We are very pleased that Kidlington residents were able to have their say yesterday (10th May) on Oxford United's plan. Turnout was an amazing 30% - very similar to the recent local elections. The results speak for themselves: almost 70% of voters said NO a stadium in Kidlington.

This is our chance to make our voices heard. Please vote between 4pm and 9pm at your local polling station, and remind family and friends to do the same. (No photo ID is required and Polling Cards have not been issued). Oxford United and OxVox will do everything they can to mobilise their Kidlington fanbase. It’s crucial we do the same. Please offer assistance if you can to anyone who may struggle to get to the polling station.

Supporters say that match day traffic's not all that bad, even with 90% coming by car. So on Sunday, we took a quick drive round to check for ourselves. This is what a ~11,000 attendance looks like on the streets around the Kassam, with a permit parking only zone in operation.

Dear Sir, Could I please respond to a previous letter sent to the Oxford Mail by Mr Barry Gibbs about Oxford United's stadium move? 1. The Triangle is not just a wasteland. It is a well-managed sustainable business, on a site rich in biodiversity. This open space will become ever more valuable as over 2,000 dwellings will soon be built in the immediate vicinity. 2. Mr Gibbs states that the Triangle is Oxfordshire County Council’s preferred site for a stadium. But why does our County Council...
