OxLEP supports the emerging Oxfordshire Plan as part of delivery of the Oxfordshire Housing and Growth Deal. We recognise the process considerations and challenges in taking forward a joint statutory spatial plan to examination stage. The opportunity to provide early input into shaping the plan is welcomed. Support is given to the initial 2050 vision, aspirations and objectives in the consultation document for the purpose of generating feedback and discussion. We support the emphasis in the vis

Vision for the Oxfordshire Plan The positive vision requires more local distinctiveness. It should highlight the universities and development of smart city concepts county-wide. It could specifically refer to inclusive places characterised by a visible and collaborative innovation economy turning ideas into new and growing businesses. Engagement during plan preparation would benefit from reflecting the exciting and dynamic nature of the local innovation economy. In particular there will be opp

Oxfordshire context The Oxfordshire 2050 Plan presents opportunity for an evidence base to go beyond traditional economic and demographic trend based justification of land requirements. For example, scrutiny of city – county functional and economic relationships.

Potential Spatial Scenarios The plain alternatives serve to generate feedback and discussion on the future direction and spread of development. Approaches could link change in sectors of the economy with local places and facilitate complementary and sustainable patterns of strategic employment locations. The spatial strategy should drive the spreading of the economic strengths and new technologies together with plans for new infrastructure serving communities. This can embrace a shifting geogr

Infrastructure considerations It is important to explore ambitious mobility approaches including transit for the city and nearby polycentric settlement patterns and science clusters. The plan should draw upon and support the Oxfordshire Energy Strategy and seek to reconcile distributed renewable and interactive energy systems with spatial development.

Draft Objective 10 We seek clarification on the wording of 'sustainable locations' noted in draft objective 10 and the wording noted in the Vision for the Oxfordshire Plan which also refers to 'sustainable travel options'. Does this mean sustainable in terms of developments having links to public transport and the provision of accessible transportation and transport routes or is the term sustainable in this section intending to cover the full range of environmental, social and economic issues a

Discussion Point 4 Do you agree with the commentary relating to the spatial scenarios illustrated, or do you think there are important considerations we have missed? It is not within our remit to comment on the scenarios outlined as there is no environmental context. The scenarios need to be assessed in the context of environmental evidence and the options taken forward accordingly. Until such time that the evidence base is established the opportunities and constraints of the various scenarios

Discussion point 5 Do you agree with the commentary relating to the main infrastructure issues? Are there any changes or other issues that you would like to see referred to? The Infrastructure considerations section of the document focus on traditional infrastructure issues but there is nothing included here about green and blue infrastructure or water related infrastructure. The recently prepared Oxfordshire Infrastructure Strategy noted that green infrastructure, although important to the c

Introducing the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 Aspiration 1 - Protect Environmental Quality Text Block

Draft Objectives 1 and 2 We welcome these objectives and believe that environmental assets need to be factored into the options selection when considering the strategy. However, draft objective 2 should also refer to climate change adaption and mitigation. The forthcoming revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the published Defra 25 Year Environment Plan provides significant steer and emphasis for the environmental issues that will need to be considered including climate change a
