‘Oxfordshire Plan 2050 – why the business voice needs to be heard’

The Oxfordshire Plan 2050 will trigger vital next steps for the county’s future across multiple key areas, particularly following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's critical for businesses to understand and input into the Plan, ensuring they have confidence that there will be plenty of good well-paid jobs, that we are able to preserve the history and heritage that draws millions of people each year to Oxfordshire, and maintain our environment.

OxLEP is asking Oxfordshire businesses to join them for an online Q&A event on why it’s vital that the county’s business community engages with the plan.
