Local Plan consultations

During August and September 2021 several major public consultations are taking place in Oxfordshire on the way that the city and county should develop over the next 20 or 30 years. Residents are encouraged to respond online to council plans for housing, road building, environmental schemes, combatting the effects of climate change, etc.

In all cases, Oxfordshire Green Party, together with other environmental groups, considers that although the plans pay lip service to some excellent aims, these aims cannot be fulfilled because of the prime importance accorded to economic growth rather than to the wellbeing of people and planet. Despite the good intentions, the plans are not sufficient to bring about the changes that Oxfordshire - as everywhere else - badly needs.

The OGP Policy Group will be submitting responses to the consultations on behalf of the local party. But OGP is also encouraging members to send individual responses. The consultations are easy to respond to online, and you only need to answer the questions that interest you. To help, we are making the OGP responses available as we work through them. To see them click on 'Read more' below.

The OGP responses that will be shown here aren't necessarily the final versions of our submissions, as timing is tight, especially over the holiday period! They should, however, give the main points of our argument, and we will update them as they become more finished.
