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.

Corridor B chosen.
Corridor announced to unlock full potential of England's economic heartland Corridor B chosen for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway.
Published 12 September 2018
Department for Transport, HM Treasury, Highways England, and Jesse Norman MP A plan to link together fast-growing technology hotspots took a further step closer to fruition today (12 September 2018) as Roads Minister Jesse Norman announced the chosen central corridor for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway.
After detailed scrutiny and review by Highways England, of the 3 options A, B and C, Corridor B was judged to offer greater benefits to the region – outperforming the other options by providing better links to jobs, education, leisure and health services.
The expressway, with options to pass either west or east of Oxford, is also expected to take up to 40 minutes off the journey between the A34 south of Oxford and the M1.
Building the new link close to the east/west rail link will also offer more options for the commercial development of up to 1 million new homes, in line with proposals by the National Infrastructure Commission, and encourage more people to travel by train rather than by cars.
Roads Minister Jesse Norman said:
The government is taking the big decisions on infrastructure, working to maximise growth and productivity across the UK.
England’s economic heartland, as it has been called, already plays a crucial role in powering the UK’s growth, science and innovation, but there is no single route to connect Oxford and Cambridge.
This expressway will enhance both transport connectivity and growth across the region for the benefit of the UK as a whole.
The Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, Robert Jenrick, said:
The Oxford to Cambridge arc is one of the greatest opportunities for economic growth in Europe. We want to realise that potential by investing in the new infrastructure the area needs and the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway is an important part of our plan.
The Expressway will provide a link between 2 of the country’s intellectual powerhouses and open up vital jobs, skills and housing opportunities to transform the region’s economy.
We are investing record amounts in the UK’s infrastructure, including funding the largest road-building programme since the 1970s.
A full public consultation will be held next year, in which residents and businesses in and around the corridor will have their say on more detailed designs for the route.
