Weston-on-the-Green seeks new Parish Councillors

The Parish Council is looking for two new councillors. This is a great opportunity to get involved and help us make the right decisions for the Parish and have some fun at the same time. It is not all hard work and minutes, even though that makes up the core of the responsibilities. We also embrace a glass of wine at the Annual meeting, regularly provide coffee and biscuits at the PC meetings (thanks to Diane's generosity) and have a few laughs doing some of the more practical jobs.

We are all committed to ensuring Weston has a bright future and to fend off threats where they arise.

If you are interested to stand, please come and talk to one of us - we are also keen to get some of the younger or newer residents involved. The Council should have broad representation from the village.

You can email the Clerk (clerk@westononthegreen-pc.gov.uk), the Chair (dianebohm@gmail.com) or the Vice-Chair (Sdaenke@gmail.com) or come along and talk to us at the next Parish Council meeting on 3rd July, 7.30pm in the village hall.

Oxfordshire Plan 2050

The Oxfordshire Plan 2050 is one of the commitments made by the six Oxfordshire authorities as part of the £215m Housing & Growth Deal, which will help deliver greatly needed new homes, including affordable and social housing, and infrastructure to the county.

The Plan will ask residents about what is important to them for the future. It will then examine the different levels of aspiration in order to achieve some, lots or all of these things, and the housing and infrastructure needed for each scenario.

By having all six authorities involved, the Plan will be able to collectively consider the needs of the county and align its strategies so that future housing and infrastructure is more joined up.

The Plan will not allocate sites for housing or employment. Instead, it will identify key areas for sustainable growth with associated housing / employment numbers. Districts will then use this to produce future Local Plans which will provide a detailed view of how housing and infrastructure will be delivered.

Keeping roads and paths clear in cold weather

As the eagle eyed residents of the village will have now noticed, there is a new salt bin at the end of Westlands Avenue. This brings our total of salt bins in the village to three.

They have been placed at key locations where there is a volume of traffic that intersects at a busy junction, often with poor visibility.

The bins are there for residents to use to make the roads and pathways near their homes clear of snow and ice. Please use them!

If you feel your salt bin needs refilling, please contact the Clerk at clerk@westononthegreen-pc.gov.uk
