Traffic Survey is now closed

Thank you to everyone who completed / or helped someone else to complete the Traffic Survey. The Survey is now closed. 146 residents responded and the data provides strong evidence that residents have concerns about the speed of traffic through the village – and are generally in support of reducing the speed limit. You can see the Survey Results here The Parish Council will now proceed with the OCC application to join the 20mph scheme. At the end of the survey, 32 residents expressed an interest in being more involved with the Parish Council. The Clerk will be in touch with those people to find out their areas of interest and what kind of projects they’d like to be involved in.

We’re raising £5,000 to install a new boiler in our village hall

The hall was built in 1913 for the community. It is a unique building made from local brick and stone and is run by a voluntary Committee. The upkeep of this magnificent building is huge. We are now faced with the replacement of equipment to run the heating system. Over the years the premises have been used for many local activities including meetings, music and dancing, keep fit classes, snooker, darts, senior citizens lunches, film shows, birthdays, weddings, wakes, all sorts of parties - not to mention Midsomer Murders have been filmed there. As the cold weather approaches it is imperative we install a new boiler and appeal to everyone to please help us. I personally have been involved in the running of Nettlebed Village Club for over 40 years, my mother and grandfather before me and therefore am passionate in this building being left for the next generation to benefit from the legacy we have enjoyed for so long. Any help,...

20mph for Nettlebed?

Do you think that traffic goes through Nettlebed too fast? If so, this is your chance to do something about it. Recently, Oxfordshire County Council endorsed plans to make it simpler to lower speeds to 20mph in most urban areas and on village streets where it’s supported by residents. Many Nettlebed residents have already shown their support for a reduction in traffic speed with “20’s Plenty” stickers displayed on wheelie bins on the High Street and Watlington Street. Pupils at Nettlebed Community School have also designed their own 20mph posters in support of a reduced speed limit near the school. The County Council needs evidence that this change has strong community support, so to get the views of all residents Nettlebed Parish Council have created a simple survey below - if you haven't already completed the survey or can help a friend/neighbour who would like to respond, please click on the link to let us know what you think: Traffic Survey ...
