Seriously - comments were made about the 'pitches' application at the time. What a stupid place to build football pitches in the first instance, away from residential properties, not thinking of highway safety - kids crossing that busy road - should they of been made available for kids to use them.


And its the same people that closed Cannon Court Farm Stables down, as a 'Non Viable' business (Like Woodlands Farm), then talk of another stable yard to be opened?

How long before this yard gets closed down, and the stables converted into housing?

When are these Cllrs going to go to 'Spec Savers' and open their eyes to what Cookham Residents can already see?? You don't have to be psychic to see what's happening to Cookham!

I see today that the application at 'Lower Mount Farm' has been refused, which is quite rightly so!

How can a land owner and Cllrs close two pre established equestrian facilities, to then have the cheek / or consider another equestrian facility to be created? Its like closing the stable door, after the horse has bolted!

I agree with the Cookham Society's comments, that should the application been approved the pre existing Chicken Sheds should be converted to house horses, rather than allowing any new buildings to be erected - minimising further development in the green belt.

As to the applicants list of support, it was mainly those that had lost the 'housing and grazing' from the previous RBWM Planners and Cllrs votes to shut down the previous sites. I find it funny that the same arguments to 'save' the previous sites, are now being used in support for a new site - its like the 'oki-coki' left foot in.. right foot out... in, out, in out and shake it all about ; )

As a last thought, in regards to the loss of these previous livery yards, the 'new' borough local plan urgently needs a policy to prevent future loss of any remaining equestrian facilities!

There's plenty of people and companies offering doggy day care facilities.  Just hang around any of the local NT car parks for long enough and you'll be able to find them if you can't be bothered to google search.  Yes, it may be a viable business, but there's hardly an excruciating need for any more!  Whereas equestrian pursuits are being squeezed to the point of almost extinction in the Cookhams.  OK, some of you may moan about the odd bit of poop on the roads or having to slow  down a bit in your car from time to time; but where will you take your kids to see the 'nice ponies' once all the land has been built on? Come to think of it where will you go to have a lovely view of fields, hedgerows, woodlands, and wildlife once Cookham and its farmland and waterways have been urbanised and sanitised beyond all recognition?  

Truly there are some double standards at work here - come on Cllrs get it sorted, Cookham will be ruined by petty middle management go with the on trend flow urbanites and the predatory property developers who want to take all the money they can from them while the Crossrail potato is still hot.

Lets be honest - Cookham is being totally eroded at every opportunity.

These Cllrs need to support the remaining Farms and Livery yards left standing, as like it or not, horse riding is part of village life. Cllrs need to apply common sense to those people that are obviously eroding the green belt with an ultimate goal for future 'land banking' for housing!

Cookham is supposed to be a village, but there are some that are intent on urbanising it and linking it to Maidenhead. Look at Cookham Dean, its become a RAT Run, and those lovely farm houses being urbanised to look like a fixture from the 'Only way is Essex' programme.

Has anyone seen the planning application for this Doggy Day Care being built at Lower Mount Farm?... more out buildings.... if they build them big enough, could be converted into 'Single Story Dwellings' in the near future... after all... enough had core gone down for 'footings' of a substantial building.... !
