Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 13th July 2004 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

Apologies received from Stephen Hackett.  All other Councillors were present.

Matters Discussed


-     Permission had been granted for new vehicular access at Oxhill House.

The Stratford District Local Plan is to be replaced by a Local Development Framework consisting of a set of documents which can be reviewed as situations change without the need to review the whole plan.  This is to be in place by March 2007. The first phase of this is the “Statement of Community Involvement”.  A leaflet and questionnaire are available on the District Council website if you wish to have your say on the consultancy process.


The External Audit fee of £58.75 was paid.

5 year renewal for technology access to run the Oxhill website was agreed at £78.98.

Winter Maintenance

Gritting routes have been published for this winter.  A copy is posted on the Notice Board and Councillors also have copies. 

Tree Warden Scheme

A Tree Warden Scheme is being set up for Stratford District.  This is a volunteer appointed by the Parish or Town Council to have an overview of tree related matters in the area.  If you are interested in becoming a Tree Warden a meeting is to be held on Thursday 2nd December 2004 at 7.30 p.m. at Stratford District Council Offices, Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford.  Register your interest by contacting Martin Peel, Environmental Maintenance Manager or obtain a registration form from myself.

Postal Service

This service has deteriorated since new scheduling came into effect with mail only arriving at mid-day or mid afternoon, and sometimes not at all.  Jackie Hatton is still continuing to give a good service but cannot be in two places at once.  A letter would be sent to the Royal Mail expressing our dissatisfaction and their need to give a better service. 

Office of Fair Trading – Doorstep Selling

An information campaign is running to highlight doorstep selling.  The Office of Fair Trading give the following 3 things to remember:

Check the seller’s identity.

Take control – you ask the questions

Don’t sign on the spot – shop around, get advice

Organisations such as the Trading Standards and Citizens Advice Bureau are there to help you about your consumer rights.

Policing – Stratford District

A new policing structure for Stratford District has been introduced to make better use of the manpower available.  A Reactive Team will primarily respond to immediate response calls.  A Crime Team will be responsible for investigating serious crime and providing support to the newly formed Community Policing Teams who in turn are the local problem solving teams.  The final team is a Beat Support Unit giving support across the district covering violence, burglary, drugs, as well as anti-social behaviour.  Shipston Area Team: Manager – Police Sergeant Colin Hughes, Police Constables – Dale Packer, Nicki Smith and Derek Pope.  All can be contacted on 01789 414111.

Date of next meeting

Tuesday 11th January 2005 at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall .

Angela Kean, Clerk
