Digging deeper

Oxfordshire’s sands and gravels are an enormously valuable. But extracting minerals is such a dirty business that there have to be limits and carefully made plans to minimise disruption and misery for local residents.

What we think about transport policy

We all need to get from A to B. And sometimes it feels like we're all trying to get from A to B at the same time. We think transport policy needs to be more 'joined up' and to focus on public transport - especially rail.

Rail matters

Generally we support the expansion and extension of the rail network, which with careful planning will have a huge and positive impact on Oxfordshire.

What we think about rail

We want to see a railway renaissance, with an expansion of the network, more passengers and freight. Expansion must be planned carefully to remain affordable, safeguard the countryside and tackle car dependence and rising carbon emissions.

We care about roads

Many of Oxfordshire's roads are chronically, dangerously choked but people have few alternatives but to use them.

Roads in Oxfordshire

Many of Oxfordshire's main roads are choked and our rural roads are busier and more dangerous than ever. The answer is not to build more roads and tarmac over yet more of our countryside. Society and transport planners need to look for appropriate alternatives.

Busy Oxfordshire skies

In Oxfordshire, we may not have a Heathrow, a Gatwick or a Stanstead, but we do have a major international airport - RAF Brize Norton - and a local airport at Kidlington.

What we think about aviation

Air traffic accounts for 10% of the UK’s contribution to climate change. Aircraft noise disrupts the tranquillity of the countryside. The land around airports turn into whopping car parks and sprawling developments that eat into the surrounding countryside.

Housing matters

In Oxfordshire more than half of us live in small towns or villages. We need to plan carefully, appropriately and wisely to build the homes we need.

We care about housing

With a growing population there is ever more pressure to build houses. Everyone deserves a decent place to live. With a little imagination we can have both the homes we need and the countryside we cherish.
