OSP Annual Report 2014 published - The partners on the OSP recognise that many issues in the city cannot be addressed by organisations working alone, but only by working in partnership.
This Annual Report is the first one to report progress and achievements against the priorities for 2013-2018.
It does not aim to capture everything that partners have done, but provides an overview of:
- Current and future economic and social trends in Oxford
- Achievements and actions in the last year on each of our four priority areas, made by the OSP working groups
- Key challenges for the next year for each of the working groups.
