Headington Headlines #85

Here’s my weekly round-up of local news for 5 – 11 November —

Martin Young’s latest planning application for 29 Old High Street was withdrawn at the East Area Planning Committee meeting on Tuesday. Local residents were prepared to accept it but Council officers were recommending refusal.

There was an accident involving a cyclist at the corner of Osler Road and London Road early on Wednesday morning. The road was blocked for more than half an hour.

A man’s gold signet ring was found on Windmill Road last weekend. Details on the e-democracy forum.

The corner shop (F&M’s) at the junction of Merewood Avenue and Burdell Avenue in Sandhills reopened on Tuesday.

@Oxford_Brookes held an Open Day on Saturday.

There doesn’t seem to be much to report this week but instead I’ve got two Headington-related tweets this week which I couldn’t choose between for favorite:

It may have been a quiet week for news but the Headington & Marston e-democracy forum has been particularly busy this week. Active topics:

I try to cover news from the OX3 postcode in Headington and out as far as Barton, Sandhills and Risinghurst (see map). To feed into next week’s summary you can comment on this article, or tweet either with the hashtag #ox3 or @mentioning @TonyOX3.
