Headington Festival – Sat 30 & Sun 31 May 2015

The Headington Festival Weekend was such a success last year, that it is going to be even bigger and better this year!

At the festival the  Headington Neighbourhood Forum will be consulting on its Draft Plan for Headington.

There are also competitions in the Headington shopping area in the week leading up to it.
A number of Headington shops are supporting an “Odd One Out” competition for children to take part in, and there will be a “Where in Headington Centre?” competition for adults.

Details and entry forms will be distributed to shops in the shopping area.

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.

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.

  • The Forum’s six Policy Working Groups took part in a  workshop on Nov. 29th to consider the outcomes of the recent Consultation and to plan the next steps in developing the Neighbourhood Plan.
  • Oxford Brookes University students from the Department of Planning are again supporting the development of the Headington Neighbourhood Plan as part of their final year degree work.  Six groups of students are investigating different aspects of the plan in support of the Policy Working Groups for Amenities & Green Spaces, Character & Identity, Housing, Retail & Business, and Transport.
