An additional flat could be added to a new development in Marlow, after town councillors gave their approval at a planning meeting this week.

Developers want to add an extra flat to the development near the railway station, at the Old Coal Yard in Station Approach, which was given the green light by Wycombe District Council (WDC) last year.

The development will see the creation of three buildings with four two-bedroom flats and a one-bedroom flats in building one, four two-bedroom flats in building two and three two-bedroom flats in building three, making 12 flats in total if the new flat is given the go-ahead.

Marlow Town Council’s Planning, Environment and Transportation Committee gave its approval to the flat at a meeting on Tuesday, saying they would be happy with the plans as long as sufficient parking was provided by developers to accommodate the new flat.

Bellwood Homes want to add the flat to the roof space of the first building but have said in the design and access statement that no additional parking spaces will be provided since the original proposal was for 13 flats.

They said: “In relation to parking, no additional spaces are proposed as they can’t be fitted in without changing the site layout which would cause other issues.

“Therefore, there will still be a total of 17 spaces for 12 dwellings.”

They also said the additional flat would help meet the “identified need for smaller dwellings” in Marlow.

A decision is expected to be made by WDC by December 26.
