Property & Legal Matters

To receive the confidential report of the Deputy Town Clerk.


The Committee received the confidential report and verbal update of the Deputy Town Clerk regarding an application for modification to the Definitive Map and Statements under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (DMO).


Members were advised that Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) was investigating the application and had opened a consultation.


Members discussed the application which the Council had already objected to and agreed that it should encourage that a path is made, as part of the proposed Moors housing development to allow public access between Witney Road and the country park, this removing the possibility of trespassing via the lakeside allotment access road.




1.      That, the report and verbal update be noted and,

2.      That, a further comment is submitted to OCC via the consultation to request a path is requested as part of the planning application for The Moor development.
