Changes to Station Car Park - Monday 25th September 2017

The current car park at the east end of Foxhall will close on Monday 25 September 2017.  GWR  have built a temporary car park on site.  It does not have as many spaces.  There is a reduction of around 100 spaces. 

GWR have therefore taken some space at Didcot Town Football Club, a fifteen-minute walk away.   The contract with the Club, does not allow for ad hoc daily parking and anyone using the alternative site needs to have a season ticket.  To encourage existing season ticket holders to switch they are offering them 12 months free parking (a saving of around £800). They are also offering customers without season tickets the option of buying a season ticket for £250 for the year, which is a saving of around £750.  This will free up 95 spaces at the station. 

The work on the MSCP will take 12 months to complete; it is jointly funded by OxLEP and will mean they can double car parking space at the station to 1800 spaces.  It will mean they can manage the additional demand for rail services that the new trains and improved timetable will bring.

Welcome to Didcot Town Council

Didcot is the largest town in South Oxfordshire with a population of just over 25,000 at the last Census in 2011.  As the town is designated as a growth town, the population continues to increase.

Didcot Town Council is a “local council”, a type of local authority so legislation governs what we do and how we operate.

The Town Council provides a range of services to the people of Didcot.  We have 21 councillors who make most decisions about what we do at formal committee meetings.

On these pages you can find out more about our parks, lakes and play areas.  You can also find out about meetings of the full Council, committees, councillors and what we spend money on.

The Town Council office is located inside Didcot Civic Hall which is on the corner of Broadway and Britwell Road.

There is a car park at the Civic Hall comprising of 98 standing spaces and 7 disabled bays.
