Welcome to the Parish Council Website

This website has been designed and constructed to improve communication within the parish. It provides a useful resource which explains what services the Council undertakes, details of Council business, Councillor contact details and contact details for services provided by Oxfordshire County Council and the Vale of White Horse District Council. The 'Useful Links' page also contains a number of links to websites that may be of interest to a wide range of residents.

The Council encourages local community organisations to advertise their events on the web-site. If you would like to do this please contact:

  • The Parish Clerk  Alan Stone Tel: 01865 861992      E-mail:  nhpcclerk@msn.com

Report It
If you have spotted a problem in your area, please report it by using the following link to an online reporting form. The 'Report It' facility is an Oxfordshire initiative which makes it easier for people to report a range of problems from abandoned vehicles, ant-social behaviour to traffic light problems. You don't have to know which authority is responsible for dealing with the problem - all you need to do is report the problem and the details are then sent to the relevant authority to deal with. Click here to find out how to report it.
