Controversial plans to build nine new homes on a disused car park in Flackwell Heath were voted down by the council – but the decision will be taken by a government agency.

Bucks Council agreed it is “minded to refuse” an application submitted by Revere Developments to redevelop the old car park, on Old Kiln Road – but having received a ‘non-determination appeal’, the matter is now in the hands of the Planning Inspectorate.

Plans detail the ‘redevelopment of the existing car park to include the construction of four semi-detached houses and five flats in a three-storey block’.
