A4155 closure

You will by now be aware that the main Henley - Reading road will have be closed for up to nine weeks from August 29th to allow for essential repairs where it is subsiding near the Flowing Spring pub. 

A diversion for traffic under 7.5t in weight has been put in place via Dunsden and Binfield Heath and details circulated to both parish councils. Details can be found on the right of this page. Updates will be published on this site.


Gladman goes to committee

The application by Gladman to build 245 houses in Eye & Dunsden parish is now to be considered by councillors at a planning meeting on September 6th. SODC had previously indicated it would be turned down on grounds of the lack of available local education facilities. Buses will run from Emmer Green to Didcot and back for £5 per person if you would like to attend.

Gladman application goes to committee

The application by Gladman to build 245 houses in Eye & Dunsden parish is now to be considered by councillors at a planning meeting on September 6th. SODC had previously indicated it would be turned down on grounds of the lack of available local education facilities. 

The application is still rigorously opposed by Eye & Dunsden Parish Council, backed by six other local parishes in South Oxon, including Binfield Heath. It is also being fought by residents' associations in Emmer Green and, crucially, by Reading Borough Council, which says it cannot supply the services and support the estate would need to make it sustainable and which SODC would not be able to provide either. 

Opponents of the scheme, which would treble the population of the small parish, are hoping for support from the hundreds of local objectors who have responded on-line to the application.
