    So less than 21 per cent of the village gets to spend the village’s money. Way to go, Adderbury! Judicial Review will be fun

      What’s the equivalent word for “remoaner” after the Parish Poll. And yes, what a good Idea to risk thousands of pounds of public money on a judicial review because a small number of people will use whatever tactics they can to get their own way, even though the majority don’t agree.

      I am not sure what a judicial review will actually achieve. If you visit

      https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/you-and-the-judiciary/judicial-review/

      one will see that it states:

      “It is not really concerned with the conclusions of that process and whether those were ‘right’, as long as the right procedures have been followed. The court will not substitute what it thinks is the ‘correct’ decision.

      This may mean that the public body will be able to make the same decision again, so long as it does so in a lawful way.”

      The majority of those in the village who did vote on the question “Do you support the plans for football pitches and a clubhouse on the land north of Milton Road?” voted for Yes. Even if a judical review eventually did find flaws in the process, the village has given the parish council a democratic mandate on what to do with the land in question.

    Congratulations to Mr Betts for instigating the Parish Poll! He has given the village the opportunity to voice its true opinion on the north Milton Road sports field once and for all. The PC now has the mandate to go ahead and give us the facilities that Adderbury really needs and deserves.

    Come on now Adderbury, let’s work together for this lovely village. Let ‘Respect’ be the order of the day.To the Parish Councillors and villagers who have taken personal disrespect to a new low,I, on behalf of all of us who have been dismayed,ask you to desist. Well done Adderburians of all opinions,for voting yesterday.

    After the successful democratic Yes vote yesterday by the good people of Adderbury for sports facilities and a new community centre on the Milton Road I hope that the Parish Councillors who were against the plans will now accept the result with good grace and dignity.
    I also hope that they will now all work together to give the residents of this village what they voted for and get on with the job NOW.

    Well done to the village for a solid turnout – 36% is a bit better than most Local Council elections. Well done also to all who voiced their opinions in the process and allowed the village to vote armed with information and sentiment.

    I do hope though that we avoid having to rely on more developer money (beyond the NK Homes “cash for approval” deal in the offing) to be able to support the promises that have been made. I’m sure many of us now feel that Adderbury has enough new housing.
