Petitioning Leader South Oxfordshire District Council John Cotton

Residents call on the Leader of SODC to get the Thames Farm appeal decision reversed.

Every tier of local democracy was opposed to the creation of an urban island of 95 houses adjacent to rural Shiplake at Thames Farm: parish, town, district & county councillors fought the scheme and were supported by Henley MP John Howell.

An unelected civil servant from Bristol spent a few days listening to expensive lawyers, paid for by a local landowner, and democracy was crushed as the Henley Harpsden Neighbourhood Plan was tossed aside.

We call on you to get the appeal decision referred to the High Court and thence reveresed.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Leader South Oxfordshire District Council
    John Cotton
