June Breakfast Briefing on Unlocking Growth in Oxford and Oxfordshire

Chelgate Local and Lichfields are delighted to invite you to a breakfast briefing seminar to hear how potential growth in Oxford and Oxfordshire will be unlocked and managed in the coming years.

The speakers will discuss how the various initiatives will be brought together to deliver growth in the city and the county. The Oxford-Cambridge Arc aims to deliver one million new homes but initiatives, such as City Deal, local housing through the various local plans and the Growth Deal are set to facilitate 100,000 of those new homes by 2031.

Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, and a full networking breakfast will be provided.

Join us on Thursday 27th June, from 7:45am – 9:30am, at The Old Library Room, Oxford Town Hall.
