WITH ref­er­ence to the con­ver­sion plan for the for­mer Wild Rover site, as de­tailed on page 10 of the Bucks Examiner/Ad­ver­tiser, Novem­ber 26, 2015.

Re­gard­ing plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion CH/2015/1923/FA, I have al­ready sent my ob­jec­tions to this ap­pli­ca­tion to Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil, as fol­lows:

“I ob­ject in the strong­est pos­si­ble terms to plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion CH/2015/1923/FA (change of use from pub­lic house to use for car sales and res­i­den­tial flat with as­so­ci­at­ing park­ing at The Wild Rover Pub­lic House for Mr A Rashid) for the fol­low­ing rea­sons:

1. The area is to­tally un­suit­able as a car sales site: the site fronts on to the main road (A406) be­tween Che­sham and Amer­sham and there is con­stant traf­fic. Any cars for sale parked on the A406 would cause mas­sive traf­fic prob­lems, or, if parked on the pave­ments, would block pedes­trian ac­cess, which gen­er­ally is a ma­jor prob­lem in Che­sham.

2. Che­sham is the dump­ing ground for sites sell­ing sec­ond-hand cars: I can im­me­di­ately think of six such sites: two on Belling­don Road, one on the cor­ner of Berkhamp­stead Road/Cameron Road, one on Wa­ter­side, one on La­timer Road, one on the for­mer Coal Yard site in Sta­tion Ap­proach.

A small town like Che­sham does not need any more sites sell­ing sec­ond-hand cars.
