Plans to extend a manufacturing facility have been approved – despite loss of light concerns.

Bucks Council has permitted a planning application submitted by Wood Waste Control Ltd, Soho Mills Industrial Estate, Wooburn Green.

Plans detail the partial demolition of the existing building and the raising of the roof in connection with creation of a three-storey building for warehouse and production use.

The redevelopment is to “increase usable floor area but within the same building footprint”, documents state.

Several objections were previously submitted.

Mr Charles Dunn at Unit 4a said: “I am concerned about the reduction of natural light this size of extension would have on my workshop.”

Mr Trevor Scott at Unit 4 added: “I am very concerned that a three-storey building adjoining my premises will reduce the natural light that comes through skylights that run the entire length of our building.”

While Mr Brown at Unit 1 wrote: “The development proposal at the adjacent unit Wood Waste Control shows an increase in bulk, and notably height, that dwarfs this Victorian era building and represents an unacceptable intrusion on the building ambience and business activities at Unit 1.”
