NO MORE: Chorleywood Parish Council speaks out against plans for up to 675 new homes

Chorleywood Parish Council (CPC) has spoken out against plans for up to 675 new homes on land to the north of the village.

Savills recently submitted plans for a development of either 300 or 675 homes to the east of Green Street, after previous applications were rejected outright last year.

With more than 750 comments on both the applications, the majority of which are objections, CPC has now added its voice to the dissenting crowd.

A document outlining CPC’s opposition to the plans reads: “The application is inappropriate development in the green belt and the Chilterns National Landscape.

“It would also result in detrimental harm to the rural character and the historic setting of Chorleywood Common Conservation Area.”

A spokesperson for Savills said: “The applications will deliver significant public benefits. This includes the delivery of up to 50 per cent of affordable housing, land for a new primary school, new public open space, high-quality sporting and community facilities, and a wide range of economic benefits.

“If approved, the development will be required to mitigate its impact through planning obligations and will contribute to local infrastructure through the Community Infrastructure Levy charges.”
