The growth strategy for Oxfordshire proposes 100,000 new houses by 2031 (two cities the size of Oxford); plus 85,000 new jobs, and at least 200,000 more people, a 30% increase in our population - higher than the anticipated UK population growth of 10%.
In order to meet these top-down targets rural Oxfordshire is being sacrificed. Yet the public have not been properly consulted.
We believe there is an alternative vision for the future of Oxfordshire one that is not based on forced economic growth, but which focuses on meeting local peoples real needs, not speculator greed.
Need not Greed Oxon is a coalition of local groups and individuals who are campaigning for a future that respects the views of local people, plans for need not greed and protects the environment.
Please support the campaign and have a voice in the debate about the future of Oxfordshire.
