Controversial plans to overhaul an area in the centre of Marlow are to go before Wycombe District Council’s Planning Committee.
The proposals, recommended to be approved at the meeting on Wednesday, June 29, would see renovations completed to the outside of Anglers Court, in Spittal Street, with new seating installed and trees planted.
However, the scheme has prompted complaints citing potential harm to the character of the area and concern about the impact of replacing the trees at the site.
But, in a report to be presented to the committee, officers said it was felt the plans ‘would preserve the traditional character, appearance, form and fabric of the building within its Conservation Area setting’.
It is also claimed that the new design will allow trees to grow to their ‘full potential’, which is not currently the case.
The meeting will take place 6.30pm at the district council offices in High Wycombe.
