Oxford Street

About the area

Oxford Street, fondly known as “The Nations High Street” is home to a multitude of flagship stores for world renowned brands, along the iconic Selfridges. Bordering Marylebone to the north and Mayfair to the south, Oxford Street is a main thoroughfare in central London for public transport. Due to this, traffic management and air quality are central to all management strategies for The Street.

Recent projects

In 2018, Westminster City Council (WCC) approved plans for the Oxford Street District Transformation, focusing on traffic reduction, enhanced public realm and policies to encourage positive growth. In April 2019, WCC released its £150 million funding allocation report for the project. We are working closely with the City Council to support the project and deliver a long-term vision for the street.


Promoting the street

Throughout the year, we run a number of intitatives in partnership with our members along the Street, including the renowned Christmas Lights, and aiding the use of the street for prominent events such as Pride each year.

We manage a bespoke website for Oxford Street at www.oxfordstreet.co.uk, where you can find out more about the brands and businesses that operate on on the street, as well as upcoming events.


Management & security

The management of Oxford Street lies with Westminster City Council and New West End Company to ensure that it’s properly managed and maintained. While the City Council have responsibility for street repairs, waste collection, recycling and cleansing, New West End Company’s our own cleaning and security teams are on hand to help our members.
