Recreation And Access To Green Space in Nethercote

As well as Banbury Lane itself, there are numerous public footpaths running through Nethercote, all regularly enjoyed by both residents, dog walkers and hikers alike. It is also in walking distance of nearby residential estates in Banbury, Overthorpe and Middleton Cheney and many people come to enjoy the scenery and quiet. We call upon these people to please support our campaign to Keep Nethercote Rural

If you enjoy the area and would like it to stay rural, please contact your local councillors and MP to let them know your views and ask that these are represented to both Cherwell DC and West Northants Council

A team at Exeter have given our green spaces a £25bn welfare value. Here’s their interactive mapping tool: https://leep.exeter.ac.uk/orval/

ORVal’s primary purpose is to provide information that might be useful to government, businesses and communities in understanding the benefits that are derived from accessible greenspace in England and Wales.

Approx 20,000 visits per year are estimated for #Nethercote footpaths
