Oxford Town Centre Strategy

The Council adopted the Oxford Town Centre Strategy on 5 August 2014.

The development of the Strategy was overseen by the Oxford-Eyre Ward Advisory Board and sets out a vision, key themes that contribute towards achieving the vision, and specific strategic directions that help to secure the future of this centre.
