Jeremy Clarkson ‘warned by police’ over his Diddly Squat Farm Shop expansion plans

Jeremy Clarkson has sparked concern from the police of his expansion plans for his Diddly Squat Farm.

Clarkson, 61, plans to build a restaurant with 60 seats on the Chadlington site. He also recently submitted planning documents for expanding his existing shop.

Jeremy and the locals are already irritated by the plans. They fear the potential rise in restaurant visitors.

Jeremy met with local residents to dispel their concerns and assured them that he would work to solve the problem.

He said: “You have my absolute sympathy. They enjoy coming in to my driveway and peeping.

“I am just as keen as all of you to try and manage the situation.”

Parish councillor Hilary Moore has written to West Oxfordfordshire District Council to complain that: “the roads are clogged with traffic and the whole area is becoming a danger zone with fast cars showing off their speeds.”

Now the police have become involved saying they also have concerns about the amount of traffic the expansion plans could have.

Speaking to GloucestershireLive, a spokesperson for the police said: “Thames Valley Police does not have any concerns or objection with regards to this current application, provided the building remains in agricultural use.

“However, we do have some concerns that if this application has been made in anticipation of a future change of use application, there is some potential for disruption in terms of highway safety and the potential for a demand on policing being generated by the site.

“Therefore, we encourage the applicant to consult further with Thames Valley Police in the event that the building is considered in the future for commercial use.

They added: ”To clarify, we do not object to further development to the site.

“However, we do need to ensure that any further development does not have a significant detrimental effect to the local community due to the rural location and the traffic management on minor roads in the vicinity.

“Given this small site has received significant national attention, there has been a noticeable increase in traffic in the vicinity, which needs to be managed safely, should the development be expanded.”
