For almost two years now, Jeremy Clarkson has been fighting with residents living around his Diddly Squat Farm. But now the complaints have escalated massively as many members of the public have written letters to the local council to complain about the expansion of the site.
The Clarkson’s Farm presenter is looking to add a 60-space car park with a separate entrance after his farm shop became so popular. This was planned to please local residents after many complained of cars being parked on the side of roads around the area. But many still aren’t happy as they call his shop an “eyesore”.
While West Oxfordshire District Council decides on whether these expansion plans will be accepted, residents have sent in several letters which are free to read by the public.
Nigel Winser, from Chadlington, wrote the following in objection:
“If the Farm Shop was loyal to selling local farm produce, the small car park is appropriate.
“Alas, the shop is already selling souvenirs, that attract large number of buyers from all corners of the UK.
