2011

The 2011 applications and reports are shown below as they may still be of concern today.  We watch the progress of all local applications, which sometimes remain live for long periods of time.


A planning application for change of use from Class A2 (Financial and Professional Services) to Class C (Residential) to create four studio and one 1 bedroom flat, involving a first floor rear extension, raising of ground floor roof to rear and alterations to existing elevations as part of the Post Office site was refused by local planners on 12 May. As this proposal could have been considered commercial exploitation of the site and set precedents elsewhere we are in favour of the decision.

We are disappointed to note that Caffe Nero have been granted planning permission retrospectively for their new outlet in Ruislip High Street.  They took over a former retail shop which was governed by a different class usage to Restaurants and Cafes and yet that rule has been relaxed in this case.  The planning committee may have been influenced by recent Appeal decisions where a change of use has been allowed on the basis that a 'take away' element retains a part former use.

A planning application submitted by London Square Develpments to erect 71 one, two and three bed flats with associated parking and landscaping to which your Association objected as highlighted in the 20 April edition of the Ruislip and Eastcote Gazette has been withdrawn. A revised application may be submitted-we will monitor.

With 84 flats already recently constructed on this important ‘feeder’ road, there is now a proposal to build a further 71 flats on the Lyon Court site-with only 61 car parking spaces.   We are likely to object strongly.

A proposal to provide a second all-weather playing surface at Kings College Playing Fields has met with widespread opposition from local residents;  so much so that an action group has been formed against it.   Whilst the application was withdrawn on 23rd February, it may well return in a revised form.   We have already sent a letter opposing the proposed development and would expect to do so again.
