Residents Proposal for Traffic Filtering

Residents may remember that Friends of Quarry produced a plan for traffic regulation in Quarry in 2013 which can be found on our website.

Recently some residents of Quarry have proposed an alternative idea which involves curtailing the free passage of cars through Quarry. You can find this at, and can comment on the ideas there.

Oxford Local Plan 2036 Consultation

On Thursday November 1st the Oxford City Local Plan will be opened to the public for consultation.

The details of the plan will be available on line and copies of the plan can be found in the local libraries in the city.  

Comments on the plan will be sent to the Planning Inspector for consideration in the summer of 2019. All responses to the plan have to be made on the appropriate forms, must indicate the policy that they address, indicate how that policy can be improved, and furthermore they must relate to the “tests of soundness” of the plan.  

The procedures to follow are described at this site. You can talk to the local Planning Officers responsible for the plan at the meetings on these dates.

  • Wednesday 7th November 2018 4-7pm ( St Aldate’s Room, Town Hall )
  • Saturday 17th November 2018 10am-1pm ( Judge’s Room, Town Hall )

The consultation ends on 13th December 2018, and the City Council hopes to have the Planning Inspector’s report on the Plan in the Summer of 2019, and to implement it by the end of 2019.

FOQ 2018 AGM, 22 November 2018, 1930, Coach House

The AGM will be held on the 22nd November in the Coach House at
7:30pm. There are a two motions to be put to the meeting which
require changes to the constitution:

1. The committee asks that the treasurer be allowed to serve for a
maximum than five years.

This is asked for because we have had difficulty in finding someone
to take over from our current treasurer, and the constitution requires
that committee officers serve only for three years.

2. The current annual £2 membership fees be increased to £2.50,
with the option of a 10 year membership at £20.

This reasons for this change were given in the last Newsletter and
have to do with the fact that the membership fee has not changed for some time, and that the small fee is difficult to collect.

The details of the agenda for the AGM will be circulated later.

We hope to see you at the AGM.
