General Notices

Public Consultations

Please take time to participate in 2 of Oxfordshire County Council's important consultations (click on the title to be taken to the County Council's webpage):-

Oxfordshire County Council budget saving options 2016/17 – There are currently 95 areas where the County Council feel they could save money.  (It has already saved nearly £300m but needs to find another £50m savings over the next 4 years). These areas include less road patching work, a less responsive street lighting maintenance service, a less responsive gully emptying service, a reduction in funding for those with Dementia, less funding for services for disabled children and families.  Please consider which areas are important to be kept and continue to be financially supported.


Closing date is 30 November 2015.


Oxfordshire County Council one-way traffic order – This consultation procedure aims to specify clearly the extent of the one-way system in Old Minster Lovell using exact measurements.  It is the Parish Council’s opinion that the system has worked well since its implementation until more recent months when 2-way traffic was suddenly permitted on a short stretch of the eastern arm without consultation or advice.  The updated traffic order will correct this situation and your support is requested to recommend this updated order.


Closing date is 11 December 2015.

Repatriation of fallen
service personnel


A group of parishioners have organised repatriation assemblies at the south end of the village at the junction of the Brize Norton road and the A40 slip road.

Car parking is available at the Minster Lovell Scout Group car park. 

Contact has been made with the repatriation organizing group at Brize Norton so the cortege will slow down at the junction allowing the assembled people to pay their respects. Posters informing the Village of any forthcoming repatriation will be displayed at the Spar Shop and at the Post Office.

Anyone wishing to know details of repatriation can log on to:-
