FoSB is an independent action group who have formed to help represent the massive local opposition to Oxford United Football Club's (OUFC) plans to take over Stratfield Brake. We aim to:
As a self-formed group of residents from the local community, we clearly cannot compete with the financial resources of a commercial organisation with a large fan base but we are determined to make our voices heard.
Our members include football fans who sympathise with OUFC’s plight, but firmly believe Stratfield Brake is not an appropriate solution.
We remain committed to information-sharing and holding to account public authority decision-makers who have been elected to represent the local community.
To run an effective campaign, we really need as much support as possible, so if you care as much as we do about keeping Stratfield Brake green and available to us all in the local community, please join us.
Our local parish councils’ sub-lease interests run until 2097.
They have the power to simply say NO to OUFC. We must act now to make our voices heard.
Both the proposal and the public consultation process regarding OUFC’s stadium plans are of deep concern to local residents.
It will cost our parish councils £1,000s to consult local residents and it is now looking unlikely that all local residents will be given a vote, so the consultation might be by limited sample survey which may favour OUFC.
We need to make our voices heard !
