Consultations

Have your say on the new Garden Village

Residents, businesses and organisations are being offered the chance to have their say on a proposed garden village set to be built to the north of the A40 near Eynsham.

A consultation has been launched focusing on key issues such as transport, housing, jobs and the environment which will form part of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds Garden Village Area Action Plan.

The deadline for comments is 5pm on Friday 3 August 2018.

To access the consultation material and for further information on how to respond, see our garden village webpage.

Draft statements of licensing principles and policy by 10 August 

Draft statement of licensing principles

Every three years we have to publish a Statement of Principles which guides applicants, licence holders and the public on how the Council will make its decisions under the Gambling Act 2005. Our current statement of licensing principles will expire in January 2019 so we have reviewed it and added the following: 

  • local area profiles
  • risk assessments
  • safeguarding in licensed premises

Draft statement of licensing policy

Every five years we have to publish a Statement of policy which guides applicants, licence holders and the public on how the Council will make its decisions under the Licensing Act 2003. Our current statement of licensing policy will expire in January 2019 so we have reviewed and updated it

Comment on the draft statements of licensing principles and licensing policy

We would like the views of residents, Councillors, relevant organisations and licence holders on our draft Statement of licensing principles and policy. We will consider all consultation responses before a final draft goes to Council for adoption. Please:

Accessing our leisure facilities

We own a number of leisure centres, sports halls, gyms and swimming pools in the District and are looking to identify any potential barriers that discourage people from using them.

We want to find out:

  • Any access restrictions that you encounter as a user - for example is the location of a particular resource awkward for you to access?
  • What puts you off using our leisure facilities - for example do you feel we're lacking specialist equipment that could help you?
  • How we can improve?

We are constantly working to make our leisure facilities accessible to everyone. Your feedback will help shape any future development.
