What Are Local Plans?

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 Issues

NNGO are campaigning for a future for Oxfordshire which meets the real needs of local people not speculator greed.

Campaigning for:

  • carefully meeting the need to house an increase in Oxfordshire's population of about 10% by 2031, more in line with the national average growth projections.
  • the right kind of houses, in the right place, for people in real need and at the right price - for rental or purchase.
  • infrastructure that is exploited to the full, but avoiding overstretch, with investment in public transport.
  • focused development, prioritising brownfield sites, respecting the views of local communities and recognising the value of our environment.
  • support for a range of sectors, including rural businesses, tied to local employment needs. Oxfordshire currently has virtually full employment.
  • sustainable development, serving the needs and interests of Oxfordshire's residents.

Campaigning against:

  • an imposed 'growth at all costs' approach that only benefits speculators.
  • 30% population growth by 2031 and housebuilding more than double any rate previously achieved. 100,000 new houses by 2031=2 new Oxfords.
  • unaffordable, inappropriate estates not co-located with jobs.
  • infrastructure pushed beyond its capacity leading to congestion, flooding, pollution and pressure on our natural resources: water, gas, minerals etc.
  • the imposition of a dreamt up 85,000 jobs by 2031, irrespective of local employment needs. Job creation needs to be more in line with national average population growth projections of 10%.
  • unsustainable development promoted by the undemocratic Local Enterprise Partnership.

Need not Greed

NNGO logo

 

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.

CPRE West Oxon's AGM will be held on:
Thursday 13th September, 7-9pm in the New Hall at Warwick Hall, Church Green, Burford, OX18 4RY.

Martin Lane will be giving a talk on the Cotswolds AONB and the proposed national park.
All very welcome to join us.

 

New population estimates from the Office of National Statistics have highlighted the inaccuracies in Oxfordshire’s housing figures.
