Invitation to Join the Partnership

A spin-off of the pedestrianisation ‘spat’ is that the Civic Society has been invited to join the Banbury Town Centre Partnership. Originally set up by Cherwell District Council and now administered by the Town Council, the Partnership’s focus is on trade rather than built heritage, comprising representatives from CDC, the Town Council, Chamber of Commerce, Castle Quay, Hughmark International, Thames Valley Police and, now, the Civic Society. Being represented on the Partnership will hopefully mean that we are more fully kept in the loop on important schemes such as pedestrianisation. Greater co-operation between all organisations in Banbury can only be to the benefit of all, and the BCS is pleased to join the Partnership.
