The official decision notice was quite comprehensive in its refusal, stating (in summary)

  1. Loss of “active ongoing employment use” of the building
  2. Impact on the prominence and setting of adjacent Marlow Place.
  3. The design not improving the character of the area
  4. Impact on privacy of neighbours
  5. Inadequate parking provision

All of the above had been referred to in multiple objections lodged by Marlow residents.
