Have your say on Bicester parking proposals

A consultation has been launched into proposals to tackle parking problems on a number of residential roads in Bicester.

Concerns have been raised relating to parking problems caused by non-residents on roads in Bicester. In response the county council is proposing the introduction of localised ‘no waiting’ restrictions to prevent obstruction and ensure the way remains clear for larger vehicles.

People will have until 21 October to have their say. The order proposes restrictions in:

  • Bernwood Road
  • Junctions of Woodfield Road, Brashfield Road and Taylor Close with Blake Road
  • Bucknell Road/Field Street junction to Stoneburge Crescent
  • Chichester Close, Campbell Close
  • Junctions of Derwent Road and Trent Crescent with Dryden Avenue
  • Granville Way
  • Hunt Close
  • Kings Avenue
  • Mallards Way
  • Rowan Road junctions with Hamilton Close and Almond Road
  • Junctions of Tay Gardens, Burns Crescent, Dryden Avenue, Brook Road and Browning Drive with Shakespeare Drive
  • Northern end of Sheep Street
  • Withington Road
  • Woodfield Road (south)

People are encouraged to respond to this consultation whether they are in agreement with the proposals or not to ensure that the most appropriate scheme is delivered.

Any objections are expected to be taken to Cabinet Member Decisions on 24 November and be implemented later this financial year.

Cabinet member for transport, County Councillor David Nimmo Smith, said: “I would like to urge people to see what is being proposed and have their say now.”

“I am glad that the county council is looking at measures which could help solve a long-standing problem for Bicester residents and it will be good to hear direct from them before making a decision.”
