  14. Funding approved for 'super council' battle

    West Oxfordshire District Council has approved £25,000 funding to campaign against proposals to create one council covering the whole county.

    The money will finance a social media campaign and online survey, a letter to residents and signs across the district.

    Council leader James Mills said: “This is not a programme of this council’s making but when it is so clear how our residents feel, I believe we must relay the other side of the story.”

    He added that the county council is spending £200,000 on its campaign and said he had made it clear to them that he believed there are "better things to spend the money on".
