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.

One Parish or Two?

Further to some comments on this website and discussions around the village ‘’ (this website) has received the following statement from Adderbury Parish Council:

‘The Parish Council is aware of rumours relating to a split between West Adderbury and East Adderbury, but there are no plans for this. The PC has not received any formal notification or correspondence relating to this suggestion.’

Can we suggest that if you have further comment you address it to the Parish Council

Adderbury Silent Soldier

The Parish Council has decided to support the Royal British Legion’s ‘Silent Soldier’ campaign to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.  The Silent Soldier is a life size silhouette of a soldier returning home after his tour.

The Parish Council has agreed to donate £1,000 towards purchasing a Silent Soldier for installation somewhere in the village, from now until the end of December 2018.

The Silent Soldier could be placed anywhere visible such as village greens, parks, playing fields and gardens, out in the fields, on buildings or perhaps by the side of the road.  The Parish Council has initially thought of approaching Rev Stephen Fletcher about locating it in St Mary’s Church yard.

Do you have an idea about another location?  If so please let the Parish Council know
