Hereby Permits

PL/20/3226/FA                  The Chimes, Chapel Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QJ

Extension of existing dropped kerb and resurfacing of existing driveway and front garden.

Parish Comments:-  Object, This property is in a Lane in the Green Belt which has certain character properties in line with the Woodland Townscape Character Study, and we do not feel it necessary to remove a complete verge as it would become an urbanising feature, a dropped kerb would be enough.  This will have a detrimental impact on the neighbours, and they will have no-where to place their refuse bins weekly.

Hereby Permits

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).

PL/20/1590/FA                  Stoke Grange, Fir Tree Avenue, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4NN

Subdivision of plot and erection of dwelling house with detached garage.

Parish Comments:-  Object, Contrary to GB1

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 Greenbelt, which the Planning Authority would find increasingly difficult to resist and which, which, cumulatively, would seriously prejudice the openness of the Greenbelt and the aims and objectives of Greenbelt policy.

APPENDIX 1

DELEGATED DECISIONS

APPENDIX 2

 NEW PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED

PL/20/1620/FA                  30 Penn Meadow, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EB

Subdivision of plot, erection of detached dwelling served by existing vehicular access and formation of new access to serve the existing dwelling. 

Amended Plans:-  Revised parking layout.

Parish Comments:-  Object, our previous comments apply which were:-Object, Policies EP3 (a), (b), (d) & (f), HP (a) & (b) and NPPF section 12 all apply. 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.

In addition to these comments we would say that this is a cul-de-sac and already has congested parking, tandem parking is not ideal and will add to the existing parking congestion.

PL/20/2595/FA                  35 Penn Meadow, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EB

Erection of 2 bedroom bungalow with vehicular access.

Amended Plans:-  Alteration to materials and amended application form.

Parish Comments:– Object our previous comments apply which were:-  Object.  It is our belief that this proposal if permitted would be likely to act as a precursor for similar developments in the area.

We believe that the new proposed access would have a detrimental impact on pedestrian and highway safety.  In addition the existing property on the site already has an access point.  A second access point if permitted on the B416 would add to the danger and inconvenience on this busy road.  We are also extremely concerned about the loss of green space with regard to the grass verge on the B416 which is an urbanising feature in this road.

We would ask that you are mindful of Section 2.7.6 of the “Townscape Character Study”.

We feel that the following clauses apply with regard to this application EP3 b and f and H9 a and b.

In addition to these comments the design is not in keeping with house in Penn Meadow.  The Design and Access statement does not correlate with the drawings and talk about a slate roof, but the drawings show a sheet metal roof, materials of which are not in keeping.  They mention solar panels but they are missing from the plans, we also still strongly object to the loss of green space on the grass verge on the B416 as mentioned above.  Policies as mentioned above all still apply.

PL/20/3700/EU                 126 Vine Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DN

Lawful Developments certificate for an existing use or operation or activity including those in breach of a planning condition.

Certificate of Lawfulness for existing use of a single storey rear extension as bed/sitting room ancillary to main dwelling house.

Parish Comments:-  Object.  To our knowledge the request for buildings has always been for garages/storage space but are being used as habitable accommodation and is not in keeping with other houses in this road.  The planning permission in 1994 clearly states that these must be used for garage purposes only and they are now in breach of this planning permission by using it as habitable.  The accumulation of buildings is not in keeping with the street scene and all three buildings are being used for habitable accommodation or will be if allowed.

PL/20/3791/FA                  Pinewood Nurseries, Wexham Street, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 6NB

Change of use of land for the parking of private ambulances (retrospective).

Parish Comments:-  Object to another commercial business in the Green Belt, Policies GB1, GB4 GB9 (c) & EP3 (f) all apply.

AMENDED PLANS FOR INFORMATION

APPENDIX 3

PLANNING DECISIONS

PL/20/2902/FA                  Somerville, Duffield Park, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4HY

Single storey rear extension and garage conversion.

Parish Comments:-  No comment subject to the Green Belt 50% rules.

Hereby Permits

PL/20/2985/FA                  Khalsa Secondary Academy, Pioneer House, Hollybush Hill, Stoke Poges SL2 4QB

New pedestrian access into and out of the Academy grounds which is compatible with Disability legislation.  The proposed scheme widens, straightens and levels this path and extends it through to the cark park up to the Academy building entrance.  The works also include changes to the existing railings and gates needed to accommodate the upgraded path.

Parish Comments:-  We do not object to having a disabled access but we do object to the loss of trees.  The tree report is from 2017 supporting a previous application we would recommend re-planting to replace the loss of trees on this sensitive green belt site.  Proposed fencing is an urbanising feature and not compatible with the Green Belt.

Herby Permits

PL/20/3140/TP                  29 Freemans Close, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4ER

Parish Comments:-  No objection subject to the tree officers report.

Hereby Grants Consent

PL/20/0985/FA                  Anvil House, Park Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PG

Two storey front and side extension, single storey side extension, additional windows to side elevation and changes to fenestration/doors.

Parish Comments:-  No comments, but subject to the Green Belt 50% rules.

Hereby Permits

PL/20/2554/FA                  Little Oaks, West End Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4ND

Two storey rear extension, front entrance canopy, loft conversion/extension with front/rear facing dormer/roof windows and alterations to fenestrations.

Parish Council Comments:   Object.  This proposed further extension to the property would result in a large,

bulky and unattractive structure of excessive depth.  The design is symmetrical and monolithic in its appearance

and would appear out of character in this woodland road.

We refer you to the “Built Form” section of the “Townscape Character Study” where the second bullet point states, “Range of individual architect designed houses of varied architectural styles, materials and detailing and generally an asymmetrical, informal architectural composition”.

We would also ask you to be mindful of the following clauses from the NPPF document:

 “Are visually attractive as a result of good architecture, layout and appropriate and effective landscaping”

 “Are sympathetic to local character and history, including the surrounding built environment and landscape setting, while not preventing or discouraging appropriate innovation change”.

 We believe the following policies to be relevant to this application EP3, EP5 a, b and c, H9 a and b and H11.

PL/20/3226/FA                  The Chimes, Chapel Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QJ

Extension of existing dropped kerb and resurfacing of existing driveway and front garden.

Parish Comments:-  Object, This property is in a Lane in the Green Belt which has certain character properties in line with the Woodland Townscape Character Study, and we do not feel it necessary to remove a complete verge as it would become an urbanising feature, a dropped kerb would be enough.  This will have a detrimental impact on the neighbours, and they will have no-where to place their refuse bins weekly.

Parish Comments:-  We have concerns about the plans submitted as they do not fully explain the layout of this and the adjoining properties, the plans allude to a detached property which it is not, and it is therefore unclear and very difficult to comment.

PL/18/3787/OA                 Land on the North Side of Templewood lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks

Outline application for siting of 8 gypsy and traveller pitches (all matters reserved)

Parish Council comments: Object GB1, TR5c, NPPF 143-146. There is no caravan currently on the site. This development will lead to a multi occupancy and is not a minor intensification. The applicant has not demonstrated any special circumstances. There is no public transport along Templewood Lane.

Under the Townscape Policy para 3.3this lane is classed as a Woodland lane, it is a semi natural landscape that should be protected against intensification and other forms of development. There is no mature tree line along the curtilage so no obscurity can be offered. Traffic lights were installed to ease the volume and speed of the traffic approaching the B416 as this lane is used as a cut through to avoid Slough.

Refusal of Permission
