FINAL CALL to action: planning application to build over 160 acres of Banbury farmland

The window for objections is about to close. Please ACT NOW! https://www.banburyguardian.co.uk/news/people/developers-shock-hamlet-with-premature-planning-application-to-build-over-160-acres-of-banbury-farmland-3721654 An application has been lodged with Cherwell District Council for outline planning permission to build industrial estates over 140 acres of ancient pasture on both sides of the A422 off Junction 11 of the M40 motorway. The development would link the new ‘Frontier Park’ warehousing with the M40 in the south, burying farmland once thought to be untouchable. The applicants say the industrial units would total 140,000 square metres and be used for storage and 24-hour distribution. To comment on the application see here https://planningregister.cherwell.gov.uk/Planning/Display/22%2F01488%2FOUT Comments must be made by June 30. A campaign group called Keep Nethercote Rural has set up a petition against the plan and also has a Facebook page

Parish Council objects to Cherwell DC Planning Application 22/01488/OUT

Reproduced below is a letter sent by Wardington Parish Council Chair, Malcolm Patterson, to Banbury MP Victoria Prentis. You are strongly encouraged to submit your objection, if indeed you do object, before the deadline of 30th June 2022.   Dear Victoria It was only last week that we heard about the planning application above. The opportunity to object closes in less than 3 weeks. It involves a further 100+ acre warehousing development off the A361 close to Junction 11 of the M40. We in Wardington and other local villages in North Oxfordshire and South Northants are very alarmed. It would be more accurate to say ‘horrified’. The Banbury Guardian has launched a strong campaign against. Wardington Parish Council is still

Planning Application 21/02467/F for further development at Junction 11

There is a flurry of activity and concern about the submission of a further planning application by Euro Garages for the area between Wardington and the M40 - https://planningregister.cherwell.gov.uk/Planning/Display/21/02467/F Having got permission for the monstrous warehouse, they are having a second go for a motorway services station, four story office building, two fast food outlets and a 240 bed hotel. Their first application was opposed and withdrawn some 3 years ago. The reasons were: Unnecessary: Services already exist less than 15 miles to the north and south Access: Increasingly congested motorway junction and unsuitable access via the A361 Pollution: The air between the motorway junction and Banbury is already one of the most polluted areas in Oxfordshire Type of Employment:

Objection to Application No. 19/00128/HYBRID

Wardington Parish Council has already objected to the above application. In summary our objections to the proposed development are: It does not conform with the stated aims for ‘Banbury 15’ in the CDC Local Plan It will increase traffic volumes and congestion well beyond that envisaged in the CDC Local Plan for the site. This will put more pressure on M40 Junction 11, the A361 in both directions, roads in and out of Banbury and villages to the north in Oxfordshire and South Northants. As a result Wardington Parish Council continues to object strongly to the Application. Should it be approved, we want mitigating measures for Wardington, Williamscot and Coton imposed on the developer and the relevant authorities as conditions

Gates down Church Walk

At the most recent Wardington Parish Council Meeting, Jan Funnell raised the problem of the gates down church walk (the pathway down the hill opposite the church.) On occasions the small, old, kissing gate has been taken off its hinges and has had to be replaced on its hinges. More importantly, further down church walk, on the left, a gate gives access to the field, but this gate does not give access to the field for walkers as it is not part of the public footpath. On occasions cattle have escaped because the gate has been left open. The chain and padlock installed to ensure the gate remains shut have been removed, again allowing the cattle to escape. There is
