17/00914/FUL                    Jolanka, Stoke Court Drive, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LU

Two storey side/rear extension incorporating integral garage, rear balcony and alterations to fenestration.

Parish Comments:-  We do not believe this is in the Green Belt but a Greent Belt calculation has been submitted, which would then make us query the 50% Green Belt rules!

Full Planning Permission


17/00929/FUL                    27 Broom Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PU

Construction of three terraced dwellings with associated vehicular accesses.

Parish Comments:-  Object our previous comments apply which were:-

OBJECT Policies EP3 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (e).  H9 (a) & (b) and TR7 (a), (b), (c) & (d) all apply.

This application is an over dominance of the site and is totally out of character with its surroundings.  The style of the development of Terraced Houses will set a precedent within our semi-rural area.  It does not meet the criteria and characteristics as laid out in the South Bucks Townscape Character Study.

We would also question the amount of parking spaces not being enough.

Refusal of Planning Permission


17/00961/FUL                    77 Vine Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DQ

Single storey rear extension.

Parish Comments:-  No Comment

Full Planning Permission

Application for Certificate of Lawfulness for existing: Use of an outbuilding as a separate self-contained dwelling.

Parish Comments:-  Object our previous comments still apply which were:-

Object, we have serious concerns about this, appendix 9 & 10, H12, H13, GB2 (g) i, ii, iii, iv & v all apply.  Please refer to the many previous planning refusals and appeals.

We also agree with the previous refusal reasons from SBDC.  We have seen the letters purporting to be from tenants, has it been checked that these were on the electoral registers when they say they were living there or have you seen any other evidence that confirms their residency.

Refusal of Certificate of Lawfulness


17/01099/FUL                    The Baobab, Framewood Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 6PG

Conversion of existing ancillary outbuilding into a self-contained residential dwelling.

Parish Comments:-  In principle we have no objection; however we are concerned it may not comply with GB2A.

This Proposal, if permitted, would be likely to act as a precursor of further applications for similar types of development within this part of the Green Belt, which the District Planning Authority would find increasingly difficult to resist and which, cumulatively, would further seriously prejudice the openness of the Green Belt and the aims and objectives of the Green Belt policy.

Refusal of Planning Permission


17/01049/CLOPED           Miladys, Stoke Poges Lane, Stoke Poges, SL2 4NP

Single storey side extension, two storey rear extension and conversion of loft into habitable accommodation incorporating side and rear dormers.

Certificate of Lawfulness

Non material amendment to PP 15/00204/FUL to allow:removal of existing slope and replacement with a retaining wall.

Refusal of Non-Material Amendment








17/00383/FUL                    Land adjacent to The Plough Inn, Wexham Street, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 6NJ

One pair of semi-detached dwellings with new vehicular and pedestrian access.

Parish Comments:-  Object, previous comments still apply:-  Overdevelopment in the Green Belt.  Policy GB1 (1) applies and also contrary to policy GB3 (a).  The Garden of this pub is an amenity the parish would not want to lose.  Also contrary to policies EP3 and H9 in relation to the adverse level of overlooking into Evergreen, Plough Lane.  Contrary to policy TR5.

Refusal of Planning Permission

Written Representations


17/00298/FUL                    29 Decies Way, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EF

Detached chalet bungalow.

Parish Comments:-  Our previous comments still apply which were:-

We are concerned about the access for vehicles from the point of view that Decies Way is already overstretched with parked cars.  We also have concerns around the public access from other neighbouring houses who currently use the rear access for wheelie bins to and from the rear of their properties. We highly recommend that SBDC do a site visit!!

If the conifer/cypress hedge remains it would cause no problems to any neighbours, but removing it would be a loss of an amenity.

Refusal of Planning Permission

Written Representations.


17/00429/FUL                    Pinewood Nurseries, Wexham Street, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 6NB

Change of use of glasshouse to car sales room.

Parish Comments:-  Object, Policies GB2 (c) & (g), GB5 (d), GB9 (a), (c) & (d), S6 (b), (c) & (d) all apply.  Potential risk of contamination policy EP16 applies, as does the traffic policies TR5 (c) and TR10 (a), (b) & (c) because this is directly opposite Wexham Park Hospital and the entrance for the ambulances to the A & E department, high levels of traffic including car transporters along this rural road cannot be allowed.
