Oxfordshire County Council

The 13 Liberal Democrats elected to Oxfordshire County Council work to hold the Conservative-Independent run county to account for its decisions and work on behalf of their constituents to improve the quality of life across the county

Oxfordshire is the most rural county in the South East. It has a population of around 680,000, one third of which lives in towns or villages of less than 10,000 people. The county is a popular visitor destination for its rural beauty, numerous market towns and Oxford city itself, which has earned a global reputation for its academic and architectural splendour. Oxford is also a global centre of publishing. Oxfordshire has consistently high levels of employment and the workforce is amongst the most highly-qualified in the country. World-class business clusters include bioscience, advanced motorsport engineering, scientific research and cryogenics.

Oxfordshire County Council has full elections every four years; the most recent was in May 2017 and the next is due in 2021. Two of our councillors were returned in by-elections in 2018, with Jane Hanna winning in Grove & Wantage and Tim Bearder winning in Wheatley.
