The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority have concern over the 90M Stack but not RCT Planning Department you have to ask the question WHY?

Rhondda Cynon Taf Planning Officers have today issued a report, which has recommended that the application for a 90m stack at the proposed Enviroparks development is approved. So what will our councillors say and do or will the Welsh labour Government allow this?

Objection to the Planning Application for a 90m Emissions stack, Hirwaun Industrial Estate

Conclusion The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority do have concern over the landscape and visual impacts of the proposed 90m stack and the impacts this then has the statutory purpose of the National Park - “to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park”. The NPA also have concern that the proposal will adversely impact on two of the Special Qualities of the Park – its “sweeping grandeur and outstanding natural beauty” and the “working, living “patchwork” of contrasting patterns, colours, and textures”. Addressing the points above on the draft planning application would assist in ensuring that when the planning application is submitted, the impacts on the National Park are clear, so due regard can be given to these by the determining Local Planning Authority (Rhondda Cynon Taf Council). Please note that this response has been prepared by Officers, and will not receive formal ratification from Members until 28th July 2020 after which point in time I may provide supplementary response as necessary. Please also note these comments are made without prejudice to comments which may be made when the planning application is submitted.
