Update

At a Cabinet Members Decisions meeting on April 29th 2021, the Cabinet Member for Environment confirmed the following decisions;

  • to terminate an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order for the closure of Walton Street at its junction with Worcester Street. To not make the trial scheme permanent and remove all traffic management measures associated with the trial
  • to not proceed with the Jericho and Walton Manor area pilot scheme consulted on by the county council (subject of this consultation page), in recognition of local opinion provided during the consultation phase
  • noted the wide range of important issues raised by those opposing, supporting, and neutral about the Jericho and Walton Manor area pilot scheme proposals.

Background

In March 2021, Oxfordshire County Council ran a consultation on a new pilot traffic scheme for the Jericho and Walton Manor area.

This consultation was on a  pilot traffic scheme and did not seek views on a pre-existing Walton Street traffic filter that was implemented on a trial basis in November 2019. A consultation on the existing Walton Street traffic filter took place between November 2019 and May 2020. The existing trial traffic filter on Walton Street was due to expire in May 2021. 

The new pilot traffic scheme was proposed as an alternative to the existing traffic filter on Walton Street.

The consultation was undertaken as whilst the existing Walton Street traffic filter has brought benefits, county council also recognised it had generated concerns among the local community. The alternative proposal that were consulted on intended to retain the benefits whilst addressing the concerns received. Measures specifically involved;

  • No left turn for motor traffic from Little Clarendon Street into Walton Street
  • No right turn for motor traffic from Walton Street into Worcester Street
  • No right turn for motor traffic from Beaumont Street into Walton Street
  • No U turn for eastbound motor traffic on Beaumont Street

The consultation closed on 19 March 2021
