Killingdown Farm – Appeal Decision

The Parish Council is, naturally, disappointed that, despite expert advice from our professional consultants and those from the district council, the Inspector, while acknowledging the harm caused by the planning application, has allowed the developers' appeal.

The Parish Council is, naturally, disappointed that, despite expert advice from our professional consultants and those from the district council, the Inspector, while acknowledging the harm caused by the planning application, has allowed the developers’ appeal. However we do acknowledge that in recognition of the depth of local feeling, the permission is now subject to conditions that will reduce some of the effects on the area. These conditions include: the ancient hedgerow on Little Green Lane will be retained at 5 metres; the footpath on Little Green Lane will be widened to ensure pedestrian safety; various measures will be taken to ensure biodiversity enhancements; electric car chargers, heat pumps and a high level of insulation will be incorporated in the construction and that the privacy of residents in existing properties will be protected from oversight. It is a sad fact, though, that despite our efforts this development will encroach on The Green and reduce the rural character of that part of Croxley Green.

Cllr Nigel Cole, Chairman of Croxley Green Parish Council
