Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

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

Apologies were received from Brian Badger and Tom Heritage

Matters Discussed


The precept for the year 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012 was discussed.  Expenditure included:  statutory fees for insurance, annual audits and clerk’s expenses; grants towards mowing the church yard and village hall grass, also continued support for the Oxhill News and kit insurance for First Ambulance Responders.  A grant will be made to the Village Hall to upgrade kitchen hygiene and a sum of money in reserve for possible village celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year.  A precept of £2000 would be requested from Stratford District Council.


There is still a problem of parking by those attending functions at the Old Chapel.  On two occasions recently the local bus service has been unable to get through and we are concerned should emergency vehicles need to get along Main Street. We have spoken to the Police who have advised that should vehicles be parked obstructing the highway then registration numbers can be taken and/or notes can be left on windscreens.  In the meantime the owners of the Old Chapel will be asked to co-operate in solving this problem.


Permission has been granted to insert like for like replacement windows and door at Church Leaze Barn. 

No objection was raised for erection of loose box at Church Farm and no objection raised to fell laburnum tree at Merrilees.

Flood Warning Service

Up to date information is available by visiting the web site at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/flood, or by calling the 24 hour Floodline number 0845 988 1188.

Horton General Hospital – The Better Healthcare Programme is still ongoing at the Horton General Hospital.  All but one post has been filled for paediatrics and a new rota set in place for anaesthetics which address the concerns raised.


There are still a number of highway issues outstanding.  The problem of running water down Beech Road is taking time to resolve but in the meantime a request has been made for a grit bin to be made available for winter use.

Date of Next Meeting

Tuesday 8th March 2011 at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
