Who do I ask for help? 9 Feb 2023 Details of who can fix what in our Parish

The Parish Council is aware that residents, understandably, often don’t know who is responsible for all the things that keep our village pleasant and running as it should.

To help you find who you need when you encounter an issue or have a problem, we have created a list of the common concerns and who best to speak to for a remedy.

If there are any missing from this list, please let us know!

These are the areas that are Eynsham Parish Council’s responsibility:

  1. Grass cutting within the Parish Council land and most highway verges
  2. Play area maintenance/safety concerns
  3. Oxford Road Playing Fields maintenance
  4. Noticeboards
  5. Public benches
  6. Bus shelters (depending on location)
  7. Sports Pavilion
  8. Bartholomew Room
  9. Trees on Parish Council land

For all these, you can contact the Parish Council via epc.comms@eynsham-pc.gov.uk or epc-clerk@eynsham-pc.gov.uk
