Report by Interim Director for Community Operations (CMDE6).

 

Following approval by the Cabinet Member for Environment at her 17th December Cabinet Member Delegated Decisions meeting for the introduction of the Cowley Centre (East) CPZ it has come to light that a petition submitted in objection was not presented within the officer report and recommendations.

 

In summary, the petition of 30 signatories (including lead petitioner) from residents of Barns Road and Lockheart Crescent requests that:

 

“We the residents of Cowley East Area would like to propose that the County Council do not approve the two cars per household restriction, as we believe it is unreasonable to limit residents’ ability to lead an independent life and have flexibility to go to work. We also feel that visitor permits should be free. Cowley East is a working families resident area and we feel that we would struggle to afford your charges and ask your consideration as we are already struggling to afford our basic bills.

 

Vehicle allowance needs to be agreed per household. Possibly offer drop kerbs where possible at reduced prices, spaces for residents more in need and residents parking after 6-8pm.”

 

It is noted that the petition while not objecting to the principle of the proposed CPZ for Cowley Centre (East) raises issues regarding the limit of permits per household and the equity of payment for those permits. Similar concerns were raised by other respondents during the consultation and these were carefully and comprehensively considered as part of the 17th December report and decision. County officers consider the petition raises no additional or new issues which might affect the Cabinet Member’s earlier decision and that the scheme should now move forward to implementation.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is therefore requested to consider the content of the petition, determine whether or not any further action is required and if not reaffirm the 17th December decision to approve the Cowley Central Area (East): Proposed Controlled parking Zone scheme.

 

Minutes:

Following approval by the Cabinet Member for Environment at her 17 December Cabinet Member Delegated Decisions meeting for the introduction of the Cowley Centre (East) CPZ it had come to light that a petition submitted in objection had not been presented within the officer report and recommendations. In summary, the petition of 30 signatories (including lead petitioner) from residents of Barns Road and Lockheart Crescent requested that:

 

“We the residents of Cowley East Area would like to propose that the County Council do not approve the two cars per household restriction, as we believe it is unreasonable to limit residents’ ability to lead an independent life and have flexibility to go to work. We also feel that visitor permits should be free. Cowley East is a working families resident area and we feel that we would struggle to afford your charges and ask your consideration as we are already struggling to afford our basic bills.

 

Vehicle allowance needs to be agreed per household. Possibly offer drop kerbs where possible at reduced prices, spaces for residents more in need and residents parking after 6-8pm.”

 

County officers considered the petition raised no additional or new issues which might affect the Cabinet Member’s earlier decision and in their view the scheme should move forward to implementation.

 

The Cabinet Member confirmed that she had a copy of the petition in front of her for this meeting and that the full December report had been placed on the website as a background document for this meeting and that she also had a copy of that report.

 

The Cabinet Member noted that the petition while not objecting to the principle of the proposed CPZ for Cowley Centre (East) raised issues regarding the limit of permits per household and the equity of payment for those permits. Similar concerns had been raised by other respondents during the consultation which had been carefully and comprehensively considered as part of the report submitted to her on 17 December and subsequently her decision and so having regard to that and the advice from officers that the petition raised no additional or new issues which might affect her earlier decision the Cabinet Member:

 

reaffirmed her 17 December decision to approve the Cowley Centre Area (East): Proposed Controlled Parking Zone Scheme and for that to now move forward to implementation.

Oxford: Church Cowley, Temple Cowley and Florence Park Areas: Proposed Low Traffic Neighbourhood pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Forward Plan Ref: 2020/164

Contact: Eric Owens, Assistant Director Growth & Place Tel: 07799 097637/Naomi Barnes, Project Manager Tel: 07824 528681

 

Report by Assistant Director, Growth & Place, Communities (CMDE5).

 

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTN’s) were proposed for Oxford in the Oxford Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) as an effective way of promoting walking and cycling, in line with Council objectives of public health, decongestion, climate change and air quality. Temple Cowley, Church Cowley and Florence Park (Cowley) were chosen as priority areas in response to residents’ complaints about traffic and to improve the cycle routes running through the neighbourhoods.

 

It is proposed that the Cowley LTNs will be introduced using Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders (ETROs). This allows the Council and residents to assess the impacts before a decision is made regarding their permanency.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to

 

a.         note the responses received to the preliminary consultation on the Cowley Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

 

b.        approve proposals as consulted on for the introduction of traffic management measures in the Church Cowley, Temple Cowley and Florence Park areas in Oxford to create Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, including the introduction of Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders giving effect to the proposed modal filters within the LTNs, and associated waiting restrictions.

 

c.         approve minor changes from the consultation proposals in the light of consultation responses, namely:

 

             i.             To relocate the filter in Junction Road from south of Don Bosco Close to north of Salesian Gardens entry

            ii.             To permit taxis and private hire vehicles through the traffic filters which permit buses in Cornwallis Road and Bartholomew Road

Minutes:

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTN’s) had been proposed for Oxford in the Oxford Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) as an effective way of promoting walking and cycling, in line with Council objectives of public health, decongestion, climate change and air quality. Temple Cowley, Church Cowley and Florence Park (Cowley) had been chosen as priority areas in response to residents’ complaints about traffic and to improve the cycle routes running through the neighbourhoods. Therefore, it was proposed that the Cowley LTNs be introduced using Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders (ETROs) allowing the County Council and residents to assess the impacts before a decision was made regarding permanency.

 

Charlie Hicks urged that the recommendation to implement the schemes be accepted as hopefully the first of many other LTNs across the city and county. He thanked County Councillor John Sanders for his work in helping to deliver the scheme and also to many local residents who had campaigned for this for over 18 months.  The case for LTNs to him was clear and very positive. Shortcutting traffic through residential streets was not inevitable and residential streets should be safe streets and a place for community and people to live and prioritising health. Zero carbon travel needed to be the easy, attractive and safe default option.  As borne out by the consultation which showed over 70% of residents in favour overall there was huge support for these proposals and he hoped that those who were sceptical now would recognise the benefits once the proposals were established. He understood the concerns regarding uncertainty over what would happen to traffic levels and whether journeys would be more difficult, especially if it meant traffic increasing on a few roads, which no-one wanted. That was why it was so important that these schemes were introduced as an experiment with all residents able to be heard when final decisions were made.

 

He made a number of suggestions:

 

1. As well as red ‘Road Closed’ signs,green ‘Road Open’ (to pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchairs, children scooting) could be placed on the planters too.

2. Signs introduced at entrances to the LTNs to let drivers know there were no longer rat runs open to them, e.g. “Rethink Your Route” signs

3. In the first few weeks, while drivers were getting used to the new filters and in order to help cars turn around safely at modal filters, perhaps council staff or volunteers at the planters could help manage any cars that needed to turn around? That would be especially helpful for the school drop off and pick up at St Christopher’s and Church Cowley St James Primary Schools

4. Involve school leaders more closely in the conversation with planning for LTNs and School Streets integrated together where possible.

5. Bring in the St Christopher’s School Street at the same time as the Temple Cowley LTN so there would be no issues at drop off/pick up times.

6. Greater clarity given on how residents could give their feedback and input over the first 6  ...  view the full minutes text for item 27/21

Oxford - Oxford Road, Littlemore: Proposed Traffic Calming Measures pdf icon PDF 655 KB

Contact: Hugh Potter, Group Manager – Area Operations Hub Tel: 07766 998704/Geoff Barrell, Senior Infrastructure Planner Tel: 07740 779859

 

Report by Interim Corporate Director Communities (CMDE6).

 

The report presents responses received to a statutory consultation on proposed  traffic calming measures on Oxford Road in Littlemore which have been put forward as a result of a review of alternative options for traffic calming following the decision by the Cabinet Member for Environment on 18 June 2020 not to proceed with a zebra crossing and other measures consulted on in February and March 2020. Funding for the proposed measures was negotiated from the development of the Lawn Upton House site in nearby Sandford Road.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to approve the proposed traffic calming measures as advertised but to consider retaining the existing northern end buildout.

 

 

 

 

 

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Environment considered (CMDE6) responses to a consultation on proposed traffic calming measures on Oxford Road in Littlemore put forward as result of a review of alternative options for traffic calming following an earlier decision by her not to proceed with a zebra crossing and other measures which had been consulted on in 2020.

 

City Councillor John Tanner thanked County officers for proposing two traffic calming schemes for Oxford Road, Littlemore and listening so closely to local views, including those of Littlemore Parish Council and urged that the scheme be supported.  Traffic speeds were dangerously high off the ring road into Oxford Road and that needed to be reduced,  motorists discouraged from using Oxford Road, Littlemore as a short cut to the Reading Road (the A4074) and the environment made safer for pedestrians to cross to the popular Oxford Road recreation ground.   He also asked that the existing northern end build-out at the junction of Oxford Road, Littlemore with the ring road be retained. A flat-top hump was already proposed at this point but retaining the build-out would prevent the loss of two much needed on-street parking places with the narrowing encouraging traffic from the ring road to slow down.

 

County Councillor Gill Sanders spoke in of the measures proposed in Oxford Road, Littlemore.  Traffic frequently exceeded the 20 mile limit on this road particularly when coming of the roundabout on the ring road. Littlemore Parish Council also supported the proposal as did a large majority of the local residents.  She had raised previously the possibility of installing a 20 mile per hour repeater sign in this road  to remind drivers that there was a speed limit and unless reminded felt many of them would continue to speed despite the installation of the road humps.

 

A written representation from Sorcha Ianham a resident of Oxford Road, Littlemore thatthe proposal was the best solution to the  volume and speeding traffic, bringing about much improved safety to the residents of Oxford Road and those accessing the road both pedestrians and drivers and was very much welcomed.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment thanked the speakers for their comments and having regard to the information set out in the report before her confirmed her decision as follows:

 

approve the proposed traffic calming measures on Oxford Road, Littlemore as but with the existing northern end buildout retained.

Report by Interim Corporate Director Communities (CMDE7).

 

Provision of on-street charging apparatus for electric vehicles is reviewed in response to development proposals, assessments of demand carried out by officers and requests received from external bodies. Current proposals for charging points are delivered under the Go Ultra Low Oxford (GULO) strand of projects, which is funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles and Oxford City Council and delivered in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council. T-GULO provides rapid charging for the taxi trade and O-GULO provides fast charging for car clubs and residents without access to off-street parking. The charge points will be funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Oxford City Council, with match funding contributions from EB Charging Lt and Franklin, under a revenue share agreement to cover operational cost.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to approve the proposals as advertised for electric charging points for vehicles with the exception of the proposal for Barns Road, which it is recommended should not proceed in the light of the objections received.

Report by Assistant Director Growth and Place (CMDE8).

 

Oxfordshire County Council in its role as Local Highway Authority agreed to take part in a 12-month long trial of e-scooters within the county.  The trial is being managed at a national level by the Department of Transport (DfT) who legislated for their trial use as part of local authority led hire operations on 4 July 2020.  This report (i) provides the Cabinet Member with an update on the development of a rental e-scooter trial for the city of Oxford, and (ii) seeks approval for the rental e-scooter trial to operate in Oxfordshire. It also summarises a preliminary consultation with key stakeholders on the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) measures intended to be brought in to facilitate the use of e-scooters across Oxford. It should be noted that private e-scooters remain illegal and cannot be included in this trial.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to:

 

a.         note the responses received to the preliminary consultation on the trial of e-scooters

 

b.        approve an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to facilitate the use of public hire e-scooters (i.e. electrically powered) on the public highway across the Oxford urban area, including an initial launch within the Headington area of Oxford.

Minutes:

Oxfordshire County Council in its role as Local Highway Authority had agreed to take part in a 12-month long trial of e-scooters within the county.  The Cabinet Member for Environment considered an update on the development of a rental e-scooter trial for the city of Oxford and which sought approval for the rental e-scooter trial to operate in Oxfordshire and summarised a preliminary consultation with key stakeholders on the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) measures intended to be brought in to facilitate the use of e-scooters across Oxford. The report noted that private e-scooters had and could not be included in this trial.

 

County Councillor Emma Turnbull broadly welcomed the introduction of an e-scooter scheme in the city centre but had some concerns about the basis of their use in Cornmarket Street. She supported removal of the time restriction on cycling and introduction of a marked two-way cycle lane down the middle of the paved area. Currently a bit of a free for all she was concerned that the addition of e-scooters might well add to the confusion for pedestrians. Adding a designated cycle lane down Cornmarket would be transformative for cyclists, who currently had to use the narrow Turl Street or run the gauntlet of shoppers along New Inn Hall Street and the side of the Westgate and so while welcoming these measures urged that access to Cornmarket be kept under review.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment having regard to the information set out in the report before her together with the representations made to her at the meeting confirmed her decision as follows:

 

a.         note the responses received to the preliminary consultation on the trial of e-scooters

 

b.         approve an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to facilitate the use of public hire e-scooters (i.e. electrically powered) on the public highway across the Oxford urban area, including an initial launch within the Headington area of Oxford.

Report by Interim Corporate Director Communities (CMDE9).

 

It is proposed to use money from the allocation from the Home Office Safer Streets Fund allocated to Thames Valley Police for the provision of secure on street cycle parking in eight streets between Iffley and Cowley Road from The Plain to Bullingdon Road.  The report sets out responses to a consultation for  provision of secure parking for 104 bicycles carried out in November and December last year.  Whilst there were some common objections to the proposals in general as well as some specific objections/concerns about finer details, there was considerable support for the provision of additional secure cycle parking.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to approve the proposals as advertised for secure on-street cycle parking in East Oxford except for the proposals at the north east end of Regent Street.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Highway Management considered (CMDE9) responses received to a consultation for provision of secure parking for 104 bicycles carried out in November and December last year in eight streets between Iffley and Cowley Road from The Plain to Bullingdon Road using money from the allocation from the Home Office Safer Streets Fund allocated to Thames Valley Police for the provision of secure on street cycle parking.    There had been some common objections to the proposals in general as well as some specific objections/concerns about finer details but overall the report highlighted considerable support for the provision of additional secure cycle parking.

 

PC Jamie Howell from Thames Valley Police Safer Streets Team had started this process with the intention of improving the safety of the community it served. 44% of the offences in this area related to the theft of bicycles with Oxford itself traditionally having high levels of cycle theft. This area had significant levels of bikes left outside the fronts of properties with poor options for locking those bikes safely because of a lack of space outside properties or locations to effectively secure the bike. Having worked with partners in the city in relation to cycle theft and the national cycle working group ideas had been formed of where resources could be targeted and 3 main goals were set to try and achieve this through an ambitious mass bike registration push with a national database, free gold standard D-lock distribution (alongside best locking guidance) and the introduction of secure on street parking for cycles. Accepting that nothing was 100% effective these measures could help reduce the likelihood of a theft occurring and would support the City Council’s own program of street parking. This was a unique opportunity to provide something to the community, offering real value by adding an additional level of bike security in the St Mary’s ward.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment having regard to the information set out in the report before her together with the representations made to her at the meeting confirmed her decision as follows:

 

to approve the proposals as advertised for secure on-street cycle parking in East Oxford except for the proposals at the north east end of Regent Street.
