Hands off the Oxfordshire Countryside!
CPRE Oxfordshire has launched a joint e-petition with Rural Oxfordshire Action Rally (ROAR) to ask Eric Pickles and our local MPs to end the unrestrained development in the county.
It calls for a number of changes, including an end to the unfair penalties faced by local communities when a District does not have an up to date 5 Year Housing Supply.
The Parish Council would encourage as many people as possible to sign the petition. If you would like to do so, please click on this link.
Please note that ‘The Dove’ has now been replaced by the Milcombe Newsletter.
Milcombe Newsletter will be produced each month and will be available at the Village Hall; Church; The Horse & Groom; and at the New Road Shop.
Contributions, by email (Microsoft Word compatible).
To be received by 18th of month prior to publication.
