Welcome to Bampton in Oxfordshire

The home of the fictitious Downton of Downton Abbey fame and Hugh de Singleton Mel Starr's medieval surgeon. This website is now run by the Parish Council and is intended to be a community news site so it will no longer accept commercial advertising. However if you want further details of local opportunities for advertising please see www.bamptonbeam.co.uk. If you find that anything is incorrect or you have any news that you think may be of interest to our readers please let us know by contacting webmaster@bamptonoxon-parishcouncil.gov.uk


The Bampton Parish Council have looked at the route proposed by Stagecoach/OCC and do not consider it serves the neighbourhood well. The population of Bampton is centered around New Road, not High Street and Aston Road (the proposed Stagecoach Route). The majority of customers for the No 19 bus live to the north of High Street and Aston Road. The shift in population to the north will soon be even more pronounced following the completion of the 160 house Cala Homes development. Stagecoach customers in general do not live in the Old village houses bordering the proposed Stagecoach route. Retaining this bus service depends on it being commercially viable. It will lose customers with present proposed route. Please give us your feedback via webmaster@bamptonoxon-parishcouncil.gov.uk.

Household Waste Recycling Centre Consultation
Oxfordshire County Council is implementing the Household Waste Recycling Centre strategy. Part of implementing the new strategy is procuring a new management contract to operate the HWRC sites. We would like to know residents views on measures that could be implemented at sites to make savings and create income. There will be a consultation on these proposals running from 14th July to 11th August 2016. The consultation documents are available online at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/waste and we encourage people to complete the response questionnaire. If residents need support to take part in this consultation we recommend they contact the county council on 01865 816043 or email waste.management@oxfordshire.gov.uk.
