March 10th, 2014 by Kate Griffin Leave a reply »

Oxfordshire County Council is putting together its policy on the extraction of gravel and sharp sand between now and 2030.  There will be a meeting at Eynsham Village Hall on Friday 28th March at 7pm for residents to learn more about the plans and have their say. Peter Day from the county council’s planning department will give a summary of the draft policy and explain how it has changed from earlier versions. He will also answer any questions. The meeting will be chaired by Charles Mathew (county councillor for Eynsham division) and Gordon Beach (parish councillor for Eynsham and also district councillor for Eynsham & Cassington ward).

If you can’t attend the meeting, you can still read the draft policy online:

There will be further consultation in the autumn but comments made now (before April 7th) have more chance of influencing the policy.
