Planning Application 19/02796/F – OS Parcels 3309 and 4319 adjoining and north of Milton Road:  A report on the Milton Road Project informed the PC that all pre-commencement conditions had been discharged by CDC so the PC could now go ahead with the preparation of the pitches for sport.  The proposed start at the beginning of October had been delayed due to the bad weather.  The Planning Application had now entered the consultation stage and all details were accessible on CDC’s Planning portal.  There had been a welcome number of comments in support of the application.  The Architect had made a few adjustments which had resulted in the application being very slightly delayed.

WFAC:  The planning application had been lodged with CDC and could be seen on their planning website ref no 19/02796/F.  Once planning permission had been given the committee would begin applying for large grants to cover the cost of the building work.  Preparation of the sports pitches at the Milton Road site would begin in the spring or when the weather permitted.  WFAC were considering ideas already put forward to improve the facilities at the Lucy Plackett Playing Field area.  Adderbury Park Football Club were organising a Race Evening on 28 March and other fundraising events included: VE Celebrations Aunt Agatha Tea Party on Sunday 10 May, a Community Day on 19 September; Aunt Agatha Tea Party on 11 October and 13 December.  Owing to the success of the Autumn Ball last year WFAC had donated £200 to Katharine House Hospice, £200 to Lake House and the Let’s Play Project .
