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 is Vice Chair of the Climate, Biiodiversity and Planning Committee and sits on the Sports and Play Committee.

 

Witney needs a strong Green voice on the County Council, which has responsibility for schools, social services, public transportation, highways, waste disposal, town and country planning. 

 

Professionally Andrew is an expert in carbon accounting, supply chains, and natural capital, including the approval and delivery of science-based targets and environmental strategies. He has worked in the sustainability field for over fifteen years.

Andrew's international experience covers hundreds of Green House Gas (GHG) emission assessments, product lifecycle, energy, waste, and water footprints, for complex global supply chains, and across a wide range of business sectors.

West Oxfordshire District Council

 

Helen Gavin

Prospective Candidate for Eynsham & Cassington

 

A Chartered Water and Environmental Manager with more than 18 years of experience in environmental and sustainability issues, covering water resources, aquatic environments, greenhouse gas emissions, and renewable energy.  She has managed multi-million pound projects and work with people from academia, industry and government.

 

Helen has lived and worked in Eynsham for the past 17 years and is passionate about ensuring people and the environment have a say in the decisions being made at a national and local level that affect us all.

Helen represents the Green Party in Eynsham and Cassington in the local elections for West Oxfordshire District Council.

Dr Helen Gavin Green Party candidate for Eynsham and Cassington

 Eynsham and Cassington face acute pressures from massive housing development and insufficient and failing infrastructure.  If elected to represent Eynsham and Cassington, she would fight to ensure development is sensitive to our area and needs, is in keeping with what local resident want, and that sustainability is central to decision making.

 

More housing = more congestion = poor air quality & less green space = public health issue!  Infrastructure should be built first, and not on the Green belt, with housing second!  New low-carbon houses should be built only after the required infrastructure has been created.

Helen is a keen cyclist and regularly cycles from Eynsham to Oxford and a supporter of the B4044 community path and added her voice to the protest against it being dropped from WODC’s A40 Improvement Scheme.  She has fought to try and ensure this scheme gets implemented for the benefit of pedestrians and cyclists

 

A proud to be a member of the Green Party because it is the only political force that is committed to creating a society based on democracy and justice, acknowledging that our climate is changing and that we need to live sustainability, within the planet’s limits. We believe that our institutions, our economy, and our society should work for everyone and for all the species on the planet - not just the rich and powerful.

 

Short term decisions like austerity hurt those who did not implement them, and just create creating big problems for the future. Rather than save money, austerity is just creating problems for the future that will need to be addressed at a much higher cost.  Only by taking into account our current and future challenges - the risks posed by the climate emergency, a growing population, and our education and housing needs -  will we be able to create a resilient future for ourselves.

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.
