Consideration in the Community. The Parish Council continues to receive complaints by residents about speeding in the village, blocking pavements by parked cars, dog waste and bonfires. We can all help by encouraging a climate of consideration for our neighbours as we go about our daily lives. It is illegal to block pavements by parking on them as this makes it difficult and often dangerous for disabled people and people with young children. Whilst it is not illegal to burn garden waste this should be kept within reasonable levels and should not cause a nuisance to neighbours or endanger traffic. More detailed guidance from the Vale of White Horse DC Environmental Health Officer will be published on this website.

VWHDC Recycling note.  The Vale of White Horse District Council has informed us that items for recycling in the green bins must be loose or in a transparent bag. If the green bin contains black or coloured bags it will not be emptied.

Parking by the One-Stop on Besselsleigh Road. We’ve received several complaints about parking. Read more at this link: Parking on the pavement by the One-Stop.
