Lovell Planning Policy Statement
West Oxfordshire District Council's (WODC) Local Plan 1997 contained a Planning Policy Statement for Minster Lovell which in more recent Local Plans, was not included.
Minster Lovell Parish Council wish to protect the Village from unwanted, large-scale development and has adopted a new Minster Lovell Planning Policy Statement. It is anticipated this will provide some protection when WODC consider new planning applications and also provide guidance in the event of planning applications being approved.

IT IS A SCAM!
Communication from Thames Valley Police
The young lads who go door to door, selling
Often they have some form of ID which they
display, but this is bogus. They may also hand over a card
saying they are deaf / dumb / just out of prison / in the
process of being reformed and working towards a better life.
The bag of household products is supplied by
the man who employs them. We did have a man who lived in
the Thames Valley area, who organised the local lads.
Traditionally they came from Nottingham hence the name, but
now, they are recruited from anywhere.
How does it work?
The lads are supplied with the full bag and
charged a minimal sum for the contents it used to be
£35. They can keep whatever they make, above this amount.
Usually they are deposited in an area from a
Transit Van and given a list of streets to work. An hour
or so later they are picked up and dropped off, in another
location. They often work from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
They will knock on a door, offering cleaning
items, they know to be rubbish, which the householder also knows
to be rubbish. That is part of the scam. Many people
will purchase items pay them something, just to go away.
The price for whatever has been purchased
usually comes to a note usually £10. The householder
disappears to get this this is when the scam begins when
the note is handed over, the lad examines the condition and how
long it took the person to get it. If it is crumpled, they
accept it and move on. If it is crisp flat and new
they are much more interested and may engage the person in more
conversation, to obtain details about them. As they leave
they will smell the note. If it is slightly musty this
is an indication that there is more in the property. Those
addresses are noted. The addresses of elderly / vulnerable
/ gullible people are all noted.
These are handed to the employer and there is a
small amount of cash handed over for each one
These addresses are then sold in prisons and
pubs. If there is a later break-in, the employer expects a
further cut of the proceeds.
These lists are purchased by all sorts of
people including tarmaccers, tree workers, roofers, dodgy
Once on a list, your address could be sold on
and on. Hence the repeat nature of these persistent
In almost every case of a stop check the
lads have long strings of convictions, for burglary and
violence. They use the skills learnt during their criminal
activity to identify possible targets.
N.B. If any salesperson comes to your
door, wed suggest you ask to see their Pedlars
certificate - these are only issued to individuals under
very strict conditions.

your area, please call us immediately on 101 with a
description of them & any associated vehicle they may be
