In A Massive U-Turn, Clarkson Has Appealed Council’s Decision To Close Restaurant

The saga continues, after reporting that Clarkson has thrown in the towel with regard to opening a restaurant it seems that he’s not quite beaten.

The Clarkson’s Farm star has appealed the West Oxfordshire District Council’s (WODC) decision to close down his restaurant, which opened in a renovated barn on Diddly Squat Farm after finding a loophole.

Clarkson had been hoping to transform his lambing shed into a restaurant, but his plans were rejected by the WODC. His dream of using meat reared on the farm along with neighbouring farm produce was dashed.

But the Top Gear presenter is not done yet as Oxfordshire County Councillor Liam Walker of Oxfordshire County Council shared an appeal document from Mr Jeremy Clarkson to Twitter.

His post read: “All is not over yet… @JeremyClarkson has lodged an appeal against West Oxfordshire District Council for both farm shop car park extension & the enforcement notice for opening a restaurant without planning. The planning inspector will conduct the hearing in March”, LADBible reports.

There will be a lot of fans of the show that will be supporting Clarkson in his appeal. In the show, we saw him meeting with local farmers from the area discussing how each could help provide produce for the seasonal restaurant.

We heard from farmers that are struggling with a range of factors in farming at the minute including TB, which is spread by badgers, deer and other animals and can be really detrimental to the farm.

It will be interesting to see what Clarkson has up his sleeve if the farm doesn’t get the council’s decision overturned as his aim is still to make the farm profitable.

Clarkson and Kaleb were given an award for their efforts in highlighting a range of issues in farming which we saw in the second series of Clarkson’s Farm.
