Welcome to Wheatley Parish Council’s official website
THERE ARE TWO CURRENT VACANCIES FOR PARISH COUNCILLORS – CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE.
Wheatley is a large village of about 3500 people six miles south east of Oxford, near Shotover.
Wheatley grew substantially in the 20th century, and is fortunate to have retained its shops in the village centre. It also offers:
- a post office
- a health centre
- a number of pre-school groups
- a nursery school
- a primary school
- a school for pupils with learning disabilities
- play areas, recreation areas and open spaces
The comprehensive school (on an exceptionally scenic site) and part of Brookes University Campus are both in neighbouring Holton.
There is an excellent bus service to Aylesbury, Oxford and Thame. The 280 bus service connects with both Haddenham and Oxford stations.
There are fifteen councillors serving on the Parish Council.
Full Parish Council meetings are every two months, January, March, May, July, September and November (on the first Monday – except May, when it is the second Monday).
The Finance and General Purposes Committee meet on the third Monday of each month (except August).
The Planning Committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month to discuss planning applications within the village
The Traffic and Roads Advisory Committee (TRAC) meets on an adhoc basis to consider traffic and pedestrian safety issues within the village.
We produce a newsletter six times a year, which volunteers deliver to households in Wheatley and Holton.
The clerk’s office is normally open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 9.30am and 11.30am.
