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 was formed in 2019, 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.
Find out more about our current members below. If you are an active travel group, and/or engaged in supporting healthy/liveable streets in Oxfordshire and you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Banbury Active Travel Supporters (BATS) is a project set up by Banbury Community Action Group (BCAG), keen to promote cycling, walking, and clean air in Banbury. We are looking for others who share our aims, to join us.
BATS wants to see safe pavements and cycle lanes provided as through routes in Banbury, so that more people can choose to leave the car at home. Fewer cars on Banbury roads will also mean cleaner air: at present, in places Banbury has some of the most polluted roads in Oxfordshire.
Abingdon Liveable Streets aims to improve our walking and cycling routes so that people can travel to school or work safely without needing to use their cars. The group is a collaboration of Abingdon Carbon Cutters, AbiBike, Abingdon Freewheeling, Abingdon Health Walks and the Town Council.
