Hazel Dawe is heavily involved in the Oxford City Farm project helping organise work parties on the site and helping negotiate the lease with the County Council. Hazel is an associate member of Florence Park Community Association and a regular user of the Community Centre. She is also a Cyclox champion for Cowley. She has given awards to the best cafes for plastic avoidance after organising a survey on plastic use in cafes around Oxfordshire.
Hazel has responded to many planning proposals around Cowley including the hotel development on Between Towns Road and the student development on Hollow Way. She opposed the William Morris Close development which would have worsened the already appalling congestion in Hollow Way. She is a member of CPRE (Council for the Protection of Rural England).
If elected Hazel will continue to support our local community groups: Florence Park Community Centre, Oxford City Farm and Flo’s the Place in the Park – the new community hub. She will also be an active advocate of fully segregated cycle routes in the City. She will advocate preserving our green spaces whilst tackling the housing crisis by providing truly affordable, energy efficient housing on the many brown field sites in Oxford.
