We continue to object to this application for inadequate staff parking and the effect that collection and drop off would have on the already congested B4009.

Proposal: Demolition of existing kennels, related structures and both existing dwellings. Redevelopment of site to provide 5 dwellings, with access.

Address: Former Forest Glade now Chinnor Hill Kennels, 3 Chinnor Hill

Recommendation: No Objection

1) In light of new information received (as attached) it would appear that the previous objection to retail and employment matters can now be removed.

2) The site is not in the Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan but it maybe included as a site if deemed to be brownfield. If the indicated density of the site were to be reduced to match the remainder of Chinnor Hill this could be considered as infill. Brownfield and Infill are permitted in CNHP.

3) We support the concerns outlined in the Chinnor Conservation Board submission.

4) The current design raises concerns over the safety of the access.
