New Cherwell Local Plan
The new Draft Local Plan was published by Cherwell District Council in August 2012. Click here for more information. No new development is suggested for Hanwell village itself. The bad news for Hanwell is that once again there is a strong possibility of a large number of houses being built north of Hanwell Fields, bringing the town another step closer.
Artweeks at Hanwell Village Hall
A fantastic selection of Art will be on show for the 3rd Year at Hanwell Village Hall during Oxfordshire Artweeks from Saturday 18th until Monday 27th May. Doors open daily from 12pm until 6pm (8pm on Thursday).
You are also all welcome to the Private View on Saturday 18th May, between 11am and 1pm. Come and see some amazing art, and enjoy canapes and Buck's Fizz. Find out more and private view
Better Broadband for Hanwell
Oxfordshire County Council knows that faster and more reliable broadband is essential for people who live and work in the county. This is why they are investing £13.86 million into a project that will improve broadband across Oxfordshire.
As more and more people work from home and use the internet on a day to day basis, a faster and more reliable service is in the interest of everyone.
