The appearance of this development is extremely sensitive as the gateway to Adderbury immediately before the conservation area.
Disappointingly, as you can now see, these houses are being built in a rather bright red brick – possibly similar to those as you approach Bloxham? – when most villagers expected Hornton stone on the outward facing properties and brick out of view as you approach the village – such as has been successfully achieved in the Adderbury Fields and Aynho Road developments.
This new site would now appear to bear little relationship to the images presented at the original public consultation, which brings into question the effectiveness of the whole planning process with CDC
It seems that despite various discussions with CDC, the development is too far advanced to rescue the situation – but hopefully some satisfactory middle ground can still be achieved if the Parish Council and individual villagers can protest quickly and effectively enough.
