Summary of other responses


These are set out in the engagement summary document.



To consult on a proposal to rename Wootton Parish Council Wootton and Boars Hill Parish Council.


Justification for recommendation

Wootton Parish Council put forward the proposal to be more inclusive of the different communities within the parish and address concerns expressed by some residents of Boars Hill.

The initial engagement exercise shows that there is support for the proposed name change. It is considered appropriate that formal consultation on the proposal is necessary to assess any wider support for the name change and the impact on the identity and interests of the community.
