Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

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

One member of the public also attended.

Matters Discussed

Parish Council Election

There are five seats available on Oxhill Parish Council.  Should more than five nominations be received by Stratford District Council then an election will take place on 7th May.  Nomination papers can be obtained from me, or SDC, and these are to be completed from Monday 23rd March to 16.00 hr on Thursday 9th April 2015.  All nomination papers have to be hand-delivered to the Returning Officer’s office at Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford for checking during the above timetable.  My telephone is 680441.


No one has come forward to operate community radar equipment.  Seven volunteers are required and training will be given for this.  Please let me know if you are interested.


Grants towards mowing the churchyard and Village Hall land were paid at £600 and £200 respectively.  Payment for printing the Oxhill News for the year April 2014 to March 2015 inclusive at £764 was also paid.


Outline planning permission has been granted for one detached dwelling on land in Green Lane. The application for four detached dwellings at “Fithers Field” has gone to Appeal.

Litter Collection

It was brought to the attention of the meeting by Tom Heritage that grants can be obtained by the Parish Council for collecting litter within the parish.  More information will be obtained.

Potential and Actual Flooding

Severn Trent had been contacted re the Oxhill watercourse and water runoff from higher ground.  They have clarified the position and say that they only maintain foul sewers which discharge to the pumping station.  The watercourse is the legal responsibility of either the Environmental Agency if classed as a main river or the landowner (under riparian ownership).  Run off from fields and drainage off the highway is the responsibility of the County Authority.  County Councils will help with liaison with landowners and dealing with overland flows and may have legal powers to enforce.

Annual Parish Meeting

This is the village annual meeting and will be held on Tuesday 12th May at 7.30 p.m. prior to the Parish Council Meeting.  Please let me have any items you wish to place on the Agenda or just come along.

Date of Next Meeting

Tuesday 12th May 2015 at 8.00 pm in the Village Hall.
