Environment & Waste Mangement

West Oxfordshire is a lovely part of the world. Our towns and countryside are valued by all of us, and by visitors all year round. Our health and that of the world depends on the actions of each of us, and your council should play a leading role. Under this Conservative Government and Council, action has slowed to mere compliance.

What West Oxfordshire Labour Will Do

We want to save the planet and secure West Oxfordshire.

Tackling the growing air pollution crisis - Currently areas of both Witney and Chipping Norton far exceed UK government targets and EU legal limits. We will promote vehicle weight restrictions in key problem areas.

Invest in electric vehicle charging points in all council car parks across West Oxfordshire.

Launch a fresh new recycling campaign and ensure all residents have sufficient waste and recycling bins that meet their household needs. This will include an urgent search for flyaway plastics recycling facilities.

Work with planners and house builders to ensure all new substantial housing developments are designed with nature in mind and incorporate wildlife friendly areas and dedicated spaces for nature.

Work with local cycling groups and other interested parties to create a safe complete cycle path network to improve cycling amenities and increase local take-up.

Provide waste disposal centres across the district, including replacing Dix Pit.
