Parish Action Plan
will have read, the Action Plan was addressed by the Parish Council at the
last meeting. There are eight ‘value statements’ that require action to be
taken and some require more input than the parish council can achieve alone.
Support for the elderly – needs the formation of a working group. We
Access a range of activities for young people – again needs the
formation of a working group and again volunteers needed.
one working group could address both the above? Just a suggestion.
retain close connection with the countryside – OWLS has already
undertaken and will continue to support this criteria. If you would
like to join OWLS, please contact me.
Flooding – the Parish Council will be contacting Severn Trent Water to
start with and will liaise with affected residents.
Development/Planning in Oxhill – now we have a Parish Plan, which the
Parish Council can use to support planning issues.
Oxhill residents want people to behave responsibly – there are several
points to be addressed here and as you can see from the Parish Council
minutes, these were discussed in some detail.
a) Speeding – we do require seven volunteers to train in the use of
a community camera. Mick Shepherd will co-ordinate this, but
initially application forms can be obtained from Angela Kean –
b) Parking – this is quite a difficult one in a small village.
While it is accepted that when there is a function in the Old
Chapel, cars will have to park partly on the pavement, we have had
complaints that some vehicles have been parking fully on the
pavement by the telephone box, obstructing visibility, which is
another matter. Persistent offenders will have their vehicle
photographed and sent to the Police. It really is just a matter of
being considerate and ‘think before you park’.
c) Dog fouling – again think of YOUR responsibility. Part of the
problem seems to be that occasionally younger residents of the
village, when walking the family dog, ignore the fact that their dog
has just fouled the pavement. Please make sure your children take
the ‘poo bags’ with them.
Broadband – Mike Collins is monitoring this one for us at the moment.
Oxhill residents should be well informed – We have the Oxhill News and
two notice boards, so it is difficult to see what more we can do. I
think those of us on the Parish Council, village hall committee and PCC
just need to look at how if possible we can give out more information –
perhaps an information booklet to every house or a village website. Do
we have a volunteer to look at putting something like this together?
