Coun­cil­lors re­ject four-house plan

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL­LORS have unan­i­mously re­jected plans to build four fourbed­room houses next to an­cient wood­land in Den­ham amid fears of overde­vel­op­ment.

At a South Bucks District Coun­cil plan­ning meet­ing held on Wed­nes­day April 13, coun­cil­lors also ques­tioned why pro­pos­als in­cluded plans to build win­dows in the roofs, with the pos­si­bil­ity this could lead to more bed­rooms be­ing built.

Out­line plan­ning per­mis­sion for the site on Den­ham Green Lane was con­tro­ver­sially granted in June last year, and cov­ered the re­de­vel­op­ment of the site to pro­vide four de­tached houses and the widen­ing of the ac­cess road.

Mat­ters scale, land­scap­ing and ap­pear­ance were as­sessed at the meet­ing last week, with coun­cil­lors rais­ing con­cerns over the size, the height and the ‘dom­i­nance’ of the houses.

Lin Hazell said: “This seems to be far more dom­i­nant and larger than I feel I was given an im­pres­sion of.”

Speak­ing af­ter­wards, neigh­bour April Hol­lands said: “I’m glad they fi­nally started to ask ques­tions – I just wish they asked ques­tions ear­lier.” of
