Those who attended the packed Parish Annual Meeting on 30th March will know that a group of residents, led by Friends of Stratfield Brake (FoSB) called for a Parish Poll. Their aim is to test Kidlington residents’ opinion on the PRINCIPLE of having this major commercial sporting venue in Kidlington or near the village. FoSB think that it is important to know if a majority of residents are opposed to the stadium BEFORE entering into detailed negotiations.
The question we are being asked is Should Kidlington Parish Council support the building of a stadium for Oxford United Football Club in Kidlington?
Everyone who is opposed - or unsure about the stadium need to VOTE NO.
Cherwell District Council have sent the proposed draft Local Plan back for amendment.
Officers instructed "More should be done to maintain the Green Ring around Kidlington"
Our well argued case to create two Local Green Spaces (LGS) to the SE and W of St Mary's church failed to be included in the draft Cherwell Local Plan 2040.
With the Parish Council's full support, we had proposed that the field North of the Moors (the Bury Moor Fields) and the Church Street Conservation area fields met the governments criteria to be awarded the additional protection of LGS designation.
