Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 9th November 2010 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

An apology was received from Carol Taylor.  All other Councillors were present.

Matters Discussed

Parking

Parking on the bend in front of the Peacock pub has improved.  However there is still a problem when the Old Chapel is in use.  We have asked if those attending functions at the Old Chapel can be requested to park more sensibly.

Planning

Permission has been granted for the following Applications

Replacement garage at Greenfields

Change of land use to equine & stables at Hogwood Farm

Change of land use for garden and agricultural supplies at Windmill Farm. 

To fell 3 willows at The Hollies.

Erection of single storey extension, closure of vehicular access and various fenestration alterations to convert 2 dwellings into 1 (Oxhill House and Little Nut Cottage)

Application to insert like for like replacement windows at Church Leaze Barn was returned with no objection.

Erection of barn for storage of straw at Church Farm did not require planning.

An application was refused for change of land use to form a domestic tennis court at Whatcote Park.

Winter Gritting

The same routes as last year will be gritted by Warwickshire County Council.  This does not include the road to Kineton from the A422.  See notice board.

The Government Snow Code, issued at the end of October, states:
There is no law stopping you from clearing snow and ice on the pavement outside your property, pathways to your property or public space.  If an accident did happen, itís highly unlikely that you would be sued as long as you: 1) are careful, 2) use common sense to make sure that you donít make the pavement or pathway clearly more dangerous than before.  People using areas affected by snow and ice also have responsibility to be careful themselves.

Horton General Hospital Ė Better Healthcare Programme

Following the decision to implement the new staffing arrangements at the Horton, the Board agreed that over the next 12 months the Trust will develop a new vision for services.  The aim is to make sure fewer patients from Banbury and the surrounding areas need to go to Oxford for care and treatment.

Police Stations

Representation is being made to emphasise the need to keep our local police station at Shipston open, and to stress its value to the community.

From 6th December Stratford police station is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Sunday with a help point phone located outside the station outside these hours.

DATE OF NEXT MEETING

Tuesday 11th January 2011 at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall.

Angela Kean, Clerk
