A message from the Town Council Chair, Vicki Hewer, following the Planning Committee Meeting at Cotswold District Council today.

“Despite the best efforts of the Town Council, residents (35 letters of objection were received), CDC Councillor and GCC Councillor the application to build 40 houses on the Bassett Road site was approved by 11-1 with a couple of abstentions. At the moment it looks as though the entrance to the site will remain in Bassett Road and affordable houses remain at 50% though this may be able to be renegotiated at full planning application. Please remember that the prospective purchaser of the land could well make alterations to the existing layout of the site.”
