Public Question Time – 1 member of the public was present. Speeding concerns were discussed on Thame Road – more police speed checks to be requested and more signage would be more beneficial. Cllr Williams advised that CPC now own a speed indicator device and this will be deployed as often as possible in various locations – Thame Road being one of them.


Planning applications considered:

Application Ref: P18/S1004/O Outline

Proposal: Development of 79a-83 (and land rear of) to provide up to 60 dwellings, with associated open space, landscaping, vehicle access and footpath links

Address: 79a Lower Icknield Way

Recommendation: Objection 130059

Not in the adopted Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan

It is increasing the excess number of dwellings expected for Chinnor over the numbers in the Draft SODC Local Plan.

It creates yet another entry/exit road on Lower Icknield Way – meaning there will be 7 exits over a distance of 300m. There is no indication that a suitable vehicle splay can be achieved.

There is no indication of a safe walking route into Chinnor this will merely add further pressure on the already poor pavement route into Chinnor. There is no pavement on the north side of Lower Icknield Way in the vicinity of this development. Also there is not a continuous pavement along this road on the same side – pedestrians are forced to cross and re-cross the already congested road which is dangerous.

This will leave 79 Lower Icknield Way in an isolated position between two developments.

This site is towards the perimeter of Chinnor but has no access to public transport.

This development would have a detrimental affect on the landscape.
