May 2012 - Counsels Opinion – Vincent Fraser qc- (especially para's 13-16)
May 2012- Lands Tribunal hearing and 6 June 2012 Decision
The issue of compensation for injurious affection was made by Eaden Homes against Welsh Water for the effect on value of their works in 2004. Lands Tribunal Decision held that:
(i) the planning permission was a full permission and was not, in relation to any part of the development permitted, an outline permission.
(ii) In relation to the 38 plots the permission was for their layout and not for the erection of houses upon them
Datrys Model Engineering carried out work to assess consented site levels. Level agreed with the council engineers in Oct Landfill and site level works undertaken.
Done and completed to about 80% of the 1983 permission levels, less top fill/working levels.
Work undertaken by Grays Waste Management with appropriate approvals and certification.
Material relocated was waste stone rather than quarried stone. Clerical error on forms documented incorrect tonnage, and a temporally lapsed license invoked a charge from the nrw.
Nrw took enforcement action and served appropriate notices.
Nb there are no issues at the quality quantity, and content of everything that has actually been deposited on the site, and the licenses held over the years were more than enough for the total tonnages deposited.
13 July 2017 - Letter - Ynys Mon Council -Chief Planning Officer
Refers again to planning consent granted for 83 dwellings on 29th April 1983 and site levels.
11 May 2018 - Refusal of application for a retrospective environmental permit
Natural Resources Wales refuses T2 permit to deposit further waste stone on the site. (nb there would be no issues on quarried stone being used instead). A full fra would be required to overturn this nonsensical decision.
November 2018. Appeal lodged. By Eaden Homes
24 June 2019 Appeal Decision - The Planning Inspectorate
Subject: Appeal against a decision by National Resources Wales to refuse an earlier application to import a further 20,000 cubic metres of waste material to raise land levels to 3.4m above Ordnance datum
Decision: Appeal dismissed. Token out of court settlement reached. (nb this is personal to the current directors and liability does not transfer with the land).
2020 outstanding issues
nrw require a flood risk assessment be undertaken to demonstrate that surface water run-off will satisfactorily drain off the site into the sea, and that the site is protected from flooding from the rear via the area known as the 'Inland Sea'.
Recent (2020) high winds storms and tides have flooded the road to the front of the site, but the sea levels came nowhere near the existing site levels, let alone the proposed finished site levels.
Eaden Homes do not believe that there would be any issues in using 'virgin material' to complete the remaining works of final levelling.
It is understood that Transco have supplied a gas main into the entrance of the site, which work was undertaken as part of a 'material start' to the on-site works in 1984-5
