Nuneham Courtenay Parish Council News


May 2023 elections

The parish council and the whole of South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) are up for election on Thursday 4th May, just two days before the Coronation.


There are five places on the parish council and there is one place on SODC for an area it calls “Sandford and the Wittenhams”, which covers eight different parishes.

The parish council certainly needs new blood: there are just three parish councillors at present, all from houses on the main road, and they have all served for more than five years.


If you would like to stand, you have to hand in your nomination at SODC’s office in Abingdon before 4pm on Tuesday 4th April. 


The deadline for requesting a postal vote is 5pm the following day, Wednesday 5th April.


If you want to apply for one of the Government’s new Voter Authority Certificates because you don’t have any other acceptable photo ID, the deadline for that is 5pm on Tuesday 25th April.



This year’s Annual Parish Meeting will be on Thursday 18th May in the Village Hall, starting at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be provided and the Council hopes many of you will come along, meet your neighbours, let us know about anything bothering you.

The Council’s next meeting is its annual meeting on Tuesday 9th May in the Village Hall, starting at 7pm. To be honest, this is a long meeting with a rather dull agenda, but it does decide who is going to chair the Council for the coming year.
