Friday 12 January saw Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, host her second ‘New Residents’ Roadshow’ at Longford Park, Banbury.
With North Oxfordshire experiencing five times the national average of house building, Victoria was keen to meet those moving into her constituency and discuss any issues they have, particularly on the new developments. The second of her roadshows, hosted at Longford Park Primary School, took place on Friday evening, giving residents the chance to meet their MP and neighbours.
The event was well attended by people from across the development; key topics of conversation included street lighting, road safety, and community facilities. Cherwell District Council’s Community Development Partner, Rosie Phillips, also came along to offer her support.
After the roadshow, Victoria commented: “It was great to meet so many people of varying ages and welcome them to the area. I know there are a number of unresolved issues in Longford Park so it is helpful to chat to residents about their concerns or suggestions.
I look forward to taking my roadshow back to Bicester in March and then return to a new development in Banbury later on this year.”
