A plan to extend a High Wycombe home has been scrapped as neighbours’ privacy would be ‘invaded’.

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

Extension scrapped, Ridgeway House, Heathfield Road, High Wycombe (24/05014/FUL)

A planning application for the extension of a house in High Wycombe has been withdrawn after complaints from neighbours.

The owners of Ridgeway House, Kasmira Smarzo and Alistair Armstrong-Brown had planned to extend the second floor of their home.

This would have involved the partial demolition of the existing roof, chimney and first floor windows, the addition of new first floor walls and roof, fixing solar panels to the new roof and the creation of a new staircase.

The applicants said the extension was necessary to accommodate their ‘expanding family’, however they later withdrew their application after complaints from neighbours.

The next-door neighbour claimed the extended house would not be in keeping with the rest of the street and added: “The proposed plan invades privacy of neighbouring properties at front and back.”

Planners refuse 3m high extension, 12 Morten Gardens Denham Green, (PL/24/0088/PNE)

Planners have rejected an application for a large extension that would ‘block neighbours’ sunlight’.

Applicants Stefan and Claudia Ionescu had planned to build a single storey rear extension that would be 6m deep and 3.21m high.

A planning officer refused their application, writing: “The proposed extension would result in adverse impacts on the levels of light and residential amenity of any adjoining premises.”

Plan to bulldoze barns for five new homes at Grymsdyke Farm, Main Road, Lacey Green (24/05331/PIP)

Kebbell Homes has applied to demolish the existing commercial buildings to be replaced by five four-bedroom properties.

The land, which is classed as a brownfield site is located on the southern edge of Lacey Green, within the Green Belt and Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A planning statement reads: “Access to the site is gained from Main Road, via a shared drive which serves several residential dwellings, a nursery and a single office building.”
