The latest consultation has opened to give people the opportunity to have their say on The Oxfordshire Plan 2050, an innovative strategic planning framework.
Published: Friday, 30th July 2021
Oxfordshire’s county, city and district councils are working in partnership to deliver this bold and ambitious plan that will enable us to realise our vision that in 2050 the people of Oxfordshire are living in sustainable communities with a high quality of life and strong sense of community.
In early 2019, we undertook an initial consultation to ask for views on what the vision, aspirations, objectives and strategy for the Oxfordshire Plan should be.
We considered the responses we received and identified the following key themes to move forward.
- Addressing climate change
- Improving environmental quality
- Creating strong and healthy communities
- Planning for Sustainable Travel & Connectivity
- Creating jobs and providing homes
It is vital to know what you think about these themes and for you to tell us your ideas and suggestions. Your responses will be used to help shape and inform the development and implementation of the plan.
Councillor Emily Smith, Leader of Vale of White Horse District Council and Chair of the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 Member Advisory Group, said: “This is an exciting and important step and I am looking forward to hearing what the public have to say about this important document.
“The Oxfordshire Plan is a chance for all our communities to help shape our future and ensure we create opportunities for all while protecting our environment and tackling climate change.
“I hope that over the coming 10 weeks many people will take the opportunity to have their say.”
Councillor Barry Wood, Leader of Cherwell District Council, said: “If you are concerned about how best to shape the future of Oxfordshire up until 2050, please have your say.”
The consultation opens on Friday 30 July for ten weeks until Friday 8 October at www.oxfordshireopenthought.org
