A strategic vision for the county has been agreed by all Oxfordshire’s local authorities.

Oxfordshire’s Strategic Vision for Long-Term Sustainable Development sets out what future growth in Oxfordshire should look like based on improving social, environmental and economic wellbeing for all.

It prioritises tackling climate change and reflects local people’s opinions and priorities as given through a range of engagement exercises.

The Vision provides a number of shared ambitions that reflect the priorities of the county, underpinned by a definition of ‘good growth’ and a set of Guiding Principles.

Among the ambitions are making Oxfordshire not just carbon neutral by 2040 but moving towards carbon negative, being the first generation to leave the natural environment in a better state than that in which we found it, and improving the overall wellbeing of the population.

Under the Vision, Oxfordshire’s globally competitive economy will be sustainable, diverse and inclusive – creating a more equal county; there will be flourishing, diverse and vibrant communities; and there will be greater connectivity – both digitally and between places with a focus on sustainable and active travel.

Now the strategic vision has been agreed, it will not replace or set the specific vision for any individual communities or partner organisations but will act as a framework for future plans and strategies for Oxfordshire, such as the Oxfordshire Plan 2050.
