Oxfordshire needs effective infrastructure to allow its residents to live and work in a sustainable way. In our Strategic Vision for Sustainable Development in Oxfordshire we have committed to ambitious goals for improving connectivity in the county in a way that supports people's health and wellbeing, helps us towards are net zero target, and looks after our natural environment. If we are successful, by 2050 Oxfordshire will:

  • have transformed movement and connectivity within the County and beyond. There will be greater digital connectivity and physical mobility in and between places in ways that enhance environmental, social and economic wellbeing, with an emphasis on sustainable travel, including walking and cycling.
  • be a globally competitive economy which is sustainable, diverse and inclusive, generating high-quality, productive and knowledge-based employment for our communities.
  • have achieved carbon neutral status, and be accelerating towards a carbon negative future, removing more carbon than it emits each year. Energy production will be sustainable.

What we're doing

Infrastructure doesn't just refer to roads, railways and buildings - it refers to any of the structures that facilitate transportation, business and quality of life. The partnership's work on infrastructure overlaps with our work on environment, housing and planning workstreams, and has a broad reach including supporting healthy place shaping and the transition to net zero for the county.

The FOP's Infrastructure Advisory Group co-ordinates two of the workstreams towards the Net Zero Route Map and Action Plan: the roll out of Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure, and Local Area Energy Planning.

FOP also provides a forum for consultation with each of the six councils that make up the partnership on the Homes from Infrastructure (HfI) programme, which Oxfordshire County Council is responsible for the delivery of.
