Please find information relating to the Oxford’s Economic Strategy and Delivery Plan, which has just been launched for consultation until mid-January.
We would be grateful to hear your views, so please do complete the survey online and/or attend workshops to inform the consultation, especially on the inclusive Economy pillar of the strategy.
Oxford’s Draft Economic Strategy outlines Oxford City Council and Oxford Economic Growth Board partners’ proposed approach to economic development in the city. It proposes a shared commitment to deliver existing development projects and new initiatives in ways which support the transition to an inclusive, global, zero carbon economy. These three themes each contain a set of ‘Guiding Principles’, to be delivered through projects and initiatives over the first 5 years of this ten-year strategy. These seek to promote new opportunities for businesses and residents as we recover following the Pandemic recession.
Despite this ambition, Oxford City Council and its partners face choices on how to deploy our available resources on new and existing projects. So we’ll need to prioritise efforts over the short, medium and long term. Your views will be essential in helping us to prioritise. Once agreed, we hope these actions will help provide a foundation for Oxford to move towards an inclusive, global and zero Carbon city economy.
We would be grateful if you could take part in the workshop, which will take place online, next Tuesday 14 December from 12 -2pm. Once you have registered your interest in attending, we will share more details, including the Webinar link. You are also encouraged to read the draft strategy and take part in the consultation here (you will find the strategy documents at the bottom of the page): www.oxford.gov.uk/economic-strategy
There will also be a Joint Oxford Economic Strategy and City Centre Action Plan Workshop: Wednesday 12 January 2022 12 – 2pm. Places are limited, so if you would like to attend either event please email: email@example.com
