We want your views – a survey for Oakley Vale

Hello July! With the sun gracing our wonderful community and more signs of a new normal emerging, we’re hoping to see Oakley Vale soon return to the bustling, lively area that it always has been.

This month, we’d like to highlight a few ways in which you can enjoy the surrounding areas as well as having your say as to what comes next for Oakley Vale.

We hope you’re all staying safe and well, enjoy the summer sun this month and keep the spirits high!

The latest government announcements

Following the recent government guidelines, lockdown restrictions are to be eased further on 4 July. We’d like to remind members of the community to respect the guidelines and understand that not everyone will feel comfortable with the reopening of communal places. We’ve shown a great sense of community and have grown even stronger throughout the pandemic so it will be brilliant to see this continue into the future.

The Harpers Brook will be reopening again soon, so it’s great to be able to look forward to that. The Oakley Vale Community Centre will also be hopefully reopening in the not too distant future.

If you’d like to read more about the current and upcoming government guidelines, you can find them here.

We’re seeking the views and opinions of local residents about what you’d like to see included in the new local centre that’s being designed as part of the final development phase of Oakley Vale.

With construction due to commence on the new phase in early to mid-2022, with the local centre following in the next year, we’d love to hear what you think of the provisional plans and have your say about what you’d like to see there!
