Various Roads (East Oxford) Proposed Pedal Cycle Parking

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make changes to car parking in a number of streets in the East Oxford Controlled Parking Zone to allow the introduction of some secure on street cycle parking.  Thames Valley Police has received funding from the Home Office Safer Streets Fund to go towards measures that are intended to cut crime and the impact it has.  Oxford has high rates of cycle theft and many residents in this area have limited options to securely park their bikes.  The county and city councils support the introduction of secure on street cycle parking in order to encourage more people to own and use a bike.  This fits with the county council’s current and emerging Local Transport Plan.

The streets where changes are proposed to car parking are as follows:

Bullingdon Road

2 sections of cycle parking on the north side:

a) southwest of the junction with St Marys Road outside No.24, and b) southwest of Bramwell Place outside Nos.18 & 17

reduction in length of permit parking places & increase in 2-hour Parking Places
Circus Street 1 section of cycle parking on the north side northeast of the junction with Iffley Road  reduction in length of permit parking places
Hurst Street 1 section of cycle parking north of Bullingdon Road, on the west side outside No. 34  no change to parking,
James Street

2 sections of cycle parking on the south side:

a) east of Denmark Street outside property No.87, and b) at the west end outside No.61

reduction in length of permit parking places & increase in 2-hour Parking Places
Marston Street 1 section of cycle parking on the north side outside property Nos.36 & 38 adjustments to length of permit parking places
Stockmore Street

2 sections of cycle parking:

a) on the south side outside property No.44, and b) on the north side outside No. 21

reduction in length of 2-hour Parking Places & increase in permit parking places,
St Mary’s Road

2 sections of cycle parking on the north side:

a) southeast of the junction with James Street outside the Church, and b) southeast of Crown Street outside the ‘The Black Swan’ Public House

reduction in length of permit parking places & 2-hour Parking Places,
Regent Street

3 sections of cycle parking on the southern side:

a) outside property No.20, b) outside Nos.5 & 6, and c) west of Hurst Street outside No.16 Hurst Street 

adjustments to lengths of permit parking places,

.

The proposed changes to car parking will allow the introduction of secure on street parking for 104 bicycles in total across these eight streets.  The cycle parking will be positioned to protect the secured bicycles from damage by passing vehicles. 

The cycle parking is likely to take the form of an enhanced version of a standard Sheffield stand such that as long as the bike’s frame and rear wheel are locked to the unit, the front wheel will also automatically be secure providing an extra level of security.

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 18 December 2020.
