Stagecoach Oxfordshire are making some changes and putting extra buses on for their West Oxfordshire services S1, S2, S7, 11, 15, 19 and 233 from Sunday 3 September, ready for the new school term and the opening of the new Westgate Centre in October.

Council getting it right on social care

Older people and those with learning disabilities in Oxfordshire receive better services from their providers than the national average across England. Of the 21,200 social care organisations/settings (care homes and home care) in England, 202 are in Oxfordshire.

New speed limit for Church Road in Long Hanborough

Motorists travelling through Long Hanborough in West Oxfordshire will be subject to new speed limits in response to a new development nearby.

As well as the speed limit change, the developer will pay for the relocation of the existing traffic calming build out and road hump to the point at which the new 30mph speed limit on Church Road will end. #LongHanborough #ChurchHanborough
