14/02436/FUL             Pioneer House, Hollybush Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QP

Acoustic Fencing.

Parish Comments:- Cllr Carter proposed that the comments agreed at Full PC on 10 October are accepted and Ratified by this committee, this was seconded by Cllr Hoskins.  This committee agreed that they have not only looked at policies on this application but at what the local residents have wanted and have supported their requests and documentation on the matter.

Comments submitted:-

POINTS OF OBJECTION:

There is no evidence to suggest that an acoustic wall will be totally effective. It is generally accepted that the effectiveness of an acoustic barrier cannot be measured until after is is built.

It offers no protection to noise generated from the playing fields and land adjacent to Hockley Rise. No consideration has been given to noise generated from the car park to the north west of the site which is used for basketball/ netball/ football and other sporting activities; you cannot stop children from shouting or making a noise especially when lessons would take place throughout the day. According to the Planning Inspector (APP/N0410/A/14/2215541 para 8.3.12) even with a 2m screen there would be substantial exceedances indoors (4dBA) and against the 50dBA guideline for external areas although the effectiveness of an extra 500mm is not understood.

The acoustic fencing would be effective in attenuating the noise level from the rear car park area but would do little to mask the effects of sports or play on the field. Nor would it prevent the high spirited noise of pupils arriving or leaving on the coaches parked on the eastern access road.

We have particular concerns about Hill End and Old Oak House on School Lane and Flint Meadow and Cherry Tree Cottage on Hockley Lane, mainly because their rear gardens are lower than the height of the car park/ playing area resulting in the 2.5m wall feeling more obtrusive; the perception will be of a doubling of height – perhaps more – of existing garden fencing, but with a solid wall.

The acoustic wall offers no protection to Farthing Green Lane, Orchard Cottage and houses further to the south while the playing fields and car parks are in use. We are particularly concerned that the acoustic barrier will funnel and amplify noise created in a southerly direction, potentially worsening the noise impact to properties further away towards Farthing Green Lane.

The elevated nature of this site exacerbates any noise created meaning that any measures taken to mitigate noise are likely to be unsuccessful.

There are no measures in place to stop pupils from breeching the wall into no go zones or to discourage pupils from climbing on it. This could result in pupils gathering behind or on the wall and causing disturbance to residents.

The foundations for the wall are approximately 1metre deep this means disturbing contamination. Remedial works took place to remove contaminated hot spots but only to a depth of 20cm.

1:   Policy GB1 – Development in the Green Belt.

The proposed installation of acoustic fencing represents inappropriate development in the greenbelt; it meets none of the development criteria.

It is considered that this proposal would adversely affect the character of the Greenbelt and the amenity of nearby properties. (GB (i) & (ii)).

2:   Policy EP3 – The Design, Use, and layout of Development.

It is considered that this development has the potential to be detrimental to the character and amenity of nearby properties by reason of visual intrusion through scale and use of materials. (EP3 (e) & (f)).

It is noted that the acoustic fence consists of a masonry core with “living willow” panels on both sides. There is no guarantee that the natural willow will naturalise and adequately cover the core materials; residents could be left with a 2.5m masonry wall at the rear of their properties.

3:   South Bucks Local Development Framework –

Core Strategy 9  Natural Environment.

 

This policy concerns the conservation and enhancement of the natural environment, stating that development should not “harm the landscape character or nature conservation interests, unless the importance of the development outweighs the harm caused”.

Although this proposal proposes a natural willow covering to the masonry structure there is no evidence that coverage will be complete and that large areas of bare block work wouldn’t be seen by residents and occupants of the school. Similarly, any net gain in biodiversity is dependent upon a successful coverage of the willow screens.

4:  EP6

We feel that this proposal is contrary to this policy as It may prove attractive to burglars who may use wall as a means to carry out crime by concealing their activities.

5:  NPPF Section 9 – Protecting Green Belt Land.

Paragraph 81 states that Green Belts, once defined, should be protected by local planning authorities in order to (inter alia) retain and enhance landscapes, visual amenity and biodiversity. It is considered that this proposal fails to meet any of these criteria.

NPPF Section 11 – Preserving and Enhancing the Natural Environment

Para 109 states that the planning system should contribute to and enhance the natural and local environment by protecting and enhancing valued landscapes.

It is considered that this proposal fails in this respect.

The acoustic fencing would be effective in attenuating the noise level from the rear car park area but would do little to mask the effects of sports or play on the field. Nor would it prevent the high spirited noise of pupils arriving or leaving on the coaches parked on the eastern access road.

 

We have particular concerns about Hill End and Old Oak House on School Lane and Flint Meadow and Cherry Tree Cottage on Hockley Lane, mainly because their rear gardens are lower than the height of the car park/ playing area resulting in the 2.5m wall feeling more obtrusive; the perception will be of a doubling of height – perhaps more – of existing garden fencing, but with a solid wall.

 

The acoustic wall offers no protection to Farthing Green Lane, Orchard Cottage and houses further to the south while the playing fields and car parks are in use. We are particularly concerned that the acoustic barrier will funnel and amplify noise created in a southerly direction, potentially worsening the noise impact to properties further away towards Farthing Green Lane.

 

The elevated nature of this site exacerbates any noise created meaning that any measures taken to mitigate noise are likely to be unsuccessful.

 

There are no measures in place to stop pupils from breeching the wall into no go zones or to discourage pupils from climbing on it. This could result in pupils gathering behind or on the wall and causing disturbance to residents.

 

The foundations for the wall are approximately 1metre deep this means disturbing contamination. Remedial works took place to remove contaminated hot spots but only to a depth of 20cm.

 

1:   Policy GB1 – Development in the Green Belt.

 

The proposed installation of acoustic fencing represents inappropriate development in the greenbelt; it meets none of the development criteria.

 

It is considered that this proposal would adversely affect the character of the Greenbelt and the amenity of nearby properties. (GB (i) & (ii)).

 

2:   Policy EP3 – The Design, Use, and layout of Development.

 

It is considered that this development has the potential to be detrimental to the character and amenity of nearby properties by reason of visual intrusion through scale and use of materials. (EP3 (e) & (f)).

 

It is noted that the acoustic fence consists of a masonry core with “living willow” panels on both sides. There is no guarantee that the natural willow will naturalise and adequately cover the core materials; residents could be left with a 2.5m masonry wall at the rear of their properties.

 

3:   South Bucks Local Development Framework –

 

      Core Strategy 9  Natural Environment.

 

This policy concerns the conservation and enhancement of the natural environment, stating that development should not “harm the landscape character or nature conservation interests, unless the importance of the development outweighs the harm caused”.

 

Although this proposal proposes a natural willow covering to the masonry structure there is no evidence that coverage will be complete and that large areas of bare block work wouldn’t be seen by residents and occupants of the school. Similarly, any net gain in biodiversity is dependent upon a successful coverage of the willow screens.

 

4:  EP6

 

     We feel that this proposal is contrary to this policy as It may            prove attractive to burglars who may use wall as a means to carry out crime by concealing their activities.

 

5:  NPPF Section 9 – Protecting Green Belt Land.

 

Paragraph 81 states that Green Belts, once defined, should be protected by local planning authorities in order to (inter alia) retain and enhance landscapes, visual amenity and biodiversity. It is considered that this proposal fails to meet any of these criteria.

 

NPPF Section 11 – Preserving and Enhancing the Natural Environment

 

Para 109 states that the planning system should contribute to and enhance the natural and local environment by protecting and enhancing valued landscapes.

 

It is considered that this proposal fails in this respect.

 

 

 

16/01741/FUL             38 Pennylets Green, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4BT

Single storey rear extension incorporating vehicular access and hardstanding.

Parish Comments:-  No comment on the extension, however we express concerns over existing lack of parking issues which could be exacerbated by the provision of a new access to the bend of Pennylets Green/Bunby Road.  Policy TR5 applies.

 

16/01717/FUL             4 Elderfield Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DE

Front porch, part single storey/part two storey side/rear extension.

Parish Comments:- Noting the previous refusal we note it has been modified and reduced, however we still have concerns over obtrusiveness, the nature of these houses are modest houses.  EP3 and H11 still apply.

16/01659/FUL             Land adjacent to St. Andrews Church Centre, Rogers lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LN

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

Object, This location is congested already and removing parking spaces is ludicrous, TR7 (a) appendix 6 applies.

We have witnessed parking issues which spill out on to the narrow road whilst the church is in use for worship and for commercial rentals.  This is next to the school which already has major parking and congestion problems. 

Planning permission 09/00329/FUL contained permission for two dwellings for church workers, both of these dwellings have always been rented our commercially so we would question why the church requires additional accommodation for church workers when they are not using their existing accommodation from this original planning permission application.

EP3 (b), (d) & (f) and EP4 all apply and this is in or adjacent to the Conservation Area.

For those of you who wish to comment, here are the local and national policies that cover this application. You do not need to use every policy in your comments and copies will not be counted.

 

Greenbelt GB1

The proposed installation of acoustic fencing represents inappropriate development in the greenbelt.

It is considered that this proposal would adversely affect the character of the Greenbelt and the amenity of nearby properties.

 

The Design, Use, and layout of Development. EP3 It is considered that this development has the potential to be detrimental to the character and amenity of nearby properties by reason of visual intrusion through scale and use of materials. There is no guarantee that the willow panels will naturalise and adequately cover the 2.5m high masonry wall.

 

Designing to reduce Crime. EP6

The nature of the wall may encourage pupils to climb on it. It may also attract burglars to use it as a means to carry out crime by concealing their activities.

 

Core Strategy 9  Natural Environment.

This development will harm the landscape, character, nature and conservation interests. Although this proposal proposes a natural willow covering to the masonry structure there is no evidence that coverage will be complete or provide permanent  coverage resulting in large areas of bare block work being seen by residents and occupants of the school, causing an urban appearance not in harmony with the Greenbelt. Similarly, any net gain in biodiversity is dependent upon a successful year round coverage of the willow screens.

 

National Planning Policy Framework

This clearly states that Green Belts, once defined, should be protected by local planning authorities in order to retain and enhance landscapes, visual amenity and biodiversity. It is considered that this proposal fails to meet any of these criteria (paragraph 81).

Any planning system should contribute and enhance the natural and local environment by protecting and enhancing valued landscapes. It is considered that this proposal fails in this respect.
