In November 2014, we held a very successful workshop on Transport Options for Oxford. The full report, with images from the presentations, is available on the Oxford Futures website here, along with a short film of the launch of the original Oxford Futures report.
The next event in the series of workshops to discuss how Oxford should grow will be at Oxford Brookes University on Monday 2nd March and will be on Affordable Housing Options and the need not only to build more homes but also to make housing more affordable to those on lower incomes. Further details are provided below, along with a link to our eventbrite page where you can register your place.
URBED have organised a workshop in London with tram experts at UCL and the Light Rail Transit Forum and this will be taking place on Thursday 12th March, further details below.
Planning has also started for a high level symposium in the Summer, after the election, to crystallise thinking around the eight challenges set by the Civic Society a year ago:
- Set up an Oxford Futures Commission
- Develop a spatial growth plan
- Establish a Quality Review Panel
- Engage the public with a Development Forum
- Train key decision makers
- Establish competitions for key sites
- Model transport options
- Mobilise and coordinate investment
This will be run by the Oxford Strategic Partnership in conjunction with the Oxford Civic Society and may be of interest, so we shall update you with any information we receive.
We hope to see you at an event soon!
