Tackling climate change

Since our Climate Emergency Advisory Committee made it's recommendations to the Council, we've set ambitious targets to reduce our own carbon emissions by 75 per cent by 2025 and a 75 per cent reduction in carbon emissions in the district by 2030.

Our committee meetings happen regularly and everyone is invited to come along and hear the discussions on how we can help tackle climate change. More »

New council offices

We recently held an open exhibition and online survey for people to comment on the design of our new council offices in Crowmarsh Gifford, near Wallingford.

Working with our contractors, Ridge, over the course of the design and build phase of the project, we will publish further details as the project progresses, including the decisions made around sustainability elements of the building along with the compromises we need to make for cost-effectiveness.

If you weren't able to attend the open day, you can see the some of the design concepts on our website here.

'Reach' - hand sculpture

A new bespoke art piece called Reach has been opened by students from two local schools. The large hand sculpture has been installed on Great Western Park in Didcot and features small glass discs that light up at night.

Reach was designed and created by Michael Condron who drew from the innovative work and world-leading science coming out of Harwell, Culham and Milton Park business parks.

Pupils from the University Technical College Oxfordshire and Aureus School along with members of the local community helped the artist to create over 600 images celebrating the sciences into coloured glass discs that make up the large metal hand.
