We are totally flabbergasted, flummoxed and other words beginning with F by SODC’s decision and decision making process.
At time of writing, SODC’s website still shows that the EIA consultation period is open and indeed responses (all being objections) are still being posted by concerned residents.
The website says that consideration has yet to take place.
The website says that no decision has taken.
However, it transpires that the decision was taken back on 20th August. Continue reading
SODC tell us that they will be making a decision about Grainger’s EIA shortly. Meanwhile they remain open for comments. So if haven’t made your opinion known yet there’s still time (just).

Here’s what Grainger’s John Beresford had to say in today’s Didcot Herald: “The comments received in support and objection are being reviewed, and will form part of the Statement of Community Involvement to be included within a planning application submission.”
So they are still peddling the story that there is some support for this inner city housing scheme on the green gap! Incredible maybe, but incredibly dangerous certainly. Make sure you add your voice to the already fantastic response there’s been so far by making your comment about the application on SODC’s website. Click here to comment.
Don’t let the truth be drowned out.
There has been a fantastic response over the weekend with lots of you guys telling SODC what you think of Grainger’s plan to build an inner city style estate on the Green Gap.
We still need more so that the noise is truly deafening.

And thank you once again.
If Grainger does not want to hear your views about their inner city style housing scheme for 170 dwellings, then South Oxfordshire District Council certainly does.
As we revealed last week Grainger has asked SODC for a ‘Screening Opinion’. If they are successful it will be a green light for Grainger to submit a Planning Application. This will take them one big bulldozer closer to their ultimate objective. If SODC decide that a serious Environmental Impact Assessment is required we will get what we have been seeking – a proper analysis of the principles of the proposal before we get to the detail of any application. This will also serve to delay Grainger’s unseemly rush to cash in on this land. Continue reading
Savills, the agent representing Grainger Plc, wrote to SODC on 24th July 2015 with a request for a “screening opinion”.
We note that the date was a fully week prior to the closing date for public comment on their scheme. A clear indication of how much notice that they intend to take of public opinion.
