Neighbourhood Watch Survey October 2017

Residents have expressed concerns about a spate of burglaries in the Quarry and nearby areas. On occasion, we have also been asked by local Police Officers to make you aware of incidents.

Thames Valley Police operate an alerting service and provide an app that will provide you with alerts when incidents occur, as well as delivering useful information to help you avoid becoming a victim of crime. You can register for the service and the app at (or search for Thames Valley Alert).

In the past, a number of Neighbourhood Watch groups were established (at street level), but most of these seem to have become inactive over time. We feel that it may be a good idea to invigorate these, but would like to understand your views before we do so.

Friends of Quarry Traffic Survey October 2017

You may have received a leaflet through your door earlier this year concerning a suggestion to push for the creation of a Controlled Parking Zone in the Quarry. Although this was only a suggestion from the Oxford Labour Party, it did cause some concern amongst residents, particularly those who remember the Council proposal that was raised in 2003.

Friends of Quarry are not aware of any formal plans to implement a CPZ and have been told that funds are not currently available to implement one. However, as we are surrounded by CPZs and the number of people travelling into Oxford is increasing, we think that it is only a matter of time until one is proposed again.

We believe that, if a CPZ is proposed in the future, we would get a better outcome if we are prepared for it. However, preparing would take a considerable amount of time and effort.

We would therefore like to get your views on this. You can provide them by completing our online survey at
