CPRE Oxfordshire is shocked that the City Council has increased the amount of employment space allocated in the proposed Northern Gateway Area Action Plan (AAP) by 25,000m2, above the level previously agreed by an Inspector. 

We're asking South Oxon parish councillors to reject the SHMA figures put forward in the District Council's consultation

CPRE Oxfordshire is today (Thursday 15 May) launching a new campaign – Protect Rural Oxfordshire (PRO) – to challenge the Oxfordshire Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA), which suggests that 100,000 houses are needed in Oxfordshire by 2031, up from an earlier estimate of 54,700.

Written by CPRE Oxfordshire

Please respond to the consultation by 4 April.
