The 43 conditions attached to planning permission for a £150million motoring museum have been revealed.

Plans to create a museum, members club and holiday homes at The Driving Centre at Enstone Airfield on the Great Tew Estate have been at the centre of a years-long row with neighbours.

The project was originally spearheaded by Peter W Mullin, an American classic car collector.

His first application faced over 180 objections and was withdrawn in 2018.

New designs for the museum - plus 28 holiday lodges - were then drawn up by world-famous architect Norman Foster.

Again this was strongly opposed by locals with concerns over increased traffic and noise.

Robert Davy from Swerford wrote: "This development will completely change a rural area bringing noise pollution from a track used 312 days a year, light pollution, overcrowded roads, blocked roads on the 10 days of events - even more holiday homes and not homes for residents."

However, it was given outline planning permission in 2020.

In March 2023 a new application included a second exhibition building and increased the number of luxury holiday homes and farmsteads from 28 to 56 but made them smaller.

This was approved by West Oxfordshire District Council despite more than 300 objections.

The decision notice, which has just been published, imposes 43 conditions on the developers which includes limiting the number of vehicles visiting the museum to a maximum of 200.

All visitors must have pre-booked and will be let in three times a day in sessions of at least two hours.

The museum will be allowed to open for six days a week.

It must provide information about public transport and routes in its holiday homes, including maps and timetables, as well as walking and cycling routes within the local area.

Another condition is that any refuse vehicle collecting rubbish from the site can be no more then 11.4 metres in length.

No more than five two-day events can take place in the museum’s concourse a year and none of those can use amplified music or fireworks.

And an exercise track for displaying and running classic cars must only be used between 9am and 6pm on days when the museum is open to the public.

Mr Mullin, who runs a similar car museum in California, spent 30 years working on the project.

He told planners: “My great-grandchildren will probably never drive a motor car - at least not as we know it. Instead they will travel in secure autonomous pods by a computer.

“They will only ever experience the wonder and awe of the automobile by coming to a destination like the Mullin.”

However, the project has reportedly since been sold to fellow American classic car collector Ronald Burkle, owner of the Soho House Group which runs nearby Soho Farmhouse.
