Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 14th November 2006 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

Apology received from David Hill.

Meeting chaired by Tom Heritage attended by Gwyneth Adams, Carl Taylor and Hugh Rowse.


Transfer of Hospital Services

A letter had been received from Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals stating that their aim is to provide high quality and safe services for all within the budgets given.  They hope to provide more diagnostic procedures and operations, and to develop services for older people at Horton Hospital.  They also hope to put further investment into the Emergency Dept. but face considerable difficulties in sustaining some of the other services on a 24-hour basis.  The impact of this affects their ability to provide in patient paediatric care, in patient gynaecology, out of hours surgery and trauma.  They propose a children’s day centre, a midwifery-led unit and to increase the number of day case gynaecology procedures and to carry out more planned surgery.

Coventry & Warwickshire Acute Services Review replied that their final report will be produced at the end of December.

A letter received from John Maples, M.P. informed us that following a meeting with the Chief Executive of Warwick Hospital, he was assured that apart from out of hours emergency surgery transferring to the University Hospital Coventry and some paediatric work, no further reduction of services would apply.  Warwick Hospital will remain a District General Hospital.  They do however have a funding deficit and various ways of tackling this are being discussed.


Appeal being made against decision to refuse single storey extension at Appletree Cottage.

Permission granted for a larger conservatory at Bark Booth

No objections were raised for extension at rear of The Old Church House

No objections were raised for extensions at Willow Brook

Proposal to licence Livery Yards

Under the new Animal Welfare Bill anyone who runs a Horse Livery Yard will require a licence.  A Livery Yard is a business of providing a range of facilities, supervision and service intended to care for a horse in return for reward or financial gain.

Possible Rural Cinema Scheme

Stratford District Council is considering the implications of implementing a rural cinema scheme.  We have asked the Village Hall Committee if this is something they would be interested in pursuing. Perhaps you would let us know if you have any views on such a scheme.
