Oxfordshire Growth Board
Purpose of committee
The Growth Board is a joint committee of the six councils of Oxfordshire together with key strategic partners. The Board meets to discuss issues facing Oxfordshire’s future, most often in a non-decision-making capacity.
It is supported by four Advisory Sub-Groups (Environment, Housing, Infrastructure, and Oxfordshire Plan 2050), a Scrutiny Panel and a small team of officers who are tasked with delivering on elements of the Board’s work programme.
The Growth Board support team are not based at this council.
The Growth Board has its own website with full information about the Board and its related committees and working groups, their meetings, and the Growth Board’s functions and major projects.
The Oxfordshire authority which holds the Chairmanship of the Growth Board is responsible for the administration and management of the Board and its meetings.
