A blueprint for involving communities in the Ox-Cam Arc



Our CEO Annette Jezierska and Advisor, Prof Mark Tewdwr-Jones were invited as one of the 60 biggest thinkers in real estate & life sciences to contribute to the landmark report, Radical Capital, which aims to create a blueprint for supercharging the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.


We call for the deep involvement of communities throughout, which is imperative for the success of the region. Government has put their work on the 'Silicon Valley' of England on the backburner, to advance the levelling up agenda elsewhere in the country.


In spite of this, communities must be engaged meaningfully by the other actors in the region, and we believe that collaboration on digital engagement is the most fruitful way to achieve this at such large scales of population size, local planning authority boundaries, planning issues and timescales.
