We are grateful to Dr Judith Webb, an experienced independent ecological consultant, who has generously updated the reports that she wrote on the Triangle and the Woodland to the south. These reports show a staggering level of biodiversity and an important relationship between the two areas.

Dear Friends We've been campaigning against the stadium for nearly two years now. There have been major successes, for example the County Council's withdrawal of Stratfield Brake as an option. The Council has also recently told OUFC that the Oxford Road cannot be closed/disrupted. We believe this poses significant challenges for fan transport to/from the site.

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...
