What is Oxfordshire Independent?

Oxfordshire Independent is an online publisher which is focused exclusively on the county. Its aim is to produce original, independent journalism that might otherwise go untold and to hold those in power to account.

It was founded in July 2023 by me, Nathan Briant. I've been a journalist since 2013. I moved to Oxfordshire in July 2017 to work for the Oxford Mail as its local government reporter. I moved across Oxford and to the BBC to work for its South Online team in October 2019. I left the BBC in November 2022 and then covered local government in Northamptonshire until July 2023.
