A40 & Redhill Road

We would like all residents to write to our local councillor Guy Hollis and log on the Buckinghamshire County Council website using www.fixmystreet.buckscc.gov.uk and report the following

a) The fence between Redhill and the A40 needs to be repaired to avoid a child or an object entering onto the A40 and causing an accident.

b) The bushes on the A40 approaching the exit need to be cut back substantially as visibility is impaired when trying to cross the A40.

c) A speed camera to be installed prior to exit on the A40 to slow down traffic and enable vehicles to cross the A40 safely.

Below are a few photos which you can use to submit. Right click on your mouse to save each.

Gas Works

Cadent/Triio are returning to the Woods to continue to upgrade the gas pipes. They are planning to do this from Buckleigh down to Rosemount and it also involves new connections to your home if required. They will take pictures (before and after) where they dig up to ensure it is put back properly.

Road Testing

Engineer Spade Oaks will commence work in Bakers Wood on Thursday 24th January 2019 which will comprise bore holes in the road to assess the road depth. This will enable us to assess the requirements to build up the road to provide a longer lasting surface and to get a more accurate estimate of the cost of repair. Please do not leave any cars or wheelie bins parked on the road. Temporary barriers will be placed around the excavations.

GAS PIPELINE WORKS

National Grid through their contractor Cadent Gas Ltd and their subcontractor, Triio, are undertaking gas pipe works commencing today. Initially, there will be a survey of mains supply pipes and connections to properties. It may be that some connection upgrades are required, which will be done from small pits and sleeves within existing pipes so disturbance should be minimal. These works are important to ensure modern supply.

ROAD WORKS

The Committee is in the process of commissioning a road survey to assess the condition of the estate road, following many patch repairs and residents requests. It is likely it will need to be replaced. As part of this process, 16 small boreholes will be drilled (and made good thereafter) to fully assess the condition, quality, extent of damage and depth of foundation. The committee will then get three quotations for work required to ensure Best Value. More to follow...

UPDATE: 204 OBJECTIONS RECEIVED

Application Number: 17/00875/FUL

South Bucks District Council have received 204 objections to the proposed application on Plot 8 in the field to the North of Bakers Wood. These have come from Higher Denham, Brokengate Lane and, of course, Bakers Wood.

Local residents do need to be aware that the applicant may put in an appeal if he is refused and, if so, all the original objectors have to re-object as the first objections are not counted if there is an appeal against a decision.

There have been some particularly valid objections cited by residents of Lower Lane viewable (link here and here).

BWRA's objection letter is viewable here.

Planning Application

Application Number: 17/00875/FUL

An application has been made on Plot 8 of the field to the North of Bakers Wood. The Field has Article 4 protection, but a dangerous precedent would be set if planning permission were gained as there are 129 separate plots. The application can be viewed online here: 17/00875/FUL

The Planning Officer is Tony Franklin tony.franklin@southbucks.gov.uk

The application is for 'Change of use of land to residential use for one Gypsy Traveller Family. The site to contain one static caravan, one touring caravan, parking for two vehicles with associated hard standing, fencing and water treatment plant'.

Any objection should be based on loss of amenity value, impact on the greenbelt (where development is not permitted), removal of existing hedgerows and environmental impact of development.
