Living & Working 2050

How can we shape our communities to make Oxfordshire the best place we can to live and work in?

Home to some 680,000 people and over 30,000 enterprises...

...spread over market towns and rural villages, iconic cultural places like Blenheim Palace, Oxford and its colleges, areas of outstanding beauty including the Chilterns, Cotswolds and the North Wessex Downs, our county has a diverse and wonderful mix of areas of natural beauty and world leading scientific facilities.  

Oxfordshire is rated well above the UK average for employment levels and life satisfaction ratings. Our economy is one of only three net contributors to the UK - delivering £21 billion per year of national output. 

But this success is not without its challenges. A lack of affordable homes and the need to accommodate growth whilst protecting and enhancing Oxfordshire’s special natural and historic environments are issues that will impact our lives through to 2050 and beyond.

This is why we’re asking you for your ideas.
