MATTERS DISCUSSED

Planning

Permission had been granted for quarantine block at Church Farm

An Appeal had been dismissed at Vine House Farm to change use from agricultural to light industrial.

Finance

A cheque for 1151 would be sent to the Village Hall Committee for the purchase of new tables. VAT would be reclaimed on this item.  A cheque for 600 was also agreed towards mowing the churchyard.

The precept for the year ending 31 March 2007 was discussed.  It was agreed to set the same precept as last year at 2600.  This sum to cover the cost of May 2006 Parish elections, as required by Stratford District Council; grants towards mowing the churchyard and the village hall land; funding for the Oxhill News and Village Hall.  Administrative costs of insurance, clerks expenses, internal and external audits, were also covered.

Street Signs

Whatcote Road sign was missing at the top of Green Lane.  A new sign would be requested.

Good Neighbour Watch

In a small community such as Oxhill we do a very good job of keeping an eye on neighbours especially those who need help.  Several people in the village live on their own and as far as the Parish Council is aware receive help and friendly contact, but if anyone requires any further help please let us know.

Council for Voluntary Service Village Liaison Officer Project

Doug Nethercleft is our Village VLO.  This project has been set up to give local help for people in rural Stratford and Warwick districts.  We have invited Doug to come along to a Parish Council Meeting to give us an insight into his work.

Winter Gritting

A map of the areas gritted by the Council is displayed on the Notice Board.

Warwickshire County Council Community Links
