SOUTH OXHEY INITIATIVE COMMUNITY BOARD
The South Oxhey Initiative Community Board (SOICB) has been established to promote the interests of residents of South Oxhey throughout the development.
The Board is made up of elected councillors, the regeneration partners (Countryside and Home Group) and a number of tenants, leaseholders and retailers. Being member of the Community Board you will be able to:
- Promote the interests of the South Oxhey community and help make a difference to where you live
- Have the opportunity to raise development queries working in partnership with Home Group and Countryside project team
- Receive free induction training and support that will assist you in your role on the Board
We are really keen for local people to be involved in the South Oxhey Community Board. We have recently recruited three new residents living in the South Oxhey Initiative boundary. We still have one vacancy for a resident and we are currently recruiting for that position.
If you are interested in joining the Board, you can view the catchment area maps on the right.

BECOME AN APPRENTICE
Countryside together with their partner Home Group and Three Rivers District Council have launched a construction apprenticeship programme at South Oxhey in partnership with Joe Brennan Training (JBT). The programme has been a great success. To date, the on-site apprenticeship programme has enabled two local residents to gain practical experience required to achieve professional in construction.
If you are interested in working on the South Oxhey development and would like to start a career in the construction industry, further opportunities on the site are available. We are particularly looking for finishing trades such as electricians, plumbers, decorators and carpenters but also ground workers, bricklayers and scaffolders. Our apprenticeship scheme need people who are committed to working hard and who are eager to learn.
The apprenticeship scheme trains those aged 18 and above to reach the required standard to enable the trainees to perform a skilled role. Apprentices receive guidance and support throughout their scheme duration, from before their technical studies until their ultimate qualification and employment.
The scheme also ensures apprentices are given mobility from one programme to another until the on-site qualification has been completed. To date, the partnership between Countryside and JBT has funded 56 apprentices across various sites, 85% of whom have completed the programme, qualified and secured employment.
Apprentice opportunities will be advertised via Joe Brennan Training, Ascend, notice boards, community newsletter and the Oxhey OWL page.
Contact Joe Brennan on 07976315763, or Kymberly Ashman, our Community Resident Liaison, on 07585 135029 or email Kymberly.Ashman@cpplc.com.
