Objections over new homes in Fairford Leys

Planning officers are backing ten new homes in Fairford Leys despite objections from 20 residents and a local councillor.

The Ernest Cook Trust, which built the original development, wants to construct ten three-bedroom homes on land off Chelsea Road.

But critics claim the plans are an over-development of the site, will lead to loss of privacy of neighbouring homes, exacerbate flooding and put pressure on community resources such as the already oversubscribed school.

Fairford Leys district councillor Steven Lambert is objecting to the scheme and has forced it to be debated by politicians at the development control committee on Thursday.

But Aylesbury Vale District Council planning officers have recommended the scheme be approved.

They say the land forms part of the original Fairford Leys masterplan for development and ‘would have an acceptable impact on the character and appearance of the area, on residential amenities, drainage and flooding and on biodiversity and trees’.
