A plan for 65 new homes in a Bucks village has taken a huge step forward after Buckinghamshire Council has approved part of the scheme.

This is just one of the many applications considered by the Council in the past seven days.

To view more details for each application, go to the council’s planning portal with the reference number attached.

Plan for 65 homes takes huge step forward, land to the south of Rose Farm, Thame Road, Longwick (23/07557/MDS106)

The development, already partly built, has had a sustainable drainage systems statement approved by the council.

Some families have already moved into properties on Miller Homes Southern’s 7.6-acre Longwick Chase development, which was given planning permission in 2022.

The site on Thame Road is a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached energy-efficient homes, with 27 affordable homes.

Several of the properties are currently being marketed by Miller.

Plan to bulldoze bungalow withdrawn after complaints, Appletrees, Meadle Village Road, Meadle (23/08084/FUL)

The applicant planned to partially demolish the existing house and replace it with a new four-bedroom detached property, including a new floor.

However, they have now withdrawn their plans following complaints from neighbours about the appearance of the new property.

One neighbour wrote: “The proposed flat roofed design is rather ugly and commercial looking in appearance and totally out of keeping with the rest of Meadle.”

Another said: “One mistake now, in permitting this development, will be catastrophic for the village forever. Please also bear in mind that it will set a dangerous precedent for the house adjacent which is also a bungalow.”

House to be demolished despite concerns, 33 Southview Road, Marlow (23/08020/FUL)

The council has permitted the demolition of the 1950s/1960s detached chalet bungalow and garage and the construction of a replacement four-bedroom home.

The new house would be in a similar position to the existing property but nine per cent larger in area.

The plans did not receive any objections, however several residents said they were “concerned”, including the next-door neighbour who said some windows would “allow a view into my sitting room and onto the patio, so I will be losing my privacy”.
