Save Loyd Fields update

Posted in Didcot, News with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2017 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Although the planning permission for the proposed housing development on Loyd Fields was turned down by South Oxfordshire Council, the developer has appealed. You can get more updates at their Facebook page Save Loyd Fields 

More proposed development this time by Taylor Wimpey at Hagbourne Fields. There is a campaign page here Hands Off Hagbourne Fields to keep up to date.

On a more local level, we have a lovely little bit of hedgerow next to a local footpath which has just been closed Taylor Wimpey as part of their ongoing GWP development.

They used a digger to move a small pile of earth and in the process removed some hedgerow – sledgehammer to crack a nut springs to mind! This patch of hedgerow/brambles is home to nesting wood pigeons, a pair of magpies and we have regular visits from sparrows, starlings, blue tits, wrens, dunocks and great tits. Hopefully it will survive Taylor Wimpey’s construction although understandably it will disturb the local bird life and wildlife.

Update from the Save Loyd Fields Facebook page –

“Our planning committee meeting date has been confirmed and we need you! – October 9th, 18:00 at the Fountain Conference Centre, Crowmarsh, OX10 8BA.

We are looking for as many of you to attend as possible, this is where we show the South Oxfordshire District Council how strongly we object to these plans by coming together as one.

We’ll be designing, printing and laminating posters for people to use on the day, but nothing says protest like a bunch of homemade signs, (no pitchforks please!) so if you can design your own that would be excellent.”

You can get more details at the Facebook page here.
