Local Elections 2022

(And starting to think about 2023 elections)

 

After a very full local election year in 2021 we were back to normal this year with a third of the district council seats up for election on May 5th.

 

2022 West Oxfordshire Vote  Green Party Polling Card

Last year we worked hard with Andrew Prosser (who was already Town Councillor for Witney North) to get him elected as the first Green Councillor on the West Oxfordshire District Council.  This year after a change of plans, we ending up putting a mammoth effort (thanks to more than 60 volunteers) into our short but intensive campaign to win our target ward Brize Norton.  The wonderful Rosie Pearson is now the second Green Councillor ever on the West Oxfordshire District Council.

 

We also have at least three Green Party Members as town councillors around West Oxfordshire.

 

Just one green councillor on a council has already made a real difference, now that we have two we have contributed to the Conservatives losing overall power for the first time in over two decades. Just think what we can achieve with more Councillors at both District, Town and Parish Level - if you are interested in standing in any of the upcoming elections please let us know through elections@westoxon-greens.uk and we will send you a nomination form. 

The elections in May gave local voters with a real opportunity to let the Government at all levels know what it feels about the legacy of decades of Conservative dominance of local government in Oxfordshire.  The people of West oxfordshire have spoken.  

On Thursday May 4th 2023 there will be elections for 16 wards:

  • Alvescot and Filkins;
  • Bampton and Clanfield;
  • Carterton North East;
  • Carterton North West;
  • Carterton South;
  • Charlbury and Finstock;
  • Chipping Norton;
  • Eynsham and Cassington;
  • Hailey, Minster Lovell and Leafield;
  • Kingham,Rollright and Enstone;
  • Stonesfield and Tackley;
  • Witney Central,
  • Witney East;
  • Witney North;
  • Witney South; and
  • Witney West.

If you would like to be a Green Councillor representing any of these wards please let us know through elections@westoxon-greens.uk and we will send you a nomination form.

There will also be 151 seats up for election on the following 18 Town and Parish Councils:

  • Alvescot (5);
  • Black Bourton (5);
  • Carterton (16);
  • Chipping Norton (16);
  • Clanfield (7);
  • Combe (6);
  • Crawley (5);
  • Enstone (10);
  • Eynsham (15);
  • Filkins and Broughton Poggs (6);
  • Finstock (6);
  • Hailey (7);
  • Langford (5);
  • Leafield (7);
  • Ramsden (5);
  • Stonesfield (8);
  • Swerford (5); and
  • Witney (17)
Most of the parish and town council seats are apolitical and councillors don't declare their political allegiance, but they are an excellent grounding for anyone wanting to serve their local community and can often be a springboard to District and County level elections. We would encourage all Green Party Members and supporters to seriously consider whether they could contribute to their local town or parish council. 
 
With the potential prospect of a Unitary Council for Oxfordshire on the horizon, the experience from other parts of England is that Town and Parish Councils will become more important.

2021 offered an opportunity to get the green voice heard at all levels of local government.
in 2022 we consolidated that  position.  We now have a firm basis on which to build and make real differences in the lives of local residents.gives us the opportunity to build on the gains that were made last year.

In both Witney and Charlbury town councils we have already seen what a difference it makes having a Greens in the council chamber.
  In 2023 we will be looking to extend our influence with more green councillors taking up seats around West Oxon.
