Results of the Consultation

The Headington Neighbourhood Forum carried out a consultation with residents and other stakeholders in Headington over the summer of 2014. The consultation was designed to offer suggestions on the important issues affecting Headington and to ask for respondents’ views.

The consultation took the form of a leaflet, distributed to homes in Headington, and was also available on this website and as an online survey.

The Results of the Consultation are now available on the Consultation 2014 page of this website.

Forum Designated (formally approved)

Oxford City Council’s City Executive Board formally designated (approved) Headington Neighbourhood Forum at its meeting on September 10th 2014.

The Forum is now ready to embark on a Consultation with residents, workers and students in Headington to find out what they think are the important issues in Headington.


The Headington Neighbourhood Forum is expected to be designated by the City Council on September 10th and if that happens a consultation with residents, workers and students in Headington will be launched immediately. The consultation is designed to offer suggestions on what are the important issues affecting Headington and to ask you what you think they are.

The consultation in the form of a leaflet will be distributed to homes in Headington for return by Freepost.  For workers and students the leaflet will also be available on this website for download.  An online version of the consultation will also be announced at the same time.  WATCH THIS SPACE.

Policy Groups Uncovering Key Issues

The Forum’s six policy groups are hard at work identifying and discussing issues in their respective areas so that a survey can take place some time after the City Council is expected to designate the Forum (i.e. officially approves its existence) in early September. The survey is intended to prompt those who live, work or study in Headington to think about what they believe are the key issues.  If you have any issues that you think should feature in the survey, please contact the relevant group via their webpage.
