A strategic vision for Oxfordshire is being prepared with the aim of improving the lives of all in the county and we want your views to make sure it delivers what is most important to you.
The Vision sets out our ambition for the county and lays the foundations to put us on the right path for positive change.
It will be used to help create an agreed set of long-term, strategic economic, infrastructure and environmental priorities designed to deliver the outcomes that local people want.
You’re invited to give your thoughts on whether the outcomes proposed – and the definition of good growth and set of guiding principles that underpin them – are the right ones for Oxfordshire.
We also want to know how we can measure the Vision’s progress, how far we should aim and how fast we should try to reach our targets.
You can give your thoughts via the Oxfordshire Open Thought website at www.oxfordshireopenthought.
The engagement period ends on January 3, 2021.
Your responses will help shape the final draft Strategic Vision, which will then go before the Growth Board early next year for endorsement.
The Growth Board will ask, and work with, those preparing relevant strategic-level plans and programmes – such as the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 and the Oxfordshire Industrial Strategy – to consider how their work will deliver against this Strategic Vision.
This collective approach will better position Oxfordshire to influence the priorities of other relevant organisations.
