15/02477/FUL 3 Clevehurst Close, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EP

Replacement dwelling and construction of vehicular access.

Parish Comments:-  Object, this whole application contravenes the following policies:-  EP3 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (e), H9 (a) & (b), H10 (a), (b), (c), (d), & (e), EP5 (a) & (b)

The east elevation to number 5 Clevehurst Close will suffer a complete loss of light into their ground floor bay window, the window is not shown on the applicants plans!!!  The living accommodation over the garage at number 5 Clevehurst Close will also suffer loss of light issues due to the 60 degree rule not being applied. 

The applicant has quoted policies EP6 TR5 and TR7, we do not believe that these are relevant to application. 

We do not believe that this development fits or enhances the street scene in any way, it is over dominant and not in scale with the surrounding houses and does not respect or harmonise with surrounding houses, and will prevent loss of daylight to neighbours. 

Contrary to the NPPF paragraph 60 we believe that this does not reflect local distinctiveness.

If minded to approve we believe that this will act as a precursor for further inappropriate redevelopment and over development of this distinctive road.

Refusal of Planning Permission

15/02459/FUL Arklow, Church Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4NZ

Detached Garage.

Parish Comments:-  Object based on the fact that we believe this will be habitable accommodation and is over development in the Green Belt.  Policies GB1, GB10, H13 (c) and (h) all apply.

Refusal of Planning Permission

15/02397/FUL Kulm, Stoke Wood, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4BA

Part two storey/part first floor side/rear extensions incorporating attached garage and orangery.

Parish Comments:-  Object, Policies L10, EP4, GB1, GB10 and section 9 of the NPPF all apply.  Overall it is impossible to tell from the plans what is happening as they are inadequate just like the last application where we commented the following:-

We are unable to make any comments on this application because the drawings are wholly inadequate to enable us to make any decision, and it is impossible to work out what is being proposed and if it is within the 50% rules in the Green Belt.  We would request that this application is refused and request that new adequate drawings be submitted.

A previous application 15/01584/FUL which was refused by the case officer for the following reason

also apply to this application:-    

Full Planning Permission

15/02441/FUL 31 Penn Meadow, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EB

Front Porch, two storey side and rear extension.

Parish Comments:-  Object, Policy EP3 applies.  We believe that this will be a precursor in a road with 3 bedroomed semi’s changing the character of the road completely.

Full Planning Permission

15/02215/FUL 16 Penn Meadow, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4EB

Erection of a detached two storey dwelling.  Associated car parking and alterations to vehicular access.

Parish Comments: – The Parish Council welcome smaller property development as there is a shortage of them in this village, however the depth of this development does not harmonise well in the street scene.  To comply with policies EP3, H9 and EP5 we are concerned about the depth and massing impacting on light and amenities.  If the building was to be moved forward to be in line with existing building lines next door this would alleviate this problem.  If minded to approve we would ask that you remove permitted development rights.

Parish Comments:-  No Comment.
