Bad News for the Green Belt

On 17th July the Government announced its wish to review the Green Belt to the south of Oxford. This is to enable a huge estate of some 4,000 houses to be built south of Grenoble Road.

Like the County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council we believe that this is the wrong kind of development in the wrong place. We believe there are better ways of addressing the housing needs of Oxford that would preserve the Green Belt intact.

Now there is a 12-week consultation period. The Oxford Green Belt Network will use this time to make its views known to the Government.
