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.

Should it be approved, we want mitigating measures for Wardington, Williamscot and Coton imposed on the developer and the relevant authorities as conditions

I have attached the briefing, which is intended to explain our approach to road maintenance, with some facts and figures to show progress as well as the scale of the challenge. Hopefully the briefing answers some of the question you and your residents may have, as we know this is a live issue in many areas. Please feel free to circulate it within your area.
