TREE/2017/0020, Works to trees subject to a preservation order (TPO20): Crown reduction of 1 no. sycamore and complete removal of 3 no. sycamores at Ambers, Norton Manor Park, Norton.

Considered at the June meeting of the Town Council. Resolved to object to the above application for the following reasons - over time trees have been continually removed from the site thus removing the screening of the properties generally, the Council feels that the problem with this site (and others in the past) is that units have been replaced with considerably larger ones which are then of course closer to the surrounding trees, the Council requests that the site owners carry out a full tree survey of the site to identify the wider picture and so that an overall replacement planting scheme and organised removal can be planned rather than the individual piecemeal approach currently employed.

The Town Council feels that the opportunity should be taken to review the screening of the site.

The Town Council would like to suggest that a full tree survey is done so that a maintenance/replacement plan can be drawn up and adequate screening of the site be achieved. It was noted that sites 62-67 appear to be outside the boundary of the certificate requested. It is also strongly suggested that a habitat survey be carried out over the whole site but, particularly in the area of sites 62-67. The Town Council does not wish to comment on the legal issues involved in determining the application.

P/2014/0794, removal of conditions 14 and 15 of planning permission P2010/0343 to allow units to be occupied as full residential units at Rockbridge Park, Discoyd. Considered at the August 2014 meeting of the Town Council and comments submitted were

The Town Council wishes to object to the removal of the conditions on the following grounds -
 the removal of the conditions would set a precedent for the removal of such conditions on other holiday properties in the area (properties that received the original planning permission because they were for holiday accommodation only and whose suitability was assessed accordingly);
the Council is concerned at the loss of available holiday accommodation in the area which it feels is very much needed locally;
the increased foot and vehicular traffic along the main road from the site into Presteigne  created by permanent residential use of the site.

P2014 0732 LBC, conversion of former doctors surgery and apartment to form an annex to include internal alterations at Warden Court, St. David's Street, Presteigne.  Considered at the August 2014 meeting of the Town Council. No objections raised.

P2012/0573 full, new site access road from A4113 to the Llanshay Lane and the creation of passing places to enable access to the consented Reeves Hill wind farm at agricultural land south of A4113, Knighton. Considered at the August 2014 meeting of the Town Council and comments submitted were

The Town Council wishes to object to the granting of permission for the access road for the following reasons -

The Council feels it is impossible to determine this application without reference to the impact of the whole development and it's effect on the area and indeed understands that had the development been sited wholly in Wales then both the access works and the site would have had to be submitted as one application and so would have been considered together.

The opposition to the wind farm itself, which is supported by the survey conducted by the Stonewall Hill Conservation Group which indicated 92% of Norton residents are opposed to all aspects of the proposed development. (Norton residents will be the most affected by sight and noise from the proposed wind farm).

Stonewall Hill is special place, unique on the Welsh/English border with the road and it's historical stone wall defining that boundary and from which extensive views of the Marches are available. The proposed access road will change the character of the whole area, presently a tranquil and beautiful spot appreciated by locals and visitors alike. The area is a haven for many forms of wildlife and indeed since the Town Council's letter of June 2012 red kites have been sited in the area.

The proposed road will impact on tourism and leisure uses for Stonewall Hill and thus destroy a much loved and well used local beauty spot. It would effectively industrialise the road and its surroundings and destroy the nature of the road and its setting in the rural countryside.

To incorporate the access road the ancient medieval stone wall will need to be breeched in four places, a clear destruction of such a historical landmark in the area. Indeed the wall is the historic boundary between England and Wales.

The damage, wear and tear to all local roads and especially Stonewall Hill/Llanshay Lane will be considerable and the impact to local flora and fauna severe and irreparable.

P/2014/0508, full, erection of a holiday chalet with new vehicular access at Harp Meadow, Warden Road, Presteigne. Considered at the July 2014 Council Meeting and comments submitted were

'The Town Council would wish to ensure that the chalet is retained for holiday use only as permanent residential use would constitute development in the open countryside. To this end it would wish to see the following conditions as part of the planning permission -
the chalet shall be occupied for no longer than 50 weeks per year
the chalet shall be used for holiday purposes only and should not be used as a sole residence
the period of each let shall be no longer than six weeks with no return by the same holiday maker within six weeks
a record of all lets should be maintained and be kept available for inspection by the local authority'
