Boathouse application – approved!

On 10th November, Buckinghamshire Council approved the planning application (reference 22/05132/FUL) for a boat house in the Greenbelt in the Little Marlow Lakes Country Park, set against the A404. The facility is intended to be used by Great Marlow School and Sir William Borlase School.

The planning officer report explicitly mentions the RUR4 policy in the 2019 Local Plan as a deciding factor, as it allocates the entirety of the area for outdoor recreation and leisure use. Not a smaller area, as the Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet are trying to argue.
