Following a recent meeting with Cherwell DC to discuss the parish split, from August 18 to May 19, there will be a shadow parish council set up with shadow councillors selected by Cherwell DC. Shadow councillors will be given the opportunity, alongside anyone else, to run in the 2019 election and elected councillors will then formally run the new PC.
If you wish to drive forward positive change and be part of the new Parish Council, please email Tom Beckett (firstname.lastname@example.org) and your details will be passed on.
The shadow council will include experienced people selected by Cherwell DC so no formal experience required.

IMPORTANT REMINDER FOR CATEGORY A TENANTS
If you have been living at Heyford Park before or during the Housing Survey that was completed in March 2012 under the Local Lettings Plan (uploaded to Heyford Regeneration’s website), this means that you have Category A status and therefore have first priority for a new build affordable rental unit at Heyford Park. The Local Lettings Plan also offers Category A tenants the ability to be matched to properties that are larger than you would usually be offered under the Council’s housing allocation policy (subject to affordability).
When a property becomes available for rent, Heyford Regeneration and Cherwell District Council are only able to match properties to tenants who have registered on Cherwell’s Housing Register. The Council and Heyford Regeneration will seek to match the property to a resident who falls within Category A.
Despite repeated communication from both Heyford Regeneration and Cherwell District Council, some Category A tenants still have not registered themselves on Cherwell’s Housing Register. If we have processed all the Category A tenants who are currently registered on Cherwell’s Housing Register, then we will have no choice but to start offering the properties to the Category B tenants. These are people moved to Heyford Park between April 2012 and June 2017. We really do want to ensure those who have been made the offer of Category A status are able to take up the offer of a new home if they want this. It is therefore very important that any interested Category A tenants register themselves immediately before the options at Heyford Park begin to diminish.
Because the affordable housing is a limited resource, we do need to understand if residents in Category A want to take up this offer or are not interested in an affordable house at Heyford Park at this stage. If you have decided for certain that you do not want to take up the offer of a home, then please make either Teresa at Cherwell District Council, or Cat at Heyford Regeneration, aware of this. Both of their contact details have been provided below. If you do want to register with Cherwell both Cat and Teresa can advise you on how to do this.
If any of the remaining Category A tenants are not registered by June 2018, they will automatically become a Category B tenant instead. This is because we need to understand if we have met the original promise made in the Local Lettings Plan to house all Category A tenants who want to take up an offer of affordable housing at Heyford Park.
As a Category B tenant you will still have secondary priority for any affordable housing that is advertised. You will not be directly matched to a property, but instead will need to bid on any properties on the Council’s choice based lettings system with the allocation being made to whoever is shortlisted under the terms of the Local lettings Plan and the Housing Allocation Policy.
IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY ACTION YET, PLEASE DO SO AHEAD OF THE DEADLINE. CONTACT DETAILS CAN BE FOUND ON THE COPY LETTRS ATTACHED.
