Andy Macer Yes, i am concerned about the housing strategy around carterton 04 Mar 2011 17:30
Anthony Cox I think we have have enough new building in this area or the past few years.

There is no infrastructure to support any more housing, and judging by the hundreds of unsold homes in the area and un let retail and commercial properties, there is very little demand.

We don't want any more of our country side built over, enough is enough.

The council should be concentrating on the empty MOD property and all the disused commercial site instead of allowing yet more poor quality housing to be put up.

You may not have noticed but half the town looks like a war zone. Upavon way is a complete embarressment. How about concentrating on that instead for a change?

B Beckett I would like to register my disapproval for the proposed Carterton West Development. Carterton’s western boundary is currently nicely defined by Upavon Way and the Shill brook valley, providing residents access to open countryside within a short walk from the Town centre. To build in the area proposed would be to ruin one of the few attractive aspects of the Town by exacerbating the unsightliness already created by the airfield and associated MOD housing. If necessary, better to build in the Eastern area where ugliness is already abundant in the views of the RAF Brize Norton Airfield structures and nearby industrial estates as well as the cramped and claustrophobic living conditions of the Shilton Park estate. Furthermore, there should be no consideration of any further development in Carterton until the derelict areas of the Town Centre are developed and the empty industrial areas put to use. 07 Mar 2011 09:33
Bampton Environmental Watch Gr… Large developments are not appropriate for Bampton. Only small windfall sites and small rural exception sites should be allowed. 28 Feb 2011 14:59
Bampton Parish Council - Cllr… For Bampton, no large scale developments are appropriate, should rely on small windfall sites and small rural exception sites. 28 Feb 2011 14:13
Barry Lewis Are the additional houses in Carterton necessary? The western option puts the developement directly in the path of the noise from aircraft taking off. There is no direct pedestrian route to the centre of the town. When will Carterton have a full time Fire Station and fully manned Police Station. The strategy is clearly aimed at the advancement of Witney at the expense of the rest of West Oxfotdhire. 19 Feb 2011 14:58
Bill Barber We accept the need for additional housing providing that there are adequate local employment opportunities. 08 Mar 2011 22:12
bobdalembe06 I have lived in Middle Barton OX7 7HB for all my life .To my limited knowledge there has been no social housing built in Middle Barton For many years .I beleive that Middle Barton Should qualify for social housing as a priority .There are many young couples who have left the area solely because of Housing costs .This seems unfair and just not right . 31 Jan 2011 09:09
Boundary local issues / problems should be addressed as priority before adding more chaos to the area 06 Mar 2011 12:02
