Friends of Headington Hill Park

Headington Hill Park is one of the major open spaces in the Headington Neighbourhood Forum area and a new group to support the park has been formed by volunteers.

More details from Marie Power on power_marie(at)hotmail.com (replace (at) with @ – this is to confuse automatic email address scanners)

The annual membership fee is £3 (a suggested minimum) and one can join by sending a cheque or cash to David Colbeck, Treasurer, 17 London Place OX4 1BD, including a note of your name and contact details.   Cheques should be made out to: Friends of Headington Hill Park.  You can also donate/join by BACS.

Consultation

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.

Changing Patterns of Housing

Oxford City Council’s “Chart of the Month” website for Feb 2013 shows the changing patterns of housing cross Oxford as a whole from the 2001 Census to the 2011 Census. Equivalent data for the Headington Neighbourhood Forum (HNF) area collated by the Housing Policy Group (HPG) can be seen here.  
See the HPG webpage for notes on the census data area and the effect of random changes made in census data by the ONS.
