Thank you to all our supporters to date, and everyone who emailed their concerns directly to Councillors. Our efforts made a difference! Councillors felt unable to follow Officers’ recommendation to sell the land to Oxford United and instead agreed that the land should only be leased, subject to conditions being met. These include that the club will achieve planning permission, and provide a full set of clear and detailed proposals. This is great news: it means that now both Stratfield Brake and the Triangle remain in public ownership. It was clear from yesterday’s Cabinet meeting that Councillors were uneasy about selling off the Triangle given so many concerns raised.
We are still waiting for Cabinet’s decision to be published before planning our next steps. Rest assured that our campaign is far from over! We remain resolute in our belief that Triangle must be protected from unacceptable development and committed to challenging it. We will be sharing a more detailed update to our mail list shortly – please sign up here, to join our campaign and receive updates.
