THE Campaign Group for Watlington PARISH Residents

The Watlington Neighbourhood Development Plan has been evolving over the past four years and the time for you to vote is fast approaching


WATNEXT has evolved from a group of Watlington residents who are passionate about preserving the unique nature of our historic town and planning for the new houses that are needed and as required by Government and District policy   


As residents of Watlington, we think we are very fortunate....we are proud of our market town  but..... take a look further down the page

With around 2500 residents and on the edge of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but just a few miles from the M40 - Watlington is classed as a historic small town, but from a policy aspect is known by South Oxfordshire District Council as a larger village!

  • We have schools with a first class reputation - primary and secondary
  • We have a pre school that is thriving
  • We have a balance of shops for everyday needs and speciality requirements - click here
  • We have three pubs, a fish and chips shop and an Indian restaurant
  • We are the hub for a number of surrounding villages and settlements
  • We have wonderful countryside and walks near to the town
  • We have over 50 clubs and organisations
