Method of Operation During Period of Covid-19 Lock Down 


A Designated Committee comprising the Chair (Philip Clarke), Vice Chair (Fiona Rowe), Cllr Andrew Thomas, Mike White (Finance Officer) and the Clerk was formed with unanimous full Parish Council approval to operate at a reduced level making decisions on basic or urgent matters on behalf of the full Parish Council during the period of Covid-19 enforced lock down conditions.  It was agreed that a weekly meeting (or as deemed necessary) should be held remotely via 'Teams', already available within the Microsoft 365 package in use.  The agendas and minutes of these meetings will be published on the four village noticeboards and this website for public viewing.  Any urgent public items for a future agenda will be considered for inclusion by the Designated Committee.






The Parish Council receive a copy of Planning Applications that have been submitted to Cherwell District Council (CDC) which relate to Chesterton parish. Applications can be viewed on the CDC website as can updates on the progress or outcome of each application.

Please note that Chesterton Parish council can only comment on planning applications. Only CDC are able to give planning permission.

N.B. Three areas of Chesterton have been designated by CDC as a 'Conservation Area'.  These are the Main Village Character Area, Chesterton Lodge Character Area, and the Northern Character Area. This places certain restrictions on what might be acceptable and what can be done - for example tree felling requires permission. For further information refer to
