Your Councillors

Who represents me as an Oxton parishioner?  

You are represented by seven Parish Councillors. 

Richard Cross (Chair)
Hannah Lempicki (Vice Chair)
Nick Borrett
Margaret Cooper
Jill Jones
Lyndsey Whitby
Clive Catlin

And your Parish Clerk is Lisa-Jayne Campbell

There is a legal requirement for them to attend local council meetings and abide by a national code of conduct.

Elections to the Council are held every four years, the next elections being May 20
19, subject to the election being contested ie. having more than seven nominations for election, otherwise the nominations will automatically be elected. 

Every year, a Chair and Vice Chair are elected from the Council and they hold office for one year.

The Councillors meet regularly (monthly for most of the year) to make decisions on the work and direction of the council. Individual Councillors do not have, and cannot be given, powers to make decisions on behalf of the Parish Council.  All matters coming before the Council must be decided upon by a majority of Councillors present and voting. Each Councillor has one vote and must vote in person. (Councillors who have been disqualified by declaring a personal and prejudicial interest will not vote). In addition, the Chair has the casting vote if it is required.

The Council employ a Clerk to carry out the administrative and legal requirements of the Council. The Clerk is the Proper Officer and Principal Financial Officer of the Council.

Who is on the Parish Council?


 Hannah Lempicki
Vice Chair

I moved into the village with my husband Richard in 2017 from a small village in Derbyshire, where we lived for 10 years.
We loved the lifestyle that Oxton has to offer, lots of history, walking trails on your doorstep and community spirit in abundance.
I became a parish councillor as I feel passionate about preserving the looks and feel of the village and encouraging the younger generation to get involved with village life and all it has to offer.
Outside of the parish council, I am part of the committee that organises the annual village fete, which helps to contribute towards the good causes for Oxton.

 Margaret Cooper
I am Oxton Parish Council's longest-serving Councillor having been elected to Oxton Parish Council in 1983.  I acted as Chair from 2003 - 2009.

I organise the chiropody clinic, sponsored by the PC, which has a monthly clinic in the village hall which aims to help people who have transport/health problems.
I organise the Oxton Toad Project which involves closing Beanford Road each year and patrolling Blind Lane where the two toad crossings are situated in the village.
I produced an oral history book in 2001 entitled "Oxton Now & Then" which is still available, plus the video "Hidden Oxton" which Adrian Todd and I made to follow on from the book, also still available.
  Richard Cross

Originally from Northamptonshire moved to Oxton in June 2010 as Oxton Estate manager, I am married with a young daughter.
I was co-opted onto the PC in November 2013.
I put myself forward for Vice chair after the 2015 election.
I became a Parish Councillor to complete a circle,my input was being sort regularly by the PC in my role as Estate manager,so I thought being on the PC was a natural progression.
My main areas of interest are Planning ,Public rights of way and Flooding issues in the village. I am also fairly practical and can help undertake some tasks that come up at meetings.
My main hopes are for the village to flourish and have a community spirit with respect for others.


Jill Jones


 Nick Borrett
Caroline and I have lived in Oxton for nearly 20 years and we have enjoyed
village life and the community spirit.
I want to help support and protect our village and to encourage respect for
all the facilities we enjoy.
My particular interest is in our flood defences and safeguarding of the
village from traffic and other potential nuisances.
I have enjoyed a local career in architecture and have specialised in the
development of care facilities for elderly people.
In my limited leisure moments I write, create artwork , support Trent
Vineyard Church, Panthers Ice Hockey team and I enjoy DIY and gardening.
Now and then I dress up and promote the Water Lane Duck race!!
