Campaign to Save Radley Village gets underway

The opening shot in the battle to save Radley from being devastated by the ill-thought-out plan to build 710+ new homes in the parish, mostly in the next 5 years, was fired today with the delivery of over 500 letters of objection to the Vale of White Horse Planning Policy Cabinet Member, Mr Mike Murray. About 50 people, mainly from Radley, some from other parishes, gathered to oversee the event. They were addressed by Radley Parish Councillor, Chris Henderson and by Graham Steinsberg, who seems to have emerged as the leader of the new Save Radley Village campaign.

[important]Members of the community and anyone concerned about protecting the Green Belt should take note of the seriousness of this threat, which is both imminent and irreversible. People must stand up and be counted, make their views felt, both now and at the ballot box, and lend their full support to the campaign.  [/important]
