Erection of a detached outbuilding.

Hereby Permits

PL/20/2286/VRC              Land adjoining, 1 Journeys End, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4NT

Variation of condition 2 of PP 17/02170/FUL (Detached dwelling house and vehicular access with associated hardstanding) to allow for: new front and rear rooflights to facilitate living space on second floor.  Increase to floor area, changes to windows and doors.  New vehicular access including dropped kerb.

Parish Council Comments:   Object.  The proposed development, by virtue of a combination of its size, scale, massing, style and proximity to the sites flank boundaries, would appear over dominant, obtrusive and out of keeping, as well as appearing as a cramped overdevelopment of the site.  As such, it would have an adverse impact on the street scene and the character and visual amenities of the area.  Therefore, the proposal is contrary to Policies H9 and EP3 of the South Bucks District Local Plan (adopted March 1999) and policy CP8 of the South Bucks Core Strategy (adopted February 2011), and the NPPF.  Furthermore, the proposed development would not reflect the form or height of existing buildings on this designated Formal Suburban Road, to the detriment of its appearance and character and contrary to the content of the “South Bucks Townscape Character Study”.

This application is also contrary to some of the conditions on the previous approval.

Erection of a multi-purpose space and ancillary room, removal of existing modular classrooms, creation of a new footpath link with Khalsa Academy, creation of temporary construction access on School Lane and related landscaping, SUDS and other drainage works and associated works to 6no TPO trees.

Parish Comments: – OBJECT (addition of multi-purpose space).  This is an historically sensitive location set on a narrow-wooded lane within the green belt. The development does not meet any of the criteria of Policy GB1 and in light of the application from Pioneer House asking for approval to hold civil ceremonies there is a major concern that this building will be used as a venue for 3rd party events. Therefore, Policy GB5 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (e) would also become relevant. Additionally, we have concerns over an increase in parking onsite which would lead to the generation of additional traffic on an already busy but narrow lane. Policies TR5 and TR7 (d) would also apply. Furthermore, we consider that the proposed application does not meet any of the requirements of Policy EP3.


Appeal Allowed.

PL/20/3069/FA                  11 Penn Meadow, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EB

Part two storey/part first floor side extension, first floor rear extension, front porch, changes to doors and windows, demolition of garage and removal of chimney.

Parish Comments: – The proposal, by virtue of its constrained plot size is not of a form of development which is compatible with the scale and spacious pattern of development in the surrounding area. As such, the proposal would adversely impact upon this existing character and appearance of the area, contrary to policies EP3 and H9 of the South Bucks District Local Plan (Adopted March 1999) refer).

Appeal – Written Reps.
