The developers of Site B will be holding an exhibition of their plans for the layout of Site B in Wallingford Town Hall this Friday 19th July 3-7pm and again on Saturday 20th July 10am-3pm.

In a letter to all parishioners, John Rodda writes:

'This is your opportunity to view and comment upon the plans BEFORE they are submitted to SODC. Make your voice heard regarding the layout of the site and its impact on Brightwell-cum-Sotwell. Unfortunately the development is going to happen but we have to make the voice of Brightwell heard. Below are the matters we are concerned about:

1. The rural setting of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell being affected:
screening, particularly protection and extension of the existing flora on both sides of the A4130
nature, extent and height of the buffer zone east of the A4130, and its long-term protection and ownership
visual coalescence
light pollution, whether from the development or from new highway lighting
height of properties within the site
protection of existing trees on the site
timing of landscaping and other protective measures

2. Traffic related matters
noise pollution from traffic
junction design and location
speed restrictions
cycle paths between Wallingford and Brightwell-cum-Sotwell

3. Name of the development

4. Does the plan conform to the Core Strategy Policy that: 'the western and southern boundaries are reinforced with significant landscape buffers, with no built development along the western boundary adjacent the bypass.'

We do urge you to attend the exhibition and make your views known in relation to the plans.'
