Stop Green Belt Destruction in Oxfordshire

Stop Green Belt Destruction in Oxfordshire

We want Christ Church, registered owner of what is now being called “Land North of Bayswater Brook” (LNBB) to withdraw their application to build 1100 executive houses, to save our greenbelt, Sydlings Copse and College Pond, a site of special scientific interest.

Why is this important?

Meadows and fields from the edge of Sandhills in the east, crossing Barton, down to the Elsfield Road in the west would be lost forever to 1100 hugely expensive executive-style-homes, plus an access road to service two-three cars per household linking to Bayswater Road. Air toxicity levels are already damagingly high, and the development would add further congestion-creating traffic in what is now vital Green belt land, thus affecting the health and well-being of existing residents.

Reasons for signing

  • It would be criminal to destroy Sydlings Copse.
  • This area has a lot of history and is such an important ecological site leading to Sydlings Copse. It would be awful to concrete over this entire area
  • This is an extremely important area of farmland adjacent to Sydlings Copse and College Pond SSSI. Building here will not only destroy greenbelt land but also adversely affect water courses resulting in habitat loss for diverse species
