Buckinghamshire Council win appeal against ‘inappropriate development’ in Beaconsfield

Plans for the 450 residential property Beeches Park development next to the Amersham Road (A355) and Minerva Way in Beaconsfield were refused at the Council’s South Buckinghamshire Area Planning Committee on 25 November 2021; this decision has now been upheld at appeal by the Planning Inspectorate (decision announced on 20 December).

Councillor Peter Strachan, Cabinet Member for Planning and Regeneration said: “We are delighted that the Planning Inspector upheld our decision to refuse this application. From the start we argued that the plans for Beeches Park constituted inappropriate development and would have caused substantial harm to the Green Belt.

“We received more than 500 letters from local residents and organisations objecting to this housing development so this is a great result for both the Council and the residents of Beaconsfield.”
