Water Leak in Wroxton Lane…

Note from Simon Atfield, Chairman of the Parish Council:

“I have been having various conversations with Thames water regarding the leak outside April Cottage. They initially said it was being fixed last Friday but have now said they are coming to have another look tomorrow (Monday) and will then schedule in the work which should be quite quick.”

Fingers Crossed then!

Special Parish Council Meeting – July 14th

Are you concerned about the impact on our village of the closure of the B4100?

There will be a special Parish Council meeting at 7.30 on Thursday July 14th in the Old School to consider the closure of the Warwick Road for 8 weeks starting on 10 August.

This meeting is open to the public.

Agenda Items:

  1. Apologies
  2. Declaration of Interests
  3. Recently the Council has become aware of plans to close the B4100 Warwick Road for a period of 8 weeks from 10 August to 6 October, to facilitate the building of a new sewer.  The closure will be in the vicinity of Dukes Meadow, and will mean that traffic from Horley into Banbury will be required to find an alternative route.  The Parish Council has not been consulted on these proposals, and has had no opportunity to comment.Oxfordshire County Council has been invited to provide an officer to attend the meeting to provide further details, to explain the reasons for the road closure, and the measures which will be put in place to minimise the impact on Horley.
  4. Date of next meeting: 25 August 2016
