Councillors reject four-house plan
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
