Don’t miss the chance to have your say!
17 August, 2021

There are still two weeks left to have your say on major future infrastructure plans for Oxfordshire.

We need you to tell us what you think of the Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy (OxIS) which provides a framework for Oxfordshire County Council, Oxfordshire’s five planning authorities and key partners to deliver a sustainable, clean, and healthy future for everyone in the county up to 2040.

The OxIS consultation is open until 31st August. It is asking the public to give their views on which of the five themes they feel are most important – environment, health, place-shaping, productivity, and connectivity to planning for infrastructure improvements.   We need to know what you think on this and other aspects of the strategy and if there is anything you feel we have missed.

Cllr Liz Leffman, Leader of Oxfordshire County Council and Chair of the Oxfordshire Growth Board Infrastructure Advisory Group said: “The new Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy (OxIS) is a key piece of work for the future of the whole county.

“Infrastructure is more than just transport. It includes other vital services such as environment, education, sport and leisure, digital connectivity, energy, and healthcare.

“Please don’t miss the opportunity to take part and have your say.”

The OxIS consultation is taking place alongside a 10-week consultation for the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 – a long-term spatial plan that will set the framework for future planning decisions about housing and infrastructure needs. Subject to final approval by the City and District councils.

There are clear links between the two, with OxIS setting out how we aim to prioritise and deliver against the important infrastructure strand of the Oxfordshire Plan 2050, and the public is encouraged to take part in both consultations.
