Plans by Inland Homes for 101 properties on land at Hazlemere have been rejected on appeal.

The developer’s application to develop the northern section of a 12.87-acre site at Tralee Farm had been thrown out by the council on the grounds that it would not create a cohesive scheme across the site and caused a lack of separation between Hazlemere and Holmer Green.

The planning inspector ruled the council had acted reasonably.

A separate application for 290 homes on the southern part of the plot has been submitted by a different developer.

Peter Strachan, Buckinghamshire Council’s cabinet member for planning and regeneration, said: “The council is committed to using this land to create much needed housing for the local area but will only accept applications that are in accordance with our planning policy. It is key that all developers are mindful of this.

“I hope that this decision will help to reiterate the importance of ensuring that schemes submitted by landowners must meet the requirements of our policy.

“I look forward to the developers aligning their proposals to bring forward a comprehensive plan across the whole of this site so we can move onwards with the development.”
