Garages in a poor state of repair and too small to take modern cars will be demolished.

Annington Property Ltd intends to demolish a number of  garages on a garage court next to 21 Kenley Avenue in Carterton.

It is in an area of MOD housing around Stanmore Crescent. 

Planning documents state: "These existing garages are in a relatively poor state of repair and of a size which prevent most modern cars being able to successfully be stored within them."

A separate planning application is to be submitted providing a new car parking court  with dropped kerbs for some of the properties.

There will be no loss of car parking for the estate as a whole, said Annington.

A bat survey accompanies the application to identify that there is no current bat activity in any of the garages.

A permitted development application to West Oxfordshire District Council seeks prior notification consent for the work.

This is a procedure where an applicant must notify the planning authority of proposals before exercising permitted development.
