News and upcoming events in and around Bucknell

Phoenix Singers ‘Celebration of Christmas’ Concert in St. Peter’s Church, Bucknell on Sunday December 10th 2023 at 7.30pm. Hopefully you will be able to join us for an evening of fabulous Christmas Music and Readings plus a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie! A chance to listen to carols old and new as well as having the chance to join in yourselves.

The draft Cherwell Local Plan - 2040 was approved at a Cherwell District Council meeting earlier this week to be issued for consultation.

That consultation will likely start next week and will run for just 6 weeks.

The impact of the plan on Bucknell is huge and we only have 6 weeks to make our views known.

The more comments that are received by Cherwell, the more weight those views will have, so we really do need to ask you to participate in the consultation.

The document is huge.

340 pages of development joy.

But we’re here to help!

There is a specific page on the village website where we are posting relevant information over the coming days and weeks.

You can access a copy of the draft plan - page 158 for the Bicester plan and then 248, 249 and 250 to see the maps that show just how close it will all come to Bucknell.

There is a Parish Council meeting on Monday 11 September (7:30pm, Village Hall) where this will likely be the key subject for conversation. All are welcome to attend (we may even have our CDC Councillors present!)

Looking for inspiration for your letters to Councillors and committee members at Cherwell District Council following the Firethorn Appeal and the effects that it will have across the region?

Look no further - just go to the HawkHell page - to see the Parish Council's letter sent tor the Planning Committee members, the Scrutiny Committee members and Rees, the Chief Executive.

We have asked for rapid responses from them all given the nature of the letter and the consequences of the civil servants' actions. We'll update here as we hear back from them.
