SODC to Appeal Thames Farm Decision

Responding to the 600 people who signed the petition objecting to the outcome of the recent Inquiry, John Cotton, SODC's Council Leader  has updated everyone as follows:

'I promised to keep you informed of the council's position regarding the planning appeal decision on the Thames Farm site. On the basis of legal errors in that decision, we have begun court proceedings to quash it. Limited information on the nature of those errors will be available early next week, once we have served papers on the appellants and the treasury solicitor. After that, we will not be commenting further whilst the matter takes its legal course.

Many thanks for all your support!'

The parish council thanks all those (600), who signed Ricard Verrall's petition supporting the council's view that the site is unsustainable in many respects, along with the many other emails of support from residents sent directly to SODC.

We will keep you updated as matters progress ..... as will the NP Steering Group as it formulates its proposals for building required housing in a sustainable manner.

Shiplake Parish Council PWG
