To refuse the application
1. The proposal is very vulnerable to harm and is located within a C1 flood zone. The proposal is not part of a regeneration strategy or strategy by the local authority and neither does it contribute to key employment objectives that are supported by the local authority and other key partners. The proposal is not located on previously developed land either and the Flood Consequence Assessment submitted with the application fails to show that risks and flood consequences can be managed to an acceptable level. Therefore, the proposal does not meet the justification requirements included in paragraph 6.2 of Technical Advice Note Wales: Development and Flood Risk and, as a result, it is also contrary to the requirements of Policy PS 6 of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Joint Local Development Plan.
2. The increase in the proposed number of static holiday caravans is not small, or commensurate with the scale of the proposed improvements for the site and it is above the recommended increase of 10% in the original numbers on the site, therefore, it is contrary to the principles of point 4 of policy TWR 3 of the Anglesey and Gwynedd Joint Local Development Plan and Supplementary Planning Guidance: Tourist Facilities and Accommodation.
3. Insufficient consideration was given to landscaping matters as part of the proposal. In light of this, it is not considered that the proposal would add towards maintaining or enhancing the landscape and that the proposal is contrary to the requirements of Policy PCYFF 4 of the Anglesey and Gwynedd Joint Local Development Plan.
