The Begbroke and Yarnton Green Belt Campaign featured on the front page of The Oxford Times (5 Oct 2017) and inside there were related editorial and letters.
Chairman of the Begbroke and Yarnton Green Belt campaign, Giles Lewis, said: “We were effectively told to ‘get lawyered up’ but we have been convinced for sometime that this is the way to go.
“We are quite humbled by how many people have contributed and are well on our way to achieving the target.
“They have rushed to come up with this plan for 4,000 homes in the Green Belt and we think we can challenge the procedure.
He added: “Our initial advice suggests the sands are shifting underneath Cherwell District Council.”
