Julie Mabberley gave a Public Address to Oxfordshire County Council at their meeting on 2 April on the subject of ensuring sufficient infrastructure in accordance with the National Policy Framework.
We quote:Wantage and Grove (approximately 15 miles South East of Oxford), together form a small Market Town which, according to the 2011 census, has approximately 7600 households. The 5500 additional homes proposed by the Vale of the White Horse will mean a 72% increase in the size of the area. This will add roughly 12000 people and 8500 cars to the town.
For details of the motion (which was not discussed at the meeting) see: item 16: This Council recognises the importance of housing development being planned in a sustainable way with the infrastructure required in place at an early stage.
