APPENDIX 2

NEW PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED

 

17/00825/OUT                    Temple Cottage, Templewood Lane, Stoke Poges SL2 3HW

Outline application for two detached dwelling houses with formation of vehicular access.

Parish Comments:- Firstly one of the covering letters refers to application 17/00196/FUL which has nothing to do with this application and relates to a house called Foxhollow!!

We object to this application based on the drawings which have no proper measurements, and we cannot make a judgement on the 50% rules. We are also concerned over properties in this area with basements due to the water table in this area. The entrance is a big concern being on such a small road and on a bend, and it will become a busy junction.

 

17/00770/TPO                    26 Elderfield Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DE

T1 Oak – Crown thinning by 30% (SBDC TPO No 09, 2010)

Parish Comments:- No objections subject to the arboriculturalists report.

 

17/00352/FUL                    Davel House, Keens Acre, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4FB

Amendment to PP 15/00501/FUL to allow for increase in roof height.

Parish Comments:- No Comment

 

17/00879/FUL                    South Lodge, Rickmans Lane, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4AF

Two storey rear extension.

Parish Comments:- In principal we have no objections, but believe this is in the Green Belt and has already extended over the 50% green belt rules.

 

17/00861/LBC                    Stoke House, Grays Park Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks,

Listed Building Application for: Internal and external alterations.

Parish Comments:- No Objection.

 

17/00914/FUL                    Jolanka, Stoke Court Drive, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4LU

Two storey side/rear extension incorporating integral garage, rear balcony and alterations to fenestration.

Parish Comments:- We do not believe this is in the Green Belt but a Greent Belt calculation has been submitted, which would then make us query the 50% Green Belt rules!

 

17/00929/FUL                    27 Broom Hill, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4PU

Construction of three terraced dwellings with associated vehicular accesses.

Parish Comments:- Object our previous comments apply which were:-

OBJECT Policies EP3 (a), (b), (c), (d) & (e). H9 (a) & (b) and TR7 (a), (b), (c) & (d) all apply.

This application is an over dominance of the site and is totally out of character with its surroundings. The style of the development of Terraced Houses will set a precedent within our semi-rural area. It does not meet the criteria and characteristics as laid out in the South Bucks Townscape Character Study.

We would also question the amount of parking spaces not being enough.

 

17/00961/FUL                    77 Vine Road, Stoke Poges, Bucks, SL2 4DQ

Single storey rear extension.

Parish Comments:- No Comment

 

17/00993/CLUED              2 Woodbine Cottages, Gerrards Cross Road, Stoke Poges, SL2 4EL

Application for Certificate of Lawfulness for existing: Use of an outbuilding as a separate self-contained dwelling.

Parish Comments:- Object our previous comments still apply which were:-

Object, we have serious concerns about this, appendix 9 & 10, H12, H13, GB2 (g) i, ii, iii, iv & v all apply.  Please refer to the many previous planning refusals and appeals.

We also agree with the previous refusal reasons from SBDC. We have seen the letters purporting to be from tenants, has it been checked that these were on the electoral registers when they say they were living there or have you seen any other evidence that confirms their residency.

Joint statement from Leaders of Chiltern DC and South Bucks DC following Grenfell Tower fire [OFFICIAL]

We are aware that following the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower in Kensington, people will understandably be concerned about the possibility of something similar happening in our districts.

While we have no tower blocks in Chiltern or South Bucks, our registered accommodation providers do have some large blocks of flats.

We wish to reassure residents that immediate steps were taken when we learned of the Grenfell Tower tragedy requesting that our partner housing associations and housing providers update us on their fire risk assessments. We are also asking for information on any refurbishments that may have been undertaken, particularly any which included external insulation similar in design to that used on the Grenfell Tower building. We are not currently aware of any.

Safety of the people we accommodate is of paramount importance to our two Councils and we take our duty of care very seriously. Our officers work diligently with housing partners, associations and private landlords, to ensure safety standards are maintained but in the light of this recent disaster greater emphasis is being placed on this work, and all accommodation providers are being asked to confirm that comprehensive safety measures, including evacuation procedures, are in place.

We have all seen the footage of the terrible events of the Grenfell Tower fire and the human suffering which continues to unfold. Our thoughts are with those affected, and with the emergency service personnel who have been so professional in the face of unimaginable horror.

For information, please find statements from our housing association colleagues
