Petition to Protect Rural Oxfordshire from Unsustainable Development

CPRE Oxfordshire Petition LogoCPRE Oxfordshire and ROAR – the Rural Oxfordshire Action Rally, are petitioning Secretary of State Eric Pickles and local MPs to protect rural Oxfordshire from unsustainable development.

We believe current planning rules are unfairly penalising particular villages and greenfield sites, a situation which is likely to get worse with the proposed 40% increase in housing in Oxfordshire by 2031. Whilst many would welcome more affordable housing for local people, developers are frequently bringing forward large and inappropriate developments that threaten to swamp existing communities and infrastructure. Unless we stand together, the rural nature and beautiful countryside of Oxfordshire will be at risk.

By signing our e-petition you can help us to persuade our local MPs to protect rural Oxfordshire.

Please add your signature and make your voice heard!
