Oxfordshire Plan 2050
The next public consultation (Regulation 18 Part 2) for the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 launches on Friday 30 July 2021 and will be open for 10 weeks. It will take place via the Oxfordshire Open Thought website.
Oxfordshire is a vibrant, dynamic county that blends the historic such as Blenheim Palace with the cutting edge such as the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus. Its economy is one of the best performing in the country, while it consistently ranks high for quality of life and remains the most rural county in the South-East.
We want to keep Oxfordshire a world leader in technology and innovation, ensure there are plenty of good well-paid jobs, preserve the history and heritage that draws millions of tourists each year, and give our children and grandchildren the opportunity to own homes in the county we love, while maintaining the amazing environment we live in.
As part of the Housing & Growth Deal secured by the Oxfordshire Growth Board, the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 is a strategic planning document that aims to set out how to achieve this by listening to residents about what is important to them and their aspirations, and setting out how and where is best to deliver these for a better quality of life for all.
