Wootton Parish Council is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We, as a Parish Council, on behalf of all the residents of the Wootton Parish, wish to express our thanks and gratitude to Her Majesty for her reign over more than 70 years and our thoughts are with the Royal Family. A book of condolence will be opened up for residents within the Parish to leave their comments in due course.

We welcome thoughts on how we can commemorate and celebrate her reign and life within the Parish.

Annual Governance Review – Save our Parish

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.
