Parish Comments:- Object to another commercial business in the Green Belt, Policies GB1, GB4 GB9 (c) & EP3 (f) all apply.
Hereby Refuse Permission
PL/20/2457/OA Home Farm, School Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QA
Outline Application for two dwellings (all matters reserved)
Parish Council Comments: Object. 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 Planning Authority would find increasingly difficult to resist and which, cumulatively, would seriously prejudice the openness of the Green Belt and the aims and objectives of Green Belt policy.
Furthermore, this proposal would, by virtue of the resultant size and scale of the building when considered in relation to the original building and its potential intrusive impact upon its setting in the landscape, contribute to the erosion of the Green Belt which, individually and when considered in the context of an accumulation of similar proposals, would detrimentally affect the aims and objectives of the Green Belt.
Hereby Refuse Permission
PL/20/4146/FA 132 Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LN
Single storey read/side/front extension including porch.
Parish Comments:- No Comment

Parish Comments: – Our previous comments still apply which were: – Subject to waiving of previous approval: PL/18 4398 FA also subject to confirmation that the conversions have not been undertaken.
Also, the proposal constitutes inappropriate development within the Green Belt, which by definition is harmful. No very special circumstances have been advanced sufficient to warrant an exception to the normal operation of Green Belt policy. As such the proposal is contrary to policies GB1 and GB2 of the South Bucks District Local Plan (adopted March 1999) and section 13 (Protecting Green Belt Land) of the NPPF.
Refusal of Permission
Appeal Lodged 27/4/2020 – APP/N0410/W/20/3245197
