Parishes Affected

Wallingford and Brightwell-cum-Sotwell


Matter to be considered

Amending the parish boundary to include land at Site A, currently in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell parish, within Wallingford parish.


Impact on district and county council boundaries


Any change to the parish boundary would impact on the Wallingford District Ward and Cholsey District Ward.


Summary of parish council responses

Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Parish Council object to the proposal.


At its meeting on 25 April 2022, Wallingford Town Council’s General Purposes Committee overturned the motion. As such, the request from Wallingford Town Council has been withdrawn.  


Summary of other responses


These are set out in the engagement summary document.



To cease consideration of this matter and delete it from the terms of reference.



Wallingford Town Council made the request to transfer the area known as Site A from Brightwell-cum-Sotwell parish to Wallingford parish. However, at a meeting of Wallingford Town Council’s General Purposes Committee, held on 25 April 2022, the resolution which approved the request was overturned and the request formally withdrawn.  The responses to the engagement were overwhelmingly against the proposal and would therefore be supportive of withdrawing the proposal from this review.
