Last chance to comment *** 19th February ***

The planning application (14/1234/P/OP) from Pye Homes/Blenheim Estate to build 169 dwellings on land South of Witney Road, Long Hanborough has been revised.

West Oxfordshire District Council are inviting comments on the revised proposal to be received by NEXT THURSDAY (19th February).

It looks likely that this application, together with the Corpus Christi/Savills application (14/1102/P/OP) in Church Road, will be discussed at the next Uplands Planning Committee on Monday 2nd March.

THIS COULD BE YOUR LAST OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOUR VIEWS KNOW – DON’T MISS OUT!

Full details of the revised proposal can be found at www.westoxon.gov.uk/planning but in summary, the changes include:

  • Moving the Doctors Surgery to Witney Road on the edge of the south field.
  • Using the allotments below Reilly Close as replacement playing field with covered walkway to enlarged school. Note they mention funding to support this will come from further development.
  • More land for bigger station car park (and of course a more congested A4095)

The West Waddy amended plan document states a lot of assumptions as fact – these need to be challenged, or we risk irrevocable damage being done to our village.
