The Parish Council is the first level of local government and the closest to the community it serves. Blewbury Parish Council serves the Parish of Blewbury in the Vale of White Horse District Council.
Apart from in August when there isn’t a meeting, members of the Parish Council meet once a month to discuss, report, monitor and, most importantly, make decisions on matters concerning the villages of Blewbury. Minutes are produced afterwards and published once approved at the next Parish Council Meeting. These meetings are usually held at 7.30 pm in the Vale Room on the second Wednesday of the month. Among councillors’ responsibilities are:
In Oxfordshire all the domestic waste that used to go into landfill now is taken to the Ardley facility where it is turned into electricity. The construction and operation of such plants is controversial, so two of your Parish Councillors went to see it for themselves.
The Blewbury Village CIC will retain overall responsibility for the Clubhouse but as of 1st June 2018 the day to day operational management will be carried out by David Flynn and Mike Evans.
