Vision for Headington Centre

Headington Neighbourhood Forum and Headington Action and are taking action to help improve Headington Centre.

Working with Headington Action local people in Headington have put together a vision for the future of Headington Centre. This would involve making the centre welcoming, inclusive, and easily accessible for all, fostering active travel, a stronger identity, lively gathering spaces and a vibrant evening economy.

Headington Action has commenced work to realise the vision. The first step is the preparation of the Headington Centre Improvement Plan.

Headington Action has commissioned urban design practice AR Urbanism, with the support of Wedderburn Transport Planning, to develop the plan.

Since May 2022 the AR Urbanism team has been working on the plan. This has included reviewing issues and opportunities for change, an online survey, and coming up with ideas for potential improvement projects. Following consultation on the ideas (see below) the team will prepare a document (the plan) to explain the projects. Projects will range in size from small to large scale.

The plan will be used to deliver improvements in the future, as and when funding is available.

Exhibition of ideas

An exhibition of draft ideas for the Headington Centre Improvement Plan is taking place on Saturday 29 October, between 10am and 3pm, at St Andrew’s CoE Primary School in Headington.

The exhibition explains the background work undertaken by the AR Urbanism team, summarises key survey findings, presents the vision for the Centre, and describes a range of potential improvement ideas.

We want your feedback on the ideas. If you are unable to attend the exhibition you can download and view the exhibition boards from here:
