New Road Housing Development - Decision on 29th March!

This application for 4 houses beyond the village boundary will be taken at  the SODC Planning Committee meeting on March 29th. (6 pm. Didcot Civic Hall). The parish council has serious concerns about the site  being beyond the edge of the village boundary and relates poorly to Shiplake. Furthermore, there are technical issues (including trees, ecology and drainage) as well as concerns about access arrangements.

Residents support in objecting to such developments is always important and appreciated. Tudor Taylor, SPC Chairman, and residents will speak against SODC Planning's recommendation to approve it. If you wish to attend contact Ray Wild via randcwild@gmail.com and he will provide more information and coordinate transport arrangements as may be needed.

You can read more about the application by clicking on this link  www.southoxon.gov.uk/services-and-advice/planning-and-building/find-application and enter the planning no. P16/S3438/O

The February 2017 Planning Report is available by clicking on the February 2017 Planning Report.  More details of an application can be accessed via the SODC website link provided in the planning section of this website.

Additional Sessions / Questionnaire

Want to play Table Tennis at Shiplake Hall? Please give us your views on what day and times best suit, if so.

It is clear from some enquiries that running a session on a different day / time would allow others to join in the fun.  To this end, I have compiled the following questionnaire - it will only take a few minutes to complete (honest!) - and will greatly assist me in evaluating whether or not the current day / time is the most suitable but also whether there is any appetite to run an additional session.

 Please click here to access the questionnaire - the link will expire on 31st March.
