‘No more housing’

MOST Goring residents oppose another increase in the village’s housing target.

MOST Goring residents oppose another increase in the village’s housing target.

South Oxfordshire District Council is consulting on a new Local Plan which will set new homes quotas for towns and larger villages such as Goring.

At present, Goring has been allocated 86 units but that number could increase after a government-backed report said thousands of extra homes were required across the district.

The district council held a consultation meeting at Goring village hall last week, where volunteers from the Goring neighbourhood plan steering group conducted a ballot and found only five out of 226 respondents favoured raising the target.

Group spokesman David Bermingham said: “The council representatives were under no illusion as to the strength of local feeling.”
