Residents denied chance to object

HENLEY Town Council has complained after residents were prevented from voicing their concerns over a planning application.

Permission was granted by South Oxfordshire District Council for a ground-floor extension at a house in Leicester Close despite written objections.

Neighbours had complained that the extension was too big and that a proposed 10ft garden wall was “un-neighbourly”.

The town council recommended refusal and town and district councillor Liz Hodgkin asked for the application to be called back, meaning it would go before the district council’s planning committee.

She was told to delay her request until amended plans had been submitted but after the town council also objected to these, she was told she had missed her chance to call the application back.
