Oxford city council planners have identified three potential housing development sites on Priory Road in Minchery Farm near Greater Leys, Upper Wolvercote and Court Place Farm in Old Marston. All three sites are currently occupied by allotments, which are rented out by the council to associations with long-term lease agreements valid till 2021. However, if chosen the sites could be used for housing as early as 2016. Allotment holders are digging in for a long protest against the council
