The Oxford to Cambridge Arc (the Arc) is a HM Government initiative that supports collaboration across the county areas of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. The Arc is a world leading economic area, containing some of the world’s greatest and most internationally recognisable centres of learning, alongside a network of cutting-edge science parks, research institutions and businesses. Realising the potential of the Arc should deliver more higher quality jobs for existing communities and future residents, as well as encouraging international investment and exports to benefit both local businesses and the national economy.

The Arc consists of working Groups made up of strategic leaders from Local Authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships, Universities and Local Nature Partnerships, working collaboratively across geographical, political and thematic boundaries.

The Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy (OxIS) is an Future Oxfordshire Partnership commissioned project involving all six Oxfordshire Local Authorities. Its purpose is to identify, map and prioritise Oxfordshire’s infrastructure requirements to 2040 and beyond.

As part of the Housing and Growth Deal agreed in 2018, there is a commitment to update OxIS. An OxIS Stage 1 report has now been completed, and this was considered at the Future Oxfordshire Partnership meeting on 25th January. The Stage 1 report provides an up to date infrastructure picture that complements adopted local plans. Importantly, it also provides a new framework in which to consider infrastructure priorities to 2040. It is proposed to build on this with a Stage 2 report which will complement and support the new Oxfordshire Plan.

The original OxIS was approved by the Future Oxfordshire Partnership (formerly known as the Oxfordshire Growth Board) in Autumn 2017.

The Future Oxfordshire Partnership has developed a Strategic Vision for Oxfordshire that sets out our ambition for the county and puts us on the right path for long-term change so that we can secure the best possible future for Oxfordshire's residents. The Vision will be used to help create an agreed set of long-term, strategic economic, infrastructure and environmental priorities designed to deliver the outcomes that local people want. This will help us create the kind of places that people want and ensure we are investing in the right way

The Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership brings together over a hundred organisations – employers, business, education, community groups and local government.

We are working together because Oxford is the second most unequal place in the UK, in terms of income, housing affordability and life expectancy. Education attainment is below average affecting all generations. These problems extend across the whole of Oxfordshire.

We are working to create opportunities for all people in Oxfordshire, making use of everyone’s potential, so that we can all benefit from Oxfordshire’s success. Our aim is to create an environment and communities that can adapt to change, a region that is resilient in the face of shocks in the economy and a workforce that responds to different needs and different kinds of work in the future.

We are a county-wide group, working to share knowledge, expertise and resources to address some of our greatest challenges. This is not a short-term initiative, but a long term endeavour. Our vision is an Oxfordshire that creates opportunities and benefits for all communities and people within our region.

To support the objective in the Strategic Vision and the corporate plans of Oxfordshire’s councils to achieve a net zero Oxfordshire, the Future Oxfordshire Partnership commissioned the development of a route map and action plan for the county. Building on existing work, such as Pathways to a Net Zero Carbon Oxfordshire (PaZCO) and the Zero Carbon Oxford Partnership (ZCOP), the Route Map and Action Plan identifies joint actions that the Oxfordshire local authorities can take together to provide a catalyst for positive action to achieve net zero across the region.
