    Planning Application 15/01048/F
    Residential Development of a single dwelling to the west of Horn Hill Road and North of Adderbury Cemetery together with land for an extension to Adderbury Cemetery.
    Comments by A.C.A.G. on the above:

    •It will destroy naturally occurring flora and fauna on this piece of land that was previously used for agriculture but which has lain untended by the owner for many years.
    •It will disrupt the aesthetically pleasing aspect for the Grade 2 listed Friends Meeting House.
    •The work to be carried out would be detrimental to wildlife in the area and as above will cause harm to the setting of the Friends Meeting House.
    • Damage may well be caused to the boundary walls, one of which is ‘listed,’ to the access road by continuous traffic that will, during construction, of necessity be heavy in nature.
    • Access to the site will become a danger spot for existing traffic in Horn Hill Road that is already considerable and which will increase with the completion of the sites to the south and north of Milton road.
    • The only available footpath in Horn Hill Road will be crossed by the access road to the site. This is regularly used by both children and parents on the way to and from the local primary school.
    •Heavy vehicles my well cause damage to the existing sewerage pipes close by in Horn Hill Road.
    •The proposal is to erect new dwelling in an area of open countryside. Such projects should we believe be restricted to those that are essential for agriculture or to meet the needs of affordable housing. This proposal meets neither of these criteria.
    •This site is outside the settlement boundary proposed in the Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan.
    •Whilst A.C.A.G. recognises the need for more land to accommodate burials in the future we are aware of the drainage problems already being experienced in the current cemetery where freshly dug graves are having to have water pumped out prior to burial taking place – we have to wonder what happens after the grave has be filled in. To make this problem worse by venturing further onto land having an abundance of springs seems the height of folly.
    •We are concerned that the granting of this application will encourage others in the area to develop their land in a similar fashion. This, in our opinion, would be to the detriment of the area.
