RESIDENTS living near fields outside Oxford where thousands of homes could be built have slammed council bosses for not consulting them.

They said proposals to develop land between the city and Kidlington could wreck views from Cutteslowe Park and cause traffic chaos.

It is part of changes Cherwell District Council is considering for its Local Plan, with a consultation closing on January 9.

The local authority’s boundary stops short of homes in North Oxford, so it has not directly contacted people there – even though they live next to the area affected.
