REMINDER – Information Session on Housing Development next to School

Development of 44 Houses on Milton Road Information Session

Deanfield Homes Ltd has acquired the site for 44 houses with outline planning permission, which was granted in December 2017. It hopes to start building in October once the various conditions attaching to the planning permission have been fulfilled.

They have agreed to offer an information session for interested members of the village. This will take place on Tuesday 17th July between 4pm and 8pm in the Committee Room of the New Beaconsfield Hall. It will be on a drop- in basis and members of Deanfield staff will be on hand to talk informally about their plans.

Deanfield Homes was formed in 2016 and examples of their recent projects in Tackley and Ducklington can be found on their website.

Whilst this is not a formal consultation session as planning permission has already been granted, the general building plan has evolved over time and this will be an opportunity for local residents to leave their comments.

Your Parish Council would welcome your views following your visit on 17th July. Details of how to do this can be found at the session.

Oxford Rail Upgrade work starts on Saturday and runs until 22 July

The Oxford Upgrade work to remodel the track and reduce congestion and delays around Oxford starts this Saturday 7 July.  It is an extensive piece of work and will mean line closures and diversions through to Sunday 22 July.  There will then be a further weekend line closure on 28 and 29 July.

More details including diversionary routes, bus times and alternative car park arrangements are on our dedicated Oxford upgrade web page https://www.gwr.com/travel-updates/planned-engineering/oxford2018

We have used social and traditional media, on board and at station messages, staff at stations and on trains to alert customers, and we will have extra staff on hand to help throughout the line closure.
