PLANS to replace a bungalow with a house in Henley have failed to win the support of town councillors.
Oraclemarker wants to demolish White Lodge in Normanstead and replace it with a two-storey detached house and garage.
Neighbours in The Close have written to South Oxfordshire District Council complaining that they would lose privacy.
Robert Edwards, of Upper Culham Farm, spoke to Henley Town Council’s planning committee on behalf of the developer.
He said: “I think our architects have addressed any technical and privacy issues and have consulted the relevant neighbours for overlooking issues.”
Vice-chairman Simon Smith said he sided with the neighbours and felt the property was not in keeping with the area.
Councillor Sam Evans said: “I think it is too big, it is overdevelopment.”
The committee recommended the application is refused.
