ITEM 15:              iD: I026910

Urban Forest Strategy

The trees and vegetation that make up the urban forest provide a range of benefits such as habitat for biodiversity, carbon storage and flood protection. This strategy is for the whole city, not just City Council land and seeks to protect what we have, increase what we have, and engage communities and stakeholders in the process. The strategy has a target to increase the overall canopy cover for Oxford using the “right tree, right place” principle. The strategy highlights specific areas where there is particularly low canopy cover or where benefits can be maximised.

Food Strategy

Report status: Provisional: Decision reliant on another action or process

Development of a Countywide Food strategy, working with key partners such as Good Food Oxford, Oxfordshire County Council, Oxfordshire District Council and the Community Food system within the City.
That addresses the causes of food poverty as part of our wider anti-poverty work. This should include the following:
Taking into account:
o The National Food Strategy;
o The considerable work undertaken by this Council to address inequality and to tackle food poverty during the pandemic;
o Being a signatory to the Oxford Good Food Charter;
o The excellent work of Oxford’s voluntary sector to tackle food poverty;
o Recommendations on achieving a self-sustaining community food system and Council’s role in supporting this.

• Bringing together the views and knowledge of our food network partners to better understand the current root causes of food poverty, and a shared action plan to implement meaningful solutions.
• Tackling child food poverty by campaigning to address holiday hunger, increasing take up of free school meals and access to food larders for families with children.
• Continuing to use relationships with supermarkets to divert surplus food to those in need and minimise waste to help eliminate Oxford’s contribution to climate change by 2040 or sooner, in line with the Zero Carbon Oxford Charter and recommendations of the Citizens’ Assembly on Climate Change.
