Headington Headlines #238

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 26 October – 1 November.

The Stansfeld Outdoor Centre in Quarry Road is to be run by The Oxford Trust @scienceoxford.

Oxfordshire County Council has issued some more information on what happens next with the Access to Headington proposals.

The spine road through the Barton Park development is going to be called Barton Fields Road. The earlier proposal of Barton Park Road has been rejected following local protests.

An article in @TheOxfordMail describes the efforts @TheAmpRevival are making to raise funds to buy the Risinhurst pub.

It looks like the conversion of the offices above Kennett House (Iceland & others) into flats is going ahead, but the application to add an extra storey to the building has been withdrawn.
