Following the site visit to the former 'Beehive Stores' (23a Churchway) on 18th July by AVDC's Planning officer for Haddenham and the Historic Buildings officer, it was agreed that the builder needed to deal with certain problems which had arisen and needed rectification.
Those matters have to be discussed with the builder.
Until AVDC are satisfied that those points have been dealt with satisfactorily, no further work can be carried out at the property.
However, as regards the frontage and the proposed wall, this is still the subject of a planning application which has yet to be determined. In the meantime the builder has had to stop work in that area completely, and, because the area borders the public pavement, he has to ensure that the area is made safe.
