About Us

The parish was formed in 1990.

​The parish council's role is to represent the interests of the whole parish and elects councillors to fulfill this.

We have an annual grants scheme and can award money up to £2,500 to local groups to enhance life in the parish. 

We have a planning committee that meets on the second Monday of the month to review planning applications and make recommendations to the Oxford City Council Planning Department.
