Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 21st July 2009 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

All Councillors were present.

Matters Discussed

Community Supported Agricultural Scheme

Graham Collier from Tysoe came along to explain about the above scheme.  This scheme offers various ways of collectively growing vegetables or keeping animals for the benefit of all those involved.  Lottery money is available to get such schemes started and Graham is anxious to know of anyone interested.  His telephone number is 680127.


A grant of £278.30 was paid to the Village Hall Committee towards the cost of event tables.  £30 was paid for completion of the Internal Audit.

Road Safety

Warwickshire County Council is investigating if minor improvement measures to the A422 near Hogwood Farm would be of benefit and have asked Engineers to undertake further assessment of the junction.


Planning applications had been received from Gilks Cottage to fell a Eucalyptus tree and to extend existing agricultural building at Field Forge Farm.  Both applications were returned with no objection.

Obstruction of Footpaths

Patrons of the “Peacock” are asked to please use the car park provided and not park their vehicles on the pedestrian footpath across from the pub.

The Peacock has also been asked to make sure the tables at the front of the pub don’t obstruct use of the footpath.


Three items were highlighted: The first house in Barn Row had been flooded following a heavy rain storm.  The highways to be notified to check drains are cleared and if the height of the kerb setts added to the problem. Loose chippings washed onto the road below Church Farm entrance are causing a hazard to road users. The roadside edge falls away significantly along some sections of Green Lane and also across from the lay-by presenting a danger to cyclists, horses and vehicles particularly when passing.

NHS Oxfordshire

Additional doctors have been recruited to the Horton General Paediatric department. This is good news and will relieve some of the pressures staff have been coping with.  Ideas for improvement have been submitted and 13 have been selected as having the most potential to help. These fall into five distinct themes, collaboration, integration, service strategy and development, staffing and training, academia and research.  Work is on going to implement these ideas.

Date of Next Meeting
