The Parish Council has received notice of a new planning application related to the proposed development of thirty-six houses on the corner of Didcot Road and Fieldside.
Residents will remember that one of the arguments against the development put forward at last year’s public enquiry was that the proposed access to the site was not viable.
Kler has now accepted that this is the case and their solution is this new planning application which proposes moving the entrance to the site 1.4 metres forward. This means that the Didcot Road will have to be re-aligned to accommodate the new location. The result will be the loss of verge and the footway and road being much nearer to the properties on the opposite side of the road. This will have a direct impact on those properties.
The details of the new application can be viewed here:
The implications of this will at discussed at the village meeting on Thursday 21st June and the residents on the Didcot Road affected by these proposals will want to attend. (If you are a tenant please notify the landlord as they may want to know the impact on their property.)
The deadline for comments to SODC Planning Department on this planning application has not yet been published but is likely to be by mid July.
