No Expressway Group Petition:

 

"We demand that the Government abandons plans for an Oxford to Cambridge Expressway, which include aspirations for vast growth rates (3-6 times national average!) for cars, houses and people.  

The scale of development and urban sprawl will cause devastation to the environment, increased congestion that will harm local communities and wildlife, and a surge in air pollution that will damage our health for generations to come.  Ecosystems and habitats are already stressed, with many species in catastrophic decline.  Don’t be fooled, with this scale and type of development, ‘net zero carbon’ targets are unattainable and ‘net environmental gain’ proven unachievable.  We demand that the investment allocated to this project is put into public transport systems such as East-West Rail and its electrification instead.  

Build the railway.  Stop the expressway!"

Please join us in signing the petition to 'STOP the Ox-Cam Expresswayhere.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We truly are Stronger Together!

Best wishes
The No Expressway Group

 

Dear Hannah

Thank you for your email on 12 September 2019 about registering Steeple Claydon Parish Council as a stakeholder. We appreciate you taking the time to get in touch and for your interest in the project.

 

I'm pleased to say Steeple Claydon Parish Council is already in our stakeholder database as your parish is in the preferred B1 and B3 corridors. Our next update is likely to be about our non-statutory consultation on route options. Parish councils will have an important role to play as representatives of the local community and we'll be contacting all the relevant parish councils at the launch of the consultation.

 

The consultation will be an opportunity for people to have their say and help shape how the project is developed. We'll also consult with local communities and a wide range of stakeholders to get their feedback. 

 

Individuals can also register for updates via our webpage. After creating an account, please select updates for the Oxford to Cambridge expressway under the East of England road projects section. Our webpage is the main area to access public information and is updated periodically as the project moves forward. You may find it useful to direct Steeple Claydon councillors and residents to the webpage.

 

I hope this information is helpful. Thank you once again for contacting us and if we can be of further assistance then please do contact the Oxford to Cambridge expressway team direct by email.

 

Kind regards
