Council accused of ‘land grab’ by next-door parish

PLANS to extend the boundary of Watlington parish to include a sports field and several houses have been branded a “land grab” by a neighbouring council.

Pyrton Parish Council produced a poster saying: “Pyrton is under threat! Learn how South Oxfordshire District Council and Watlington Parish Council ‘land grabs’ potentially threaten the very existence of our parish.”

Watlington Parish Council has put forward three proposals to:

– Move the sports field from Pyrton to Watlington parish.

– Transfer four houses in Christmas Common from Pishill and Stonor parish to Watlington.
