Thank you to the planning committee

Tonight, ironically at Kineton High School, local councillors have unanimously rejected (overturning the recommendation by their officers) an outline planning application for 80 houses at Tysoe. Tysoeites (is that the right word?) were there in force and gave rapturous applause after each councillor spoke up and spoke out: “This is not sustainable”; “It will destroy the landscape setting of the village”; “Too many houses all in one go”; “The infrastructure isn’t there to support it”; “It just looks like opportunism”; “It won’t be good for wildlife”…. Why didn’t they make such a stand against the Kineton development, where many of the same arguments applied? When are the next local elections??!!
