What is the Oxford-Cambridge ‘Growth Corridor’?

The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) has backed the concept of an Oxford to Cambridge ‘Growth Corridor’.

The Growth Corridor or ‘OxMKCam Arc’ stretching from Oxford via Milton Keynes to Cambridge is to deliver 1 million new houses and 700,000 additional jobs in the area (to justify the houses) by 2050.

Current housing stock in the 'Arc' amounts to 1.54 million, so an uplift of 1 million is an overall increase of 70%.

 

CPRE is campaigning to save the Oxford Green Belt north of the City and protect the rural villages in south Cherwell.

Cherwell District Council wants to build almost 4,000 houses on the Green Belt, between north Oxford and Kidlington and between Kidlington, Yarnton and Begbroke.

If the Council's Local Plan is adopted, it will mean the obliteration of the 'Kidlington Gap' and the coalescence of the rural vilages of Yarnton and Begbroke with Kidlington, creating a massive urban extension north of the City.

The Oxford Green Belt is under threat as never before - we need your help to protect it for future generations!
