Hot off the press! Interesting read about living in rural Oxfordshire today.
Oxfordshire is a rural county. It is the second least densely populated county in the South East. Despite this, we are not aware as we should be of the distinct difference there is in living in rural Oxfordshire, rather than in a town.
Community First Oxfordshire carried out the first Oxfordshire Rural Services Survey with rural parishes, towns and peripheral urban communities. It was designed to gather information on services and facilities in these communities and questions on strengths and challenges. The survey was carried out in February 2020, before the Covid-19 crisis hit us.
The survey results provide an initial benchmark on service provision in rural parishes and communities. As well as the report, CFO plans to follow up the survey by holding several focus groups with interested parish council representatives in summer and autumn 2020.
