CAGE (Campaign Against Gladman in Eye and Dunsden) is an alliance of local parishes and residents groups united in their opposition to the Gladman proposal for 245 houses in Eye & Dunsden.
The group now has its own website and Facebook page which provide the latest information. Despite incorrect information on the SODC website, comments are still urgently needed on the detrimental planning application.
Why not come along to our popular and friendly quiz evening and help our fundraising programme for the hall? You can bring a team of 4-6 or can join up with others on the night to form a team.
Tickets are just £12, including a fish & chip supper. Sausage & chips or vegetarian options are also available. To book contact Beth on 01189 470339 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You have until 20 January to post your comments on SODC’s website about the Gladman plan to almost triple the number of houses in our parish. Just click on this link to record your views. Every comment helps!
A group of local parish councils and residents’ associations is completely opposed to the scheme, which they see as ‘unsustainable’ according to Government guidelines. There has been strong opposition from people living in Emmer Green, who can see the development wrecking an attractive landscape as well as placing an intolerable burden on local services.
The Henley Standard reported local opposition to the scheme recently.
Reading Borough Council planning officers have recommended councillors vote against the scheme. A decision will be taken at the planning meeting on 11 January.
Thames Water has said they see the scheme posing a threat to local water supplies.
The final decision will be taken when SODC votes on the scheme on February 1st. We hope to see as many people as possible at the planning meeting on this date.
