Headington Headlines #295

Your weekly round-up of local news for 5 – 11 December.

One year on and all seems to be going well with the heatpipe project. The latest public meeting was uneventful – read my report here.

All my posts about the project are under the ‘Energy Project’ tab in the main menu, and there’s a page of links and contact details here.

The planning application to build 3-storey flats at 91 Lime Walk (see HH292 and 294) was withdrawn at the last minute before the East Area Planning Committee had to make a decision.

Congratulations to @TheMasonsArmsHQ – CAMRA’s Oxford City Pub of the Year 2016!

One of @OxfordCity‘s videos about volunteering features Headington resident Keith, and Bury Knowle Park’s Silver Joggers.

Labour’s candidate for Headington & Quarry in the County Council elections next year is Bill Asquith @asquithbill. He’s been on twitter since August 2013 and has tweeted four times. Let’s hope he quickly comes to appreciate the value of social media in getting his message to a wide audience.

A travellers’ camp has appeared again on the Marston Ferry Road cycle path. The last time this happened was October last year.

My favourite Headington-related tweet of the week:
