Our Objectives

The aim of our group is to coordinate action by Burford residents to ensure that any housing and related developments within the town and its surrounds:

  • contribute towards actual housing or other community needs in West Oxfordshire whilst being appropriate in their scope and location
  • do not detract from Burford's heritage and the aesthetics of the town and surrounding countryside
  • are feasible in respect of local highways, sewerage and drainage infrastructure
  • are sustainable in their demands on local education, medical and other facilities
  • reflect the diversity of need across Burford’s community

In responding to these objectives, we seek to take account of:

  • the needs of different demographic and income groups within our community
  • the interests of residents and of local voluntary and commercial organisations
