took on the proposal and prepared a report which supported the need for these signs. The proposal was happily received and we were glad to obtain the necessary consents.
We were approached by a client who had initially submitted an application to the Local Planning Authority which had been refused. The proposal was for the change of use of an existing annexe at Trearddur Bay into a dwelling. The annexe had originally been a garage which had been converted into an annexe that had been in use for some time. The Local Planning Authority chose to refuse it upon the grounds that the proposal would “unacceptably affect the privacy and amenity of existing and proposed occupiers”.
We held a different view and suggested an appeal would be worthwhile. We were subsequently instructed to conduct the appeal and set up a strong case which argued the weakness of the Council's stance in this matter. Following the usual procedure of a Written Representation appeal we were soon informed of the final decision and our client was overjoyed to hear that the appeal was allowed.
Permission has been granted for the erection of an executive house at Betws y Coed following on from pre-application advice given by the Snowdonia National Park. The plot is set within an exclusive development on the edge of the village consisting of 5 plots overall, 3 of which have already been developed. Some of the Park's advice was challenged and in approving the development they clearly acceded to our own suggestions. This detached quality property was designed by Ty Architecture cyf with input from the client throughout. Our client was genuinely delighted at receiving the approval having previously been refused the design he had originally sought for the plot.
