To All Local Residents – An important message from Rosy Burke of Chacombe regarding the possible new service station at M40 Junction 11:

Hi all,


Not sure if you are aware that the Eurogarages Service Station has reared its impossible head again?

Cherwell District Council – Eurogarages Planning Application – Comments for Planning Application 17/01044/F

Please do go onto the CDC planning website if you have any comments to make – we must keep up the level of interest – Eurogarages have cynically put in with just a short time to comment before Christmas.

Rosy Burke (contact details below)

Development of land to the north east of Junction 11 of the M40 Banbury, to provide a 23,225sqm industrial building (Class B8); two office buildings of 3716sqm each (Class B1); 80 bed Hotel; Motorway Services Area with amenity building, Petrol Filling Station (with canopy, fuel pump islands, ancillary convenience store and food to go outlet) and HGV Parking; creation of a new vehicular access off the A361 together with associated alterations to the highway; parking and circulation; landscaping, drainage and associated works. – Part OS Parcels 4200 And 1300 Land Between New Banbury Daventry Road And M40 Street From Banbury To Williamscot Banbury

Ref. No: 17/01044/F

The service station is not within the planning guidelines for this prestigious site. The traffic coming off the M40 to get petrol will completely stuff up Junction 11 so that Banbury will become known for traffic jams and it will harm the town’s commerce and prosperity for the long term. Add to this the traffic for the building of HS2 and the area will grind to a halt.

I object most strongly for all the reasons in my previous letter – the area around Junction 11, M40 will become gridlocked if the service station is allowed to go ahead.
