Local Plan 2040

Oxford City Council is embarking on the development a new Local Plan. The Local Plan 2040 will set out the planning strategy for meeting the needs of the city. It will set out where new homes, businesses and community facilities will be built to make Oxford a better place to live, work and visit. It will also look at how we can protect the things that make Oxford special such as open space, ecological habitat and areas of heritage. It will guide how development happens, helping to support the transition towards a zero carbon city, ensuring high quality design, being conscious of health and wellbeing, and addressing inequalities. This is an early opportunity to engage in the development of the Oxford Local Plan 2040 and your opportunity to help shape Oxford’s future. To find out more just go to their website: Oxford Local Plan 2040 | Oxford Local Plan 2040 | Oxford City Council.

      Emergency Planning

      The parish council have put together an emergency plan. This means that should there ever be a serious emergency within the parish or nearby then the authorities managing the situation will be able to call upon and access necessary resources to meet the needs. In addition to accessing public buildings, there will be a need for qualified first aiders, people with 4X4 vehicles, use of equipment such as hedge cutters, and people who can provide assistance if required. If you are willing to become a volunteer then please contact the clerk by email or by calling 01865-203139. Your details will then be passed to the County Council Emergency Planning Team.

      Support for Elderly

      Link for support: Home – Oxfordshire

      Live Well Oxfordshire has been developed by Oxfordshire County Council in partnership with Age UK Oxfordshire.

      The directory has been designed to bring together information about groups and organisations offering services for adults with a variety of needs in one place.

      You can search the directory to find information about services to help you live independently such as home care agencies, or organisations that can help with shopping or gardening.  It also includes information about care homes and health services such as GPs or dentists.

      You can also use Live Well Oxfordshire to look for a new hobby, find out where you can get information about benefits, or support groups for people with health conditions.

      As a member of the public, you can easily save shortlists of services you are interested in. You can also leave feedback for us about any services you have used; this will not be published but will be passed on to the service provider.
