Jeremy Clarkson’s hopes of extending his Diddly Squat Farm Store in Oxfordshire were dealt a blow after he was once refused making plans permission for a bigger automotive park.
The previous Best Equipment presenter had sought after to increase parking for the store, which has attracted numerous guests and is with regards to the village of Chadlington, from ten to seventy areas.
Native councillors refused, pronouncing that the plans would have a “visually intrusive and destructive affect” at the Cotswolds geographical region.
It’s the second one time this 12 months that Clarkson, 62, has had a making plans software rejected. The presenter, whose new profession in agriculture was once made well-known by way of the hit Amazon sequence Clarkson’s Farm, had at the beginning was hoping to construct a 50-seat eating place.
It might have bought red meat from his personal herd of farm animals and different produce, however the eating place plans have been sunk in January, when making plans permission was once refused.
His proposal for a bigger automotive park at his farm store seems to have divided locals. The industry seems to were a hit, with Chadlington Parish Council estimating that about 400 cars have been parking on fields across the web page on a unmarried busy day. Some have referred to the auto park as “Diddly Squelch” as a result of the dust.
There have been round 30 objection feedback from villagers with some bringing up considerations over site visitors chaos round Chadlington. An equivalent quantity voiced their reinforce for the appliance, which was once refused on Friday by way of West Oxfordshire district council.
The parish council objected to the appliance, pronouncing it “would take away some, however no longer all, cars from the street given the customer numbers skilled, and would no longer cut back the present choice of car actions within the house which is a security worry”.
Some locals were pissed off by way of the farm store dismissing a making plans requirement to simply promote produce from inside of a 16-mile radius and the council had served Clarkson with a making plans contravention realize.
