Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 8th March 2011 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

Apologies were received from Grenville Moore

Matters Discussed


A grant of £600 was paid towards mowing the churchyard and a grant of £200 paid towards mowing the grass by the Village Hall for last season.  £342.27 was paid for production of the Oxhill News and £205.11 paid towards the cost of towel dispensers etc for kitchen and toilets at the Village Hall.  £100 was paid towards kit insurance for First Ambulance Responders.


Planning permission had been granted for erection of loose box at Church Farm and to fell a laburnum tree at Merrilees.  Planning notification for creation of new vehicular access at “Eudon” was returned with no objection.


To alleviate the problem of water running down Beech Road when it is icy, the Parish Council have agreed to purchase a grit bin to be placed by the beech tree down this road.  Warwickshire County Council has agreed to keep this topped up with salt grit in the winter months.

The Highways Dept has been dealing with the encroachment of the verge at “Stonecroft” and have arrived at the following:  a) the yew bushes have been removed; b) the rope between the posts has been removed; c) after advice from the Forestry Dept the trees, although not native to this area, can remain as they are of a type that should not cause any problems to the highways in the future; d) the stone gateway was in place for some time prior to the present owners; e) with regard to the wooden posts it was pointed out that there are many objects placed within the highway verges which could be deemed as or more hazardous than the posts at this location.  Although the Parish Councillors were not in agreement with all of the above, the majority vote was to go along with the course of action of W.C.C.


A notice will be place on the Notice Board regarding the referendum on the voting system for United Kingdom parliamentary elections.  This will take place on Thursday 5th May.
