Oxford has scored highly in a new ranking of the most ‘dynamic cities’ in Europe, according to Savills IM Dynamic Cities index.
While Oxford scored highly in sectors such as inclusion and inspiration, it lagged behind other cities of its size for criteria such as its current infrastructure and interconnectivity.
According to various factors including the economy, population and technology, the city was ranked 14th out of 130 cites throughout the continent. London topped the chart and elsewhere in the UK, Oxford was beaten by old rival Cambridge which came third, followed by Edinburgh in ninth.
According to the report Oxford is set to grow in influence over the coming years and is likely to become an increasingly attractive city for property investment. The new rail link from Oxford to Marylebone station as well as several new housing projects underline its ambitions to grow in size and influence.
