Headington Headlines #342

Your weekly round-up of local news for 30 October – 5 November.

Police cordoned off part of Copse Lane in Marston last weekend after reports that a teenage girl had been assaulted.

EF International’s planning application to redevelop their site at Cotuit Hall (reported in HH312) goes to the east Area Planning Committee on Wednesday this week (8 November). The officers’ recommendation is to approve the application subject to conditions. One of the conditions is for a travel plan:

The plan shall detail how pupil access to the site is to be managed, including at start/end of terms, how vehicle movements to and from the site are to be minimised, the means for implementing the plan, method of monitoring and amending the plan on an annual basis. The results of the annual monitoring exercise shall be submitted to the local planning authority in writing and the travel plan amended accordingly in light of discussions with the local planning authority.

Last week I mentioned the missing cycle parking stands at Westgate. Here’s the story.

Since then work has started to install the missing racks.

Staying with the cycling theme, here’s our very own EF language schools in their latest sponsorship venture. This is a World Tour Team so expect to see them in all the big races.

The highest-ranked football team based in OX3, @OxCityFC, who are second bottom in the National League South, pulled off a great victory against League Two’s Colchester, 56 places above them, with a 1-0 away win in the first round of the FA Cup.

Following the official opening of the Margaret Road sports pavilion last week, here’s the Oxford Mail’s article and picture gallery about it.
