Welcome to the Tetsworth Parish Website
This website was originally created by Tetsworth Parish Council as a means of distributing and sharing information about the Parish Council and its business. However, it clearly has the potential to be developed as a much richer information hub reflecting and supporting the whole of the Tetsworth community. While it may still have some way to go before it fully satisfies this aim, the site will try to bring together news of village organisations and act as a source of information on services available to the Tetsworth community.
The Parish Council meets once a month at 7.30pm on the second Monday of the month in Tetsworth Memorial Hall. Members of the public are welcome. The Parish Council does not meet in August. Please click here to see the Agenda for the next meeting. Minutes of previous meetings are also posted on the site.
Please contact The Clerk if you would like to find other useful information which is not yet included.

Local Plan Consultation
Residents urged to get involved in South Oxfordshire Local PlanCommunities in South Oxfordshire are being urged to “get involved” as the district council develops its plan to address the need for housing and job growth in the district. The plan includes a more detailed look at what new infrastructure will be needed and how it will be delivered.
The latest draft of the council’s new Local Plan will be available for consultation from 29 March for seven weeks to give residents and local organisations the opportunity to comment on the document.
The plan includes more detail about the district’s need for infrastructure like new shops, leisure centres, schools and roads - and how this need will change as new houses are built.
Cllr John Cotton, Leader of South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “We are coming to an important stage as we develop the Local Plan and now is the time for residents to get involved. It covers how we plan to deal with the local need for new homes, but also how we’ll make sure the district gets the infrastructure and high quality jobs it needs to support them.”
The plan will be published on the council’s website at www.southoxon.gov.uk/newlocalplan along with all the details on how to comment.
There are four public exhibitions taking place throughout April for residents to find out more about the plan and to ask questions.
Residents can attend any event to discuss what is happening in their area:
Didcot, Cornerstone - Wednesday 5 April,1pm – 7pm
Wallingford, Regal Centre – Friday 7 April, 3pm – 7pm
Thame, Barns Centre – Saturday 8 April, 10am – 4pm
