The 2010 applications and reports are shown below as they may still be of concern today. We watch the progress of all local applications, which sometimes remain live for long periods of time.
Mill Works, Bury Street
Following the decision at the last meeting, a letter was sent to the Council objecting to the application for three electronically controlled gates on this development.
Update on other matters
Two long outstanding applications have finally been resolved :
At 53 Pinn Way the proposed large two-storey extension has been refused. The lead objector has written to the Association thanking us for our support of local residents.
Local Development Framework Core Strategy Consultation
Following the discussion at our last committee meeting comments were received from several members. These together with other points were incorporated into a response, which was emailed to the Council on 29/07/10.
Residents Planning Forum 24/07/10
Peter Lansdown , Sue Browne and John Williams attended the latest meeting at the Civic Centre. By contrast with the previous meeting, when officers expressed concern at the poor attendance, there were 19 delegates present. This ensured a lively meeting. Apart from the items reported below (Core Strategy, Government policy and permitted development) officers updated the meeting on various developments, including :
a mosque in Royal Lane, Hillingdon
Environmental Agency concerns about ground water contamination resulting from the proposed development at the Civic Amenity site in New Years Green Lane
We have raised queries with the Planning Department regarding several recent developments.
51 Breakspear Road
A new loft extension is not shown on the list of planning applications. As the work appears to conflict with the permitted development rules this has been queried with the Head of Planning. We have been asked if we wish an officer to investigate. I propose to say yes please.
58 St Martins Approach
The application for a Certificate of Lawfulness for a proposed loft extension states work has not commenced. In fact it is nearly complete. In a similar case officers gave this as one reason why they were unable to determine an application for proposed works when the work had already commenced.
88 High Street
First floor extension with change of use from Class C2 (dwelling) to A1 (retail) plus conversion of roof space to habitable use with access to rear. Interestingly the ground floor is currently occupied by Replay Sports Direct.
Mckenzie House, Bury Street
Auden Mckenzie (Pharma division) Ltd are proposing to create a second floor level to be used as part office, part research & development plus new canopy to ground floor rear and alterations to parking. Having viewed the site I would not have thought that this proposal would be particularly contentious.
11 Evelyn Ave Work has resumed on the two storey rear extension reported last month. It appears this may be within the limits allowed under permitted development.
Update on current Applications
Decisions are still awaited on 53 Pinn Way and the Stone Masons Yard, Withy Lane
78 Eastcote Road An application for a side/rear extension. The neighbour at No 80 has written to the Association seeking support to his objections.
(Includes items published in LBH Weekly Planning Lists between 30/01/10 and 20/02/10)
Mill Works, Bury Street the revised application for 66 homes was approved last week.
11 Evelyn Ave A resident has raised concerns that building work currently in hand may not comply with planning regulations. We are awaiting further details.
Update on current Applications
Decisions are awaited on 53 Pinn Way and the Stone Masons Yard, Withy Lane
(Includes items published in LBH Weekly Planning Lists between 02/01/10 and 23/01/10)
Mill Works, Bury Street We have written to the Council with further comments on the revised proposals for 66 dwellings. We understand the application is still under consideration.
53 Pinn Way The application for a large side and rear extension to the property is still under consideration.
Stone masons Yard, Withy Lane A new application for the demolition of existing buildings and construction of 5 flats. We propose to review and comment if appropriate.
