The inspector's examination of evidence for the Site B housing project has been taking place this month.

John Rodda, Vice-Chairman of the Parish Council has sent this message to all villagers:


Remember! Remember! The ninth of November!

Wallingford, housing, the lot,

There’s every reason,

Why Site E should be developed and Site B should not.

The second tranche of the Examination in Public opens on 1 November, with Wallingford being considered on November 9. In preparation for this hearing the Inspector has framed a number of questions as a basis for the discussion and he has asked representatives of the different stakeholders to take part. The proceedings are expected to follow the same pattern as in July; there will be a lengthy debate of Core Strategy proposals, especially on the day for Wallingford. Each of those invited to the session will have their say with the Inspector asking questions and taking notes.

The Parish Council submission to the EIP has been prepared by David Fox and Adrian Wood following a framework provided by planners in West Waddy. Additional material on transport and traffic has been included which has come from two consultants. One is a recently retired Reader in Transport in the Department of Planning at Brookes University and the other is Director of Development Planning in MVA Consultancy, Woking. Information collected on 22 September, during the traffic survey organised by Derek Brooker where a number of villagers took part, was also taken into account. David and Adrian will represent Brightwell cum Sotwell at the EIP where parishioners would be welcome to come to observe the proceedings.


Parishioners will have become aware that there are County Council plans for the extraction of gravel from the area between Cholsey and the bypass. Much of this material is likely to be transported along the A4130 to Didcot and beyond, causing further problems for drivers entering and leaving the village. Cholsey Parish Council has set up a committee to fight these plans and we are supporting this initiative.
