There was a stay of execution until August to allow for consultations. This extension was funded by Northants CC and Oxfordshire CC. A further postponement until January 2023 has been agreed.

FINAL CALL to action: planning application to build over 160 acres of Banbury farmland

The window for objections is about to close. Please ACT NOW! https://www.banburyguardian.co.uk/news/people/developers-shock-hamlet-with-premature-planning-application-to-build-over-160-acres-of-banbury-farmland-3721654 An application has been lodged with Cherwell District Council for outline planning permission to build industrial estates over 140 acres of ancient pasture on both sides of the A422 off Junction 11 of the M40 motorway. The development would link the new ‘Frontier Park’ warehousing with the M40 in the south, burying farmland once thought to be untouchable. The applicants say the industrial units would total 140,000 square metres and be used for storage and 24-hour distribution.

Reproduced below is a letter sent by Wardington Parish Council Chair, Malcolm Patterson, to Banbury MP Victoria Prentis.

Jubilee Tree planting

A small team from St Mary Magdalene Church gathered  in the church yard on Sunday around the tree which was planted early in February to mark the  70th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s accession to the throne. The tree, a handkerchief tree (Davidii involucrata), has recently come into leaf and eager small hands helped to build a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to fertilise the roots and conserve moisture in the summer months. It is hoped that future generations will be able to enjoy watching it thrive. The tree is near to the footpath between the back of the old school and the allotments and near to the to the site of the lime tree
