Farm appeals after rejection of 110 homes

THE owner of a farm has revived her bid to develop land for housing.

Claire Engbers is appealing against South Oxfordshire District Council’s decision to refuse permission for 110 homes at Thames Farm, near Shiplake.

The council said the scheme would be inappropriate encroachment into the countryside and raised concerns about road safety, loss of trees, the impact on wildlife, drainage and the additional strain on local services.

Shiplake and Harpsden parish councils and Oxfordshire County Council all objected.

In her appeal to the Planning Inspectorate, Mrs Engbers says the reasons for refusal are either invalid or no longer apply.
