                 and take the figure published in March each year. For the purpose of Goring Heath Parish
                 Council , this will take effect from March 2007.
             8. Website – no report
             9. Tinepits – The District Valuer was about to send her report. It might well be possible to get a

4. District Councillors Report. Peal Slatter reported that the last day for Eco bags to be picked up would be
23rd December after that the service might not continue. She felt a site visit at Castrol would be worthwhile.
The over 60’s would soon be receiving free bus passes. SODC Planning Department had been so successful in
meeting government targets that they had been given £360,000 extra towards staff costs the most in he whole
of Oxfordshire. It was decided that it would be worth writing to Sally Kelsall the Housing Enabling Manager
at South Oxfordshire District Council to enquire if there are still enough people with local connections on the
waiting list for the housing at Crays Pond now that they are nearing completion.
5.County Councillors Report There was no county councillors’ report
