Ruislip Village Conservation Area Draft Appraisal Document
In response to the Council’s public consultation a letter was sent with some brief comments.
Residents Planning Forum
Mike and John attended the Council’s latest forum. Presentation by officers included an update on major applications including Mill Works, RAF Uxbridge and Porters Way. We expressed concern at the pressure these developments would place on local services and several other delegates supported us. However it appears officers are limited in the extent to which they can take these matters into account when negotiating with developers.
Other presentations included a review of the draft proposals for the High Speed Rail link through Hillingdon and the work of the Conservation section.
We found the meeting both interesting and informative. Unfortunately the attendance was poor and it is possible that if this does not improve officers will have to review the viability of such events.
121 Herlwyn Avenue This contentious case may have finally been settled. The latest planning application to retain part and demolish part of the unauthorised extension was refused by the North Planning Committee at their March meeting. Whether the previous enforcement order to demolish all unapproved building works by 8 April is implemented by that time is doubtful however.
52 Crosier Way Objections have been raised by nearby neighbours to a planning proposal for a loft extension incorporating 2 addl bedrooms and a bathroom on the basis that the dwelling would no longer conform to the existing semi detached bungalows. However whilst John and I gladly offered our assistance it appears that as a certificate of lawfulness has been sought the appn may automatically approved. It will however at least go to the full planning committee at the request of Councillor Douglas Mills.
69-77 Park Way New planning application has been made for conversion of 1st and 2nd floors from BI Office to 4 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom self contained flats. We have not thus far received any objections to these proposals.
126-128 High Street - A planning application has been submitted by Coopers Estate Agents for the installation of 2 x internally illuminated fascia signs.
151 High Street A planning appn for change of use from Class A1 (Shops) to Mixed use Class A3/A5 (Restaurant with takeaway facility) was approved on 5 March. It is not yet known what type of food outlet this will be.
Land Forming Part Of 325 Victoria Road Ruislip - A planning application to construct 2- two storey one bed terraced dwellings and a single storey rear extension on this site was approved on 3rd March.
