Listed Building Consent for Erection of a multi-purpose space and ancillary rooms and refurbishment of Grade II Listed Sefton Park School.

Parish Comments: – We have no objections as far as the refurbishment of the Grade II Listed building is concerned.  However we OBJECT to the addition of the multi-purpose space as we believe its design is totally out of keeping in this historically sensitive location.

PL/19/3143/FA                   Focus School, Stoke Poges Campus, School Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4QA

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

Parish Comments:-  No Comment

Hereby Permits

PL/19/2264/FA                   Firs Field Storage Building, Duffield Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks.

Erection of detached dwelling following demolition of the existing storage building.

Hereby Permits

PL/19/1990/FA                   Aramghar, Park Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PJ

Two storey side extensions.

Parish Council Comments:  We believe that the scale is not in character and EP3a, b, c and H9a and b apply.

This proposal together with previous extensions that have been carried out to the dwellinghouse would, by virtue of the resultant size and scale of the building when considered in relation to the original building and its potentially 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 other similar proposals, would detrimentally affect the aims and objectives of the Green Belt.  As such, the proposal is contrary to the Policies GB1 and GB10 of the South Bucks District Local Plan (adopted March 1999).

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

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 District Planning Authority would find increasingly difficult to resist and which, cumulatively, would further seriously prejudice the openness of the Green Belt and the aims and objectives of the Green Belt Policy.

APPENDIX 1

DELEGATED DECISIONS

APPENDIX 2

 NEW PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED

PL/19/2119/FA                   Thames House, Bells Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EH

Demolition of the existing car showroom and the erection of a 2 and a half storey mixed use building comprising a car showroom at ground level, and 8 x 2 bed flats on the first and second floors.  Retention of existing workshop to the rear with 2 MOT bays.  Provision of car parking spaces, cycle storage area, and bin store.

Parish Comments: – Parish Comments: – OBJECT. 

Policies EP3 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (f), EP4 (c), EP5 (a) & (b), H9 (a), (b) & (c), TR 7 (d) EP16,  NPPF 124 all apply.

The applicant uses EP6 which we believe is NOT relevant to this application.

The proposed extensions would result in the creation of a large, bulky and unattractive structure of excessive depth, and with a large expanse of the roof at high level. The dwelling would be lacking in pleasing proportions and would fail to respect the traditional character. The excessive depth of the extended building would be apparent in angled views from the road, and would result in an unduly bulky appearance that would be at odds with the traditional proportions of the existing building and would be out of keeping with the general character of this residential area.

This is contrary to the NPPF 124, Not a good design and an urbanising feature, it is too far forward of the existing building line.

The size, bulk, height is incongruent with its surroundings and the design layout and fenestrations are in keeping with an urbanised development, Stoke Poges is classified as a semi-rural village.

EP16 does not fit with residential use from a safety perspective.  There are hazardous substances fundamental to the business such as oil storage etc., and there appears to be no fire escape other than the front entrance.

The lay of the land is on a hill so the development is over dominant in relation to the houses on Rogers Lane, 129, 127, 125, 123 & 121 leading to loss of amenity and privacy. 

The lack of landscaping will also contribute massively to the appearance of an urban development.

PL/19/2617/FA                   7 Red Lion Cottages, Stoke Green, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4HP

Vehicular access and construction of hardstanding for one vehicle (part retrospective).

Parish Comments:-  OBJECT Policies C1 (a) No. 2, C1 (b) No. 7, C6 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (e) all apply!   With reference to the County Council Highways stating there are no parking restrictions on Stoke Green is completely wrong, the whole road is subject to double yellow lines making this report incorrect!!

PL/19/2618/HB                  7 Red Lion Cottages, Stoke Green, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4HP

Listed Building Consent for Vehicular access and construction of hardstanding for one vehicle (part retrospective).

Parish Comments:-  No Objection subject to the arboriculturalists report

PL/19/2719/FA                   51 Hazell Way, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DD

Loft conversion with rear dormer.

Parish Comments:-  No Comment

PL/19/2701/FA                   Site of Linkswood, West End Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks,

Erection of boundary wall and gate.

Parish Comments:-  OBJECT The proposed front boundary wall, if permitted, would result in a visually intrusive road-side feature that would appear prominent in the street scene, the predominant existing roadside features of which are mostly soft vegetative boundaries rather than formal engineered structures.  This would have an urbanising impact on the locality and would have a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the street scene.  As such it is considered that this element of the proposal is contrary to policy EP3 of the SBD local plan.

Paragraph 3.3 of  the Townscape Study refers to Woodland Roads and actually has a picture of West End Lane clearly showing it as a Woodland Road!

If minded to approve we believe that this would lead to a precursor which would change the nature of this lovely Woodland Road.

PL/19/2674/FA                   78 Rogers Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LF
