COUNCILLORS have agreed to give away land in Carterton and Long Hanborough.

West Oxfordshire District Council’s cabinet yesterday voted to transfer land at Blackthorn Green in Shilton Park, Carterton, to Carterton Town Council.

It will allow continued use of the land as a play area and public open space.

Long Hanborough Methodist Church has also taken over a small plot next to the site so it can build a side extension.
