Help set the ‘Way Ahead’ for South Oxfordshire

Delivering new council owned homes and increasing the amount of land protected for nature are just two of the ideas being discussed as a potential way ahead for South Oxfordshire.

South Oxfordshire District Council is setting a new council plan for the next four years and is encouraging everyone within the district to join in the conversation ‘The Way Ahead".

The district council is opening up a four-week discussion around creating a fairer, more inclusive South Oxfordshire where all residents can thrive both now and in the future.

The Council has set out its initial ideas on what direction to take and the aim is now to open up a two-way conversation and find out what residents, businesses, community groups and organisations think. The feedback will contribute to the development of a new draft council plan for 2024-2028.

The conversation runs until Tuesday 14 May.

Alternative formats (for example large print, Braille, audio, email, Easy Read and alternative languages) are available on request by emailing or call 01235 422425.

There will be a drop-in event this Thursday (18 April) where people can come along to find out more:

  • Thursday 18 April – Didcot Civic Hall, 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

Information will be available at a number of other locations, including at local libraries in the district, at Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot and at the council offices in Abbey House, Abingdon. There is also a virtual exhibition available here.

‘The Way Ahead’ outlines five key themes steering the council’s existing and aspirational plans within South Oxfordshire, covering:

  • Action on climate change and nature recovery;
  • Inclusion, accessibility and accountability;
  • Thriving and healthy communities;
  • Homes and infrastructure that meet local need;
  • Financial stability and innovative transformation.
