“A semi-mature Ash is proposed for removal to create a passing place along the lane and a mature ivy-clad Ash and semi-mature Alder are also proposed for removal at the end or the lane in order to create a suitable visibility splay.
Frequent foraging and commuting Common Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus) and Soprano Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pygmaeus) and Brown Long-cared Bat (Plecotus auritus} were recorded in and around the vicinity of the Ash tree during both surveys. Regular high passes by Noctule (Nyctalus noctula) were
also recorded during both surveys.
There is potential for impacts on Cacau Glyn Fields SSSI and Glyn Fields LWS to the east and north-east of site due to ammonia emissions. Appropriate mitigation will there tore need to be pm in place to limit the impact of ammonia pollution on the botanical value of the SSSI and LWS. Consideration also needs to be given to the potential impacts of drainage and surface water run-off on the field drain located approximately 100m south of site and further downstream where it adjoins Caeau Glyn Fields SSSI, located approximately 555m east of site.”
Ecology Report, Turnstone August 2019
“We have significant concerns with the proposed development as submitted.
•The forthcoming Water Resources (Control of Agricultural Pollution) (Wales) Regulations 2021will impose a farm average limit of 170kgN/ha/yr. Therefore, this farm would be under this value by only a small margin. Therefore, this would indicate there is almost no capacity for additional N.
•The statement “As all poultry manure is being exported straight from the poultry unit to an Anaerobic Digester, then the farm will continue to have a surplus of 6,425.9kg of N spreading capacity.” This is incorrect, as explained above.

“The National Cycle Network Route 81 includes sections on the B4385 and therefore may be affected by the proposed development. The anticipated increase in volume of heavy goods vehicles on the B4385, both during and post construction, is likely to have a negative impact on users of the NCN, particularly at the junction with this development location.”
