Oxon Growth Board Scrutiny Panel say “Ox-Cam Expressway incompatible with Zero Carbon aims.”

In a tweet, Ian Middleton, Green Party Councillor, reports that the Oxfordshire Growth Board Scrutiny Panel have “just passed a motion that the Oxcam expressway is incompatible with the aim of zero carbon. Shame there was no official representation from @Cherwellcouncil at the meeting”

This is an entirely logical and sound conclusion. We look forward to seeing the minutes of this meeting to find out which councils were represented at this meeting and to understand “what next”.

Oxfordshire Growth Board Scrutiny Panel met on 19th September. You can see the agendas of all Scrutiny Panel meetings and their minutes here.


We urgently need your help.

Your donations are needed now, to help us run the campaign and pay for political consultants and other professional experts to bring this campaign to the attention of Westminster as well as local politicians.

No Expressway Group believes there is no need for an Oxford-Cambridge Expressway, nor the over-inflated housing targets associated with it, and we will actively campaign against it and support other organisations with the same objectives. 

Our environment is a national asset which is critical for everyone’s health and well-being. We must not let it be destroyed.

Your donations help us to spread information about the Expressway, run and build support for the campaign:

  • £10 could pay for one roadside Correx poster

  • £15 could pay for one roadside poster on a wooden stake

  • £20 could pay for one A1 printed colour poster for our pagoda display

  • £35 could pay for 250 A5 printed leaflets for the campaign

  • £70 could pay for one pole and two panels for our travelling pagoda display

  • £150 could pay for one feather flag for our travelling pagoda

  • £180 could pay to run this website for one year

  • £300 could pay for a 3 minutes of an Expressway Story

  • £500 could pay for a 5 minutes of an Expressway Story

  • A greater or other amount could contribute to the cost of professional support for our campaign in general and in preparation for Planning Inspectorate hearings

Please note:

The No Expressway Group has a group bank account to which the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are signatories. The group will publish accounts on noexpressway.org each year which will be audited by an accountant from outside the NEG group.

If any funds are left at the end of the campaign, these will be donated equally between RSPB and BBOWT.
