Erection of dwelling house, demolition of existing house and outbuildings.  Retention of existing garage.

Parish Comments:-  We have no objection in theory, however we have concerns over the use of the applications permitted development buildings in calculation!  We believe that if planning permission is granted then the permitted development rights should be removed. 

We object to the style of the proposal which is contrary to the South Bucks Townscape Character Study dated July 2015 in particular to section 3.3 Woodland Roads.  The character of the homes within these settings are in general to be of an asymmetrical and informal architectural composition and this is not!!  Policies EP3 (f) and H9 (a) 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.
