South Oxfordshire


In the South Oxfordshire District Council elections on 2 May 2019 the Liberal Democrats and Greens have decided to work together and not compete with each other.

This means that a candidate each from Lib Dems and Greens will campaign jointly to become your next councillors in Wallingford, Benson & Crowmarsh, Chinnor, and two Didcot wards. In other wards, the parties will not oppose one another.

We believe politics should be about working together for our local community.

For too long, our local Council has been dominated by a small group who do not represent the best of interests of local residents and our beautiful rural district, but instead seem determined to concrete over as much of it as possible.

We think residents deserve better and to have a wider range of views represented.


South Oxfordshire is a local government district in Oxfordshire, England. Its council is based in Milton Park, Milton.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, from the municipal boroughs of Henley-on-Thames and Wallingford, Thame urban district, and Wallingford Rural District, Bullingdon Rural District and Henley Rural District. The Wallingford parts were previously part of the administrative county of Berkshire.

The River Thames flows for approximately 47 miles through South Oxfordshire and it is joined by the River Thame within the district. A characteristic of the rivers within the district is that they have wide floodplains with few houses on them so that fluvial flooding is a lesser problem than flash flooding.

Towns in the district are Didcot, Henley-on-Thames, Thame, Wallingford and Watlington, while villages include Benson, Berinsfield, Chalgrove, Chinnor, Cholsey, Dorchester, Ewelme, Goring-on-Thames, Lewknor, Sonning Common and Wheatley.
