Following an earlier consultation carried out in May 2018 (for details click here) regarding various proposals linked to the Graven Hill development in Bicester/Ambrosden, Oxfordshire County Council is now re-consulting on the proposals following the expiration of the statutory 2-year period in which to implement the original proposals. The proposals - as a result of the extensive residential development - remain as originally consulted on, and comprise of the following specific measures:

  1. To introduce a 20mph speed limit on:
    • All roads within the development - south of the A41 Rodney House roundabout junction.
  2. to introduce a Prohibition of waiting and loading/unloading at any time on:
    • the Circular Road East, Graven Hill Road and Westcott Road (effectively known as the inner circulatory route).
  3. to introduce One Hour Waiting parking restrictions on all days (no return within I hour) on:
    • the 20 designated parking bays fronting the retail premises on the northwest side of Graven Hill Road.

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.12.6.129) to the address below by 16 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.
