Local council meetings

The North-East Area Committee ceased to exist in May 2011. Its two functions are now split in two:

(1) Planning

Most applications are delegated to officers. Sign up for notification of planning applications here:

Oxford now has just two planning committees: East and West, with Headington & Marston coming under the East Area Planning Committee (covering the 13 wards of the North-East, South-East and Cowley Area Committees). The East Area Planning Committee is a group of councillors from across Oxford that meets once a month at the Town Hall, and local residents are able to attend and speak (in the same way that they did at the Strategic Development Control Committee).

(2) Area meetings

The North-East Area Forum is supposed to meet every three months, but has not met since October 2014 and appears to be dormant. It covers the same six Headington & Marston wards as the North-East Area Committee, but has no planning powers.

Some individual city councillors also arrange additional less formal meetings just for people who live in their ward. People living in the central Headington ward, for example, are invited to nine focus meetings a year.
