About the Future Oxfordshire Partnership (formerly the Oxfordshire Growth Board)

The Future Oxfordshire Partnership is a joint committee of the six councils of Oxfordshire together with key strategic partners. Following an extensive public review in 2020, the Partnership has adopted a new name (formerly known as the Oxfordshire Growth Board) and a new purpose to:

  • Coordinate local efforts to manage economic, housing and infrastructure development in a way that is inclusive and maximises local social and environmental benefits;
  • Support the development of local planning policy that meets the UK Government’s stated aim of net zero carbon by 2050, and contributes towards biodiversity gain whilst embracing the changes needed for a low carbon world; and,
  • Seek to secure funding in the pursuit of these aims and oversee the delivery of related work programmes delegated to it by the joint committee’s constituent local authority members.

It does this by overseeing the delivery of projects that the councils of Oxfordshire are seeking to deliver collaboratively in the fields of economic development and strategic planning. This cooperation has helped Oxfordshire to secure over £500m of additional investment, such as through the City Deal, Housing and Growth Deal, Housing Infrastructure Fund and the Oxfordshire Rail Connectivity Study. The Future Oxfordshire Partnership also has an important role in representing Oxfordshire on matters of regional interest.

The Partnership meets six times each year to discuss issues facing Oxfordshire’s future, most often in a non-decision-making capacity. It is supported by four Advisory Sub-Groups (Infrastructure, Environment, Housing and Oxfordshire Plan 2050), a Scrutiny Panel and a small team of officers who are tasked with delivering on elements of the Partnership’s work programme.

Through this website, you can find more information about our meetings, membership and how to ask as a question. The full terms of reference for the Future Oxfordshire Partnership can be found here below.
