Role of the Parish Council

The Parish Council comprises 7 members elected every four years to represent Ogbourne St George. All Council meetings and are open to the public and press, except when items of a confidential nature are being discussed.  Ogbourne St George Parish Council is directly responsible for providing the following services to the parish:

  • The maintenance of play areas throughout the village – including the provision, regular inspection and maintenance of play equipment.
  • Grass mowing of public areas under Parish Council control.
  • The management of small areas of land around the village.

Most importantly the Council takes a lead in getting things done in the community, such as liaising with the police and other authorities; ensuring minor on going maintenance is carried out; and operating as a focal point for discussion and debate of all things which directly affect the Parish.

GET INVOLVED

The Council meets in the village hall on the second Thursday of odd months. The Parish records are held by the Parish Clerk, however, copies of the most recent minutes and other Council notices are displayed on the Council’s notice board.

All meetings are open to the general public and the Council is keen to see residents of the Parish attend meetings. Every meeting has a Public Question Time where residents are invited to speak to the Council about matters concerning the agenda or general issues.
