The City Council’s Executive Board will consider a proposal to introduce parking charges at Court Place Farm, Marston. This is the site of parking for OXSRAD, Oxford City FC and for the Council itself. It’s said to be used currently by commuters, probably working at the JR. The report to the Exec Board is here. If approved, the proposal will have to go to the County Council as Highways Authority, when it will be opened to public consultation.
Bury Knowle Park was again awarded a Green Flag, one of six Oxford parks to receive this recognition.
Cyclists beware! @quarry_cycles spotted this cut-through cycle stand in Headington. The cut, covered with tape, lets a padlock cable be forced through so the bike plus padlock can be lifted and carried away.

The Headington Shark was in the news this week, being cleaned and repainted to mark its 32nd birthday.
