17/01905/FUL                    Stoke Court, Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LY

Part demolition at the rear and residential conversion of the existing Stoke Court mansion house and re-development of

site to provide 61 residential units and associated access, parking and landscaping.

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

Object policies TR7 and TR5 both apply


We have concerns regarding the number of parking spaces being provided for this development.  Duffield Lane in particular is already suffering due to the loss of parking in Rogers Lane.  This, and the school time parking issues, is already putting extreme pressure on the surrounding area.  Duffield Lane has a blind bend which has become hazardous with cars parking on one side of the road.  We do not believe there are enough spaces for the number of dwellings proposed for this site and visitors to the development.  (61 dwellings and 117 car parking spaces).

Stoke Poges is a location totally lacking in any form of public transport.  Cars are heavily relied on.



The Parish Council agree that opening up Grays Walk is likely to attract more traffic as it may become an attractive place to visit/ walk. With the pressures of parking in this vicinity we would support the walk not being opened to the general public.  The Parish Council also question who will be responsible for ongoing maintenance!


The Parish Council feel that in this instance extra parking on the proposed site is likely to be far more beneficial to the locality than the loss of GB. We would support this option looking at alternatives other than tarmac.

Parish Comments:-  Object policies GB1, GB11, EP3 (a), (b) and (d), H9( a) and ( b) all apply.

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.
