Parish Notices – Notes, Updates, and Events in Wootton Parish Council Near Abingdon

Parish Council Meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of the month. The agenda is available from the Wednesday prior to the meeting by following this link: agenda.

Review of the Parish Boundary.

At present, the Vale of White Horse District Council is carrying out a community governance review.

Wootton Parish Council has been informed by the Vale that Sunningwell Parish Council has requested that our parish is broken up and Boars Hill be transferred to their control.

We believe Boars Hill is an integral part of the parish and households use many of our parish facilities.

The Council is very keen to hear what the residents of the parish think.

Residents can respond in 3 ways.

1. The Vale’s questionnaire:

There are two part; one about the adoption of Boars Hill by Sunningwell Parish Council and one about the renaming of Wootton Parish to Wootton and Boars Hill Parish.

2. Emailing the parish clerk, Wendy Quigley:

3. WPC’s questionnaire:

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.

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.
