The Green Party works with CPRE to help protect rural England. In our manifesto we want to build better transport networks which also encompass rural cycling, bus routes and better joined up railway links which means less reliance on cars.
We are also well aware of the creeping inappropriate housing developments across Oxfordshire which are being fought against in many villages. Housing is needed for homes and not investment.
I will always work to protect the Green belt. There are already many brownfield locations where housing could be located. It’s time we stopped selling off rural locations to property developers who simply want to be able to charge a premium for a view of the countryside they then want to gobble up for profit.
