City Updates

City Hall sends infrastructure renewal notices to the OPCA's email address. The notices below are examples of letters and notices the Cavendish Park area residents received throughout 2018. Oxford Park neighbours can expect to receive similar notices when infrastructure work is pending for their street.

Neighbourhood Safety Audit

Oxford Park completed a Neighbourhood Safety Audit in April 2017 in partnership with NeighbourGood London. 

A significant number of these issues can be addressed when our streets are replaced. 

What safety changes can we make happen during infrastructure construction?

There are several homes on the heritage inventory, which are not protected by designation:

  • 132 Columbia Avenue, c1850, Georgian
  • 207 Riverside Drive, c1890, Late Victorian
