Clydebank kennel and poultry farm to be converted into new homes

At least three new homes could be developed on a Clydebank site historically used as a kennel and poultry farm.

A pre-planning application has been approved by members of West Dunbartonshire Council’s planning committee for the residential development on the grassland next to No.8 Cochno Holdings.

A supporting statement made to the local authority says the site could accommodate up to three or four homes, which would include vehicular access to the site from Cochno Road.

So far, 11 opponents have raised concerns that the application was not in line with the local development plan.

They also say there would be an impact on road safety and residential amenities and that new homes are not needed in the area.

At Wednesday’s planning committee, Housing Organizing Councilor Diane Docherty, filed a motion to deny the request.

She said: “The proposed development would be contrary to the policy which restricts development on the green belt, which would have a negative effect on the character of the landscape.

“The use of the adjacent land for a new access road is considered unacceptable and I agree with the comments that have been made here about this constant small foray into these types of landscapes.

“People say it’s good because it’s only two or three houses but who will be the next to develop two or three houses?”

While advisers agreed with her, some still wanted to see a full application before making their final decision.

SNP adviser Ian Dixon said: “I am prepared to approve this request in principle. Comments and concerns about privacy are a red herring at this point.

“They can just put a little bungalow here for all we know and that would be dealt with in a full application and I’m happy to see that at a later date.”

Following a roll-call vote, the majority of councilors agreed to approve the request. A full application will now be presented to the committee in due course.

Controversial kennel at Ebbw Vale could still be allowed

Controversial dog breeding kennel projects in Ebbw Vale, which thousands have opposed, could be back on the cards.

An appeal has been lodged against a decision by Blaenau Gwent Council to refuse permission to convert a former stable into 30 kennels at Star Fields in Mountain Road.

Around 18,500 people have signed a petition against the plans, with campaigning led by charities and animal welfare groups – including Hope Rescue, Puppy Love Campaigns and CARIAD.

Activists said the plans run counter to a motion passed unanimously by the council in favor of Lucy’s Law, which states that puppies must be sold from their place of birth.

But councilors have also been warned by planning officers that rejecting the application on animal welfare grounds could leave the authority open to an appeal.

Instead, the reasons given for the denial were based on the impact the buildings might have on a Special Landscape Area (SLA).

But an appeal filed on behalf of the plaintiff, Lee Bowerman, says the buildings have been in place for some time now and match others in the area that have no impact on ALS.

No more than 25 dogs at any one time will be kept on the site, in the interests of animal welfare, according to the appeal.

The number of dogs allowed on the site would also be regulated according to national standards by an independent and qualified veterinarian, it says.

The use of any of the proposed buildings for the breeding of dogs is “completely appropriate”, the appeal adds.

A request for costs has also been filed in relation to the rejection of the plans.

It states that the conduct of counsel in the application “is a clear example of unreasonable behavior, resulting in an unnecessary appeal and the incurring of unnecessary costs for the appellant, thereby justifying an award of costs.”

But activists have vowed to fight the appeal.

Councilor Lisa Winnett, who has already lodged an objection with the Planning Inspectorate, said: “I will always fight for animal welfare and try to be a voice for the voiceless because these dogs can’t speak for themselves.”

The charity Hope Rescue said: ‘We will not give up and keep fighting.

A town planning inspector will review the appeal in the coming months.
