Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan – Update

The draft Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to an independent examiner on 1 March 2018.  Neighbourhood planning is a right for communities to shape development in their area through the production of a Neighbourhood Plan.  If the plan is approved, including through a community referendum, it has the same legal status as the Local Plan which means that it comes into force as part of the statutory development plan for the area.

Cold Weather Message From Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police have sent a really helpful message to remind us of the problems that this returning cold weather may cause. They are particularly concerned about ensuring we keep warm and what to do if there is a power failure.

Please have a look and whilst thinking about your own home consider talking to vulnerable people in the neighbourhood who might also need a hand.

Warning – Telephone Scam

Thames Valley Police have received several calls from residents around the Chipping Norton area saying that they are receiving calls from a person claiming to be from HM Customs. The caller is stating that the resident owes them a lot of money.  Fortunately, to date, no personal details have been disclosed.

If you should receive a call from anyone claiming to be from HM Customs, or the like, and that you owe serious amounts of money please do not give any personal details out.

Colin Butler Green – Residents Consultation

The Parish Council would like to hear the views of Adderbury residents on their proposal for a new footpath around the edge of Colin Butler Green. The suggestion is that pedestrians from the Horn Hill Road direction could walk from the existing footpath across the first entrance to Manor Road and then follow the curve around the Colin Butler Green on the new footpath. They could then cross the second entrance to Manor Road, opposite the entrance to Cross Hill House.

Should you have any comments, please email them to or ring the Clerk to the Parish Council, Theresa Goss, on 01295 710965.
