Proposed Closure of St Leonard’s Churchyard, Eynsham
“Further to our consultation in 2014, we have received notification from the Ministry of Justice confirming the first part of the churchyard closure process for St Leonard’s Churchyard. A notice which announces the Secretary of State’s intention to apply for a closure Order, including any exceptions, will be published on the church notice board in the Square. The MOJ has also advised Eynsham Parish Council and West Oxfordshire District Council.
