Concerned Filkinite Carterton has an extremely limited centre with few shops or other facilities and little new employment prospects. The projected housing, if accepted, is likely to greatly increase commuter traffic eastwards to Witney and Oxford and westwards to Swindon. The last large housing development, Shilton Park, has produced a similar outcome with the majority of residents commuting for work and shopping to the far superior range of shops and facilities in Witney. 11 Mar 2011 21:11
Jools I am opposed to any growth I am opposed to growth in Carterton as I believe the transport issue in the region cannot support it. Also the general infrastruture in terms of shopping and leisure facilities and opportunities for employment cannot cope with an increase of the size being proposed. 11 Mar 2011 20:41
Susan We need more variety of shops and one big store,but you turned Sainsburys down. You gave planning permission for yet another takeaway, which we don't need, I think that makes 13. We don't need any more small food stores, we already have two. I do my shopping in Sainsbury's or online as most people do in Carterton. With the growth in Carterton taking place, we will need a big store. 11 Mar 2011 19:52
Gillie Coghlan object strongly to the proposed expansion of housing around Carterton, which is already a dormitory town, with very little employment, woefully inadequate road links no rail network. 1. Shilton in a conservation area, an area of outstanding natural beauty would be destroyed by the addition of new homes; 11 Mar 2011 17:22

Smiths Gore Will or has the MOD been required to make realistic contributions to local infrastructure directly arising from their massive expansion of RAF Brize Norton - education, roads etc - will WODC demonstrate clearly exactly what has been built recently within the base and demonstrate the contributions made and how this compares to what market developers would be expected to contribute.? 11 Mar 2011 16:25

D Martin I prefer the North option because of all the options it has the possibility of being directly connected to central Carterton, whereas the existing East development is only connected to the A40, the road bridge connecting it to even the swiming pool and health centre was removed. Any West development cannot be directly connected to cental Carterton resulting in yet another isolated community. The west creates flooding problems for nearby villages. No zoned industrial areas. 11 Mar 2011 16:05
Dennis Walker As a victim of the 2007 flooding I am very strongly against any large scale residential development on the outskirts of Carterton. Having looked at the 4 options on your Core Strategy website, only option 1, the development of several small sites within Carterton, appears not to run the risk of increasing the liklihoold of further flooding in the outlying villages. 11 Mar 2011 14:36
