“Members will recall that at the 2 December 2015 Planning and Access Committee officers reported on the all members visit to the site of this application.

A decision on this matter was deferred from that meeting until such time as certain matters of concern had been resolved by the applicant through the submission of further details. In addition further comments were requested from Natural Resources Wales and Conwy Country Council planning Department and that an independent landscape consultant be contracted to comment on certain aspects of the application.

At the time of writing this report the applicant has forwarded an (incomplete) response, Natural Resources Wales responded by stating that they were still considering their reply, Conwy Council planning department responded by stating that they do not intend to comment as the application falls 3.5km outside their jurisdiction area.

An independent landscape consultant has been engaged who has now reviewed the application details and has reported back to the Authority at the end of last year. The consultan has highlighted certain issue that need addressing which will require the further attention of the applicant.

Given the above it is not, as yet, possible to provide members with a further comprehensive report on the outstanding matters on which a fully informed decision can be made. ”

The next meeting is in March.
