PPC Decision: oppose
PPC Comments:

The Parish Council advertises all applications on our web site, Facebook page, twitter feed and noticeboards. We also hand deliver letters to near neighbours. Written objections were received from the immediate neighbours at number 10.

The application was considered by the full council on 30 June 2022 (with both the applicant and their immediate neighbours present) where it was resolved to advise Buckinghamshire Council that the Parish Council was opposed to this application on the following grounds:

• Whilst it was recognised that the site lies inside the Pitstone Settlement Boundary, the parish council believes the application is in breach of Policy 6 of the Pitstone Neighbourhood Development plan in terms of scale, mass, density and height, as well as giving rise to other material planning considerations which count against the proposed development.
• The creation of an additional dwelling at this location would be an overdevelopment of the plot and would look incongruous in this location.
• This site is not an ‘infill’ between 2 existing houses as stated in the application. Only the side of number 12 runs along Marsworth Road whereas the neighbouring flats are set back from the road with a dedicated car park accessed via a different route. After number 12 (the garden of which includes the application site) there are no other properties facing directly onto the south side of Marsworth Road until its junction with Rushendon Furlong, some 400 yards distant.
• Development of an additional two storey dwelling at this location would cause an unacceptable loss of light to the adjacent property, number 10.
• Development of an additional two storey dwelling at this location would cause an unacceptable level of overlooking into number 10, especially from the proposed/potential roof garden.
• The footprint of the proposed development sits over one of the two areas currently used by number 12 for car parking. The parish council is aware of some uncertainty about whether number 12’s remaining parking area could realistically accommodate two vehicles.
• The parish council also does not believe that the proposed parking, and turning, indicated for the new dwelling is compliant with the associated policies, nor physically workable in reality.

The parish council would also draw the planning authority’s attention to the needs arising from the recently issued Chiltern’s Beechwoods guidance in relation to additional dwellings within the parish, and we note that no such mitigating measures/considerations have been included within this application.

Discussed by PPC on: 14/04/2022
PPC Decision: Opposed
PPC Comments:

It was RESOLVED to advise Buckinghamshire Council that the Parish Council was opposed to this application:
• Whilst the application site is inside the settlement boundary, and the application is only an outline one, a 3-bedroomed property of the scale and size indicated within the application would nonetheless constitute an overdevelopment of this location and be overbearing for the surrounding chalet bungalows and the narrow gardens of nearby terraced properties.
• The application would similarly contravene policy 6i of the Pitstone Neighbourhood Plan which states “Development proposals will be supported provided: i. their scale, density, massing, height, landscape design, layout and materials, including alterations to existing buildings, reflect and enhance the character and scale of the surrounding buildings and of distinctive local landscape features; …”
• We also ask Buckinghamshire Council to consider the new Chiltern Beechwoods Special Area of Conservation requirements to limit additional residential dwellings.
It was RESOLVED to advise Buckinghamshire Council that the Parish Council wished this application to be called-in to committee should BC be minded approving.

PPC Decision: No objection but consideration for conditions (see below)
PPC Comments:

The Parish Council advertises all applications on our web site, Facebook page, twitter feed and noticeboards. We also hand deliver letters to near neighbours. The council received one objection relating to this application.

The application was considered by the full council on 25/11/21 where it was resolved to advise Buckinghamshire Council that the Parish Council has no objections to this application however it requests that BC consider conditions in relation to:

* measures to minimise the noise disturbance and visual amenity for the residential properties on the opposite side of Westfield Road such raised bunding with tree planting to act as visual/noise screen
* a restriction that delivery times should be restricted to (for example) 7am-7pm to prevent very early morning/late night disturbance

It was also noted that the plot has been vacant for so long that wildlife including deer and foxes currently utilise the area. Whilst we appreciate that the site is designated for business use and needs to be developed as such, could BC please ensure that suitable measures are put in place to account for the relocation/care etc of the wildlife.
