Show off your Oakley Vale

February is here and we’re well into 2020 – which is turning into quite an eventful year! This is true of Oakley Vale too. We have undergone major development over the past 12 years which has seen more than 2,000 new homes successfully built and occupied – and the future is looking bright.

If you are looking for a move, we are certain you will fall in love with it here too and encourage you to visit our updated future developments page for all the latest information. But don’t just take it from us, why not read what other people have said about life in Oakley Vale here.

Show us the best of Oakley Vale

The future is bright in Oakley Vale, not just because of the beautiful homes and wonderful people that continue to settle here, but also because of the ‘Outstanding’ schools, the many classes happening every day at the community centre, the businesses people run in the area

Now we’re in the early stages of celebrating all these things by creating a ‘Welcome’ video to Oakley Vale – and we want your input! If you’ve done, or are doing, any of the below – then get in touch:

  • Run a community class in the area
  • Enjoy walking/dog-walking in nearby parks or green spaces
  • Moved to Oakley Vale and would be happy to be interviewed or filmed
  • Own or run a shop, business or service in the area

You can drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter – and we can see how you might be able to get involved in the latest addition to our website!
