It was noted that the Planning application relating to Sir Georges Lane had been withdrawn.
A letter had been received from South Northamptonshire Council relating to the proposal for an erection of building for Class B1, B2 and B8 purposes (unit 7), car parking and servicing at Cherwell Valley Silos, Banbury Lane, Kings Sutton. The PC proposed to object but if the plan does go forward would look for time restrictions on traffic and a contribution to the cost of the infrastructure.
There was discussion with regard to the partial review of the Cherwell Local Plan (Oxford’s Unmet Housing Needs).
A report was received of a meeting held between APC and the Management of Adderbury House relating to an application for a single storey side extension to dwelling, a new secondary access and driveway, repairs to the ice house, loggia and entrance arch and landscaping of parkland. There were concerns over the modern style of the building and the PC would like to be assured that the conservation officer was in support of this style of extension. There was comment on the proposed new entrance. Any contribution to the cost of renovating the ice house would be very welcome.
With regard to the outline application on Phase 2 Longford Park, Oxford Road, Bodicote for a residential development of up to 700 swellings, the PC felt that this was already a done deal. There was concern over the inevitable additional traffic congestion and better transport measures were needed. The movement and flow of traffic needed to be thought through with particular note of any alterations to be made at the Oxford Road/Aynho Road junction.
Parish Council Vacancy: There had been one applicant and Rod Head would be co-opted onto the PC.
Annual Parish Meeting: The complaint made at the meeting addressing issues which arose at the APM was not upheld and the Chairman made a statement to this PC meeting.
Parish Council Surgery: There was one visitor who brought up the subject of the overgrown path between Rochester Way and Walton Avenue. It was agreed to get some quotes over the summer and bring the matter to the next PC meeting.
Health and Safety: Conditions at The Rise and Lakes were fine. At the Lucy Plackett there was an overhanging tree that needed cutting back and one of the footholds on the climbing wall needed tightening up.
Working for Adderbury (WFAC): It was agreed that the Working Group would move forward with their plans for the land on Milton Road.
Vexatious Complaints Policy: It was agreed that this would be adopted.
Play Equipment Project: Councillors Bratt, Jelfs, Rye and Lyons would liaise to project manage.
FOCAL: A report on FOCAL was received from Councillor Mitchell. Two fundraising events had been held, raising over £800. Interviews had been held for the new library manager and an appointment had been made but was still subject to final confirmation. Peter Britton has taken on the role of Secretary and another recruit is needed to take on the role of Treasurer.
LAP/LEAP Community Area – Adderbury Fields: A report was considered and it was decided to defer a decision until more information about the financial implications and landscaping issues were obtained.
Forest Schools Project: The PC would liaise with Christopher Rawlins School to develop this area and clear a small area of nettles. Discussions would continue.
Ice House Project: A report from the Chairman was received and discussions would continue with Adderbury House owners.
Oxford Road Traffic: It was agreed to request a survey on both north and south bound traffic on the Oxford Road, preferably well into September when normal traffic flow had resumed after the school holidays.
Next Meting: 12 September Church House 7.30 pm.
