The owners of the Rose and Crown have submitted a new application to convert the Rose and Crown pub into five one bed flats and a studio apartment. Local Councilor Peter Hudson had this to say about the application.
The new application raises many of the same concerns with me that the previous one did, namely the over development of the site and the small unit sizes of the accommodation, the likely knock-on effect of traffic issues around Springfield Road and of course the potential loss of a community facility without any reference from the current owners to local community organisations.
Community members are encouraged to view the details of the planning application and respond with comments or concerns. The deadline for comments is Thursday the 21st August 2014. The application number is CH/2014/1223/FA and you can view it by searching at https://isa.chiltern.gov.uk/online-applications/ . All comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to copy Peter Hudson on email@example.com into any comments so that he can build an overall response.
