Safleoedd Ymgeisio a Gyflwynwyd / Candidate Site Submissions

Representation ID: 78

Received: 16/01/2019

Respondent: Mr Hewan Ormson

Representation Summary:

Over-development of rural area. Loss of valuable agricultural land. Waste water/sewage/rainwater/system in the area cannot cope already. Increase in traffic accessing busy trunk road. Increased traffic leading to increase danger for local nursery and schoolchildren walking to bus pick up points. Ditch at bottom of land already floods and greater area of hard surface would increase flood risk that could then affect properties opposite.

Land should not be included as suitable for development. If it is included then the maximum number of residences should be prescribed.

The Dŵr Cymru pumping station in Manordeilo is already insufficient for dealing with foul water.

Respondent: Welsh Government

Representation Summary:

Single point of access to DMRB standards to be provided. Consider linking with Dolau Tywi to improve existing county road junction.

The respondent has compiled some general comments from Welsh Government Network Management Division as highway authority for the trunk road and motorways in Wales and also makes a number of site specific comments. The respondent states that the strategic trunk road network is for the safe and expeditious movement of long distance traffic. In order to maintain free-flow and safety, there is a general presumption against new access onto trunk roads. Further detailed advice is given on how developments should seek to access trunk roads, with reference made to guidance and legislation (including the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) and the Active Travel Act).

In order for the trunk road highway authority to be in a position to make a considered view, the onus is on the forward planning authority to provide highway evidence in both capacity and safety terms. This will scope the consideration of existing network capacity constraints, agreed infrastructure upgrades and outline delivery streams (such as planning obligations).

Advice is provided on the potential accompanying evidence required with an application (eg Transport Statement (TS) or Transport Assessment (TA)) - commensurate with the scale of the proposal. Applications are judged on their individual merits and specific supporting traffic impact detail may be requested in order to consider network impacts. Where designs are not DMRB compliant there is a right to issue a direction to refuse an application.

Where developments require improvements to existing or new connections to the trunk road and these are agreed at planning, the developer will be required to enter into an appropriate legal agreement for their delivery, generally via Section 184 and Section 278 of the Highways Act.
