Ongoing discussions about the role of the local and county council have developed this week. Adderbury Parish Council has asked we publish the following statement from Barry Wood Leader of Cherwell District Council:
‘Oxfordshire County Council has announced a proposal to create a single unitary authority for Oxfordshire in place of the current district/county council structure.
The proposal was originally opposed by all of Oxfordshire’s city and district councils, including Cherwell. However on Monday South Oxfordshire District Council and the Vale of White Horse District Council announced they are now in support of the county council’s proposal for a single unitary authority and will be working with them to develop a submission to Government.
