Campaigners have been celebrating the announcement that South Oxfordshire District Council has decide to refuse permission for the construction of 245 houses on land between Peppard and Kiln Roads next to Emmer Green.

The Chairman of CAGE said ‘this is a tremendous victory for all those who have written with their objections and for the dedicated campaigners from local parish councils and residents’ groups who have been working away at opposing the scheme since it was first lodged in the autumn. The countryside we care about will continue to be threatened and CAGE will remain vigilant. An appeal on the grounds for refusal is now possible, but at least campaigners have some much deserved breathing space.’
