RE: Household waste recycling centres consultation

Council is implementing the Household Waste Recycling Centre strategy that was passed by cabinet on the 15th December 2015.

Part of implementing the new strategy is procuring a new management contract to operate the HWRC sites. We would like to know residents views on measures that could be implemented at sites to make savings and create income.

There will be a consultation on these proposals running from 14th July to 11th August 2016. This consultation is open to all Oxfordshire householders to comment on.

Understanding public views, opinions and preferences is key to our decision making process.

The consultation documents are available online at and we encourage people to complete the response questionnaire. If residents need support to take part in this consultation we recommend they contact the county council on 01865 816043 or email

To make sure that as many people are given the opportunity to respond as possible, we would be grateful if you could also display the enclosed poster and pass this information on to other members of your parish council.

Yours sincerely,

Waste Management Team

Letter relating to the closure of the Mobile Library Service in Oxfordshire

Dear Clerk,

I am writing to confirm that, regretfully, the mobile library service in Oxfordshire will cease to operate in September.

This difficult decision was taken in February following extensive public consultation on proposals to make huge financial savings across all county council services. As a result of reductions in the money the council receives from central Government and rising demand for essential services such as social care for vulnerable adults and children, we are currently in the process of having to save £361million between 2010 and 2018.

We know how greatly the mobile library is valued by its users, and are encouraging  people to continue borrowing books from the service until the last round of visits begins on Monday 5th September. The final day of the service will be Friday 16th September.

Service users will be offered alternative library provision through our network of 43 library buildings; our online library services; and our Home Library Service.  Oxfordshire Library Service already has a successful Home Library Service that works through paid staff, partners and volunteers to deliver books and resources to those residents who are unable to get to a library themselves, and this is being expanded to accommodate any additional demand.  

Schools have already been notified and our general service users will be informed formally of the changes and alternative provision by letter on June 6th.

I would like to thank you for the support you have given to the mobile library service and I do hope that we will be able to work with our service users to find suitable ways for them to continue accessing library services in the future.

Yours faithfully,


Jillian Southwell

  • Thames Water to take on the responsibility of 4,000 sewage pumping stations from property owners and managers
  • Utility will take over electricity and maintenance costs under new legislation, potentially saving customers thousands of pounds
  • Firm appeals for help tracking 1,800 ‘missing’ stations

Thames Water is appealing to customers to help identify privately owned sewage pumping stations.

The utility, which serves 15 million customers across London and the Thames Valley, will take responsibility for around 4,000 pumping in October 2016, but needs to track down 1,800 currently off its radar.

New legislation means sewage pumping stations, which power wastewater away from properties and out into the public sewer pipe network, currently owned and maintained by customers will become legally owned and operated by the local water company.

The pumping stations are found in all shapes and sizes, and can be in places where there are a number of properties needing to connect to the public sewer network. Customers will know they have one as they’ll be paying to maintain and power them.

Jerry White, of Thames Water, said: “This is really good news for customers. We’d urge anyone who thinks they may have one to get in touch so we can check they are eligible for the transfer of ownership. In some cases, as well as electricity savings, maintaining and replacing pumps can cost thousands of pounds so it’s an excellent deal for them.

“We believe we know where approximately half of the stations we need to take over are, but really need help to find the other 1,800. Please get in touch if you think this applies to you and we can take on the responsibility forever.”

Anyone with a private pumping station can make Thames Water aware at

Notes to editors

A sewer pumping station is likely to be ‘adopted’ by Thames Water if it:

  • was in use before July 2011 (and)
  • serve a single property, and is outside the property boundary (or)
  • serves two or more properties

High-speed broadband arrives in Horley

 As part of the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme, a fibre-enabled cabinet is now live and ready to take orders in Horley.

This means that 187 residents and businesses in the parish will be able to request upgrades to fibre-enabled broadband from a range of Internet Service Providers (ISPs). In most cases this means that residents can select a product offering download speeds above 24Mb/s following infrastructure upgrades made via Better Broadband for Oxfordshire.

The aim of the £30m programme, funded by Oxfordshire County Council, Cherwell District Council, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) and BT, is to provide access to fibre-enabled broadband where this is not commercially viable without public sector investment.

The cabinet in the following location is now sporting a large sticker declaring “Fibre broadband is here”. This indicates that the cabinet is live and ready to take customer orders:

Horley Cabinet 6 is located opposite Wroxlea, Horley Path Road junction and Stratford Road, Oxfordshire and will serve the following postcodes:

  • OX156ED
  • OX156QE
  • OX156EF
  • OX156QF
  • OX156EG
  • OX156QG
  • OX156EH
  • OX156QP
  • OX156EJ
  • OX156QR
  • OX156EL
  • OX156QS
  • OX156EN
  • OX156QW
  • OX156EQ
  • OX156QX
  • OX156EZ
  • OX156JD
  • OX156PU
  • OX156PX
  • OX156PZ
  • OX156QA
  • OX156QB
  • OX156AY
  • OX156QD

Please note that improved broadband services are not turned on automatically. To access fibre-enabled broadband, please contact your chosen ISP or use comparison sites to find available packages. There is a list of ISPs on the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire website:

If you contact an ISP, state that you wish to order ‘fibre-enabled / superfast broadband’ otherwise they may offer you a slower broadband service. Your chosen ISP should be able to offer any technical assistance necessary to access fibre-enabled/superfast broadband.

It is important to note that not all premises within a postcode area will necessarily be able to order superfast speeds (above 24Mb/s). Premises will be able to access a range of speeds – some will get superfast broadband and others will be able to get anywhere between 2Mb/s and 24Mb/s, depending on distance from the cabinet.

Electoral Review of Cherwell

Cherwell-dr-summary-image-2014-12-09The Independent Local Government Boundary Commission is asking people across the Cherwell District to comment on the new proposed electoral arrangements.

The draft recommendation for the Wroxton ward to which Horley currently belongs, is to combine with Cropredy and the Sibfords with 3 councillors.

The review aims to ensure that each Cherwell councillor represents roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflect the interests and identities of local communities.

For more information and interactive links see this link.

Have your say

If you have views to support these recommendations or would like to propose alternative arrangements please email or in writing to:

The Review Officer (Cherwell), Local Government Boundary Commission for England, Layden House, 76-78 Turnmill Street, London, EC1M 5LG.

Volunteer Drivers

As you may have seen in the December edition of Horley Views or on the notice board, volunteer car drivers are required for the Cherwell area to help people who need transport – this may be for such things as a hospital appointment or shopping.

Volunteer Connect  is a service which connects people in need of transport with volunteer drivers. It is run by the Citizens Advise Bureau in Banbury from their office in the market place.

Maybe you know of someone that could use this service and you could tell them about it; or maybe you would like to volunteer yourself? Perhaps this service could help our rural community?

To find out more: Call 0300-3030125 or email  or call in to the CAB offices
