PLANS to overhaul a derelict site for new homes have sparked concerns it will create a “mini estate” on a residential road.

Oliver and Daniel Randell have submitted to Bucks Council plans to overhaul land between 17 Lovel Road and 60 Lansdown Road, in Chalfont St Peter.

Plans outline the demolition of the existing two-bed bungalow (17 Lovel Road) and the erection of nine houses (three two-bed, five three-bed, one four-bed), two “garage blocks” and one carport.

Twenty-four parking spaces will be provided.

There will also be a new combined access from Lovel Road.

The site is a former builders’ and storage yard, owned by the Randell family, according to a report.

And, while the applicant claims the scheme will recycle an “unattractive, derelict” plot, some locals feel it is an “overdevelopment” creating a “mini estate” that will impact parking on a residential road.

“I am making this objection on behalf of my mother who lives in Lansdown Road,” said Mrs Teresa York. “I also have an interest in her property.

“I feel this an overdevelopment of a small site, the houses and garage blocks seem very cramped.

“As with all new developments there is not enough parking. When visiting my mother, it is always difficult to find parking. This development will only make it worse.”

“We wish to express our concern about the additional traffic on the street, safe entrance and exit of the site, and additional pressure on parking spaces,” said Mr Mark Nicholas.

“These will all increase the risk of injury to pedestrians and bicycle users, which will include many school children, including those on their way to the infant school at Lovel End.”

“The creation of this development will create a mini estate within a residential road that will also be out of keeping with the area,” said Mrs Linda Birch. “This proposed development is too dense for this size of plot.”

“This is a well-considered proposal which…is appropriate, and will recycle this unattractive, derelict, underused site into attractive and sustainable residential accommodation,” a planning statement reads.

Planning officers will now decide what becomes of the application.
