Road campaign victory!
We win our case!!
On Tuesday July 18th Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) Planning Committee rejected the £300M scheme to build a new dual carriageway, new bridges and a bypass near Didcot, against the recommendation of OCC’s own officers. They voted 7 to 2 against the scheme. This is a major victory for us after 18 months of campaigning. Central to the councillors rejection were the fact that this runs against the objectives of their local transport plan – the LTCP, the conflict with their own climate action framework, and the major impacts that the scheme would have had on local villages.
