Parish Council

The Council exists to deal with environmental, infrastructural, financial and community matters on behalf of the Parish. It may be that, whether new to the village or not, some families may be unaware of the current membership of the Council. In alphabetical order:

Gwyneth Adams. Brian Emmerson. Stephen Hackett. Tom Heritage. David Hill. 

The Parish Clerk is Angela Kean.

The Council, amongst other things, allocates taxpayers money to such things as the Oxhill News, the Village Hall, Churchyard mowing etc., and obtains its budget via a precept on the Council Tax. The precept bid is determined following representation by interested parties or by statutory requirements. Councillors are unpaid, and are apolitical as far as Parish matters are concerned.

The Council is closely involved with Planning matters, and has successfully represented the views of residents by influencing the decisions of the District Council planning system on many occasions over many decades. Your Parish Council should be your first point of reference; if you refer to County or District Councils as a first action, it can, and on certain occasions has, resulted in delay or in an otherwise unsatisfactory outcome.

In the national structures of local government, the Parish Council is not a subordinated organisation; indeed it is the closest government organisation to you and thereby the most immediately relevant. It differs from other organisations inasmuch as it exists primarily to serve rather than to govern.
