Who owns Cookham Moor ?

Well said Watchman!

I wonder at times if these people (planners and Cllrs) lack 'common sense' !

Cookham is a village - not a sprawled out part of Maidenhead or even Bournend (I see Bournend postings on this board now). Its really sad to see how fast things can change, not for the better either.

I also noticed that the Doggy Day Care by the Tack Shop is well established now, with concrete thrown down, lots of cars parked up... and horrible urban fencing and random building placed on site. But no planning?

Wonder how long it will be before housing goes on... and then that's another field ear-marked for a few rows of houses... and our planners and Cllrs are too short sighted to see... and by that point it will be too late because the precedent is already set !

no normal 'House Holder' could / would dare to do such a thing.... so how do these land owners get away with it ?

Talk about miss direction .....

Wonder how long the gate half way up the foot path stays in place, before the lane gets widened for more Vehicle Access  Roll Eyes

It was noted a while ago. The National Trust are implementing the charge, apparently to support the Moor and surroundings.

Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but there is an application to put a Pay and Display machine on the car park on Cookham Moor.
If it were the spring I would be checking the date to see if were an April Fool. I can't think of anything much more out of place in our lovely rural setting. The moor seems to slowly getting increasingly urbanised, they'll want to put concrete tacks down to the river next to save people having to put their wellies on.

I'm not sure if I lived in the village I would appreciate this, as parking in and around the High Street is pretty bad already, and I would have though this would just push traffic that way. I mentioned it to someone and they thought it was because commuters were parking there and then walking to the train station now you have to pay in the station car park.

Thoughts anyone.

Like last and for several years now we love to get away to our island paradise of Rarotonga. While I am away and the days I am not filming, I will be listing more history of the Cookham of yore!
So a Merry Christmas to one and all. So turn up your sound for some local island flavour:

I'm taking off this weekend for our annual Christmas holiday on Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. This card is made up from material that took last year. I hope to be back with more camera material early next year. So a Merry Christmas to all my followers.
So turn up your sound for local colour:

I honestly do not believe that the Planners have got "taste" when it comes to approving dwelling constructions.
Certainly not in and around the Cookhams.
Which highlights the oft used expression... "It's not what you know but who you know" - when dealing with the RBWM planning dept.

Watchman - I never said access was from the bottom, youíve interpreted that. Whilst I didnít, albeit wrongly, state my comments were about access from the top that is what meant.

Point taken ...
However all this talk about "traffic/cars" using Kennel lane to access the stables could so easily be interpreted
as traffic using BOTH ends of the lane.
Hence my surprise and subsequent confusion!

I wouldn't have said accessing the stables was 'traffic', not in the sense that it is normally used to define motor vehicles on roads anyway. The 'traffic' would have people who were using the stables, not using the track as a normal road.
