Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 8th January 2013 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

The meeting, chaired by Grenville Moore, was attended by Parish Councillors Carol Taylor, Tom Heritage, David Hill and Brian Badger

Matters Discussed


Oxhill is now classed as a Service Village and pressure is being applied for more housing with builders already identifying plots for development.  As a result a Housing Needs Survey is being carried out and when the results of this are known a Public Meeting will be held to consult with the village.

Parish Council and village representatives attended a Planning Meeting where it was sought to remove the S106 Legal Agreement restriction to build on land by the church.  This item has now been passed to the Cabinet Meeting on 18th February.


Precept for the year 2013/2014.  Expenditure for the next financial year was discussed against balance sheet presented.  Established charges for mandatory insurance, audits, clerks expenses and new minute book were agreed.  The Oxhill News will continue to be supported at its present cost.  Grants towards insurance of equipment for the First Ambulance Responders will be paid and grants towards mowing the Village Hall ground and the churchyard will be considered.  A precept of £2400 was agreed by the meeting.


There are several items outstanding, i.e. cattle grid repair Nolands Road, state of road either side and through Honington, and LH Bend sign replacement, Tysoe Rd, which have not received attention for several months.  We are now asking for a dated plan when these repairs will be carried out.

Shipston Link Service

This bus service runs on a Wednesday, picking up outside the “Peacock at 0918 arriving in Shipston at 0934.  Returning from Shipston 1120 arriving back in Oxhill 1136.

Oak Tree at the top of Rouse Lane

WCC have asked to move this tree so that when it grows it will not foul overhead lines.  We have agreed for this to be carried out
