Two Bucks councillors have urged locals to come out in force against a major new housing bid on part of a former golf course.

Cllrs Rachael Matthews and Joseph Baum have asked that people in Little Chalfont register objections to plans for 380 homes on land between Lodge Lane and Burtons Lane.

The pair published a video on YouTube of them stood on Lodge Lane declaring that the recent planning application by Biddulph (Buckinghamshire) Ltd is inappropriate.

Plans outline the demolition of all existing buildings and the erection of 213 residential properties (163 houses and 50 flats), including 152 affordable homes and 15 custom builds – plus a 100-unit retirement village and 60-bed care home.

There is also mention of a local centre and public open space.

An area will also be safeguarded for a new primary school or primary school expansion with nursery, if there is requirement.

“A developer has literally just submitted a planning application for housing, about 400 homes on the Green Belt,” said Cllr Baum.

“We both think, and our colleagues think as well who represent Little Chalfont on Bucks Council, we all think that it’s inappropriate, it’s too early – we’re in the process of doing a local plan – and it’s going to destroy our precious environment and do real damage to the local area.

“We want to make sure that your voice, the voice of the community, the voice of the village is heard loud and clear.”

Cllr Matthews added: “If you feel as strongly as Joseph and I and our other councillors do, then please register your objection.”
