Concerns raised over delivery office development plans in Princes Risborough
CONCERNS have been raised about a planning application to convert the former Princes Risborough delivery office into flats.
At last night's Princes Risborough Town Council meeting Cllr Will Streule said the development could change the commercial aspect of this part of the town.
Applicant W.E.Black Ltd has applied to demolish the existing buildings, which was closed and put up for sale by Royal Mail, and build one block comprising of six one bed flats and six two bed flats with associated parking, bin and cycle stores.
Cllr Will Streule said: "Personally I don't think it is very well thought out. I am not opposed to the development of the building. If it is going to sold then fair enough."
But he said that Bell Street is quite a commercial part of the town and he would like to see a development of mixed use- commercial and residential.
Chairman Gary Hall agreed and said: "I think this is a step a little bit in one direction too far, too quickly."
All councillors present agreed for Cllr Streule to send a letter of objection against the change of use to Wycombe District Council.
Today is the last day comments can be made on the application. See link below.
