Headington Plan Approved!

The Headington Neighbourhood Plan was approved in a referendum held on 4 May 2017. It is the first neighbourhood plan in Oxford to go to a referendum.

The question on the ballot paper was “Do you want Oxford City Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Headington to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

For the record:

  • 3310 (86%) voted ‘Yes’;
  • 543 (14%) voted ‘No’;
  • turnout was 38%.

Congratulations and thanks are due to all the people who contributed in some way to the Plan, and especially to the small team of dedicated individuals led by Mike Ratcliffe and Patrick Coulter who put a huge amount of time and energy into the project.
