Jeremy Clarkson has been been served with a planning contravention notice following complaints that the Diddly Squat Farm Shop is selling goods and produce not allowed under the original planning conditions.

A West Oxfordshire District Council planning enforcement progress report for December 2021 confirms the notice has been issued in order to obtain information about goods that are being sold from the farm shop which are limited by planning condition.

And it adds that "officers are in discussions with the agent acting for the landowner in respect of various alleged breaches".

Officers have urged local councillors to stop the presenter-turned-farmer from turning a lambing shed into a new 60-seat café or restaurant with a 70-space car park at his farm in Chadlington when they meet at a planning meeting on Monday.

Some 53 letters of objection have been received, including representations from solicitors Leigh Day.

Among them was one from Maggie Jackman, of Chadlington, who wrote: "Further to my earlier objection comment I would like to add a complete lack of trust that the applicants will adhere to any planning conditions given.

"With regard to the farm shop none of the conditions given on 11th December 2020 have been adhered to and the shop is now heavily promoting through their social media platforms and selling Diddly Squat souvenirs unlikely to have been manufactured within a 16 mile radius of the shop.

"I refer to the WODC Notice of Decision, neither are souvenirs referred to in clause 7 of the document. Therefore I have no faith that any further permitted development would comply with any regulations."

A planning report for the restaurant application states that enforcement investigations are also on-going for non-compliance with a condition which said materials used for the roof of the shop needed to be approved by officials before work began.

Council planners wanted a more traditional - and expensive - slate roof fitted that was more in keeping with its Cotswolds surroundings.

But a building contractor apparently unaware of the condition used a green steel sheet roof instead without getting it agreed.

Mr Clarkson lost an appeal to keep the cheaper roof.

The planning report also says the lambing shed was built in 2020 "on the basis that it was required following the purchase of a new sheep flock to diversify the farming business and the flock has now been merged with another local producer.

"The building has been used, without planning permission, as a café with outdoor seating area used in association with the farm shop and more recently a bar area has been installed in the building. A catering kiosk is located behind the farm shop and portable toilets have been installed to the side of the building and the adjoining field is being used for parking purposes."

Objection comments claim that the lambing shed "has never been intended to support the wider farming operations of Diddly Squat Farm. Its purpose was as a filming location, and now a restaurant."

Chadlington Parish Council say it has received comments that "a café would never have been granted planning permission if it had it been applied for at the outset".
