PC Comments Planning Committee 28 Feb recommended that the PC objects. Final comments agreed by PC on 14 March as follows;

Harwell PC objects to this application.

The Council has concerns over access and highway safety and does not want to see lots of roads accessing small developments from the B9943 betweeen the UTC junction and the new Harwell Link Road. A site of this size should be accessed from GWP or Valley Park, and not the the main road, and east-west integration should be sought.

Access to the B4493 is close to the existing GWP exit and a bus stop. If it was considered dangerous to have a right turn into GWP when approaching from Harwell, then this access will be just as dangerous. If allowed, a suitable highway design (integrated with Valley Park plans) is needed to ensure safe movement along the B4493 for cyclists and pedestrians and horses.

28 March Response to amendment

Amendment does nothing to alleviate concerns about adding additional access roads to the B4193. Changing the visibility splays does not help. What guarantee is there that the trimmed hedges on land not under OCC or applicants control will remain trimmed?
