About Us

The Parish Council meets on the second Tuesday of every month (except August and December) at 7.30pm in the Terrace Room at the Village Hall.   It is an open meeting and all are welcome.  Minutes are published on this website and in the Parish Magazine.   Members of the public are always welcome to raise relevant matters through the Parish Clerk.

Councillors are elected by the residents of Islip to serve for a 4-year term, receiving no payment except the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses incurred on Council business.

We manage parish properties such as the Playing Field, the Burial Ground and the Parish Allotments, and a major part of our responsibility is to maintain these areas along with the street verges and greens.

Oxfordshire is responsible for highways but their reluctance to fund certain local projects means that costs such as protecting our verges have to be met by the Parish.

Although Cherwell is the planning authority, we are consulted over planning issues, particularly those involving the Conservation Area and the Oxford Green Belt in which Islip is located.

We subscribe to The Campaign to Protect Rural England and the Green Belt Network. A team of volunteers regularly clears litter from our streets and a Neighbourhood Watch group alerts the police to suspicious activities.

Meet the Parish Council members or check for member vacancies.
