Banbury (Wroxton) Motocross – Villagers’ Concerns

Has anyone in Horley made a previous formal comment or raised a concern in the past about the activities or noise levels experienced from the Banbury (Wroxton) Motocross Club? If so please contact Hornton parish clerk on with details of your complaint by no later than Friday 12 June. For more information please read information below from John Offord, Chairman of Hornton Parish Council:

‘Hornton Parish Council is being consulted by Cherwell District Council (CDC) on the latest move by the owner and organisers of Banbury (Wroxton) Motocross track, just outside Hornton: retrospectively, they are applying for a Lawful Development Certificate to make sure that their existing use of the track is lawful for planning purposes.

There have been widespread concerns in Hornton and nearby – that the track and the scale of its events are now having a detrimental effect.

As part of Hornton Parish Council submission, we are encouraging any resident who has raised any kind of formal, public comment, concern or anxiety about the track at any stage in the last decade or more to let us have a copy of that point or complaint. Not so much what you feel now – but what you have already submitted to raise concerns (or approval). You may have addressed it to the Parish Council as a whole, or to a particular councillor, or to the track managers or to CDC. It may have been to do with noise impact, traffic, concern about planning permission or another aspect of the track. Cindy Koberl, the parish clerk, is compiling a record and will need you to let her have a copy of any letter or email. Please can you send these to her at by no later than Friday 12 June.

Many thanks for your help. We will keep you posted.’
