A request for outline planning permission for ANOTHER 43 houses, this time on Station Road, has been received by Cherwell DC. It is very similar to the development that was refused in January 2015 and much of the documentation references that application. Letters have been received by neighbours today asking for their views. You can see the application at 21/00500/OUT planningregister.cherwell.gov.uk/planning/Display/21/00500/OUT?cuuid=AE9C2EDB-BB46-4CA5-8A0A1A298...Outline - Erection of up to 43 new homes, access from Station Road and associated works including attenuation pond Location: Land North Of Railway House, Station Road, Hook This is a consultation on the above proposal. If you have any comments to make, please make them by 22 March 2021, either on the planning website, by email or post.(You might be particularly amused by a traffic survey conducted at the end of July 2020, when the school was closed and during a pandemic, or the optimistic view of the bus service). ...

This is a honey bee. The pollen on her legs is from dandelions. Her tongue is sticking out due to what killed her that was on the dandelions.It’s spring, dandelions are the bee's first food. This bee is dead from weed killer spread on what we see as weeds, but what nature sees as food. Please don’t spray for weeds until at least you see the blackberries blooming. In this area, weeds, flowers and fruit trees are bees only source of food until middle of June. There are FAR more weeds than flowers or fruit trees, so it's their only food source.
