In older areas of Didcot, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Oxford St Thomas the Martyr, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.Q.
Conservation areas preserve areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.Q.
English Heritage maintain records of the state of conservation areas in Didcot and throughout England.
