Chalfont St Peter’s offices could become apartments

An office building could be transformed into new apartments according to new plans.

Mr. Nigel Freeth, of September Properties, Woodstock, submitted to Bucks Council a “change of use” request for 2-4 High Street, Chalfont St Peter.

A prior notification request describes the “conversion of offices into 14 residential units (apartments)”.

There will be 25 parking spaces.

A similar request for 19 apartments was filed in 2018. This request for less housing is “to improve the overall attractiveness of the proposal to future buyers,” says a document.

An umpteenth request in 2019, requesting the demolition of all buildings and the construction of a building with 26 apartments, was finally withdrawn in March of this year.

“We… respectfully request that the board grant pre-approval for the change in use, or determine that pre-approval is not required,” read a planning statement.

The planning officers will now decide the fate of the application.
