Following the ‘informal’ consultation carried out in November/December 2018 (for details click here) regarding the proposal to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) within the Headington Quarry area, Oxford City Council are consulting our views on the proposal to introduce a new ‘minimum impact’ (i.e. low signage) CPZ for the area. The proposals are being put forward to help address the local problems associated with commuter parking and overflow parking from adjacent residents parking areas.
This proposal creates a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) with operational hours for the Zone for Residents Permit Parking covering 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday only, with some permitted 2-hour time limited shared use parking.
Residents permits will be available for residents, but will be limited to one per resident with a maximum of two permits per property of the following roads: Bankside, Beaumont Road, Chequers Place, Cooper Place, Coppock Close, Gladstone Road, Green Road (on the western side of the A4142 Oxford Eastern Bypass), New Cross Road, Pitts Road, Quarry High Street, Quarry Hollow, Quarry School Place, Spring Lane, Toot Hill Butts and Trinity Road.
Additional waiting restrictions ‘prohibition of waiting at any time’ (double yellow lines) are proposed in the following roads: •Beaumont Road, Cooper Place, Coppock Close, *Eastern Bypass service road, Gladstone Road, Green Road, New Cross Road, Pitts Road, Quarry High Street, Quarry Hollow, Quarry School Place, Spring Lane, *Toot Hill Butts and Trinity Road (the proposed double yellow line restriction will also replace the existing no waiting 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday in some roads). Further details can be found in the attached documentation.
In light of this, the following consultation documents can be found on the Council’s consultation pages:
- Public Notice,
- Consultation Plan,
- NOTE – Statement of Reasons & Draft Traffic Regulation Order(s) will follow separately on receipt from OCC Legal Services.
The proposed Traffic Regulation Orders are scheduled to be advertised in the Oxford Times today, Thursday 01st October 2020, with details also available to view on the Council’s consultation pages,
As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal should be submitted by Friday 30th October 2020. (Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting due to take place on Thursday 19 November 2020 at 10am).
