Council refuse amendment to planning application at former Live and Let Live public house, Booker Common
Wycombe District Council have refused a planning application to erect one three bed detached dwelling and one four bed detached dwelling with parking and amenity space (alternative scheme for plots 1 & 2 as permitted under pp/11/07884/FUL) at the Live & Let Live, Booker Common, High Wycombe.
The planing application, reference 14/07693/FUL , made by Bramley Homes was received by Wycombe District Council on Tuesday 21st October 2014. It was an amendment to a planning application approved by Wycombe District Council in 2011.
Seven letters were received by Wycombe District Council objecting to the alternative planning application including from the Booker Woods and Common Preservation Society and from the Open Spaces Society.
The planning permission was in relation to a proposal to construct two houses on the former car park of the Live and Let Live public house which was recently extended and converted to a four bed house.
The reason given for the refusal of planning permission was the increased, scale, bulk and mass of the dwellings coupled with them occupuing most of the width of the plots. The limited space between the proposed houses was judged to represent a cramped, overdevelopment of the site to the detriment of the character an appearance of the area.
It was also judged to represent an unbeighbourly form of development when viewed from the dewllings at No. 19 and 21 Willow Avenue.
The planning application was refused on Wednesday 10th December 2014.
