Information about Oxfordshire Growth Board

The Growth Board is a joint committee of the six councils of Oxfordshire together with key strategic partners. The role and purpose of the Board is 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 toward 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 Growth Board also has an important role in representing Oxfordshire on matters of regional interest.

 

The Board meets six times a 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 off officers who are tasked with delivering on elements of the Board’s work programme.
