Blenheim Drive & North Parade Avenue (Oxford) Development Parking Amendments

Following an earlier consultation carried out in December 2018 (see here) and the decision reached at the relevant Cabinet Members Decisions meeting - Oxfordshire County Council now proposes to further alter the current CPZ Traffic Regulation Orders by amending the eligibility for occupants and residents of the new development in North Parade Avenue to obtain residents or visitors parking permits. These proposals are being put forward in response to the planning permissions have been granted for residential units on the basis that these should not be occupied until a Traffic Regulation Order has been changed to confirms this. Additional residential development on Blenheim Drive has also resulted in the need to alter the parking provisions on the road immediately outside of the property.

Specifically, it is therefore proposed:

  • (1) in North Summertown – outside No.46 Blenheim Drive – to replace a 5 metre Permit Parking Place with double yellow lines due to development of a property where it is necessary to allow access as a planning requirement.
  • (2) in Walton Manor area - North Parade Avenue, Nos.4A, 4B and 4C - to clarify eligibility that residents may apply for a single residents parking permit only per flat (plus visitors permits)

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 17 May 2019. 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 2019. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.

This consultation has now closed.
