Westminster Social Policy Forum

Developing the Cambridge - Milton Keynes - Oxford Corridor: infrastructure, governance and economic growth

December 2017


Following publication of the National Infrastructure Commission's final report on the Cambridge - Milton Keynes - Oxford Corridor Partnering for Prosperity, this seminar assessed its recommendations and potential priorities for implementation.


Delegates considered logistical issues for increasing transport capability, with a focus on the East West rail link and Oxford to Cambridge Expressway projects, as well as measures to be taken to meet the need for housing, with the Chancellor announcing plans to build 100,000 new homes in Oxfordshire by 2031 in the Budget.


It was also an opportunity for key stakeholders to discuss priorities for developing an integrated strategic plan for the Cambridge - Milton Keynes - Oxford Corridor to support economic growth.


The seminar brought policymakers together with leaders from business and local government, housing and infrastructure developers, environmental groups, planning consultancies and lawyers, universities and others with an interest in these major projects.
