A field of poppies brightens up the route for people travelling the corner between Radley Road and Twelve Acre Drive.
The field escaped being built upon when outline planning permission for 55 dwellings was refused in 2013. Those were the days when a green belt could protect fields from being built upon. Reasons for refusal included:
- Inappropriate development in the Oxford Green Belt.
- Visually harmful development without a distinctive sense of place.
- Harmful impact on existing services and social infrastructure without enough compensating financial contributions.
