As you are doubtless aware, Vistry Homes have submitted an outline planning application to Cherwell District Council to build 170 houses on the fields between Hanwell and Banbury.
Details of the application, together with a form to comment on and track the application, can be found here: Vistry Homes Planning Application. Comments are due by 19 May 2023.
It is important that all comments are sent directly to Cherwell District Council before the closing date.
Whilst the application relates to land in Hanwell Parish, if you would like to make your views on the application known to the Horley Parish Council for their information, please send an email to: email@example.com. NB: This should be in addition to sending comments directly to Cherwell District Council.
The action group Keep Hanwell Village Rural, is running a public meeting tomorrow evening from 7.45pm at the Old School, to give more information about both the Vistry application to build 170 homes between Hanwell and Banbury and the proposed solar development on BOTH sides of the B4100, covering over 80 hectares.
Do please come along to find out more about these developments and how they will affect Horley.
Another Hanfest just over the road in our sister village Hanwell with a few folk from Horley and Horton! The 3H’s now have music and crafts to add to our gardening collaborations. What a creative community we have here in our little corner of North Oxfordshire, hope to see you there. Deb
“Thanks so much for all your help over the past few hours as we have tried to track down my father in law Wim, if you didn’t hear, he was found safe and sound in the Premier Inn in Banbury.
I am honestly moved to tears by how Hanwell has pulled together when someone is in need. I do sometimes worry a bit about Wim and Margaret being so far from us but now I know they have scores of friends who are looking out for them day and night, who will be willing to drop everything and venture out into the cold to help. You guys are pure class, thank you, and next time I’m in the Moon, I’ll buy you all pint!”
This morning (3/2/16) from Margaret about her experience in finding her Husband Vim last night:
“I just want to say how totally amazing the Banbury Police were yesterday evening dealing with Wim’s disappearance . They sprung into action within 10 mins of my call at 6.30pm & their support was amazing. The Hospital too when he went in for a thorough check up, 6 hours later. These people get such a lot of bad press but I thought I should mention how totally dedicated & kind they all were.”
Thanks to Natasha from The Red Lion for calling me after she had received a call, I posted the Neighbourhood Alert and connected to the Hanwell Community alert. What a wonderful demonstration of community spirit working with the Emergency Services and combined with social media. So glad that Vim was found so that Margaret and their family and friends could sleep easily last night, I know I did Rgds Debra
