How long does it take and how many prompts do The Cookham Society need before they pull their finger out
and do something constructive about a situation?.
They always seem to be behind the four ball, always the very last to do something about a situation, never the leaders.

If this sounds harsh, it is meant to be.
So many times I have noticed their reluctance to take the initiative, invariably stepping in at the eleventh hour
when everyone has had their say - before they pick up the vibes and then finally act upon it.

C'mon Cookham Society - let's see you openly and visibly get involved in the negative melees that involve us residents
and let's see you initiate discussion and debate about the things that do affect our Society.

Thanks.

Couldn't agree with you more!..

The Cookham Society should of been on this issue from the start. Its not good enough to show 'good gesture' at the end, when its been stressed on this thread that the livery's and offices are not in a position to object!

This is when the Cookham Society could really win more members, if they are the voice for these types of issues.

So I've heard the Parish Council was positive . . BUT we need to ensure that the objections can not be over come.

I still think these farmers know how to beat the system

IF the Cookham Parish Council allow this to get permission, then more fool them!

Let it be said  . .What they allowed to happen to Bridleway 19, was the start of the 'Cookham's" being changed.

Forewarned is to be forearmed !

If these Cllrs allow this to happen, then we need to vote in new Cllrs!

If people don't stand against this kind of action eventually all the character will be removed from the Cookhams and it will sadly just become a collection of dwellings with no soul.

Hence, we need to challenge all these major applications that change the character of the Cookhams forever!

The comments sent to the Borough regarding the application can be viewed on the RBWM site:

http://www.rbwm.gov.uk/pam/planning_application_search.jsp?appnum=15%2F03388%2FOUT

They include those of the Parish Council and the Cookham Society (Community comment No. 7).

I stated earlier that all objections needed to be in by Tue 24th Nov before the parish council meeting but I have found out that objections can be lodged up to the date of the RBWM planning meeting on Dec 21st.  So, as the horse riders, stable users and business owners are all to frightened to object directly for fear of being either stopped from using the stables or being thrown out of their business units or rents being increased hugely, we all need to object on their behalf.

Here are the instructions on how to get onto the planning portal to look at the application and to object.
 
1) Go to http://www.rbwm.gov.uk/pam/search.jsp
2) Search for the reference 15/03388/OUT
3) Click on "Comment on this application", under the related links

Not sure what to write?  Something that includes these points…building on Greenbelt land, proposal is in violation of VDS with significant Stanley Spencer paintings painted from the ridge of the hill, big loss to all horse owners as it's the largest stables in the area, huge population of protected bats, barn owls, house martins nests, loss of business and income and jobs to Cookham if the 10 x businesses need to close or relocate.

Thank you Merriman.

We already have one Farmer determined to change the face of Cookham forever, lets not let both farmers be able to 'join' housing plots, losing the character, desirability and the tranquillity of the village forever.

A BIG Thankyou in advance to anyone that sends in an objection! Grin

Woodlands Farm planning application to destroy 10 local small businesses, stables and wildlife breeding colony to build 3 houses
 
Please get your objections in now to stop this.
 
It’s not too late to object as the planning panel meeting got moved and will probably be on January 20th now.

Woodlands Farm is a vital part of our community. The units provide income for many of us and the livery yard is the best for miles around. Very few have indoor schools I am told.
It looks like it will go to the planning meeting on the 20 Jan so still time to make your feelings felt to the council planning dept and pass the message on. I would like to hope that Woodlands Farm and the Strand Lane applications will be dealt with as separate issues. It is not a question of either or.
Loosing the farm buildings at Woodlands farm will alter the use of all the adjoining land. This land is highly visible from all of Cookham and beyond.

I see the Architects have put in a reply on the planning portal to all the nasty mean people complaining about the "Executive" housing proposal.

http://www.rbwm.gov.uk/pam/planning_application_search.jsp?appnum=15%2F03388%2FOUT

For all the noise about it just being an "outline" application they are certainly putting in an inordinate amount of effort, there is after all much money to be made here.....All issues and concerns batted aside as per usual and the normal criticism of peoples genuine concern for a dramatic change to their environment. I suspect the outcome will follow a well established path...

As with so many of these things, they just seem to be going through the motions....let the plebs have a moan then get on with doing whatever it was you wanted to.

If the applicant/architects are so concerned about providing much needed accommodation, it begs the question why on earth are they only applying for 3 houses, each on a 2/3rd acre plot ?
