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.

Proposed Designation of Headington Neighbourhood Forum

The application to designate the Headington Neighbourhood Forum is being consulted on by the City Council for a 6 week period running until the 3rd July 2014. Comments should consider whether the neighbourhood forum is appropriate to be designated. If you wish to submit comments, please email them to or submit comments in writing to: Planning Policy, St Aldate’s Chambers, 109-113 St Aldates, Oxford, OX1 1DS.
