Sustainable Community Strategy

'Our place, our future' is the sustainable community strategy (SCS) for South Oxfordshire to 2026. It provides an overarching vision for South Oxfordshire. It deals with difficult cross-cutting issues such as the economic future of South Oxfordshire, social exclusion and climate change. At the same time as doing this it must:

  • balance and integrate the social, economic and environmental aspects of communities in South Oxfordshire
  • meet the needs of existing and future generations
  • respect the needs of other communities in the wider region or internationally to make their own communities sustainable

The South Oxfordshire Partnership (SOP), the former local strategic partnership for the district (now known as the South Oxfordshire Networking Group), developed the strategy in consultation with public, private and voluntary, community and faith organisations and groups, and with residents. Consultation took place between the summer of 2007 and early 2009.

'Our place, our future' will also feed into the development of a key planning document known as the Core Strategy and other planning policies within the Local Development Framework. These planning policies will support implementation of the aims of the SCS.
