Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 18 – 24 May.
If you missed the Barton Park presentations (the last was on Tuesday) you can see the developer’s display boards here.
Surveyors were seen on Tuesday taking measurements for a possible extension of the car park at @ManorSurgery in Osler Road. The surgery is planning a significant expansion – see HH207 and this Oxford Mail article.
The Ampleforth Arms in Risinghurst is on the market for £700k as an “unopposed community pub”.
A crash at the Headington roundabout on Wednesday morning caused traffic delays in all direstions and as far out as Elsfield.
Despite the recently-announced cuts in subsidies from Oxfordshire CC, Stagecoach has said there will be no changes to the timetables of routes 14 and 14a serving Marston/Old Marston. The company also says that with the completion of the Loondon Road roadworks, the 800 & 900 hospital services will revert to a 20 minute frequency — they’ve been every 30 minutes while the works have been happening.
