Parish Council Monthly News

The Parish Council met on August 7th with 7 Parish Councillors, Matthew Barber Vale of White Horse District Council Councillor, Mike Fox-Davies Oxfordshire Council Councillor and a large number of members of the public being present.

As you will be aware by now the VWHDC (VWHDC) planning committee refused the application by Network Rail for consent to demolish Steventon Grad II listed Railway Bridge.  Thank you for all the continued support given to the Parish Council over the past 5 years. Network Rail has indicated that they will appeal against the decision in September. As details emerge we will keep you informed.

The VWHDC is exploring whether to take over on-street parking enforcement in the district.

The council is contacting Oxfordshire County Council (the highways authority), which is responsible for formally applying for powers and then delegating civil parking enforcement responsibilities, to find out whether this could be possible.

This change could be beneficial for Steventon, especially on the High Street.

There are still ongoing concerns from residents on both the Linden Homes and Miller Homes developments concerning the state of the roads, open spaces and their prospective management companies. The more residents who write to the VWHDC enforcement team the quicker these issues will be resolved. The relevant enforcement officers are;
Linden Homes:  heather.rowe@southandvale.gov.uk or telephone 01235 422600.
Miller Homes: Corey.Webster@southandvale.gov.uk.

The next Parish Council meeting is on September 4th at 7pm in the Village Hall. If you want to find out what has/is happening in the village please come along.
Dr Chris Wilding Chair
