Bicester Garden City: Prospects and Challenges

Tuesday, 03 March 2015 10:01

CPRE Oxfordshire is holding a public meeting on Thursday 12th March to discuss the Bicester Garden City.

Bicester was recently identified by the Government as the latest site for a Garden City. But what lies behind the headline £100m funding? Will the housing be truly sustainable? What are the plans for the M40 junction? What are the details, and what opportunities and challenges lie ahead?

CPRE Oxfordshire will be bringing together local people and interested parties from across Oxfordshire and further afield, to try to find out more about the plans, and to think about how we can work together to make sure the proposed development really does deliver high standards of building, whilst minimising impacts on the surrounding countryside and rural villages.

The meeting will take place at Littlebury Hotel, Bicester, 7.00pm-9.00pm, Thursday 12th March.


7.00pm – tea/coffee served on arrival
7.30pm – Welcome by Chair – Bruce Tremayne, Deputy Chairman, CPRE Oxfordshire & Chairman, CPRE Bicester District
The Oxfordshire context – Helen Marshall, Director, CPRE Oxfordshire
Garden City Principles – Philip Ross, former Mayor of Letchworth Garden City and co-founder of the New Garden City movement
Bicester Garden City – Councillor Barry Wood, Leader, Cherwell District Council
Q & A
9.00pm – close

To register or for more details (inc. directions) go to: Eventbrite.

This event is free to attend, but we would be grateful for a donation of £3 a head to help cover the costs of refreshments and room hire.
