Oxford Central Conservation Area Consultation

Oxford City Council held a long overdue review of Oxford Central’s conservation area, whcich ended on 26th October.

The Government acceptance of recommendations from the National Infrastructure Commission to develop the Oxford-Cambridge Arc despite no formal public consultation, environmental assessment or parliamentary inquiry having taken place, is a ‘devastating blow for local democracy and the countryside’, says CPRE.

27,000 hectares of farmland and woodland threatened by Oxford-Cambridge Arc, according to CPRE analysis

The Government is set to accept a recommendation from the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), this Monday (29 October), to build 1 million new homes between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge.

The Oxford North project, previously known as the Oxford Gateway, is proposed to be built on 64 acres of land between Wolvercote roundabout, the A34 and the Peartree roundabout.

Thanks to an initiative by CPRE Oxfordshire communities throughout the county have been inspired to make a film celebrating their local area and explaining why it needs protecting from development.

Thames Water has been forced into higher leakage reduction targets, but says the Abingdon reservoir is now needed even sooner than it thought before. Consultation closes 28 November.
