Friends of Boars Hill

Welcome to the

Friends of Boars Hill

This is a group of local residents who are committed to nurturing and growing this hallowed spot in Oxfordshire for future and current generations to enjoy.  We love Boars Hill for its peace and beauty; its countryside and sense of openness.  Boars Hill is a vibrant community, always changing and improving within the character of the area.

Our current focus is on the specific planning proposals being considered at the old Open University site which we see threatening that character without any sympathy for or real understanding of the needs of local residents.

Boars Hill has long had to stand up for the Green Belt and the contribution that Boars Hill makes to all of Oxfordshire:


Recently, Peking University HSBC Business School has purchased Foxcombe Hall and its grounds. They aim extensively to develop the site, drawing on the Oxford name and creating a large, commercial venture.  The character of the Hill could be fundamentally changed by how this development takes place.  We believe that we must protect the Green Belt and the local environment for the future as those before have done for us.


We are keen that Boars Hill remain a safe, rural and welcoming community.
