Oxfordshire Survey of People Living in Recently Build Houses

Oxfordshire County Council is currently carrying out a short, census style survey of households occupying homes that were built in the county over the last ten years.  The survey is designed to understand what type of services and other infrastructure the community needs.  This information will be used when negotiating the contribution developers should make to support further housing growth.

Survey forms were sent out to most new households at the beginning of October, with a deadline for the return of completed forms of Friday 17th November.

So for those of you who are living in recently built homes it would be really helpful if you could complete the survey.  More information can be found www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/housingsurvey where you can also complete the survey on line.

A letter on the Parish Poll from 32 Adderbury residents

On May 11th at Christopher Rawlins Primary School, between 4pm until 9pm there will be a village Poll to ask Adderbury residents to either support the intention of using the community land at Milton Rd for football –2 pitches, large clubhouse/community building and parking for up to 100 cars – OR reject this plan and demand that a wider community use for the land is sought. The Adderbury Parish Council (APC) is split on this issue, councillors living furthest away from the development appear to support the football option and those who live less than a mile of the development oppose it.

“Now that the protective hedge has been removed to expose them in all their glory, can someone please explain to me how such ugly and inappropriate houses on Milton Road (north) were ever granted planning permission.  Trish Fennell”

This letter has been written by SIX of the 12 members of Adderbury Parish Council – Diane Bratt, Chairman of Adderbury Parish Council, David Griffiths, Vice Chairman, Ann Lyons, Keith R Mitchell CBE, Martin Rye, and Chris Shallis.

Parish Council Land at Milton Road

A number of years ago, the original owners wished to donate some land in the village to improve the sport facilities that the village has. As residents may be aware, the current provision which is located at the Lucy Plackett Playing Field frequently floods and it unusable on a number of occasions during the year.
