APPENDIX 1

DELEGATED DECISIONS

APPENDIX 2

 NEW PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED

PL/20/1659/FA                  Top Cottage, Hollybush Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PX

Demolition of existing dwelling house and erection of a new dwelling house and detached garage.  AMENDED PLAN.

Parish Comments:- OBJECT Policies TR5 EP3 H9 C8 NPPF Sec16 all apply.

We believe this proposal would adversely affect the character and amenities of the street scene and the locality in general. It would fail to add positively to the features of the site itself and the surrounding environment.

Top Cottage has been identified as a Non-Designated Heritage Asset status fully supported by Historic England . This status enhances the general locality and adds worth and a such should be protected. The new proposal adds no value and is over dominant, obtrusive and does not respect the space it sits in. A replacement dwelling would need to be of an acceptable design seeking to preserve the character of the locality in general, the proposal fails to achieve this.

There are concerns over access to the proposed site as is sits in a narrow track with no turning space. 

Section 16 of the NPPF considers, inter alia, buildings of local historic value. In particular clause 184 states that these assets are an irreplaceable resource which should be conserved in manner appropriate to their significance so that they can be enjoyed for their contribution to the quality of life of existing and future generations.

NPPF clause 192 states that in determining applications the local planning authority should take account of the desirability of sustaining a heritage asset, the positive contribution that conservation of heritage assets can make and the desirability of new developments making a positive contribution to local character and distinctiveness. We would suggest that on this last point this application falls woefully short of meeting that criteria.

Harm to heritage assets is further considered in paragraphs 193 to 202. In particular paragraph 197 advices that balanced planning judgements should be taken having regard to the significance of non-designated heritage assets and the scale of any harm or loss. Clause 194 specifically states that any harm or loss should require a clear and convincing justification. 

Paragraph 195 of the NPPF is also very clear. It states that where a proposed development would lead to substantial harm or total loss of an asset consent should be refused unless …”it can be demonstrated that ….the loss..is necessary to achieve substantial public benefits that outweighs ….the loss.” That is clearly not the case here.

The applicant states that there is a need for larger family houses in Stoke Poges. The Parish Council wholeheartedly disagree with this. Most new housing stock are large detached 4-6 bedroom houses. There is a shortage of smaller housing suitable for first time buyers and those wishing to down size. Stoke Poges is in need of mixed stock housing and should retain its houses of character and authenticity 

PL/20/4437/FA                  67 Hazell Way, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 4DG

Demolition of existing covered yard, removal of existing chimney, erection of single storey first floor rear extension.

Certificate of Lawfulness for existing Use of Land for agriculture to include growing plants, parking agricultural machinery, storage of pots, compost and other items to be used of the horticultural nursery.

Parish Comments:- We have concerns about the applicant stating that this land has been owned and in use for more than 10 years. We believe the Land Registry records should be checked and would urge the Council to do so. To our knowledge this land was recently purchased and not part of the original Pinewood Nurseries.

There are also concerns about the numerous commercial entities renting space on the site, therefore we are not sure if this parcel of land is being rented out or used by the land-owner.

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.

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

Hereby Permits

APPEALS

Change of use of the existing ancillary outbuilding to an independent dwelling (Use Class C3).

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

Parish Comments to Appeal Process and Planning Inspectorate: –

Amendment written reps to original comments by 1st June 2020. As this is an appeal, we believe our previous comments as above are still valid.

This proposal constitutes inappropriate development within the Green Belt, which by definition is harmful. No very special circumstances have been demonstrated 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. 2.

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.

Change of use of the existing ancillary outbuilding to an independent dwelling (Use Class C3).

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

Parish Comments to Appeal Process and Planning Inspectorate: –

Amendment written reps to original comments by 1st June 2020. As this is an appeal, we believe our previous comments as above are still valid.

This proposal constitutes inappropriate development within the Green Belt, which by definition is harmful. No very special circumstances have been demonstrated sufficient to warrant an exception to the normal operation of Green Belt policy.

PLANNING DECISIONS

PL/20/3222/FA                  Magnolia Cottage, Wexham Street, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL3 6NB

Single storey side extension

Parish Comments: – No comments so long as that does not breach the Green Belt 50% rules.

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

PL/20/0995/FA – Jasmine Lodge, Keens Acre, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QA

Parish Comments:- No comment

Hereby Refuse Permission

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).

Hereby Refuse Permission

PL/20/2990/FA                  8 Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LD

Parish Comments: – No Comment.

Hereby Permits

PL/20/3187/SA                  Duffield Cottage, Park Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PA

Certificate of Lawfulness for proposed outbuilding to replace existing shed.

Hereby Certify – Planning Permission not required.

APPEALS

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.

Hereby Refuses Permission

Appeal received against refusal – Written Reps by 18 January 2021
