Slapton residents are standing together to protest against new homes which could be built in their village.

Residents from Horton Road and Rectory Close are opposing the construction of two detached houses on land adjacent to Rectory Close.

Homes on Horton Road back out onto the site where the development is planned.

The planning application has already been rejected by Aylesbury Vale District Council but Chasehart Limited has now appealed the decision.

While the appeal is being determined, residents have put up posters on the site outlining their objections to the plans.

Robert Kennedy, of Rectory Close, lives opposite the land where the development is planned for.

He said: “We do not want them to build the homes there, this is our village and we are against it.

“It is the countryside, it is beautiful, we do not want to see houses there.

“Children play out because it is safe, if that development goes ahead and more homes a built, it will no longer be a quiet village, the children will not be able to play out there.”

Chasehart told the LBO it could not comment while the appeal progress was ongoing.

This is the third planning application the company has made for the area of land.

In 2011 an application for three detached dwellings and detached double garage was refused.

A year later an application for one detached dwelling and detached double garage with associated new access, parking and landscaping was refused.

Both were appealed but Chasehart lost.
