Who we are & what we do

The Parish Council currently consists of 9 councillors who serve for a four year term. All Councillors are voluntary and receive no payment whatsoever.

The Clerk's Office and Parish Meeting Room is located at Main Road, Middleton Cheney, Banbury, Oxon OX17 2LR.

Council Meetings are normally held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, except for Bank Holidays where the meeting will be moved to Tuesday - see the diary of meetings for more information.

Middleton Cheney Parish Council maintains green spaces and play areas in the village including the Recreation Grounds at Stanwell and Astrop Road. It acts as Custodian Trustee for the Playing Fields at Astrop Road which is managed by the Middleton Cheney Playing Fields Association.

For further information relating to the services offered by the Parish Council please contact the Parish Clerk who will be happy to give advice and assistance.




The Agenda for meetings is published at least 3 clear days before a meeting (excluding the days of issue and meeting) Sundays, days of Christmas, Easter and Bank Holidays and days appointed for public thanksgiving or mourning. The Agenda will detail the time and place of the meeting and will be displayed on the Parish Council Notice Boards in addition to the website.


Decisions have been taken and these need to be implemented. The clerk or the minuting secretary will write the minutes as a legal record of what was decided at the meeting. It is important that the minutes are accurate and therefore the minutes of the last Monthly and Planning meeting are confirmed and signed at the start of the next Monthly meeting. The minutes will record clearly the actions to be taken following the meeting.
