October 2019 A Community Council for Headington

A decision on the proposed Community Council for Headington was expected to be made by the City Council in October but it has now been deferred to the full Council meeting on 25th November.The Electoral Services department of the City Council, which oversaw the recent Consultation, is responsible for producing a report to go to a full Council meeting. A cross party working group of councillors is being set up to carry out the assessment/analysis. The whole process has been subject to considerable delay, due in part to the unexpected Euro elections.The Electoral Services department have now told the Forum’s Chair that more time than was originally envisaged is required to assess the consultation and prepare a report.  He has agreed that, since the primary aim of the Forum is to have a thorough governance review, if that takes more time, so be it. However, the consequence of the delay is that, if the Community Council is approved, its first elections would not be able to take place until May 2021 - a year later than planned. This further delay would be to allow time to set a precept within the City’s annual budget making process.

HNF/HA urgently need people to help with these projects so please contact or
