Objection to new homes in Ashbury

We have written to Vale of White Horse District Council (VWHDC) to register our objection at plans to build 17 new homes on land to west of the Idstone Road, Ashbury (application number P12/V2060/FUL).

CPRE often supports small developments in villages when the proposals are appropriately sited, as they can help to boost rural communities. But this proposal is not one of them.

This application proposes to build on greenfield agricultural land. We think that this is undesirable in every way in this historic landscape, just outside the Ashbury Conservation Area. The development would be outside the village built envelope, on a steep site and very visible from the west, and access would be difficult.

VWHDC's own conservation officer noted, in recommending refusal, that the development would 'extend the built up limits of the village on to an exposed site extending into the countryside', whilst ' not relating to the existing form of the village'.

No thanks.
