Conservation Area updates, June 2021

We have taken the agreed next step in the possible application for Conservation Area status.

The Heritage Consultant, Graham Keevill, toured all the village on 13th April 2021 walking and being driven around from Tar Wood to High Cogges and everywhere in between. He was accompanied at various times by Graham Soame, Dick Pears, Martin Spurrier and Gary Nicholls.

After meetings and adjustments, his final report will be received shortly by the Conservation Area sub-committee and this will be presented to the Parish Council at its meeting in July. If the Parish Council approves it, it has been agreed that it will be disseminated to the village and a decision will be taken by the Parish Council, based on a final consultative poll of the village, whether to make an application to West Oxfordshire District Council for Conservation Area Status.
