- Kidlington tourist mystery solved
- Thames locks to close for repairs
The site owner of Didcot Power Station is waiting for a new contractor after a demolition company was axed last month.
Local Green Party leader David Williams today put forward a successful motion to Oxfordshire County Council to waive the rents of children's centres if they face closure.
He said the consequences would be "horrendous" if the centres, run by community groups and charities, shut down.
Labour councillor Gill Sanders added: "Not having to pay rental charges will be a huge benefit to very many groups and will give them the additional time to find alternative financial support."
But Conservative Yvonne Constance abstained and said it was a "very difficult amendment to support" because it was an "open-ended commitment to spend".

Molly Rose delivered 486 aircraft, including 273 Spitfires, after joining the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) in 1942.
About 170 women were part of the ATA, which transported aircraft from factories to the RAF.
Ms Rose died last month while on vacation in Scotland, aged 95. Her service was held in Bampton.

Funding cuts mean more than half of the centres are set to shut by March 2017 unless they are taken over by community groups or charities.
But charges for using council buildings have been described as a "stumbling block" for saving the centres.
Now the county council has approved a motion to scrap charges for groups struggling to pay.
Lord Heseltine says claims that he strangled his mother's dog are a "terrible misrepresentation of what happened".
Speaking to the PM programme, the former deputy prime minister said the dog, called Kim, turned on him when he checked a problem it had with its paw.
He had grabbed the choker chain around the dog's neck and it had gone limp and returned to normal. A vet had put down the dog the next day because the family feared it was dangerous.

He told Tatler magazine he had grabbed the dog, Kim, by his "choker chain - and pulled it tight" until "he went limp", after the pet had had "some kind of mental breakdown".
It is not clear if the animal died then or was put down later because of its continuing aggressive behaviour.

Mr Rose said: "Very often they would be getting into a particular aircraft for the first time.
"She did love it, there is no doubt, and she did it very well, she only crash-landed once.
"There was engine failure, she was up in Shropshire... went into a bit of a spin... and there was some poor farmer who was ploughing the field who got a mighty shock."
