Jeremy Clarkson will meet his angry neighbours tonight in a town meeting to discuss the locals’ issues with his Diddly Squat farm shop.

The former Top Gear host, 61, has attracted lots of unwanted attention in the Oxfordshire village of Chadlington since his Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm debuted earlier this summer.

Posters went up around the village, advertising a Q&A meeting to be held Thursday, September 9 at 7pm at Chadlington Memorial Hall.

Mr Clarkson has applied for planning permission to develop the site but Chadlington Parish Council says there are 'concerns'.

The minutes of a meeting last month read: “Chadlington Parish Council has no objections to the proposals detailed in this planning application, however, you will be aware that there was a building control application for the conversion of the lambing shed to form a café on November 2, 2020.

“In addition to this a licensing application was also made in February 2021.”

It notes that application involves the opening of a café/function area adjacent to the shop and areas to sell alcohol and provide entertainment for a maximum of 150 people.

“Whilst the current planning application makes no reference to any of the above as being the reason for these alterations, the parish council is concerned that, in the event of this application being approved, this should not confirm a change of use status for this agricultural building.

“The parish council remains concerned regarding the effect of the incremental development at this location, both upon the local community, its existing shops and an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).

“The number of cars currently visiting this site is already substantial, often filling the existing available parking space and overflowing onto the Chipping Norton Road, which is hardly desirable in an AONB and creates a significant risk that accidents will occur.”

Mr Clarkson has apologised to locals in the past about queues of traffic that had lined up to visit, although it was reported by the Daily Mail that there appeared to be 'ample parking space for motorists coming up to the shop'.
