Cllr Andrew Prosser Climate Change Lead Executive - Vote Green, Vote for Andrew Prosser

Witney North elected Andrew to the District Council in 2021, and he has served as Executive Lead for Climate Change since 2022. Andrew has led work to support local residents through the cost of living crisis. His work on river pollution and taking on developers over unsustainable housing, shows his commitment to residents.


As one of the most diligent councillors, Andrew has worked across the ward to address flooding concerns and has championed safe walking and cycling routes. 

 

Witney North was the first ward to elect a Green councillor to the District Council, in 2021. Since you elected him, Cllr Andrew Prosser has worked hard for our community, pushing for  joined-up action on planning, transport, local jobs and services.

 

Andrew is standing against housing plans that short-change residents by failing to
provide adequate infrastructure. The developer plans for 1250 new houses in
North Witney are not viable. They do not provide appropriate sewage, flooding, and traffic
infrastructure.

Green Party Councillors attendance at West Oxfordshire District Council meetings

Cllr Rosie Pearson Steers Motion to support CEE Bill through Council
(Despite Conservatives apparently directed by local MP to vote against the motion.)

On the 11th October Green Councillor Rosie Pearson Proposed a Motion to support the Climate and Ecology Bill (formerly known as the CEE BIll) as it passes through Parliament.

Rosie made an impassioned appeal to all the councillors to suport the motion to support the CEE Bill which commits the Government to develop and implement a strategy to halt and reverse the loss of biodiversity by 2030 and to take full responsibility for its carbon and ecological footprint including along both the domestic and international supply chains. 

 

We are always looking for new supporters and potential members to join in with our activities and help to get more Greens elected.

You can do that by getting involved in our campaigns and activities that highlight issues such as: 

We must address the climate and ecological emergency

The seemingly endless list of emergencies and crises created by the last 13 years of this Government's mismanagment, has not reduced the need to take urgent and radical actions to address the causes and impact of the climate and ecological emergency.
 
Putting the climate change deniers to one side, it is almost universally accepted that  the consequences of climate change will be much more severe and long lasting than the coronavirus epidemic or even Brexit. Yet the two major parties cling on to the belief that Growth will solve all our problems!
 
In the Green Party we know that by tackling the climate crisis we can also address the drivers of the economic crisis. Remove dependence upon fossil fuels, and create more jobs especially in the renewable energy sector and in retrofitting of existing homes to be more energy efficient.
 
The Green Party policies are eminently practical and would, not only ensure a radical response to the climate crisis, but also tackle social inequities and put us in a better position to address future emergencies such as the pandemic.

We need you to help us make a difference. 

 

We can build back better, but only if we put all our weight behind it and demand it!

Why not join us at one of our events and learn about what we are doing?  

 

Or if you think you can help us in any other way please don't hesitate to volunteer.
