CoHSAT survey quotes

What active-travel initiatives would you like to support in your local area?

Improved cycling infrastructure between rural villages that are safe and support usage by a wide demographic.

Please summarise your views on the future for transport in Oxfordshire.

It is critical that the county pays sufficient additional attention and support in developing active travel and public transport in rural areas, and that roads are improved to better serve local communities. Housing developments that create communities dependent on private road transport should not go ahead – in particular the plan to build 3000 new homes in Chalgrove airfield.
