The deadline for responses to the latest set of amendments to Kler’s planning application for up to 36 houses at the corner of Fieldside and the Didcot Road is Thursday 19th January. You may make as many comments as you wish, so even if you have commented before, please do so again as this will add weight when it goes before the planning committee.
A reminder of the key concerns:
- Conflict with our Neighbourhood Plan. In planning terms, the village is defined as unsustainable. If Kler’s plan is approved it will mean a greater increase in housing stock than is required by SODC’s draft local plan but without providing any community facilities that would help address the sustainability issues.
- Damaging impact on the conservation area.
- Impact on ecology. The plan has houses close to an environmentally important site.
- Traffic volume and safety.
The application and amendments can be viewed on the SODC website (link below) where you can also comment using the online form. Or you may prefer to contact the case officer Amanda Rendell at email@example.com
