In 2018 The art work commissioned by Littlemore’s Parish Council (using £17,000 provided by Oxford City Council to offset the environmental impact of planning developments in the area) will provide a rest area on the village green: the Parish Council’s steering group wanted something that was both visually attractive and functional. It will also reflect Littlemore’s diverse historical past. The chosen artist, Joshua Rose was a former pupil of Peers School with a specialism in wooden structures. Please see Littlemore Local Issue 419 for more informationIn June 2014 Parish Council commissioned Josh Rose a local artist and former pupil of Peers School (now The Oxford Academy), to develop and produce a piece of community art work. Josh extensively consulted with local groups and held workshops with local school children to develop the design.
In 2008 Littlemore Parish Council received £17,000 from Oxford City Council. This 106 money came from the housing development on the former Beenhams site (Astrop Way). Conditions on the money meant that the sum had to be spent on a ‘Community Art Project’ in the vicinity of the original development.
