BUTTS PIECE - Latest news

The allotments have been let and are busy being planted and cultivated. Some plots still available, both large and small, if interested contact the Parish Clerk. The initial annual rent is set at £25 for a full size plot which includes water. If you want to join the committee and help administer the allotments contact the Parish Clerk.

The kick-about area will now receive some attention before attention moves onto the woodland area where pathways and clearings will be developed (after the nesting season).


The Parish Council is determined to build on the good works carried out by so many last year and is actively setting out to keep all the public areas of our Village neat and tidy in 2010. However it is with great reluctance that the Village has not been entered in the annual competition this year as no Action Team could be put together. However there is always 2011 to look forward to!

Annual Parish Plan

One area of concern to many of those who responded to the Questionnaire was the Traffic though the Village. A small working group has been established with a brief to explore ways to relieve those concerns. As a start we have been in contact with Oxon.C.C. and are in the process of arranging some traffic monitoring equipment to be used in the Village to give us some real time facts with which to work. This will then enable us to identify and address the problem areas.

Various News Items

The Monica Lawson Memorial design competition has ended and the Judges have chosen the winning designs. Those designs are now in the process of being fabricated in readiness for their unveiling at the competition award day. Watch this space!

The position with dog fouling continues to improve slowly, but there are still too many irresponsible dog owners allowing their dogs to foul the Village. Doggy bags can be obtained from the Village Shop, and a small donation would be received with a welcome. Three more Dog Bins have arrived and are being erected in areas of the Village not yet provided with this facility.

In the week that S.O.D.C. were due to commit the Didcot area housing development to the area north of Ladygrove the Secretary of State wrote to all District Councils informing them of a national review of future housing plans. S.O.D.C. immediately withdrew the plans from active consideration so now we will all have to wait and see whether the areas to the West and East of the the Village come back into contention! Watch this space and be prepared to fight.
