There is a lovely yellow planning application notice on the gate of the chicken farm in Strande Lane. He is applying for permission to temporarily leave the remaining bits of poultry shed etc on site for the period of a year. How can this be when the enforcement said it all had to be removed. Once again someone is taking the proverbial out of the planning laws, what's the betting that if grants the next thing will be the RE-erection of the building because it has been allowed to stay whilst in pieces? Why is this painful, stressful, frustrating situation being allowed to continue?

I agree with you Paris it is an absolute mess down there , rubbish all over the place. He is hanging in there hoping no one will notice and then after a  year he will start something else - perhaps more chickens. Devious or what. he need to get his rubbish out of that field and RBWM should make sure he does, This saga seems to go on and on. Hope the Parish Council will get involved with this. There seems no end to the problems with Berkeley Homes looming in, 20 houses threatened for the land adjoining the mobile home site, things are getting very upsetting

The fact he has even been able to make another application is beyond me when he was told the whole site had to be cleared !
It's about time RBWM stepped up and stopped this ludicrous saga once and for all.

The Planning Inspectorate has ruled that the RBWM enforcement on the shipping container be upheld. They allow 7 days for its removal.

The Planning Inspectorate had also ruled to uphold enforcement on the polytunnel.  This structure has now beeen dismantled and is still present on the field. The PI ruling did require all materials to be removed within fourteen days, but that decision was in February. The land owner now has submitted a Planning application for twelve months storage of these materials.

Like him or loathe him, you have to admire the audacity and pluck (pardon the expression) of said chicken farmer.
It matters not which way the RBWM/Planning Inspectors rule, the farmer always seems to have it covered.

So just how long has it been since this farce began ... some 2 years ago now?

And still, other than the chickens being spirited away, the materials hang around the field awaiting a definitive directive to have them removed.

Thus far ... no directive has been upheld ... everything has been countered by the farmer .... and so, the saga continues ad nauseam.
This guy really does know how to frustrate, leaving the RBWM senile and impotent!

What a gross embarrassment to the RBWM councillors ... especially the Cookham Trio, who clearly prefer hiding in the bushes
rather than attending these premises regularly to enforce their views on the matter.

Perhaps they have none!

He has had an enforcement notice, this should be implemented a.s.a.p. by RBWM they seem to have no stomach to get rid of this nuisance. The field looks an absolute tip why after two year are we still suffering this man and his rubbish.

I agree Monty. The field just looks worse by the day. This man is making rbwm look a right bunch of ineffectual idiots, especially our Cookham trio as some one called them.

I cannot believe this is happening, it should all be cleared by now. He is up to something and it is not good.

Its the Cllrs that have egg on their face... all too quick to concentrate their 'voting' powers elsewhere, than actually resolving an issue that impacts the community they serve!

They were not that useful at the start of the proceedings, and prove to be even less useful towards the end.

I wonder how they would feel IF this scenario was next to where they lived Huh ummmmmmm

It's about time a proper line was drawn under this ridiculous scenario and the enforcement orders upheld, with action taken if necessary to remove the buildings, container etc from the field.  Letting deadlines go by and allowing additional planning applications to get put through on items that shouldn't even be there is just causing more distress, more wastage of council tax payers money and opening the door for heavens knows what comes next in the bid to get his own way.

I agree Paris, while RBWM are dragging their heels in this mess he is sorting something else out. He will keep putting planning applications in for this and that and keep it going till it suits him to clear the site, that is if ever he does. RBWM want to get in there and clear it.

Errrr ... please note that ...

RBWM are putting in a brand new phone system for 273,000 (of tax payers money) specifically (so they say)
to assist you in getting to your chosen councillor / department with alacrity and efficiency ...

... so that the councillors/the chosen department can continue ignoring your concerns (only more swiftly and efficiently) ....

... and carry on doing sweet nothing about any pending and embarrassing issues (more swiftly and efficiently!)

The chicken farmer, meanwhile, continues doing his own thing - unchallenged!

So ... no changes then .... except the splashing out of our cash!
