Plans for a new 5G mast and a church’s new windows have been rejected, while Red Kite’s bid to demolish 20 garages has been approved.

These are just some of the many applications considered by Buckinghamshire Council over the past seven days.

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

New windows refused at St Andrews Church, Hatters Lane, High Wycombe (23/08064/MINAMD)

Planners have refused parts of the Wycombe church’s plans for a two-storey extension, including three Velux roof lights.

St Andrews was also told it could not remove two columns of the new canopy or change the canopy’s material from stone cladding to a ‘through colour’ render.

A planning officer said these amendments were not ‘non-material’ as the application suggested but were in fact ‘material’ and would therefore require planning permission.

The details relate to the church’s already-approved planning permission for a part single, part two-storey extension and alterations to the car park and access (19/06692/FUL).

Red Kite demolishing 20 garages to build house at Five Acres to the rear Of 50, 52, 58 and 58A Holtspur Avenue and 1 to 4 The Meads, Holtspur Avenue, Wooburn Green (22/07919/FUL)

The council has given Red Kite permission to bulldoze the garages and replace them with a detached single-storey home.

The housing association originally planned two houses but has since scaled back its proposals to a single three-bedroom house for six people.

However, the amended plans were still unpopular with one neighbour, who wrote: “The new housing is directly behind our private back garden.

“It will block almost all of the sunlight from our garden as well as protruding above our pre-existing fence and making our building unsightly.”

New 5G mast refused, verge outside Woodhill Lodge, Oxford Road, Gerrards Cross (PL/23/4038/RM)

The council refused the new 20m high ‘monopole’, antennas and other equipment due to it being “sited in a prominent location where it would be visible within the street scene”.

A planning officer said: “Given its height and form the proposed monopole and associated equipment would cause unacceptable harm to the character and the appearance of the area.”
