  2. 18/1864/APP 19 Lenborough Road, MK18 1DH

The Case Officer has supplied the following:

“Following the receipt of an objection from the Town Council against the proposed development, the applicant has submitted revised plans (drg no. AB3099-03 Rev A) which illustrates that the proposal would not result in an increase in the number of bedrooms and would continue to remain as a 3 bedroom dwelling.

The original plans illustrated that bedroom 3 would be converted into a study, nevertheless understandably this could be reverted back to a bedroom in the near future resulting in a four bedroom dwelling. The current revised plans however illustrate that the study would be reduced in size to a maximum of 4.5 sq m. The Technical Housing Standards states the minimum GIA of a single bedroom must be a minimum of 7.5 sq m, and subsequently at 4.5 sq m would fall significantly below the minimum standard. It is therefore considered although the property would enlarge the size of the bedrooms, it would not create any further bedrooms to continue to remain as a 3 bedroom dwelling, thus no additional increase in demand for off and on street parking.”

Members responded (2nd July) OPPOSE & ATTEND – Members noted that there was no parking within the curtilage for one vehicle, let alone two, per guidelines. Parking space on the verge opposite was restricted, and any additional vehicles could obstruct passage for other residents and emergency vehicles (the collapsible bollards at the southern end of Lenborough Road were intended to allow access for fire engines to the eastern part of Mount Pleasant).

The following Minor Amendment has been received, for information only:

  1. 18/01842/APP 21 Woodlands Crescent, MK18 1PJ
    Installation of 2№ dormers to existing front roof slope
    Amended plan; parking plot added. Members responded (2nd July): OPPOSE & ATTEND -Members opposed on the grounds of overdevelopment of the plot, inadequate parking within the curtilage for a 5-bedroom dwelling, and overlooking of the neighbour’s garden.


  1. 18/02459/ATP Waglands Garden (new site)
    T1 Yew – deadwood (consent not required).
    T20 Yew (original shown as Portuguese Laurel) – fell. The tree is largely dead and unsightly. Replace with 1 standard sized ash leaved maple (Acer).
    Limetrees (T14, T16 & T19) Crownlift to a heigh of 4m. Remove ivy from stems.
    Limetrees (T23, T25, T36 & T40) Crown lift to a height of 4m and to prune this outer apron and the crown on the south side (over the footpath and adjacent gardens) to a height of 5m. Reason for the above – to tidy the tree, reduce nuisance to neighbours and footpath under and to allow light under the canopies.
    [Clerk’s note probably T35 not T25; T25 was a yew and no longer appears on the plan]
    T41 – Beech – prune back branches growing towards the building to provide a 3m clearance from the roof, gutters and walls, pruning back to suitable growth points.
    Gaddesden (W E Black)
