Jeremy Clarkson’s Neighbors Back Plans For Diddly Squat Farm Restaurant After Bid Was Rejected

JEREMY Clarkson was thrown into disarray when plans to set up a restaurant in Diddly Squat were scrapped by the local council, but there may still be new hope.

The 1,000-acre farm is located on Amazon Prime’s popular Clarkson’s Farm, where fans get to see Jeremy start farming.

The presenter revealed he was gutted when Oxfordshire council laid out his plan, but he now has the backing of his neighbours.

Many farmers, food producers and residents believe the restaurant will bring jobs to the area.

A neighboring farmer, Pete Ledbury, quashed the council’s refusal, telling the Guardian: “We knew we had to diversify to make a living and create more jobs for the countryside.”

“Rejecting projects like this doesn’t help. I think that’s the short-sightedness of the planners,” he added.

Pete’s wife Emma explained that the couple had lost almost half of their livestock after tuberculosis ravaged the herd and called livestock farming in the UK “a mess”.

Max Abbot, the owner of a nearby bakery, also expressed anger at the decision.

He said: “Jeremy is hiring people, bringing in money. He’s not everyone’s cup of tea but what the council is doing seems ridiculous.”

Victoria Steffens from the village shop Chadlington admits she sees Clarkson as a “marmite”, but loves the restaurant’s job-creating potential.

The support comes after a meeting between Jeremy and West Oxfordshire County Council’s planning subcommittee earlier this week.

The presenter made a good case, stating: “Farmers won’t be able to do it much longer because of their financial situation.”

“We have been told as farmers to diversify – that is exactly the proposition,” he added.

However, seven out of ten councilors voted against the plans after more than 50 objections were raised – with increased traffic in the area being one of the top concerns.

Jeremy said the results represent a bad day for farmers.
