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. Parish Councils receive a grant in the form of a Precept from the Council Tax 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 elected councillors;

  • Graham Smith (Chairman)
  • Glynn Allcock (Vice Chairman)
  • Rod Blackman, Jeff Haine, John Pratt, Peter Rawlins, Chris Trotman, Pat Ward  (Councillors)
  • Lara Jacques (Clerk to the Council)
