Community Governance Review

Adderbury - May 2020

Following the submission of a Community Governance Review petition from West Adderbury Residents Association, full Council were asked to set up a working group to look at the request to split the existing parish into two separate parishes

An initial report was considered at the meeting on 20 May 2020, and all recommendations were approved. The recommendations included setting up a working group, and approving the timetable for the review, which would be completed by February 2021. The terms of reference gave more details about the process of the review. 

Full Council have now considered the final recommendations, and agreed that no changes should be made to the parish arrangements in Adderbury. 

There were two formal consultation stages during the review. The first one ran from Monday 29 June through to Friday 28 August, and the second from Monday 2 November to Monday 4 January 2021. Every household in Adderbury received a consultation document through the post,  which provided more information about the request to separate the parish. The documents were also available electronically. 

Final Recommendations - February 2021

The Working Group considered all of the consultation responses received, and prepared their final recommendations, which were considered on 22 February 2021 

The recommendations will be considered by full Council on Monday 22 February, and the agenda for the meeting will be published on Friday 12 February. 

Second consultation - November 2020

  • Read the second stage consultation letter
  • See the map with two possible ward boundary locations
  • Potential electorates for each ward - added on Thursday 26 November 2020, following a query from a resident. If two wards were created, and the boundary between them was the Sor Brook, ‘West’ Adderbury would have an electorate of approximately 690, and ‘East’ Adderbury approximately 1750.
    If the ward boundary were to be the A4260/Oxford Road, ‘West’ Adderbury’s electorate would be approximately 991, with ‘East’ Adderbury approximately 1449
