Planning Application for The North Arms It was a very well attended meeting in the village hall (Tuesday evening). There was very wide support for the refurbishment and reopening of the North Arms, Dr Baldwin on behalf of the College made a definite promise that it will be operated as a pub as well as a restaurant and that bar snacks will be available in the bar. The operator is likely to be a couple who run two pubs in the Newbury area. The pub websites are http://thecastlenewbury.com/ https://www.theredhousepub.com/ They look to be good pubs! There were a few detail worries expressed. 1. The extract system from the kitchen could cause noise and odour problems for the houses adjacent to the kitchen. 2. The conversion of the barn to a function room with a potential of 30 plus occupants, This raises concerns of late night noise, music etc.. This unit would will raise the number of covers in the pub to perhaps 80 an increase of about 4 times of the previous capacity. Is this out of scale with a village centre pub? 3. The pub has parking for perhaps 10 cars which after staff parking will leave little room for the number of customers. The College has said that the College car park may be used by diners, lets hope they do. We don’t want villagers in Church St. and Main St having increased difficulty in parking. The Parish Council have promised to raise these points with Cherwell. They should be easily resolved with good will on all sides and then at last we can have our pub back!

The White Horse Spoke to the new owner. It will be reopened as a pub . He is still considering what it will offer and investigating the significant repairs that he thinks necessary. He is unable to give any forecast as to when it will be open but it will be as soon as possible.
