Oxfordshire Growth Board (joint statutory committee)

This was first set up in September 2014. In March 2018 it adopted new terms of reference and a revised remit.

The Growth Board is a joint Executive committee of the six councils of Oxfordshire together with key strategic partners. It has been set up to facilitate and enable joint working on economic development, strategic planning and growth. It does this by overseeing the delivery of projects that the councils of Oxfordshire are seeking to deliver collaboratively in the fields of economic development and strategic planning. It also oversees all the projects agreed in the City Deal and Local Growth Deals that fall to the councils, working collaboratively, to deliver and has an overall responsibility to manage these programmes of work alongside the Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP). It also advises on matters of collective interest, seeks agreement on local priorities and influences relevant local, regional and national bodies

The Growth Board has its own website with information about the Board, dates and papers for the Board’s meetings, and news items about the Growth Board’s functions and major projects.

Membership: One Executive member of each of the six local authorities in Oxfordshire; plus non-voting co-optees.

Chairing: The Board elects its chairman and vice-chairman each year, usually changing over on 1 July and rotating round the different authorities.

Agendas and papers: published on the chairing authority’s website and (from 2015) on the Growth Board website
