Sibford Gower (with Burdrop) Parish Council

Notice: BT plan to remove telephone kiosks. Click here for information.


Sibford Gower Parish Council consists of five members elected by the community every four years, with power to fill vacancies by co-opting. Parish Councillors are unpaid and are elected as individuals, not on party lines. We appoint a Parish Clerk who is also our Responsible Finance Officer and administers the council's business. The Council decides on the annual financial precept, which residents pay as part of their Council Tax, and which is used for items of public expenditure in the village. Meetings are public and held every two months in the evening in the Primary School; they are advertised on the village notice board and in the Sibford Scene, as well as on the website. A number of local residents regularly attend, and there is a special slot for them to express their views and raise questions. Our local District and County Councillor also normally comes, and keeps us in touch with wider local government issues.

There is also an Annual Parish Meeting once a year, which attracts a large number of residents; it is attended by representatives of Cherwell and Oxfordshire Councils, the police and other services, and is a good place to air public concerns.

The current members of the Parish Council are: Peter Abbott (Vice-Chairman), Susan Bannister, Oswyn Murray (Chairman), Alan Parkin, Gilian Soden and the Clerk and the Responsible Finance Officer is Peter Hardman - 01295 780391 or email sgpc@thesibfords.org.uk
