Tair Croes - A number of villagers have been wondering about the development at Tair Croes, along the lane between Colwinston and Ewenny.
There are significant works taking place at this site, as part of the installation of a digestate lagoon. The Vale had granted a Certificate of Lawful Development (Ref. 2016/01293/LAW) for the works, meaning that they benefited from permitted development, and did not require planning permission. The lagoon is over 3.0 metres (which the Vale officer identifies as the height of the proposed lagoon). However, as the lagoon is further than 3.0 kilometres from the St. Athan aerodrome, it can be up to 12.0 metres in height, without requiring a planning application. At the time of his visit, the lagoon was no greater than approx. 6 metres in height. Therefore, the Vale officer’s investigation did not identify any breach of planning control and the case was closed.
Our understanding is that the waste is processed in Bridgend and brought to Tair Croes in tankers via Ewenny. We understand there will be no odour. The waste, in liquid form will be taken and spread on agricultural land. When we have more information we will update the website.
We have raised the question of noise particularly at weekends from this site and await a response.
