Organised chaos: a change of planning

We had hoped that the changes in planning policy announced earlier this year would have had time by now to bed in, and that we would be able to assess their impacts, both good and bad.

Spare a thought for Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor which has been overwhelmed with planning applications to build more than 300 new homes. Villagers say they simply don't have the infrastructure to cope with such a huge increase in population.

We have written to the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles, to ask him to rethink a decision to build a retirement village and care home near Wallingford which was approved by South Oxfordshire District Council’s (SODC) Planning Committee last week.

Hot on the heels of the application to erect a wind turbine at Henton we are now faced with an even bigger single turbine proposed at Ford, just over the Oxfordshire border in Buckinghamshire. And we don't want that one either!

Henton, near Chinnor in South Oxfordshire could be the site of a 90 foot high wind turbine if developers have their way. They have submitted a planning application to erect the structure at Rowan Farm, Henton.
