About 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.
