COMMUNITY INFORMATION

 

North Area Forums
The North Area Forum meets at the North Oxford Community Centre. The quarterly meetings consist of invited community representatives and councillors and will be open to all members of the public. They focus on the communities within the area, profiling some topical local issues raised by members of the community, with City Council Officers and local councillors able to offer their views and suggest how these can best be addressed.
