Greens hit out Council spending priorities

Labour run Oxford City Council have announced they are spending £1m on a new health and community hub at Barton Neighbourhood Centre. This comes two years after they spent £4m on the new Rose Hill Community Centre

Green Group Leader Cllr David Thomas says:

"The irony is not lost on the people of East Oxford who are seeing their community facilities demolished. They too are asking for integrated health and community facilities but simply being told that this is unrealistic and unaffordable"

The East Oxford Games Hall, Film Oxford building, and half of the East Oxford Community Centre site will be sold off for redevelopment despite a fully costed bid by Green Councillors last year that would enhance community facilities at the Cowley Road community centre and provide much needed social enterprise and social housing space.
