About CoHSAT

CoHSAT is a group of voluntary and campaigning organisations working across Oxfordshire to create attractive, accessible and people-friendly streets.

We do this by encouraging efficient, active, low carbon and sustainable travel, which will reduce traffic, air pollution and noise, and enable healthy and thriving communities.

CoHSAT’s role is to amplify member and partner voices, facilitate discussion, and increase engagement on healthy streets and active travel across Oxfordshire. Read more about CoHSAT’s strategy and approach here and more about CoHSAT membership here.

CoHSAT's History

CoHSAT was formed in 2018, when several founding members recognised the need to work more collaboratively on healthy streets and active travel campaigning in Oxford.

In 2020, CoHSAT built relationships with active travel groups across the county, and supported the development of new groups in market towns.

In 2021, CoHSAT welcomed several new members representing active travel issues outside of Oxford City. CoHSAT also outlined its views on various issues in a 2021 election manifesto. Since then CoHSAT has continued to welcome new coalition members that share our values for sustainable travel and streets that are better for people.
