raised of £5,000 target by 58 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,477 to mount a legal challenge to the Cherwell plan to build 2,500 houses on Green Belt land in and around Begbroke and Yarnton.

    Funded on Saturday, 5th December 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We’ve reached the final stage in our exhaustive – and so far, unsuccessful – battle to stop Cherwell District Council building 2,500 houses around Begbroke and Yarnton, closing Sandy Lane in the process.

    The Government Inspector has now released his final Report on the plan for consideration and almost inevitable adoption by the Council, probably in August.

    This follows the sham consultation process, during which our concerns have been blithely ignored, despite ‘unprecedented’ opposition (the council’s own words) to the plan. Begbroke and Yarnton Greenbelt Campaign (BYG) and Cherwell Development Watch Alliance (CDWA) mounted expert evidence - funded by our parish councils and residents - demonstrating why the Plan is not sound.

    This is a bad development Plan. Our last chance to stop it is in the courts. For that we need money. Both village parish councils have again kindly voted us significant sums, but we need more.

    The plan will:

    • Destroy the distinct identities of our two historic villages, merging them into one conurbation nearly three times their current size;

    • Snarl up the traffic on the A44, to and from Oxford;

    • Sever Begbroke and Yarnton from Kidlington and its services;

    • Build exclusive houses for university staff and London commuters on our local Green Belt, providing very little, if anything, for the local community.

    If you would like to donate towards this final and expensive attempt to protect and preserve our two communities please do so using this JustGiving page.
