What is Open Thought?

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 want to tap into the wealth of knowledge and expertise within our communities to help to find solutions to the challenges facing us all in the future.

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 I, which is helping to shape the Oxfordshire Plan 2050. And we’ve asked you whether our Strategic Vision is right for Oxfordshire and how we can measure its success.

The conversation will not end there. We recognise these discussions go further and may send us in new and exciting directions. So Open Thought will constantly evolve, and we’d encourage you to check back regularly and join in with the latest conversation.
