OV Forum at Ashmolean Museum
Thursday 21st November 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Oxfordshire’s business community will debate a key area of concern and / or opportunity for the business community with a view to agreeing on some positive outcomes to be communicated to the local authorities.
This forum will focus on transport issues.
Although Oxfordshire’s transport system continues to be upgraded, it will face a major challenge to cope with the number of new homes and jobs being planned for in the county.
Public transport is currently crowded in many areas and roads are congested, especially in the peak hours; Many of our urban areas have poor air quality and climate change is an issue that we need to address; We need to undertake this change in the face of rapidly diminishing central Government funding. This means we need to identify new, innovative ways of solving transport problems and funding them. Resourcing projects, working with businesses, legislators, researchers and the public is key.
Oxfordshire Voice is a collaboration of representatives from the public and private sectors who will be working together to shape the economic future of the county by working together to overcome some of the key challenges facing the business community.
