Campaigners lobbying to bridge Oxfordshire infrastructure gap

Campaigners lobbying to bridge Oxfordshire infrastructure gap

Campaigners are lobbying for a new bridge to be built to cope with extra traffic predicted to be brought by a new influx of those looking for property for sale in Oxfordshire

The region is set to undergo a regional development plan for the next 15 years. This will see around 10,000 new homes built, including about 9,000 homes in the Didcot area.

It is residents in the Didcot area who are campaigning for a bridge to cross the River Thames and ease the expected rise in traffic in and around the region. The calls come as part of plans to allow local residents to have their say before plans for homes are finalised. 

A spokesman for South Oxfordshire District Council told the Oxford Mail: “The policies in the core strategy, which will be tested this month by an independent planning inspector, are designed to ensure that a range of infrastructure improvements and new facilities are delivered."

The South Oxfordshire Core Strategy is designed to help implement the changes to the Oxfordshire region up until 2026.
