Dear [Councillor’s Name],

As a supporter of Oxford United and a resident of [Insert Division], I am writing to express my full support for the proposed development of the Oxford United Stadium in Kidlington.

Without this development, Oxford United could face homelessness by 2026. As a vital part of our community, it is imperative that the necessary steps are taken to secure the future of our beloved football club.

Therefore, I urge you, as a council, to sign the Heads of Terms and the lease option agreement. By doing so, you can facilitate the next stages of Oxford United securing a permanent home where it can thrive for generations to come.

Your support in this matter is crucial, and I encourage you to represent the interests of the community by backing the Oxford United Stadium development.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,

[Your Name]
