Great Milton Parish Plan
Our Parish Plan sets out a vision of how our community wants to develop and is based on a detailed consultation with the whole community.
Our plan celebrates the good things, highlights local needs and contains a detailed action plan to help the community meet those needs. It will be used to steer and influence the decisions made by the Parish Council, South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council.
Please find our plan here.
Great Milton lies in an undulating plain, with the Chilterns to the east and the city of Oxford to the west.
The Village is an interesting combination of very old properties, 30’s and 40’s houses and through the years to modern day dwellings, bungalows and affordable housing, all this surrounded by farms and farmland.
The church of St Mary the Virgin stands at one end of the village amongst large country houses - some of these were built for Oxford dons (when it was much healthier to live away from the City), and others that were involved in the Civil War (both sides), and of course a manor and a priory.
The village green, surrounded by old thatched cottages, the pub and newer houses is the centre of the village with a road running down to the Shop, Post office, Methodist Church and primary school and on to the much larger village of Wheatley.
In the opposite direction, lies the older part of the village - large houses, the church and the manor (now Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons) on the eastern boundary.
Again, using the green as the centre, the third road runs uphill towards the A329, with a mixture of bungalows, older properties and affordable housing and then on to open fields.
