News: Eynsham Smart and Fair Futures

LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire) is one of the UK’s most ambitious, wide-ranging and innovative energy trials, seeking to accelerate the UK’s transition to a zero-carbon energy system.

The Eynsham Smart and Fair Neighbourhood trial is aiming to develop a Zero Carbon Energy Action Plan for the Eynsham primary substation area as well as develop plans for its long-term governance structure.

The Eynsham area has a huge amount of new housing development in the works. There are 2,200 new homes planned plus a business park and park and ride in the area north of the village now named ‘Salt Cross’ (formerly Oxfordshire Cotswold Garden Village). A further 1,000 homes are to be built in the West Eynsham Strategic Development Area.

These new developments are driving a local ambition to develop zero carbon energy plans.
