PLANNING APPLICATION 20/00864  STATION COURT

Back in May we posted about the proposed Station Court development which, being massively out of scale and having inadequate parking, we strongly rejected. An amended plan has been submitted. As far as we can see the main change is a reduction in flats from 14 to 12 and only 12 parking spaces are provided. 

The applicants have also submitted a heritage statement and this is under consideration by RBWM.

BATTLEMEAD - WHAT NEXT?

RBWM is now proposing a further round of consultation on the latest proposals for this land. The revised master plan suggests a compromise between nature conservation and public access, but says little about the site’s important role in carrying Cookham’s flood water away and we shall continue to press this issue strongly.

ACCESS ACROSS WEIR BLOCKED

You may have noticed that access over Odney Weir has been closed to the public for several months, blocking footpath access to Sashes Island with the picturesque lock and dramatic views of the steeply wooded hillside below Cliveden.

According to the Environment Agency Waterways this is due to “the lockdown and ongoing global pandemic, and issues this summer including two drownings”. While these issues are in no doubt regrettable The Cookham Society believes that there is no longer any valid reason to keep the weir closed and will be urging the Parish to join us in pushing for it to be re-opened in the very near future.
