Peafowl Protection Petition – July 2021


This petition has been started following the death of the iconic and much-loved white peahen who tragically left behind an egg.  In the absence of it’s mother, the egg failed to produce a chick. The white peahen was hit on the road by a vehicle which failed to stop.

This followed the death of an equally loved terrier who having escaped from her garden was also hit my a car the previous week.

We the undersigned, there, request that Oxfordshire County Council investigates ways to protect the residents, wildlife and pets of Nuneham Courtenay from speeding traffic, particularly in view of the County’s infrastructure plans which, if carried out, are likely to cause a vast increase in traffic through this unique Georgian village.
