Need not Greed

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.

A 'growth at all costs' policy has led to a county plan that envisages building at virtually double any previous rate and threatens to overwhelm our infrastrusture, services, landscape and communities. The growth strategy is the biggest threat to rural Oxfordshire in our history and its impact would be irreversible.

Need Not Greed is a coalition of 35 local groups dedicated to protecting Oxfordshire's rural environment, whilst recognising the development and infrastructure needs of residents. There is an alternative vision for the future of Oxfordshire: one that is not based on forced economic growth but focuses on meeting local people's real needs.
