Press Release: Council told to make good after no-notice felling of landmark tree
29 September 2021
The loss of the magnificent copper beech tree, which stood on Iffley Road at the junction with Howard Street, caused many to take to social media to express their dismay.
Angry residents in East Oxford are demanding a “full and transparent explanation” after Oxford City Council felled a mature tree that has been an Iffley Road landmark for over seventy-five years,
IFRA has issued a press release asking for the tree to be replaced.
18 June 2021
A survey of local river-users in Oxford prompted 1140 responses. The results show that the river is widely and frequently used throughout the year for swimming and other casual use (i.e. not supported by clubs). The results indicate that yet more people would swim and paddle in the river if it was clean, clear of obstacles and had easier access in and out of the water. Current users of the river appreciate the natural state of the river, so a full swimming-pool type development (as used to be the case in the past – with changing rooms and diving boards etc) is not needed or wanted by respondents. As a result of the survey, the local group think that a focus on renewing Longbridges as a safe swimming place while maintaining its natural state and supporting wildlife would enhance the river-use.
