Cllr Andrew Prosser Witney North

Andrew was elected to the Witney Town Council for Witney North Ward in May 2019 and already has a track record as a hardworking and effective councillor. He has worked hard on issues including air quality, traffic, cycle provision, youth services and river pollution, and has successfully challenged a planning application for 110 houses off Hailey Road.

 

As well as representing the residents of Witney North at Witney Town Council Meetings, Andrew Prosser is Vice Chair of the Climate, Biiodiversity and Planning Committee and sits on the Sports and Play Committee.

 

Now Witney North needs a strong Green voice on the District Council, which has responsibility for housing and planning applications, as well as waste and recycling.

 

West Oxfordshire District Council has let down Witney North. I will challenge the 1400 houses which they supported and put into the Local plan. This area is not suitable for so many houses and we need to protect our green space.” Andrew Prosser 2021

 How Easy is to Get to the New Supermarket near the A40? 

Cllr Andrew Prosser next to A40 in Witney

Cllr. Prosser is concerned about pedestiran and cycle access to the new supermarket at Ducklington Roundabout and made a video to demonstrate the issues. 

 

Andrew said:

"Lots of people used to cycle and walk to the old Lidl store in Witney, but now the bigger store has moved across the A40 to the Ducklington roundabout, where there’s also a new hotel.

 

"So, it’s doable, but unfortunately another example of poor provision for pedestrians, cyclists, and mobility scooter users.

"No safe way to cross the roads. No lights or priority crossings points. Poor signposting and no road features to slow traffic down. I am worried about those who can’t cross quickly, particularly when cars and lights are zipping by in the dark. A job not done properly at all.

 

"As you will see from my video when I recently crossed the A40 roundabout junction past the new hotel and across to shop at the new larger Lidl supermarket for Witney, on the Ducklington side. They may be welcome additions to the town, but I’m afraid it is another example of poor provision and planning when it comes to moving pedestrians, mobility scooters and cyclists across town.

 

"If we want to reduce congestion, improve air quality, and make it safer and easier for people to get about, then we need better than this. Active travel infrastructure still feels like an afterthought, not central to planning as it should be. Such lack of planning excludes those who don’t have or can’t afford a car and can’t sprint across the road to dodge the cars."

 

 Witney Town Parks and Open Spaces Survey 

The Witney Town Council is preparing a Parks and Open Spaces Strategy and has launched a survey to let residents contribute to the discussion.  In the survey the Town Council is seeking the opinion of residents on quality of their present services and what they would like to see in the future. 
 
Witney Town Council, Sports and Play Committee member, Cllr. Andrew Prosser said:
"this is an oportunity  for Witney Residents to tell us what they want to see in the Town Council's strategy for the future of our parks and open spaces
