Whatever happened to the Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan?

Good question – Following six weeks’ consultation with villagers and other stakeholders earlier this year, the revised plan was approved by the Parish Council in May and duly submitted to Cherwell District Council.
As we had previously met with them and sought their advice on a number of occasions, we believed that their role in vetting the Plan for legalities and any further issues would be just a formality, before they passed it out for another six weeks’ consultation as expected.

Dog Fouling in Adderbury

It has been brought to the attention of Adderbury Parish Council that dog fouling is an issue around the village generally and specifically in The Rise. Therefore, the Parish Council would kindly remind dog owners to clean up after their pets and use the bins provided for the health and safety of the community.
If the problem persists the Parish Council will have to engage the services of the Dog Warden, which may result in fines for irresponsible dog owners.

Adderbury & Milton Royal British Legion Appeal for New Members

This is an  appeal on behalf of the Royal British Legion, Adderbury andMilton Branch.  Our branch has been in existence since 1922 so this is our 95th year.  I would like to appeal or offer an invitation, on behalf of the Branch, for more new members.  Our numbers are very low and we do not seem to be attracting any new interest.  We are currently meeting bi-monthly and we meet at the Bowls Club on a Thursday at 2.00 pm.

Can You Help Edit Adderbury Contact?

By volunteering you help ensure Contact continues to be an important part of village life informing the community and helping local businesses.

Housing Development on North Milton Road – Where’s the Hornton Stone??

The appearance of this development is extremely sensitive as the gateway to Adderbury immediately before the conservation area.

Disappointingly, as you can now see, these houses are being built in a rather bright red brick – possibly similar to those as you approach Bloxham? – when most villagers expected Hornton stone on the outward facing properties and brick out of view as you approach the village – such as has been successfully achieved in the Adderbury Fields and Aynho Road developments.
