Steeple Barton is in North Oxfordshire, halfway between Oxford and Banbury and is one of two villages that comprise the Bartons, the other being Westcote Barton.

In medieval times there was a sizeable settlement near Steeple Barton. However, following the Black Death and when the population was restored the people moved to the central part and this area was called Middle Barton. This is where most of the people live but is not a parish. Only Steeple Barton has a parish council and this is the official site of that parish.

Please the contact the Clerk via email if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where it can help or support you.

Your Voice Counts

24 August 2022

Today we launch the Your Voice Counts consultation. This is your opportunity to let us know how you want us to run your council and what is important for us to focus on. 

We want our Council Plan and Local Plan to be about what our communities want and need. We want to make sure that we are thinking sustainably for the next, and future, generations, as well as protecting and enhancing the fantastic environment in West Oxfordshire.

Over the next four weeks you have the chance to make these plans the right fit for the people of West Oxfordshire.

The consultation is open from today until 21 September and you can click on the below to visit the consultation website to have your say.
