Driving community projects in deprived areas

Community First Oxfordshire has been engaged as project lead on a multi-stakeholder team on a regeneration initiative at Reynolds Way, South Abingdon. A community mural- which came about from evidence gathered during a CLP consultation in 2011 and 2012- had been vandalised, triggering other anti-social behaviour and complaints from residents. ORCC worked alongside Vale DC, Sport for Streets and Sovereign Housing community involvement team to undertake a new consultation project, finding out what local residents would like to see replace the artwork. In turn, this has led to further consultation regarding community infrastructure and the on-going development of a longer term community-wide regeneration and engagement strategy.
