16/00824/FUL             45 Sefton Close, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LH

Construction of attached dwelling.

Parish Comments:-  Object.  Policies TR7 (d), H11, H9 (a), (b) & (c), EP3 (a), (b) & (f) all apply.  Sefton Close is a small narrow cul-de-sac of small family houses.  It has become more and more congested in the last few years.  With the Planning Applications from L & Q to erect more housing in this small road going ahead this will add even more pressure to space, parking congestion and there are already major issues with refuse lorries coming and going. 

The proposed development by virtue of its density, layout and siting, would appear unduly prominent and obtrusive in the street scene, constitute a cramped overdevelopment of the plot and appear inappropriate in the context of Sefton Close and out of keeping with the character and visual amenity of the locality in general.  As such the proposal is considered to be contrary to policies EP3 (a), (b) and H9 (a) of the SBDC Local Plan (adopted March 1999) and Core Policy 8 of the SBDC Core Strategy (adopted February 2011).

Refusal of Planning Permission


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.

No TPO required.


16/00705/FUL             77 Vine Road, Stoke Poges,Bucks, SL2 4DQ

Single storey front extension.

Parish Comments:-  The loss of parking will add to an already congested on street parking problem.

Full Planning Permission


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

Certificate of Lawful Use or Development


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

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.
