Ask TVoA: Cllr Barry Wood, leader, Cherwell District Council and chair, Ox-Cam Arc Leaders Group

July 27, 2021

With MHCLG launching its consultation on the long term development of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc as part of ministers’ plans to create a Spatial Framework for the area to 2050, this is the perfect moment to talk with councillor Barry Wood. In his role as leader of Cherwell District Council, and as chair of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc Leaders Group, councillor Wood is at the heart of plans to deliver transformational economic growth that will benefit the whole of the UK.

So what exactly is on his wish list? What challenges does he foresee and what partnerships is he seeking to overcome them?

Join this wide-ranging interview at 11am on 27 July for the answers to those questions and more, covering councillor Wood’s views of “good development” and the influences and passions that have driven his career and shaped his vision for this part of Oxfordshire and the wider Arc.
