Petitions and Public Address

Currently council meetings are taking place in-person (not virtually) with social distancing operating in the venues.  However, members of the public who wish to speak at this meeting can attend the meeting ‘virtually’ through an online connection.  Places at the meeting are still being managed to try and respect the requirements of social distancing and while you can ask to attend the meeting in person, you are strongly encouraged to attend ‘virtually’ to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection.

 

Please also note that in line with current government guidance all attendees are strongly encouraged to take a lateral flow test in advance of the meeting.

 

Normally requests to speak at this public meeting are required by 9 am on the day preceding the published date of the meeting. However, during the current situation and to facilitate these new arrangements we are asking that requests to speak are submitted by no later than 9am four working days before the meeting i.e. 9 am on 20th September 2021. Requests to speak should be sent to graham.warrington@oxfordshire.gov.uk.  You will be contacted by the officer regarding arrangements for speaking.

 

If you ask to attend in person, the officer will also advise you regarding Covid-19 safety at the meeting.  If you are speaking ‘virtually’, you may submit a written statement of your presentation to ensure that if the technology fails, then your views can still be taken into account. A written copy of your statement can be provided no later than 9 am 2 working days before the meeting i.e. Wednesday 22nd September 2021. Written submissions should be no longer than 1 A4 sheet.

Oxford: Temple Cowley Area - Proposed Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) pdf icon PDF 3 MB

Report by Corporate Director Environment & Place (CMDHM4).

 

New Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) are being proposed across Oxford to address numerous local issues, along with helping to support the delivery of wider transport initiatives across the City and will become increasingly important if policy proposals such as demand management mechanisms e.g. traffic restrictions, or promoting higher density development in the city, are agreed.

 

On 25 April 2019 and following an informal consultation on possible additional CPZs in Oxford late 2018 the former Cabinet Member for Environment approved proceeding to formal consultation on new CPZs at Cowley Centre East, Cowley Centre West, Cowley Marsh, Headington Quarry, Hollow Way North, Lamarsh Road, Old Marston (south), Sandhills and Waterways and – subject to funding – Hollow Way South, Florence Park and Temple Cowley. Following formal consultation, CPZs at Cowley Centre East, Cowley Centre West, Cowley Marsh, Headington Quarry, Hollow Way North, Old Marston (south) and Waterways were approved and implemented in 2020 and 2021 with schemes at Lamarsh Road and Sandhills being deferred due to lower levels of support. These deferrals, together with the lower-than-expected costs for implementing the approved schemes, has enabled proceeding with formal consultation on schemes at Hollow Way South, Florence Park and Temple Cowley. This report presents consultation responses to the CPZ proposals for the Temple Cowley area.

 

The Cabinet Member for Highway Management is RECOMMENDED to approve the proposals as advertised for a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the Temple Cowley area.
