Appeal challenged over N’hood plan

A local authority is to challenge Planning Minister Greg Clark’s decision to approve housing in a village against local and neighbourhood plans.

Cherwell District Council is seeking judicial review over the decision for 54 houses in Hook Norton, after Clark approved Gladman’s appeal in December.  The Council had previously refused the proposal and is saying the Inspector failed to understand or apply the ‘Hook Norton Neighbourhood Plan’ properly – which says no more than 20 homes should be approved at any one location.

A similar application of 95 homes in Kirtlington was refused.
