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

17/02394/OUT – Adjoining and East of Last House Adjoining And North Of Berry Hill Road Adderbury

The consultation on the amended plans for this development is open until end of Thursday 22 March.  Anyone who was not able to comment on the initial application in December, now is your chance.

Outline planning permission for up to 53 dwellings with associated landscaping, open space and vehicular access off Berry Hill Road.

Plans are available on using the above reference.

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.

Day of Dance – 28 April

Once again, Adderbury will be whipping its hankies, ringing the bells and bashing those sticks. On Saturday 28 April Adderbury Village Morris Men, Sharp & Blunt and Adderbury Morris Men will be dancing around the village to celebrate Adderbury’s Day of Dance. Join us all for a day of well, dancing and maybe a drink or two. Come and say “hello” and perhaps even get involved with one of your local Morris sides.
