Hi,

We have been working on a new Marina Office and Coffee shop since last year and we have just done some renders for the client to show them the design.

Part of the building already exists and is an old life boat station, this will be re-clad and re-designed inside, the central part which is the Coffee shop is a new build extension.

We hope to go to Planning soon, - Jim, I might need your advice dealing with the Welsh Planners!

Nice!

If it's over 1000m2, you'll need a PAC and a DAS, and you'll have to deal with TANs, an EIA, FCA, SUDS and NRW. Possibly also a TA and an bat emergence survey. At least in Burry Port you are unlikely to require a CMRA. Not much fun...

PAC - Pre-application consultation, a 4 week pre-planning phase where you have to make the proposals available to the public and all interested parties including specialist consulates like NRW, the Coal Authority, Welsh Water etc. In effect you have to publish all your planning information online and make paper copies available to the public, and put up site notices. It's a pain, and of questionable benefit... The principle is that it should overcome the pesky objections stage which causes delay. In practice, difficult and obstructive people/organisations have two opportunities and twice as much time to try to interfere.

You can mail me about this, I have some templates. The notifications have to be bilingual. In fact everything visible to the public has to be bilingual, including fire door signs. You'll need to get it translated. I can give you some contacts. At least your drawings, specifications and DAS don't need to be. It's a legal obligation from the Welsh language Act. On all signage, the Welsh text has to come first. Yes, I know...

NRW - Natural Resources Wales. Our version of the Environment Agency. They deal with everything from flooding to ecology

FCA - Flood Consequence Assessment. If you are a flood risk zone (most likely not, but you'll need a note in the DAS about it) you'll need one of these. Have a look here

TAN - Technical Advice Note, our equivalent of PPGs. They are all online here

EIA - Environmental Impact Assessment, you may need one, you may not - depending on the site, ask the planners if they would expect one

SUDS - Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems - this is now mandatory here. However it will depend on whether it can be demonstrated that the site is suitable. 

TA - Transport Assessment, an analysis of the traffic network in the vicinity. This might be required, depending on the nature of the site and the estimated traffic volume

DAS - Design and Access Statement, you'll be used to these 😉

Feel free to mail me for any more info.

Hi Jim,

Thanks a lot for all that info, that is really very useful!

I am going to discuss it all with one of the other Directors and I am sure I will have some more questions so I will email you directly.

Thanks.

kind regards,
Nat

looking good! I like the volumes 

 

With all that list of acronyms, I was thinking it was a joke Bigstick, but it only shows the well-executed planning of a permit process, anyone can make a cute building but going through all the process for permitting and bureacry that's other story, send more renders for the development if available Nat.
