nPower could raise valuable charity cash

Oxford Mail: . .

I am writing concerning the publicity over RWE nPower’s decision to blow up the Didcot Power Station cooling towers in the dark, thus depriving the community at large an opportunity to view this long-awaited spectacle.

I have a suggestion which I hope RWE nPower gives serious consideration to before they blow up the main chimney.

That a draw/raffle is held, say £1 a ticket. The winning ticket holders push the detonator button and all proceeds go to local charities.

This practice was widely used in the days of the old central electricity generating board, at the end of a power station’s life and not only created valuable community involvement but also raised valued donations for local charities.

How about it RWE nPower?

The Strategic Housing Market Assessment threatens us with a massive increase in housing. South Oxfordshire District Council’s consultation paper (Local Plan 2031 – Issues and Scope) swallows this with hardly a murmur and consults us on where all the new houses should be build. Yet, amazingly to many of us, neither the SHMA nor SODC take into account underlying issues which will crucially affect how much we can absorb.

The latest consultation on the Northern Gateway Area Action Plan in North Oxford has started badly, with local politicians making statements which show they are unaware that the size for the proposed development is now significant larger than the Local Plan allocation.

What has the Oxford motorist done to deserve the shambolic and chaotic system that we have at the moment?
