Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 12th January 2010 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

Apologies were received from Grenville Moore.  All others Councillors were present.

Matters Discussed


Application for single storey extension at Clermont was returned with no objection.


Precept Year 2010/201

Expenditure for this period was discussed.  Established charges (insurance, internal & external audits, clerk’s expenses), grants towards mowing the churchyard and the grass by the Village Hall, were taken into account.  Funding of the Oxhill News, First Ambulance Responder insurance for medical kit, and request from the Village Hall for provision of kitchen shelving and storage was also included.  This year is the Parish Council Elections and the cost of such an election for Oxhill would be £600, £100 if uncontested.  This election expense has to be available for payment, if necessary.  Therefore a precept of £2500 was agreed, which is in line with last year.

The Village Hall was granted £200 towards the cost of mowing during the 2009 season, and this was paid.

Help those less able

We should all be aware of any less able members of the village who need our help, especially in bad weather when getting about is difficult.  Just to make contact can be very reassuring.  Thank you to Mike and Barbara Shepard who did many circuits of the village checking if everyone was ok.

Re-cycling scheme

Additional items that we can now be put in our Blue Lid bins include:

Clean Aluminium Foil
Clean yoghurt pots and margarine tubs
Clean plastic food containers.

NOT cling film or carrier bags.


With our changing climate and more flooding occurring, the Highways Department will be asked if they can provide better road drainage along Main Street to take care of excess water running off higher ground and causing flooding down side lanes.

Date of Next Meeting

Tuesday 9th March 2010 at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
