Permission granted for six homes

PLANNING permission has been granted for six new houses in Tokers Green.

PLANNING permission has been granted for six new houses in Tokers Green.

South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee has approved plans by Country Homes, of Guildford, to demolish a property and develop 0.26 hectares of land off Tokers Green Lane.

The scheme will include one two-bedroom house, three with four bedrooms and two with three.

The existing entrance will be retained and a second access will be created.

Kidmore End Parish Council had opposed the application on the grounds of over-development, high density of buildings, traffic increase and loss of trees.

Adrian Duffield, head of planning at the district council, said: “The proposal is in accordance with the relevant development plan policies and national planning policy as, subject to conditions, the development would respect the character and appearance of the site and the surrounding area and would not cause any significant harm to the amenities of neighbouring occupiers. In addition the proposal would not be prejudicial to highway safety and convenience.”

In November 2014, Country Homes was given permission for two homes on the site.

The company also applied for permission for another two three-bedroom houses and one two-bedroom property but this was refused in August.
