You may have seen that Cherwell District Council has been running a second “final” consultation on the long-term housing needs for the District. Your MC has submitted a formal written response to this latest stage.
Your MC had already appointed a Working Party of Rob Jackson, John Fissenden, Stuart Newstead and David Young to handle our lease negotiations with our landlords (Oxford University Press, Exeter College, Merton College). This same Working Party has written our formal response to the latest consultation, as well as to the first consultation in January. You can read our latest response here. We have written a very short response, focusing on Cherwell’s proposal to allow a new golf course to be built on a small plot of land located around 1/2 mile from NOGC in the event that planning permission is granted on our current site and houses are built. We have highlighted to Cherwell Council that their idea for a new golf course has no merit at all.
We will provide further information once we have it from our landlords or from Cherwell District Council.
