Barton Community

Introduction to Barton

Built in 1946, the estate was originally developed to provide social housing for residents of Oxford. A further 880 new homes are planned for Barton in the next 5 years.

About 5,000 people currently live in Barton. A further 3,000 new people are likely to move in to the area as a result of the new development

According to the Indices of Multiple Deprivation data, Barton is one of the most deprived areas in Oxford and England as a whole. Barton is a very close knit community and is appreciated locally as a good place to live.
