CONTROVERSIAL plans to turn a Bicester house into a children’s home should be approved, a council planning officer said.
Cherwell District Council’s Rebecca Horley has urged its planning committee to pass the G4S plan for six-bedroom Magnolia House in Banbury Road, on Thursday night.
Some 21 people objected with concerns about extra traffic and anti-social behaviour like “vandalism, intimidation, children smoking and using bad language”.
The outsourcing firm said the children would be placed there because of family or foster placement breakdowns.
The committee will meet at Bodicote House, White Post Road, Bodicote, Banbury, on Thursday at 4pm.
The public can attend.
