Oxford-Cambridge Growth Corridor and Expressway – How to get our voices heard?

The Chancellor has backed the National Infrastructure Commission’s concept of an Oxford to Cambridge ‘Growth Corridor’ of a million new houses, of which 300,000 would be in Oxfordshire. That would be equivalent to six new cities the size of Oxford; or to put it another way would more than double our present housing stock and population by 2050.

Part of the growth scheme is a new Expressway – a Motorway in all but name – from Oxford to Cambridge to “facilitate” the development.

At the moment this transformative change is being proposed without any public consultation.

Colin Butler Green – Residents Consultation

The Parish Council would like to hear the views of Adderbury residents on their proposal for a new footpath around the edge of Colin Butler Green. The suggestion is that pedestrians from the Horn Hill Road direction could walk from the existing footpath across the first entrance to Manor Road and then follow the curve around the Colin Butler Green on the new footpath. They could then cross the second entrance to Manor Road, opposite the entrance to Cross Hill House.

Should you have any comments, please email them to adderburypc@hotmail.com or ring the Clerk to the Parish Council, Theresa Goss, on 01295 710965.
