Our commitments for public engagement

Find out how we work with residents, businesses and groups to improve services and outcomes for communities in South Oxfordshire.

Our Public Engagement Charter 2016-2020 sets out why, when, and how we will we will speak to people to find out what they want from us, reflect on how we can do things better, and support communities who want to help themselves.

The leader of the council adopted the charter as policy in November 2016.  

The charter details a number of principles that we will adhere to when working with customers.  These include:

  • speaking to people early enough for their comments to influence our plans
  • targeting groups likely to be affected by changes
  • feeding back the outcomes of public engagement activities 

The charter also re-emphasises the councils’ existing commitment to working with the community and voluntary sector.
