Work started yesterday on the planned new Barton West housing estate. Why does Oxford City Council need to build tens of thousands more homes? Why does every town in the country need to build tens of thousands of new homes? Who is going to live in them?
This area of the by-pass is adjacent to Foxwell Drive where the council wants to force through a link road, against the wishes of the residents there. Typical of the way that mega new housing schemes erode the quality of life for other people.
