ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
The Save Port Meadow campaign is a community campaign, which got going in Dec 2012 in response to the University of Oxford’s Port Meadow flats development, on Roger Dudman Way by the allotments. There is a core group of individuals from across Oxford running the campaign, with the help of several volunteers.The Campaign group has partnered with The Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (Oxfordshire) they have the experience to take on legal challenges to misguided planning processes such as this one, and as a registered charity, they receive and manage all donations directly.The Campaign is sympathetic to the extreme housing pressures in Oxford, and not against housing and accommodation development in the City. But there has to be a balance between finding the answers to that, and protecting Oxford’s unique and special heritage, to which Port Meadow is central. Both University and City Council have failed here. The Port Meadow flats are simply a grotesque mistake, they should not have been put there. Everyone knows it.The Campaign has had widespread support so far. Several thousand people signed our initial petition (now closed). Several hundred have signed up to get regular updates, and have got involved, attended meetings, given money, taken action and volunteered time. Many members of the University included.
