About Us

B lackbird Leys Parish Council is made up of two wards, Blackbird and Greater Leys. 


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.


To be a councillor you must live in or within a 3-mile radius, and we currently have vacancies. 

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.


The full parish council also meets monthly and meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every month.

If you require more information please contact the Parish Clerk.
