55. Proposals from Durand Hotham regarding planning in Chadlington
Mr Hotham had contacted the Parish Council with his concerns about WODC approving new build planning applications which were not homogeneous with existing Chadlington properties. He felt the Parish Plan recently made available to all residents did cover his concerns. WODC planners should be made aware of these concerns. Developers, however, are inclined to take liberties in not complying with the original plans when it comes to building new properties.

Mr Gerry Eaton, a resident of Chadlington, had made contact through the website suggesting that a bench could be put at the bus stop on the Chipping Norton Road as there is nowhere for people to sit while waiting for the bus.
