Residents will be disappointed to hear that Kler Group has decided to appeal the decision against its planning application to realign the Didcot Road to facilitate the entrance to their housing development on the corner of Didcot Road and Fieldside.
Last November, the South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) planning committee rejected the plan with seven votes to reject and three abstentions. The plan was deemed to be dangerous to road users and not acceptable as it would turn a rural road into an urban highway out of keeping with a village environment and in contravention of the village’s Neighbourhood Development Plan.
This appeal will be determined on the basis of written representations. Residents who objected to the plan will have received formal notice of the appeal and are urge to make their case again, but those who did not object originally can also comment.
You can make your case online at https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/ using appeal reference APP/Q3115/W/19/3220743, or you can write (quoting the appeal reference) to
The Planning Inspectorate
Temple Quay House

Submissions must be made by 10th April 2019. The formal notice of the appeal sent to the Parish Council is here.
