Oxford City Council

Oxford City Council

Oxfordshire has a two-tier system of local government. This means that your council services are provided by two different councils.

We (Oxford City Council) run services such as planning, leisure and waste collection, while Oxfordshire County Council is responsible for running services such as libraries, schools and social care.

We are a District Council and are the democratically-elected body for Oxford.

In Oxfordshire, there is one county council (Oxfordshire County Council) and five district councils (Oxford City Council, Cherwell, South Oxfordshire, Vale of White Horse and West Oxfordshire).
