Planning Update

The appeal by Spitfire Properties Ltd., to build four dwellings on Fithers Field, Kineton Road has been DISMISSED.

The Inspector makes many references to the linear pattern of development in the village stating " I conclude that the proposed development would introduce a backland form of development, encroaching into an open landscape, at odds with the predominantly linear settlement pattern "  She also goes into detail regarding access and safety on the site " furthermore, the proposal would fail to provide a satisfactory means of access." In the final paragraphs she concludes " However, when assessed against the Framework taken as a whole, the harm to the settlement pattern and its landscape character would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the limited benefits. "

As I write this there is still no news on Leys Field.

There will be soon, we believe, a planning application submitted for a proposed development of two houses on Church Orchard, the small field to the east of the Church, which has a footpath running diagonally across it and is much used by many dog owners and walkers in the village. This field is in the heart of the conservation area and is surrounded by listed buildings. It is important for many reasons that this field is preserved as it is and I will keep everyone posted as and to when any further information is received.
