The consultation of Changes to Cherwell Local Plan Proposed Submission, amended Proposals Maps and an updated Sustainability Appraisal is now ended. The Society has filed a response. We eagerly await the publication of this Local Plan.

The Society's Canalside Vision complements our response to the Cherwell District Council consultation on the proposed regeneration of Banbury’s 'Canalside' area, the greatest potential change to affect Banbury for a generation.

We produce a newsletter twice a year to keep our members and interested parties informed. 

You can also read our current news from the menu at the left.
