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:
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 each 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 of officers who are tasked with delivering on elements of the Board’s work programme. The Board’s work is guided by an overarching Strategic Vision which will be published in 2021.
