Open Thought

A different approach to thinking about how we shape our county

We want your thoughts, knowledge and expertise to help plan Oxfordshire’s future.


Oxfordshire Open Thought is an open platform where you can explore and have your say on new ideas and approaches to planning for our county’s future to improve lives for all.

It doesn’t replace formal consultations and previous responses – we’re after fresh and innovative ideas and bold and aspirational solutions as we look forward.

We’ve already asked you about how we might live and work, move around and tackle climate change in the future as part of Open Thought 1. And we’ve asked you whether our Strategic Vision is right for Oxfordshire and how we can measure its success.

The conversation isn’t ending there so make sure you check out Open Thought regularly to find our latest engagement work and how you can get involved.

Our Strategic Vision

The Oxfordshire Growth Board wants to develop 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 deadline has passed to have your say but you can find out more here and check back for more updates on the Vision’s development.

Open Thought 1

Open Thought I is now closed for responses but we'll be bringing you more on this when Open Thought II opens in 2021. You can still explore the themes of Living & Working, Connectivity, and Climate Change.
