Parish Comments:-  Object. This application does not comply with any of the Green Belt policies and is bordered on both sides by sssi sites.

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

Written Representations

Appeal Allowed

 17/00097/FUL                    High Farm, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4AL

Conversion of barn and outbuildings to dwelling together with first floor extension to barn.  Erection of stables/storage buildings.

Parish Comments:-  If minded to approve we would have concerns as this is adjacent to woodland within the Green belt.  The planning permission must be adhered to and permitted development rights removed.  The spirit of policy GB2(c) & (d) should be upheld ensuring the openness of the Green Belt is maintained.  We also have concerns over the cladding and aesthetics of the building and whether they would comply with EP3 (d) & (c). As this is re-use of a permanent substantial building there must be compliance with GB1 & GB2.

Written Reps

 

17/00352/FUL                    Davel House, Keens Acre, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4FB

Amendment to PP 15/00501/FUL to allow for increase in roof height.
