A reminder that the SODC Planning Committee will meet on Wednesday 27th September 2017 at 6pm at Didcot Civic Hall, Britwell Road, Didcot, OX11 7HN to discuss the Kler planning application for 36 houses on the field at the corner of the Didcot Road and Fieldside.
Speaking for the village will be Steve Brown, Peter Rose and our District Councillor, Sue Lawson.
One of the key issues in our objections is that we do not believe that safe access can be provided to and from the Kler site. Steve Brown, who has spent his professional career in local government highways departments will focus on this issue.
Peter Rose will speak as Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee. If the Kler plan is approved, it will effectively render our Neighbourhood Plan redundant. SODC say that they are committed to NDPs. We want them to prove it.
Sue Lawson, who has followed this saga and supported us through thick and thin, will also speak against the application.
Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting to demonstrate the strength of feeling in the village. During the proceedings you will be asked to raise your hand to show you are from Long Wittenham and attending as an objector.
If you intend to go along, please send a brief email to that effect to firstname.lastname@example.org
