16/00679/CAN                        79 Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LW

(T1) – Black Locust – fell

Parish Comments:- No objection subject to the arboriculturalists report, however due to this being in the Conservation Area we would prefer not to have the loss of a tree and would ask that a replacement is replanted.

16/00574/CLUED       Firs Field, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks

App for Cert of Lawfulness for:- Use of existing building on site as general storage facility (Class B8).

Parish Comments:- Object: Greenbelt and bordered on two sides by SSSI.

This is a contentious site as the previous owner wanted to build a house and could not obtain planning consent. The owner then set about erecting corrugated iron sheets which has never been a building or a store and using it as a dump in an endeavour to make to site unattractive.

The Parish Council have endeavoured on more than one occasion to get the site cleared, on the last attempt 4/5 years ago, the portfolio holder refused to get involved. We do not believe that there is evidence that the site is used as a store and there is no proper access. There has been an attempt in the last few months to fix the corrugated sheet. We do not believe that the photos submitted are a true reflection of the site.

We believe the current applicant has purchased the land in the hope of building a house

16/00557/FUL             Rough Hey, Templewood Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4AN

Proposed temporary site access for construction vehicles from Templewood Lane.

Parish Council:- In principle we have no objection, but any damage caused should be made good at the end of the build and the removal of hedgerows and trees should be re-instated.

16/00640/FUL             Land adjoining Hollybush Farm, Hollybush Hill, Stoke Poges, SL2 4QN

Replacements cladding to roof and walls. Alterations to door and window to facilitate conversion of barn to residential use as approved under PP 15/02390/PNOT

Parish Council:- We cannot comment as there are contradictions between the plans and the drawings and we can’t tell if they are existing or proposed.

16/00636/FUL             Land adjacent St Andrews Church Centre, Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, SL2 4LN

Two semi-detached dwellinghouses.

Parish Comments:- Object, This location is congested already and removing parking spaces is ludicrous, TR7 (a) appendix 6 applies.

We have witnessed parking issues which spill out on to the narrow road whilst the church is in use for worship and for commercial rentals. This is next to the school which already has major parking and congestion problems. 

Planning permission 09/00329/FUL contained permission for two dwellings for church workers, both of these dwellings have always been rented our commercially so we would question why the church requires additional accommodation for church workers when they are not using their existing accommodation from this original planning permission application.

EP3 (b), (d) & (f) all apply and this is in or adjacent to the Conservation Area.

16/00695/FUL             The Old Post Office, Hollybush Hill, Stoke Poges, SL2 4PW

Construction of brick wall and sliding electric gate.

Parish Comments:- Object to the wall and to the height this is out of keeping with that area and we object to the loss of the hedgerow.  This corner has houses of character with low walls and an abundance of hedgerows.  We believe that the application could still install electric gates by stepping it in allowing the vehicle to stay off of a busy highway and junction whilst maintaining the hedgerow.  EP3 (f), EP4 (b) & (d) apply.

16/00165/TPO                        48 Freemans Close, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4ER

(T1) Cherry – fell (TPO no 12, 2003)

Parish Comments:- Object based on the conditions attached to previous application 13/01227/TPO which have not been adhered to where a replacement tree for T52 was supposed to be planted and has not been!

T52 tree has already been cut back in such a way that it is severely damaged and before it is allowed to be removed T53 should be replaced and there should be provision for T52 to be replaced as well.

16/00671/FUL             25 Broom Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PU

Two storey rear and first floor side extensions.

Parish Comments:- No Comment
