About Healthy New Towns

Oxfordshire has two of the ten NHS Healthy Towns located in Bicester and Barton. The work of this programme is to adopt a place based approach to changing the health of these communities.



Active Oxfordshire is working with partners and local communities to make sure that access to physical activity and sport play a key role in the shaping and development of these Healthy New Towns. This includes prioritising active travel and ensuring walking and cycling routes are safe and accessible such as Bicester Blue Lines, Health Walks and much more.
