City Council’s Community Centre Strategy 2016 to 2020 consultation

The City Council’s Community Centre Strategy 2016 to 2020 has been released for consultation.

We are asking residents, partners and stakeholders to let us have your comments and feedback on the draft strategy.

As an existing or potential customer of the Community services Oxford City Council provides we would like to consult with you to take into account any comments or feedback you may have.

Oxford City Council is fortunate in having retained an extensive network of community centres across the city. They differ widely in their size, range of activities hosted and their physical condition. The draft Community Centres Strategy, 2016 – 2020 is designed to initiate a process for the long term management of the network and the support structures provided by the Council.

The centres represent collectively a substantial investment by the Council in community managed facilities and the Council’s strategic objective is to support them to be active and inclusive places. This helps to bring communities together, and achieve the wider objectives of improving skills, reducing inequalities and creating strong and active communities.

The strategy identifies ways in which the Council will support the development of the Community Centre network and prioritise its resources to extend and improve the ways in which the centres can serve their communities.

A full version of the draft strategy is available to read on our website at Oxford City Council Open Consultations and consultation can be completed online at

If you would prefer to receive a paper copy of the draft strategy or questionnaire please call 01865 252803.

Alternatively please directly email you feedback to Communities@oxford.gov.uk

Consultation closes on the 22 March 2016.
