A DECISION over an application residents fear would lead to a road becoming a ‘de facto traveller site’ will be made tonight.

A family wants permission to use a static mobile home, touring caravan and amenity block in Kiln Lane, Garsington as their home.

But locals have said before South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) granted permission for other travellers to live there, Kiln Lane was a ‘quiet bridle way' and now ‘there are now barely any locals who use [it].’

SODC's planning committee will vote on the proposal, which is recommended for approval, at The Cornerstone, Didcot, from 6pm. The application was previously deferred to allow a site visit.
