2015

The 2015 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.


BOYNE RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME, PARK WAY, RUISLIP---------Significant extension of this dwelling is proposed in recent plans submitted, which have met with considerable opposition from local residents, given over-dominance on surrounding residential properties and further loss of garden/amenity space also identified.  Ruislip Residents Association has written to local planners expressing their concerns.

THE WHITE BEAR PUBLIC HOUSE------After extensive refurbishment/modernisation the White Bear opens its doors this month as an upmarket brasserie (with prices to match no doubt).  There is, by invitation, an 'open' evening of free sampling of the menu (not including drinks of course).  It will be interesting to see how it competes with the long established Orchard Beefeater opposite.  Bon Appetit!

 5-7  KINGS END-------

The two derelict houses on this site have been sold by the owner Waitrose to a property developer who subsequently submitted a new planning application to the local authority to redevelop the site. This application was refused  on 19 January this year. The developer has until 19 June 2015 to appeal the decision which they may still do. Ultimately any development will be an improvement on the present state of affairs.

Sainsbury's are to redevelop the former post office site at 48 High Street Ruislip and their planning application has been validated by the local authority. Given that the premises is in the local conservation area we would wish any modification to be in harmony with the local character of Ruislip  and we will keep a watching brief. The application is likely to come up for formal approval in the next few weeks.

2 Midcroft:  This very contentious planning application, which involves the demolition of the existing petrol station and the construction of a four storey building comprising 14 residential units and one ground floor office unit, was refused by local planners on 19 November 2014. The major concerns raised were to do with the development being in the Ruislip Conservation  Area and that because of its height and bulk it would mar the skyline and would not harmonise with the street scene, being quite out of character.   An appeal is anticipated.

44 Reservoir Road:  A planning application, submitted for the construction of a two storey side extension, having been refused by local planners went to appeal on 19 December 2014. We had written expressing concerns over supposed prior works and supported the Council's decision. As this appeal is proceeding under the Householder Appeals Service there will be no opportunity for further comment. It will be determined on the basis of written representations.
