Parish Council

About the Parish Council

Parish Councils are the first tier of local government and their role is to represent the local community, providing a range of services to meet local needs and improve quality of life and the local community. Councils have the power to tax (precept) their residents to fund their operations. Responsibilities of our Council are varied and include maintaining the village green and play equipment, grass cutting, maintaining the village’s trees, benches, churchyard and cemetery, and forwarding comments on all planning applications affecting the village. Councillors are also representatives on many village organisations and each Councillor has an area of the village to oversee.

Milton-under- Wychwood’s Parish Council consists of the following eight (seven at the moment) elected councillors;

  • Chris Trotman (Chairman)
  • Peter Rawlins (Vice Chairman)
  • Jeff Haine, Carole Smith, John Pratt, Pat Ward and Paul Young (Councillors)
  • Jenny Miller (Clerk to the Council)
