Planning permission was granted for 20 log cabins near Holyhead, Anglesey. However the permission contained a condition restricting the use of the cabins, so that they could not be sold off individually. Following our involvement with another similar development and restriction - which was expunged on appeal, with costs - we advised the new client to apply for a new planning permission to have the offending condition removed as it was ultra vires. The Local Planning Authority agreed and removed the offending condition in a renewed planning permission. This now makes the development more viable for the client and will allow him to re-assess the development in the light of this decsion by the Local Planning Authority.
Owen Devenport successfully bid to Llwyddo Yng Ngwynedd to prepare a brochure and website aimed at assisting Gwynedd farmers to diversify. The aim was to cover all the aspects of considering a diversification project, such as funding, financial advice, planning issues, business planning and training. A comprehensive analysis was carried out of all these issues with extensive interviews with all parties concerned. Case Studies were also identified and set out in the brochure as a guide to the pitfalls and successes of existing diversification projects.
We were engaged to assist our clients in addressing their concerns over the construction of an electricity cable and substation to serve a new off-shore wind farm which would site the proposed substation in close proximity to their industrial premises. Our clients business involved the manufacture of high tech optics in a process which was extremely sensitive to disturbance of any kind.
In depth discussions were held between the Planning Department, the agents of the wind farm developer and ourselves, and as a result of these discussions and representations made to the planning committee all of our clients concerns were addressed, with a comprehensive monitoring scheme put in place to ensure that any potential disturbance to their business was addressed.
