Enclosed area illegally opened up by developer

Reported via desktop anonymously at 20:44, Sunday 1 January 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later

The previous enclosed green area at the wootton road roundabout near the new Aldi store and the new estate has had part of the fence taken away by the builders so the new residents can cut through to Dunmore road. They have not bothered putting a gate on it and left it wide open.

As this was one of the few enclosed green spaces to be able to exercise dogs it is unacceptable that the builders can just decide to make an open access for the new residents to use the field as a short cut. I am uncertain if this was on the original plans or it has been done illegally. Either way, the fence needs to be reinstated or at the very least gated.

  • Dear Ivan,

    The area that is fenced is not part of the public highway or in Oxfordshire County Councils control. The boundary treatment of the green area would be for the owner of the land to comment on; for this area the land owner could possibly be Abingdon Town Council or the Vale of White Horse District Council.

    Kind regards
    Oxfordshire County Council
