12 days of Election 2019 - is your candidate prepared to protect Oxfordshire?

Ahead of the General Election on the 12th December we've prepared 12 questions to put to your parliamentary candidates.

1          Do you have a plan for how Oxfordshire’s environment is going to be protected and enhanced?

2          Do you agree development in Oxfordshire should be based on natural growth and migration not arbitrary targets? Oxfordshire needs good quality, high density development not a wholesale transformation into urban sprawl, as proposed by the OxCam Growth Arc plan and the associated one million houses.

3          Do you agree we should scrap the carbon-hungry and expensive plans for the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway and instead develop and invest in transport strategies that reduce congestion, increase public transport and support walking and cycling?

4          Will you ensure housing densities make best use of land?

5          Do you support more affordable housing in rural areas to meet local need?

6          Do you agree we need to stop urban sprawl, the coalescence of villages and prioritise brownfield sites?

7          Will you work to create employment that reflects our county’s needs and skills?

8          Will you help strengthen neighbourhood planning so that local communities can have their say about local plans and location of development?

9          Do you agree residents should be at the heart of decision making, not unelected quangos?

10        Will you protect the cultural capital of Oxfordshire?

11        Do you recognise the importance of our environment in underpinning a healthy economy?

12        Will you Protect rural tranquillity including dark skies and dark landscapes?
