Alastair Nicholas Expansion to the West would have a dramatic effect in relation to potential flooding downstream at Kencot due to the covering of the land. Kencot floods regularly and building to the West can only significantly increase the flood problem in the village. Generally the amenity of Kencot, Alvescot and villages on the West side can only be dramatically reduced by such a large development on beautiful farm land. 27 Feb 2011 18:17

Andrew Foster If there needs to be further house building in Carterton, my opinion is that it should NOT be on the proposed Carterton West site. On balance I consider the Carterton East option to be better. 07 Mar 2011 14:47
Andy Macer Certainly not the west, this is too much of an encroachment into the Cotswold outstanding natural beauty area. 04 Mar 2011 17:30
Anthony Dee Neither. However the West site is currently unspoilt downland on the edge of the Shill Brook floodplain containing two Local Wildlife Sites and a Biodiversity Target Area. The proposed development would create a large satellite town physically separated from Carterton by the Shill Brook and decimating an area of virgin Cotswold countryside. The inevitable increase in traffic volumes will badly impact on the local environment. 01 Mar 2011 10:18
B Mills I would prefer no expansion but if I have to choose it would be to the East. The expansion should be towards a town - Witney. 05 Mar 2011 21:52
Bampton Environmental Watch Gr… We would prefer that neither of these sites were to be developed due to the down stream flooding risks. If either is included then flood mitigation measures must be a priority. 28 Feb 2011 14:59
Bampton Parish Council - Cllr… We have concern with both areas due to the resulting increase of down-stream flood risks to other towns and villages. 28 Feb 2011 14:13
Barry Lewis Neither. I can see no evidence of exsisting business units being put to use for many years since they were built. Any housing growth would only increase the commuter traffic into Oxford and Witney. 19 Feb 2011 14:58
Bill Barber See attached document. Preference is for East but consider that Northern expansion would be a good option. The West option would have the greatest environmental impact and effectively create a separate 'village' rather than enhance Carterton. 08 Mar 2011 22:12
