Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy

The Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy (OxIS) is an Oxfordshire Growth Board commissioned project involving all six Oxfordshire Local Authorities. Its purpose is to identify, map and rank Oxfordshire’s infrastructure requirements to 2040 and beyond. 

The emerging strategy is informed by a variety of strategic documents including council Local Plans. Statutory organisations, infrastructure and service providers, including Health, Emergency Services, Utility and Green Infrastructure providers, are also inputting into its development.

 OxIS will provide Oxfordshire with a common platform to:

  • Set out the core projects and investment required to ensure Oxfordshire can continue to grow sustainably and successfully.
  • Strengthen our justification and evidence for securing funding, e.g. from strategic development sites or in business case development for external funding.
  • Promote the Oxfordshire ‘brand’ within the England’s Economic Heartland (EEH) as well as within the sub-national, national and international contexts.
  • Develop the attractiveness of Oxfordshire as a business investment location.
  • Facilitate informed dialogue with communities, developers and key stakeholders on the growth planned and the challenges and opportunities this brings.
  • Deliver sustainable development in Oxfordshire, for both housing and employment, by identifying the infrastructure requirements to support it.
