Welcome to Adderbury Parish Council’s Web Site
The Parish Council has recently been the subject of two applications for a Judicial Review, submitted by Nigel Davies, Lindale, Berry Hill Road, Adderbury. Both have been refused by Judge Purle and to defend itself, it has cost the Parish Council over £6000. Please click here for a copy of both of the Orders refusing the applications and the reasons why. Please click here for a copy of the Parish Council’s statement.
There are ten Parish Council meetings per year, plus the Annual Parish Meeting which are usually held in the Church House, Adderbury, and the various Working Groups meet on an ad-hoc basis.
The Parish Council is the first tier of local government. Layered above it are Cherwell District Council and Oxfordshire County Council.
The Parish Council has specific areas of responsibility such as cemetery maintenance, cutting of the grass verges and the Lucy Plackett Playing Field, as well as maintaining benches, noticeboards and litters bins, which are budgeted for on an annual basis. The Parish Council is able to pay for these works within the village from the precept payment it receives from Cherwell District Council, and the annual grass cutting grant from Oxfordshire County Council. Further details of the Parish Council’s responsibilities can be found on the next page of the web site.
The role of a Parish Councillor in Adderbury is undertaken on a voluntary basis and members are not paid allowances.
The next Adderbury Parish Council elections will be held in May 2020.
