New majority party on Chippy Town Council
THERE is a new majority party on Chipping Norton Town Council following the results of a by-election. Yesterday (Thursday) voters turned out to vote for Graham Birks (Chippy First) and Mark Walker (Labour) at the lower town hall following the resignation of John Osmond earlier this year.
Mr Birks was elected with 408 votes compared to Mr Walker who polled 378.
Chippy First is now has more members on the town council than any other party but still has just five of the 16 councillors. The party was introduced by local councillors with the promise to put the needs of Chipping Norton first.
