Last Friday, Midcounties Co-op launched a claim at Oxford County Court to get the squatters of the old VW garage on Iffley Road evicted. Protesters gathered outside the courthouse during the hearing as a plea to the co-op to let the squatters stay, at least until the wet and cold winter period is over. As the decision of the court order was adjourned, Midcounties Co-op conducted a health and safety evaluation of the site, before agreeing to allow the homeless squatters to remain in the property until April, when their lease ends.

Midcounties Co-op is currently undergoing negotiations on the terms of occupancy with the legal representatives of Iffley Open House.
