Plans to convert a closed pub into retired apartments at 30 Startops End, Marsworth, Buckinghamshire (21/01520/AOP).

It has been proposed to demolish the existing outbuildings to make way for four houses each with three bedrooms and two parking spaces.

The planning statement reads despite ‘considerable financial investment and improvements’ being made to the property over the past few years, Covid-19 and a new competition have caused the pub to close.

The existing caravan site could see an extension as a candidate wishes to enlarge the site, compromising a mobile caravan and a traveling caravan.

The current site has four locations. If approved, this will bring the total number of slots to nine.

The planning statement reads: “The purpose of the proposal is to seek to remedy a continuing breach of planning control, but also to make provision for the existing occupants of the site and their future needs.”

The developer is trying again to build a new apartment after several refusals at 56-58 Sycamore Road, Amersham, Buckinghamshire (PL/22/2695/FA).

A new offer has been made for the development of a two-bedroom self-contained two-storey apartment with home office space, waste storage and two parking spaces.

The developer has been trying since 2012 to redevelop the site and has made five attempts.

The plan has since been scaled back in a bid to allay concerns and increased its parking spaces to seven to service the existing retail unit, existing apartment and proposed apartments.

It has also been redesigned to make the building more in harmony with the neighborhood.
