Oxford City Council


We’re building a world-class city for everyone.

Oxford, which has one of the fastest growing economies of all UK cities, is a global centre for research, education and health, and has a growing high-tech sector.

The city also has a rich heritage and outstanding cultural attractions that attract millions of visitors every year.

Oxford also has a young, growing transient, and ethnically- and culturally-diverse population.

But the city also has challenges. A lack of land for housing and employment, transport infrastructure that is at full capacity, and major inequalities between residents’​ life chances.

Our ambition is therefore to make Oxford a world-class city for all our citizens. From this ambition, our priorities are:

– A Vibrant and Sustainable Economy

– Meeting Housing Needs

– Strong and Active Communities

– A Clean and Green Oxford

– An Efficient and Effective Council
