West Oxfordshire communities to benefit from vibrant vision for the County
A future vision for residents and communities of Oxfordshire, including ambitious carbon reduction, physical and mental health, housing and education plans has been approved by the District Council Cabinet today.
The Strategic Vision for Oxfordshire, developed by the Oxfordshire Growth Board, is a major commitment to building a more sustainable, biodiverse, economically prosperous and inclusive county by 2050.
Giles Hughes, Chief Executive of West Oxfordshire District Council, said: “This plan sets out an exciting vision for the future of communities in Oxfordshire. It’s a picture of a happier population with better physical and mental health.
“Young people need to feel confident, positive and excited about their future and that means providing high quality education and jobs that contribute to a world class economy.
“The plan will be at the centre of all of the council’s decision making, ensuring that everything we do considers the impact on future generations.”
Significantly, consultation on the Vision involved engaging with young people through social media and college-based workshops.
The Oxfordshire Growth Board comprises the six Oxfordshire councils and key strategic partners.
