Parish Planning Project

The Steering Group behind the project had two meetings during March and at the time of going to press was due to meet again on 15th April to progress a number of initiatives. 

These include carrying out a village survey involving all households (to gather views on Oxhill, its facilities, local services, what people like about Oxhill, areas for improvement etc), a timetable to produce the parish plan document which will aim to guide `local decision makers` on the future development of the parish, and a village design statement which will describe the physical look of the parish and especially its housing and building designs.

At the second of our March meetings we heard from the parish clerk for Brailes about the production of its own parish plan and village survey. We intend to adopt some of the good practices from Brailes.

Meanwhile, Oxhill Parish Council has formally recognised the steering group, and we continue our contacts with the district council to whom we have reinforced our view that the parish does not meet the criteria required to be considered as a Local Service Village. As you will know, this was highlighted in the February edition of Oxhill News and led to the public meeting.

The group is particularly keen to hear from our young people, as part of the survey and the creation of the plan, and is discussing how best to involve younger residents. 

As we said last time, this is very much about YOUR village. The views of everyone living in the parish are very important to us and we therefore need to hear from you throughout the course of the project.

The members of the steering group are:

Sue Hunt (Steering Group Co-ordinator), Ann Hale, Mike Collins, Carol Taylor (Parish Council representative), Peter Rivers-Fletcher, Geoff Stewart, Tony Wyatt, Alan Hedley, Stuart Whittaker, Adrian Marklew, Peter Britton, Ed Bracher and Paul Sayer.

Please feel free to contact the group if you have any views on the project via email at parish.planning@oxhill.org.uk or to Sue Hunt, Eudon, Whatcote Road.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
