A40 Transport Model License Agreement pdf icon PDF 105 KB

Forward Plan Ref: 2019/150

Contact: Chanika Farmer, Transport Development Control Lead – Cherwell, West Oxfordshire and Oxford Tel: 07557 082590

 

Report by Director for Planning & Place (CMDE4).

 

The report discusses the licensing of the A40 VISSIM Model to 3rd parties.

 

Oxfordshire County Council commissioned Wood PLC to construct a VISSIM transport model for the A40 corridor.  The intellectual property rights in the developed model are owned by the council.

 

The A40 VISSIM Model models the existing conditions and expected future growth including the West Eynsham and Oxfordshire Cotswold Garden Village allocated sites. The model was initially designed to help OCC assess the A40 corridor and help unlock growth in Oxfordshire. Whilst not used for the Eynsham Park & Ride site due to time constraints, the model will help to inform the Eynsham Area Action Plan (AAP) and the subsequent planning applications.

 

It is proposed that the A40 VISSIM model be licensed to transport consultants on a non-exclusive basis in return for a one-off license fee equal to 25% of OCC’s development costs.

 

The license agreement will enable the transport consultant, using the A40 VISSIM model, to assess the impact of the planning application and fully mitigate any impact of the proposals.

 

OCC Legal services will be involved in the grant of the necessary licence grant.

 

The Cabinet Member is RECOMMENDED to approve the sharing of the A40 Transport Model subject to the license agreement being signed.

 

Decision:

Approved

Forward Plan Ref: 2019/066

Contact: Hugh Potter, Team Leader – Area Operations Hub Tel: 07766 998704

 

Report by Director for Community Operations (CMDE5).

 

The report presents responses received to a statutory consultation to improve and convert the above footway links on the north west quadrant of the roundabout to a shared use footway/cycle track put forward as part of wider plans to improve safety and amenity for cyclists along the B4493 at Didcot and, if approved, would be funded by the Great Western Park residential development. The proposal is seen as integral to the goal of encouraging cycle trips as an alternative to the use of private cars, including for residents of the new development, thereby serving to help reduce congestion in the town and encourage active and low-carbon travel.

 

The Cabinet Member for the Environment is RECOMMENDED to approve the conversion of the existing footway link between the north side of the B4493 Wantage Road and the west side of the B4493 Foxhall Road to a shared use footway/cycle track as advertised.

 

 

 

Decision:

Approved with additional signing/road markings to be provided on Glyn Avenue for motor vehicles to advise of the cycle crossing point.
