Tackley Parish Council

Tackley Parish Council is the first tier of your local government.  It delivers a vast range of services at a community level.

At present there is a three- tiered structure of local government:

Tackley Parish Council

West Oxfordshire District Council

Oxfordshire County Council

The Parish council is involved in planning, housing, promoting tourism, licensing, maintaining the playing field, maintaining Crecy Hill Nature Reserve, maintaining Tackley Heath, reporting Highways issues, grass cutting of public areas in Tackley, allotments and lots more.

The Parish Council is a statutory body.  The Council is principally funded by an annual precept.  The years budget is set at the budget meeting in December every year and the precept is decided on.  The Precept is added to the council tax, collected by the county or district council and paid to the parish in two six monthly instalments.  The Parish Council can apply for other funding such as grants and funding awards, but there is no funding directly from Central Government.

Tackley Parish Council consists of seven elected councillors, a parish clerk and two resident representatives.  

Your Parish Clerk and RFO is:

Jan Read

Your Parish Councillors are:

Councillor June Collier - Parish Council Chairman
