Within this section you will find information related to the Parish Council, both past and present together with the rules and guidelines that help it to function.
The Parish Council is run in an open and transparent manner and is keen to promote good communication. All are welcome and encouraged to come to one of the regular Parish Council meetings which are held in public, usually on the first Wednesday of each month from 7-9 pm in the Red Lion.
At the start there is a public participation slot where matters can be raised by members of the public. It maybe something that can be answered immediately but if it is of a significant nature it may need to be considered in greater detail and therefore added to the items for the next meeting. This is so as to ensure that the matter is publicised in advance and all interested parties know that it is a subject that has been raised. For those who cannot attend meetings then please feel free to contact us in writing.
Please bear in mind that we are a small council with limited powers and very limited resources. The Clerk is the only paid employee and the formal point of contact. All five councillors are volunteers who give up their time freely on behalf of the community and are happy to be approached with any issues. They will do their best to help, but no formal decisions can be made outside the regularly convened meetings.
The Parish notice board is located at the junction of Stoke Lyne Road and Bicester Road and has all the latest Parish Council meeting minutes and news. It also has a public area notice board on the right hand side which promotes local events and activities, so check it out regularly.
