Parish Poll on proposed grant

On 8 December 2016 a Parish Poll will be held in the Memorial Hall to ask the town's electors whether the Town Council should give grants of:

  • £130,000 to the Thomas Gifford Trust, for the Charlbury Community Centre;
  • £70,000 to the Charlbury Football & Sports Club, for a new headquarters, changing rooms and social facility on Nine Acres.

The money would be raised by a loan taken out by the Town Council, typically from the Public Works Loan Board, and repaid over 20 years. The effect would be a rise of around £10 in the annual council tax on a Band D property.

The poll will be held in the Memorial Hall between 4pm and 9pm. Government regulations state that poll cards are not issued, and unfortunately postal votes are not permitted.
