Headington Headlines #294

Your weekly round-up of local news for 28 November – 4 December.

Thanks to @OxonAndrews for Headington’s Christmas tree and hot chocolate!

@Howard_S took these photos of the switch-on by Lord Mayor Altaf Khan.

The planning application from the ‘Wychwood Foundation’ to build on land next to the C S Lewis nature reserve is not on the agenda of the East Area Planning Committee on 7 December. It is, though, listed for future consideration.

On the other hand, the planning application for a three-storey development at 91 Lime Walk which I reported in HH 292 and which triggered much discussion on the e-democracy forum is on the agenda with a recommendation for refusal.

I made a map of the current heatpipe and Access to Headington roadworks in Headington and those coming up next. I’ll keep it up to date week by week.

St Ebbe’s Church Headington @EbbesHeadington (in Lime Walk) joined twitter.
