Cowley Central East & West (Oxford) Proposed CPZ Amendments

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to amend the newly introduced Cowley Central West CPZ by introducing additional parking restrictions on the western side of Crowell Road, either side of Lewin Close. The proposals are being put forward in response to concerns raised about appropriate access for emergency vehicles being maintained, and that traffic will be able to enter/exit the Lewin Close junction safely without obstruction. Specifically, the proposals comprise of the following measures:

  • introduce a ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) parking prohibition on Crowell Road (west side) for 15 metres either side of the junction with Lewin Close. This will replace the existing `No Waiting 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday` single yellow line restrictions. 

Additionally, the Cowley Central East legal traffic regulation order will be amended to remove the exemption for permit holders not having to comply with parking restrictions, as none of the designated time-limited parking bays within the schedules should contain such exemption.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM.12.6.320) to the address below by 02 July 2021. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
