Apology received for “shambolic” planning application

A MAN has apologised for making a “shambolic” planning application.

A MAN has apologised for making a “shambolic” planning application.

Andrew Gadsby wants to extend his home in Western Road, Henley, which he bought in October. He has submitted new plans after Henley Town Council objected to his original application on the grounds that it would have a detrimental effect on the street scene and neighbours.

Mr Gadsby told a meeting of the council’s planning committee: “We submitted some previous plans, which were shambolic. We are working with another architect.”

He said the house was in dire need of redevelopment as the previous owner had not done anything to it for 40 years and the back garden was overgrown. He said a neighbour had objected yet they had built a similar extension eight years ago.

The commmittee recommended that the application is approved by South Oxfordshire District Council.
