Garden centre site house building proposals fail

A bid to build 14 homes at Yarnton Nurseries garden centre, which is on Green Belt land in Oxfordshire, has been thrown out.

Cherwell District Council’s planning committee voted against the plans put forward by Yarnton Nurseries.

Proposals for 43 homes in 2012 and 12 in December 2013 were submitted by the company but later withdrawn.

Some 11 residents and the Oxford Green Belt Network, Oxford Preservation Trust and the Campaign to Protect Rural England Oxfordshire objected.

The proposals also included an extension to the centre.
