North East Area

The North-East area captures the six city council wards, namely, Barton and Sandhills, Headington, Quarry and Risinghurst, Headington Hill and Northway, Marston and Churchill. Almost 25% (34,554 people) of the total population of the City lives in this area.

Woodfarm, North East Ward

The area is predominantly residential but with a number of large health and educational organisations based within it. These are:

Hospitals:
  • Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, which includes the John Radcliffe Hospital and the Churchill Hospital

  • Manor Hospital
  • Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and
  • Warneford Hospital
  • Park Hospital for Children
Oxford Brookes University sites:
  • Gipsy Lane
  • Headington Hill
  • Milham Ford
  • Cheney Lane
  • Roosevelt Drive

There is also a new children's hospital on the John Radcliffe site, and services that were originally at the Radcliffe Infirmary in central Oxford, moved to the John Radcliffe and Churchill hospital sites. Although the area benefits from these institutions, there are ongoing issues regarding traffic congestion, parking and pedestrian safety. Both the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust and Oxford Brookes have regular meetings with local residents groups and councillors.

Bury Knowell Library, North East Ward

There is a district shopping centre at Headington with neighbourhood shopping areas in Barton, Northway, Wood Farm and Marston.

The area has a large number of active Residents, Tenants and Community Associations. There is also a co-ordinating committee of Headington Residents' Associations which helps the networking between groups and also to take issues forward jointly.

The main areas of social housing are council-owned homes in Barton, Churchill and Northway wards.

The Parks and open spaces within the area include:

  • Bury Knowle Park
  • Dunstan Park
  • Headington Hill Park

There are also a number of recreation grounds and special areas of conservation, which include Shotover Hill, Magdalen Quarry (Geological), New Marston meadows and Rock Edge (Geological) and Warneford Meadow.
