Lighting approved

SECURITY lights installed at an alpaca and llama treatment centre in Goring Heath can stay in place.

South Oxfordshire District Council planning officers inspected the lights at Camelid Veterinary Services following a complaint from a neighbour who said they were too bright and caused disturbance at night.

They concluded there was no breach of planning law and enforcement action was not necessary.

Last year the parish council complained that the centre's iron gates and red brick wall didn't have planning permission and were not in keeping with their rural surroundings.

But following an enforcement visit, the district council said there was no point ordering owner Claire Whitehead to submit a retrospective application as the development was acceptable and would be approved anyway.
