A public exhibition and meeting to outline Cherwell District Council's draft appraisal for Cropredy Conservation area has been postponed. The event had been scheduled to take place at Cropredy Village Hall on Friday 15 February but has been put back to allow more time for people to get involved.
Cllr Ken Atack, (pictured) who represents the council's Cropredy ward, said: "This exhibition and meeting will still go ahead but we felt it was such an important issue that one week was not enough time to inform people. We didn't want people to be unfairly excluded from attending due to the short notice so we have rescheduled the exhibition. We want as many people as possible to attend this exhibition and give their feedback on the proposals."
The draft appraisal is the first to be taken in the area since 1995. It looks at the special character and appearance of the village and sets out important features to preserve or enhance. The document also suggests a management plan for Cropredy and proposes buildings to be included on the Register of Local Heritage Assets.
The rescheduled exhibition will now take place on 11 April at Cropredy Village Hall, from 3.30pm to 6.30pm, followed by a public meeting from 7pm to 8.30pm. Documents for the draft appraisal will also be available to view online at a later date - follow the link on the right.
