17/01861/CLUED              Firs Field, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks

Detached garage.

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.

Certificate of Lawfulness


17/01893/TPO                    53 Vine Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DW

T1. Oak Reduce and reshape crown by removal of up to 3 metres in crown height, and 2 metres in lateral width/ (BD TPO NO 6, 1976 (A1)).

T2. Oak The subject tree is of a large spreading nature straddling gardens and encroaching onto the adjacent properties.  It therefore requires pruning as specified in order to maintain at a size appropriate to its location and to allow sustainable tree management in the long term.

Parish Comments:-  No Objection subject to the arboriculturalists report.

Consent Granted



17/01678/FUL                    27 Broom Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PU

Redevelopment of site to provide two detached dwellings with associated vehicular access.

Parish Comments:-  Object our previous comments plus other comments apply:-

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 two high detached properties 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.

The rear dormers on these properties are at least half a meter higher than those on the previous application and will seriously overlook the properties ‘Little Chesters’ and ‘Ambersley’ at the rear.
