Oxford Growth Board Publishes Plan of Sites to be Removed from Green Belt

Oxford Mail 

Just 1% of the Oxford Green Belt, 2-3% is the norm in the home counties.  Peanuts, and the reason its Peanuts is the GB is so small so a lot of growth is pushed outside teh Green Belt chugging out carbon. The Green Green Councillors have a clear choice, if they want zero Carbon growth they will have to push more of the growth inside the Oxford GB. If you doubt that lets see some modelling to show the real options.   Oxon is noe procuring a new Oxfordshire Strategic Model (OSM) there is now reason why it cant include carbon emissions (like the new version ofn Saturn does), so cllrs will you even look at options the evidence points you towards?  If you don’t the Oxfordshire joint plan is going nowhere.

  1. This is “only” a map of the Growth Deal allocations, i.e., the 100,000 homes in existing adopted (and draft) Local Plans. It doesn’t show any of the proposed GB allocation within Oxford City’s Draft Plan (only around 18 ha).
    A Lib Dem now chairs the Oxford Growth Board; we’ll need to see if that brings any change.
