A NEW distribution warehouse, trade showroom, offices and light industrial units have been proposed to be built on farmland.

A major planning application to build a distribution warehouse on land south of Hithercroft Road is under consideration.

The plans show the distribution warehouse could be built on the land opposite Wallingford Sports Park.

However, town clerk Paula Lopez has made an objection to the planning application online.

She said: “WTC is concerned that the current application would be an overdevelopment of the site which would build large industrial buildings right up to the sites boundary with Calvin Thomas way.

“This will drastically and detrimentally effect the visual amenity of the area to those passing and entering the town and would also be visible from the from the North Wessex AONB.”

The councils target decision date for this application is August, 10.
