CPRE response to the OxCam Vision consultation, 2021

In our response to this consultation, we expressed major concerns about the Arc’s growth ambitions (which contradict plans to ‘level up’ the north and Midlands), warning that the growth won’t be sustainable and that local democracy is at risk in the affected areas.

We also identified seven priorities that we want to see the Arc Vision commit to including unequivocal, measurable policies to tackle the climate and nature emergencies, protection and restoration of landscapes, and industrial landscapes characterised by warehouses, surface car parks and brownfield sites should be transformed to incorporate renewable energy, green infrastructure and reduced car dependence.

Our full response covers these areas in far more depth, with reference to the impact on the climate crisis, local people and farming livelihoods.
