Planning update

At the Planning Committee meeting on 8th January Stratford District Councillors unanimously rejected an outline planning application by Gladman Developments for up to 80 dwellings on the Oxhill Road.

This followed weeks of hard work and carefully planned presentations of objection by Tysoe Parish Council led by Chairman Mark Sewell, by the Tysoe Residents Group led by Keith Risk with expert advice from Mike Sanderson and John Hunter, and by our ward member, D C Gill Roache.

Gladman may well appeal but it is round one to Tysoe.
