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. Dawnus were appointed to construct the by-pass at Chipping Warden so work has been halted.  In addition, Dawnus was also the sub-contractor responsible for carrying out the necessary road improvements  through Wardington.

HS2 have advised us that the news about Dawnus was disappointing for them and the wider UK construction industry, HS2 and Fusion are working hard to implement contingency plans to ensure the works are delivered with minimal disruption.
