Oxford's Green Belt is one of the most important matters for CPRE Oxfordshire today. By safeguarding land from development, the Green Belt has for more than 50 years preserved the unique setting and character of the historic city of Oxford and prevented the uncontrolled urban sprawl sadly witnessed in so many other places.

Despite the long-standing strategy for Oxfordshire's market towns to absorb growth within the county to relieve pressures in Oxford, the 21st century has seen the Green Belt under serious threats from developments, as the city pushes for urban expansion and developers cast their covetous eyes on the open countryside around our prosperous city.

We have campaigned for decades to protect and strengthen our Green Belt and make full use of the opportunities it provides for people to appreciate the countryside right on our doorstep. It is an important and irreplaceable environmental resource that helps to promote locally grown food, supports wildlife and provides a much-loved breathing space for city dwellers.

Download our fact sheet about the Oxford Green Belt and find out why we think it's worth protecting.

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

76% of people believe the Oxford Green Belt should remain open and undeveloped. See the results of our 2015 survey of public attitudes to the Green Belt.
