Headington Headlines #281

Your weekly round-up of local news for 29 August – 4 September.

File under ‘Unexpected’. Katrina Percy, the much-criticised CEO of Southern Health NHS Trust, resigned from her post on Tuesday. Campaigners will be disappointed that she will still play a part in the organisation: her resignation statment says she is “delighted to be taking on an alternative role, providing strategic advice to local GP leaders as they work with others to transform the way in which health services are delivered across Hampshire”.

Three landlords with properties in Grays Road and Valentia Road have been given 6 months in which to stop using the houses as HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupancy) as they contravene the City’s housing policy and do not have planning permission.

I came across this account of a visit to C S Lewis’ house The Kilns and the nature reserve in Risinghurst by self-confessed C S Lewis fan @citizenofanvard.
