In 2022 we introduced OxPropSummit to the agenda for the Oxfordshire property market. OxProp Summit has been designed in partnership with Oxford City Council and will take a view (thus the title!) on the Oxford development pipeline. This event will complement OxPropFest (12th September) which will be held at Keble College with Awards and Dinner.

SHAPING OXFORD with Caroline Green, Chief Executive, Oxford City Council
Overview of the development pipeline in the City of Oxford over the past 12 months and the future vision for the City.

1:45 – 2:45 JOBS FOR ALL

Oxford continues to have significant economic demand and growth but access to the benefits of this growth remains unequal. How can Oxford make the move towards a more inclusive economy where the local workforce can access the benefits and utilise their skills in the city? How can positive outcomes be achieved for the local communities from this growth? More broadly, does a focus on economic growth exacerbate the housing crisis, by creating more demand?

CHAIR
Sarah Haywood, Managing Director, Advanced Oxford

PANEL
Anna Strongman, CEO, OUD (Oxford University Developments)
Tom Storey, Director, Storey Consulting (part of the Oxford North team)
Carolyn Ploszynski, Head of Regen and Economy, Oxford City Council
Liv Thomas, Graduate Surveyor, Savills and Chair of OxProp NextGen

2:45 – 3:30 REACHING NEW HEIGHTS!

The need to accommodate Oxford’s workforce has ignited debate about whether we need to build higher and with increased density, especially around the perimeters of Oxford. Is this a viable option given existing planning restrictions and heritage concerns. What should the property community be doing to engage with and influence the Local Plans?  

CHAIR

Rob Allaway, Managing Director, DevComms

PANEL
David Butler, Head of Planning, Oxford City Council
Adrian James, Managing Director, Adrian James Architects
Pete Wilder, Property Director Oxford Science Enterprises
Debbie Dance, Director, Oxford Preservation Trust

3:30 – 3:45 AFTERNOON TEA AND NETWORKING

Afternoon Tea, Networking and Opportunity to see the Pop Up Expo.

3:45 – 4:30 GREEN HERITAGE: HOW FAR CAN WE GO?

Green Heritage: How far can we go?

Cambridge’s City councillors recently made a landmark, and controversial, decision to approve the installation of solar panels on the roof of the iconic Grade I Listed King’s College Chapel. With twice the national average of listed buildings, Oxford faces similar complex decisions in order to help combat the climate crisis and meet its 2030 net zero objectives. How will new build fit into the historic environment?  Can retrofitting work in the Conservation Areas? How far is Oxford really willing – or able – to go?

CHAIR
Richard Todd, Head of Project Management & Partner Oxford, Bidwells

PANEL
Mish Tullar, Head of Corporate Strategy, Oxford City Council
Harriet Waters, Head of Sustainability, University of Oxford
Debbie Haynes, Carbon Reduction & Sustainability Manager, OX Place
Chris Pattison, Head of Planning, Bidwells Oxford

4:30 – 5:15 OXFORD IN MOTION

What is the transport vision for Oxford? How will this provide the connections to ensure local residents and visitors can move freely around the city? How will it satisfy the needs and opportunities provided by the business, education and visitor/leisure communities?

CHAIR
Veronica Reynolds, Sustainability & Community Manager, Milton Park

PANEL
Bill Cotton, Corporate Director, Environment and Place, Oxfordshire County Council
Tom Bridgman, Executive Director, Development, Oxford City Council
Luke Marion, Managing Director, Oxford Bus Company
