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’re asking you whether our Strategic Vision is right for Oxfordshire and how we can measure its success.

The conversation will not end there so make sure to check out Open Thought regularly to find our latest engagement work.

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. Read more and get involved here

Open Thought 1

Open Thought 1 is now closed for responses but we'll be bringing you more on this when Open Thought 2 opens in 2021. You can still explore the themes of Living & Working, Connectivity, and Climate Change.
