  1. I strongly object to any development on this land as it is a beautiful green space for us all to look at and enjoy.

    1. Please pass on your concerns to the Cotswold District Council.

  2. I agree that every small parcel of land shouldn’t be turned into residential. We need more infrastructure if anything. There has been one retail unit which has been closed for over a year now. We need a cafe/bistro as a social hub if anything. Is there a planning application number to register objections?

    1. I understand that this is a pre-application. Please pass on your comments to Cotswold District Council

  3. I strongly object the development of 24 dwellings. It will stretch the school that’s already almost to its full capacity, there are not enough amenities in the village and the immediate areas to cater to this amount of people. The natural, green spaces should be available to residents and children to play in. We are becoming a village/estate of concrete paths and brick/stone houses.

    1. Please pass on your concerns to the Cotswold District Council.

  4. Remind us again where the radium was found?!

    1. Unknown – please raise your concern with Cotswold District Council

  5. Please could you provide a link to the CDC on how we object and we can send our objections – apologies I am a bit naive to these sorts of things.
    With many thanks

    1. Hi Claire – as this is a pre-application I do not believe there is an online system. However, I believe you can send a letter referencing the letter above, together with your full name and address, to: Development Management, Cotswold District Council,Trinity Road, Cirencester, Gloucestershire GL7 1PX

      1. Thank you I am doing this today.

        1. Hi If anyone would like a copy of the letter I have sent as a draft, please feel free to dm me off the Facebook post by the Parish Council
