17/02340/FUL                    Firs Field, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, Sl2 4AJ

Detached single storey dwelling.

Parish Comments:-  Object. This application does not comply with and is contrary to policies GB1 & GB2.  


We do not believe this proposed dwelling constitutes exceptional circumstances. Section 3.9 of the local plan makes the point that land that has been built on will be lost forever.


This site also backs onto a SSSI.


The NPPF makes reference to adverse impacts to building on the Greenbelt, this application does not conform to paragraph 87.  


We have had concerns (reported to Planning Enforcement) as fencing has been erected which is contrary to policy GB2 (c) & (d)


We support the SBDC reasons for refusal of the last application 17/00179/FUL points 1 & 2.


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.






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.

Appeal Dismissed
