Oxfordshire County Council Transport Plan

The Parish Council has submitted a detailed response to OCC's request for comment on their LPT5 consultation. The response has also been sent to our OCC Councillor, Mrs Anda Fitzgerald-O'Connor and to Mrs Yvonne Constance, OCC Cabinet Member for the Environment. The full text of our response can be seen here.

We have also liaised with our MP, David Johnston, together with most of the other parishes along the A420 to seek long term solutions to the traffic problems on the A420.

Public Access Defibrillator

The Parish Council and the Village Fete Committee have just acquired a Public Access Defibrillator with the aid of a grant from Scottish and Southern Electricity. This has been installed in Fyfield Church porch.

Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

There is a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme covering most of the Parish. Small areas are allocated to local coordinators who are in contact with their neighbours who are members of the scheme.

Watch members are regularly informed of potential issues via a cascading email. Groups of members will be represented by a local co-ordinator who will receive the email directly from the police and can then forward it within the group. Members without email would be given a printed copy.

If you are not currently a memebr and would like more information or to become a member, please contact the Clerk who will get your local coordinator to make contact.

Roadside Weeds and Silt

Despite our efforts to get the District Council to clear weeds and silt from the roadside gutters, they have steadfastly pleaded a lack of funds to do the job. It seems that the only way we can keep the village tidy is to do it ourselves. If those residents who are able can clear the gutter outside of their property then this would further enhance the visual appearance of the villages.

Notice Boards

The Clerk and one of the local Councillors hold keys to the notice boards. Details may be found on the boards. Providing there is space, non Parish Council notices can be displayed. Please contact one of the key holders to arrange access. Alternatively, email your notice to the Clerk. Notices should preferably be printed on A5 rather than A4. The Clerk can reduce your notice if required.
