Extract from North Hinksey Parish Council email request.

This was discussed at the Parish Council Meeting last night.

The Council has asked that I submit a Declaration of Interest in a change of name from North Hinksey Parish Council to Botley and North Hinksey Community Council.

On maps most of the area is designated Botley with North Hinksey the name of the village.  Also Botley is the Postal address for most of the area now called North Hinksey Parish.  

Councillors also feel that the term Parish has religious conotations for some electors and the term Community Council is a better and more descriptive term for the role of the Council.
