Welcome to the website of Kidmore End Parish Council
Our aim is to provide information on-line for the people of Kidmore End Parish, which includes the village of Kidmore End and the hamlets of Cane End, Chalkhouse Green, Gallowstree Common and Tokers Green.
The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Most of the Parish of Kidmore End is already included in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Council would like to see the AONB extended to include all of the parish.
A New Structure for Local Government?
As you may have read in the Summer 2016 edition of the Outlook newsletter from SODC, the country and district councils are considering changing the way that local government in Oxfordshire is organised, from the existing two-tier arrangement to three or four unitary authorities. You can find out more about these proposals as they develop at www.southoxon.gov.uk/devolution.
There has been a rise in the number of burglaries in the area, especially where there is building work being carried out. Thieves seem particularly interested in (power) tools.
Change in the Availability of Recycling Facilities
From Friday 1 July, it will no longer be possible for residents from outside the council areas of Reading, Wokingham and Bracknell Forest who do not hold permits to use the recycling centre at Island Road ('Smallmead') in Reading.
And to express your views on the possible closure of waste recycling centres in South Oxfordshire, see here...
