Objection to Application No. 19/00128/HYBRID

Wardington Parish Council has already objected to the above application. In summary our objections to the proposed development are: It does not conform with the stated aims for ‘Banbury 15’ in the CDC Local Plan It will increase traffic volumes and congestion well beyond that envisaged in the CDC Local Plan for the site. This will put more pressure on M40 Junction 11, the A361 in both directions, roads in and out of Banbury and villages to the north in Oxfordshire and South Northants. As a result Wardington Parish Council continues to object strongly to the Application. Should it be approved, we want mitigating measures for Wardington, Williamscot and Coton imposed on the developer and the relevant authorities as conditions

HS2 Update – A361 Road Improvements

HS2 Update - A361 Road Improvements In case you are not aware,  Dawnus working on behalf of Fusion, HS2’s Enabling Works Contractor, entered administration on 14th  March 2019.

Gates down Church Walk

At the most recent Wardington Parish Council Meeting, Jan Funnell raised the problem of the gates down church walk (the pathway down the hill opposite the church.) On occasions the small, old, kissing gate has been taken off its hinges and has had to be replaced on its hinges. More importantly, further down church walk, on the left, a gate gives access to the field, but this gate does not give access to the field for walkers as it is not part of the public footpath. On occasions cattle have escaped because the gate has been left open. The chain and padlock installed to ensure the gate remains shut have been removed, again allowing the cattle to escape. There is
