Developers want to build at Farm Cottage

Each week, the Express publishes public notices containing important informatio­n affecting the community you live in. These statutory notices help keep the wider public informed about key issues, from plans to develop a block of flats to an applicatio­n by your local bar or pub to serve alcohol for longer.

In the public notices this week, developers are looking to build three homes in Farnham Common and a road closure is plannedon Twist Way at the end of February.


Developers are looking to build three detached homes on land at Farm Cottage on Collinswoo­d Road, Farnham Common.

The applicatio­n also seeks to build a public recreation space on land at Farm Cottage and Collinswoo­d.

The applicatio­n has one objection from its neighbour, Burnham Beeches Estate Office, as the applicatio­n site will be only 460m from the boundary of Burnham Beeches nature reserve.

The office believes being less than 500m from the boundary will contribute to increased visitors at the reserve – and resulting increases in general wear and tear, litter, light and noise pollution, dog fouling, fire risk and disturbanc­e to wildlife.

Burnham Beeches Estate Office feels this would ‘adversely affect the protected features’ of Burnham Beeches.

This applicatio­n is classed as a major developmen­t. To see more informatio­n, enter the planning reference PL/22/0215/FA into the Chiltern and South Bucks section of Buckingham­shire council’s planning portal.

Meanwhile, at Farnham Lane in Farnham Royal, developers are looking to install four non illuminate­d hoardings (a temporary boarded fence in a public place), five graphic panels and one monolith sign at Berkeley House (Berkeley Homes Oxford & Chiltern).

To see more, enter PL/22/0334/AV into the planning portal.


Slough council is looking to close the road at Twist Way, Slough from number 65 (SL2 2QG) to 63 (SL2 2LU) for roadworks.

If the road closure order is made, it will begin at one minute past midnight on Monday, February 28 and is expected to be completed by 11.59 on Thursday, March 4.

Failing this, the road can be closed for a maximum of 18 months.

Advanced warning notices will be at the locations advising of the dates the works will be carried out. Access will be maintained for all local residents and businesses.
