Campaigns

Local Plans set out the big decisions on planning for the future of your community and land. They outline the long-term strategy for each planning authority. England's planning system is designed to ensure that future development is always in the public interest and stops speculative development.

The growth strategy for Oxfordshire proposes 100,000 new houses by 2031, equivalent to two new cities the size of Oxford. Plus, 85,000 new jobs and at least 200,000 more people, roughly a 30% increase in Oxfordshire's population.

Oxfordshire development

Oxfordshire's six local councils (4 districts, the city and county) have all agreed to work together to produce a Joint Statutory Spatial Plan (JSSP) for Oxfordshire.

Save Oxfordshire: No Expressway, No 300,000 houses
The Oxfordshire countryside is valuable and needlessly under threat

 

A new road is being proposed that will unleash a tidal wave of development. 300,000 houses, or 6 new cities the size of Oxford, are being planned for Oxfordshire.

 

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!
