2017 Elections

North Oxfordshire Conservatives are gearing up for the upcoming Oxfordshire County Council elections on Thursday 4th May. 

Over the past four years, Conservative-led Oxfordshire County Council has worked, in difficult circumstances, to deliver a prosperous and thriving county. Since 2013 we have: 

  • Achieved one of the fastest growing economies outside of London with unemployment less than 1%
  • Rolled out superfast broadband to 95% of Oxfordshire homes 
  • Doubled the number of hours of care provided to elderly residents in their homes 
  • Maintained all 43 libraries across the county 
  • Achieved a 'Good' rating for both children's services & adult social care - one of the few UK Councils to do so in both sectors 
  • Generated enough electricity from waste to power a town the size of Banbury - a top recycling Council 

But we recognise there is more still to do be done.. 

With your support on Thursday 4th May, we can deliver a county that works everyone. 

Our pledges to you: 

  • Enhance North Oxfordshire's thriving economy. Back business, create local jobs and promote our market towns
  • Champion the Horton General Hospital & Bicester Community Hospital. Fight against service loss to the JR, maintain excellent NHS care locally 
  • Deliver improved infrastructure. A strong voice campaigning for better local services 
  • Protect children, the elderly and the vulnerable. Continue to safeguard frontline services for those most in need
  • An outstanding education for every child. Helping our children reach their true potential
