Nuneham Courtenay Parish Council News

Conservation meeting

The Parish Council has organised a meeting for 2nd April 2019 in the Village Hall between 7pm and 9pm to discuss the conservation of the heart of the village and the workings of the Nuneham Courtenay Legal Agreement, which enshrines various obligations which it is the district council’s duty to enforce. Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be available.


The Parish Council hopes to distribute invitations to the meeting to everyone in the parish and to deliver a copy of the Nuneham Courtenay Legal Agreement to every house it covers.



By the time you read this, we will have almost reached close of nominations for the 2019 parish council elections. Nominations have to be delivered by hand to the district council offices at 135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Milton OX14 4SB before 4 pm on Wednesday 3 April 2019.


In the event of there being more than five nominations for the five places on the parish council, the election will take place on Thursday 2 May 2019 between the hours of 7am and 10pm, at the same time as the district council elections.

The polling station will be the Village Hall. Poll cards giving the address of the polling station, the date of the election and the hours of the polls, will be issued.


Annual Parish Meeting

The friendly Annual Parish Meeting, open to all parishioners, will be held on Tuesday 30th April in the Village Hall from 7pm to 9pm. There will be wine, nibbles, etc


Gas supply

The Parish Council is investigating the cost of a gas supply to the village following interest from some residents. This may be affordable since there is already gas in Baldon Lane.  Any resident who is interested should contact Mandy Rigault, mandy@nunehamcourtenay.org, giving their name and address. If enough people are interested, Mandy will contact SGN and request a costing.



We need more volunteers if Nuneham Courtenay is to have a Community Speedwatch team to help enforce the 30mph speed limit through the heart of the village.  Volunteers will receive training and a high visibility jacket.  If you are interested, please contact James Fallon, james@nunehamcourtenay.org.


Next council meeting

The first meeting of the new parish council will be on Tuesday 21st May at 7pm when the newly-elected councillors have to choose a chair and vice-chair.
