Plans for five homes rejected

PLANS for five new homes in Peppard have been rejected following opposition from residents.

PLANS for five new homes in Peppard have been rejected following opposition from residents.

Mrs J Westrope and Mrs S Evans submitted an outline planning application to South Oxfordshire District Council to develop the garden of a property in Grange Avenue.

They also wanted to demolish the existing bungalow and build a new one with three bedrooms.

Peppard Parish Council and some residents raised objections, including that this would not be infill development and it would have a negative impact on the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In the refusal notice, the district council’s head of planning Adrian Duffield said: “The application site lies on the edge of the settlement of Rotherfield Peppard, it is not a site allocated for development in a development plan, including a neighbourhood plan, and it is not considered an infill site within the built-up limits of the settlement. 



“The development would extend the built-up limits of the settlement and would detract from the landscape setting of the village and the character and appearance of this part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.”
