Council should listen to us over homes

Sir – District councillor Duncan Enright, in his criticism of the proposed closure of Witney Post Office (Gazette, December 18), asks: “Where is the evidence that they have listened at all?”

I hope he will bear in mind his statement when he comes to vote after the new strategic housing market assessment for Oxfordshire is finalised.

The residents of Brize Norton are vehemently against 700-plus houses being “plonked” (Prime Minister and Witney MP David Cameron’s own phrase) in their parish.

Will he, along with the other district councillors, be listening to us?

Councillor Enright IS listening. He has contacted me several times to ask for further clarification on the issues. Placing a further 700 houses in Brize Norton and Shilton is a Conservative backed plan, I'd focus my attention in their direction. Labour may be the shining light that can save our parish from over-development.
