Radley Lakes Masterplan

Radley Lakes is the area of former minerals workings to the south of Thrupp Lane.  Already popular, especially during the recent lock-down, the area has much greater potential: as a haven of tranquillity, rich in nature, with a wide range of beautiful walks for healthy exercise.

One of the main commitments of the Radley Neighbourhood Plan was the preparation of a masterplan to realise this potential.  In September 2020, there was a public consultation, with over 95% of respondents registering support for the draft plan.

The final masterplan has now been published and is here.  It has been formally endorsed by Radley Parish Council, Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council and the Radley Lakes Trust. A press notice describing the background and its main provisions is here.

Implementation will be overseen by the Radley Lakes Trust. It will be a gradual process over several years involving a wide range of landowners and other stakeholders, and also volunteers from the local community.
