Wardington Playground – Playground 200 Club

Wardington Playground Playground 200 Club After 20+ years Wardington Parish Council have taken the decision to end the Playground 200 Club Over recent years there has been a steady decline in the number of members of the Club. As a result income from this source has gradually decreased. This, coupled with recently imposed bank charges, has meant that maintaining the 200 Club is now of negligible net benefit to the upkeep of the Playground. The Parish Council recognize the importance of the Playground to the local community and are committed to maintaining it for the benefit of current and future generations. It will be funded by continuing to take advantage of grants that are available from time to time and

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! 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. To comment on the application see here Comments must be made by June 30. A campaign group called Keep Nethercote Rural has set up a petition against the plan and also has a Facebook page
