The PC has received more information from the site promoter, Gladman.
As Clerk to Harwell Parish Council I would be obliged if you could distribute to your Parish Councillors the attached consultation leaflet.
Gladman Developments Ltd are proposing a residential development on land north of Didcot Road, Harwell. I enclose our consultation leaflet outlining the proposals, which is being delivered to approximately 360 homes in Harwell, as part of our pre-application, public consultation process.
We recognise that new development can affect communities in a number of different ways and we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you, in a meeting closed to the general public, to explore how such a development can be formulated to respond positively to the needs of the community you represent. It is our view that the most constructive forum to discuss the proposals is a direct meeting with 3-4 representatives of the Parish Council who will convey the views of the residents. This allows us to fully understand the opinions and views of the Parish Council and local residents in an open and positive manner. Engaging with stakeholders early in the planning process helps us better understand the concerns and aspirations of the community and allows us to provide solutions as part of the proposals rather than as an afterthought.
We would also like to draw your attention to the website that has been set up where further information on the proposals can be found:
