Welcome to the Oxford Civic Society
Oxford Civic Society is dedicated to striving for the continuous improvement of Oxford as a wonderful city in which to live, work and relax. Appreciating our past, enjoying the present and pursuing a vision for the future are the fundamentals of our efforts.
We promote sustainable, well-balanced communities, and a physical infrastructure which serves their needs, now and into the future:
- we champion issues to decision-makers and opinion-formers in local and national government, business and the media
- we organise, support and encourage individuals and communities to take action to improve the quality of their environment
- we provide opportunities for our members to participate in our activities, whilst contributing to the objectives of the Society
We have nearly 1,000 members. We are a registered charity and are actively contributing ideas and finance to Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement.
We promote best practice in terms of the sustainable development and management of new and evolving buildings and spaces whilst preserving the best of what we have inherited from the past
We focus on maintaining and developing a sustainable physical infrastructure that functions well for all modes of movement – walking, cycling, motoring, using public transport and sojourning.
We aim to ensure that Oxford is ‘a good place to be’ – a clean, green and well-maintained environment for people to enjoy. We actively encourage appreciation of the distinctive beauty and heritage of our city.
We seek to foster a greater sense of belonging, responsibility, well-being and civic pride amongst local communities – and to empower people by the dissemination of information and ‘know-how’
