North Witney and the Local Plan

 

The recently adopted Local Plan produced by WODC includes 1,400 homes in North Witney, despite over a 1,000 residents signing the NWAG petition, due to very real concerns about traffic and flooding.

 

The site causes:

 

- an increased flooding risk

- more than doubles traffic levels in West End, Hailey Road and Farmers Close

- potential air quality issues in West End

- destroys a landscape that WODC agrees should be protected

 

That's before WODC has even properly considered secondary schooling, health centres and how Witney will grind to a halt with the building of a huge mains sewer through the middle of the town.
