Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 16th September 2014 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

The meeting, chaired by Grenville Moore, was attended by Parish Councillors David Hill, Tom Heritage and Brian Badger. Two members of the village also attended.   Apology received from Carol Taylor.

Matters Discussed


Repair work had been carried out on the road from Whitehill to the A422. This section of road will be surface dressed next year.  The Shipston Road from Whatcote to Honington is down for work to be done but we need to pursue this.  A large pot hole at the end of the drive to the Peacock needs filling in and the path leading from there is sinking and splitting and needs attention. 


Retrospective planning permission has been granted at “The Old Church House” for change of use from residential annexe to 1 bedroom cottage.

The following planning applications have been returned with no objection; 1) 1 The Leys – demolition of existing side extension and erection of 2 storey side extension; 2) 3 Peacock Cottages – proposed single storey rear and 2 storey side extension; 3) Tree coppice work at The Hollies. 

Application from Whitehill Cottage for conversation of existing barns to form 3 residential units and demolition of a modern frame building to erect a car port was supported to provide more affordable homes. Land on the north side of Green Lane was supported for the erection of 3 detached dwellings to provide starter/finisher homes in line with our requirement for linear infilling. Demolition of existing bungalow and garage and construction of replacement dwelling and garage at Churchview (formally Cornerways) was also supported.

Planning Application submitted from Church Farm for Managers dwelling, garage drive/turning area was not supported in line with previous application on the need for 3 managers to be on site.

Planning application for one cottage style dwelling on Land off Green Lane had been withdrawn.

Objections had been made against the Leys Field development with strong opposition from the village.

Following small changes to the Parish Plan it will be presented to Cabinet on the 7th October and recommended for approval.  The Parish Council endorsed the final Plan.

Parish Councillors will be attending the training event to help in the role of consultee in the planning process at Shipston in November.

A Site Allocation Plan is being drawn up by Stratford District Council and asks which areas of land can be made available for development. Chairman to reply after consultation.


External audit for the year ended 31 March 2014 had been completed satisfactorily with no fee payable.
