Developers of Barry Waterfront face new enforcement action

BY: Nathan Spackman

Developers at Barry Waterfront are being investigated again just months after the council told them to stop building homes.

Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon were issued warnings by Vale of Glamorgan council in August after it received complaints that construction was taking place at Barry Waterfront outside the permitted hours.

The breach of condition notices – which told the developers to stop works outside the hours agreed in their planning application – have been followed up by regular visits by council officers to ensure the developers follow the rules.

It comes after a new plan to deliver the waterfront’s complex of bars and restaurants, known as the district centre, alongside the new housing was agreed in June.

The council had twice temporarily ordered Persimmon not to build or sell any more homes at the waterfront, until significant progress had been made on the district centre.

Council officers have visited Barry Waterfront to ensure the new delivery plan is being followed, and the authority says this has not resulted in any further action to date.

A Vale of Glamorgan Council spokesman said: “The council is carefully monitoring progress at the Barry Waterfront development to ensure it is being built in accordance with all conditions. This includes delivery of the district centre and other facilities alongside the planned housing.”

A spokeswoman for the Barry Waterfront consortium said: “We have not been issued an enforcement notice by Vale of Glamorgan Council and are working with the council to ensure that all conditions of the planning consent for the development are complied with.”
