Welcome to Oxford Streets for People
Oxford Streets for People is a partnership dedicated to making Oxford’s streets friendlier, more pleasant and safer.
We believe that our streets are valuable social spaces for all to use and enjoy. They are spaces for travelling along (whether by foot, cycle, bus or car), for playing in and for interacting with neighbours. We encourage everyone to enjoy their street in this way.
We promote and support street parties as an excellent way of getting to know the neighbours and bringing communities together.
We encourage people to make permanent improvements to their street to make it a friendlier, more pleasant and safer place to be.
We actively encourage local authorities to develop streets in the best interests of all users – with particular emphasis on the needs of those on foot. We promote self guided walks so residents and visitors can enjoy our city.
We support ‘Playing Out’ - an information and advice charity which aims to promote and encourage a return to street play through resident-led, safe direct action.
