At present, the Vale of White Horse District Council is carrying out a community governance review to ensure that parishes continue to properly represent the local area and their residents. The Wootton Parish Council has been informed by the Vale that Sunningwell Parish Council has requested that the part of Boars Hill which is in our parish be transferred to their control. Wootton Parish Council has been asked to respond to this request by the end of April, which makes it impossible to place a notice in the WADS News Magazine informing residents of the proposal.
Wootton Parish Council believes that no changes should be made to the present boundaries of the parish on the grounds the parish as presently constituted works well for the benefit of all the residents. Your Council is particularly concerned that the removal of Boars Hill from the parish would necessarily lead to a sizeable reduction in the money we receive each year and spend within the community. We’d love to be more inclusive within the parish and have everyone working towards the common good.
The Council is very keen to hear what residents of the parish think of Sunningwell’s request so that we can have some sense of the community’s position informing our response. You need to say no more than whether you are for or against the proposal and provide your address but you’re welcome to respond with more details.
Please could replies be sent as soon as possible to the parish clerk, Wendy Quigley: email@example.com or 32, Lamborough Hill, Wootton, OX13 6BZ. PS.
Alternatively, you can complete the Questionnaire below and/or complete the response on this page: https://survey.southandvale.gov.uk/s/CommunityGovernanceReviewsVale_Feedback
