Headington Quarry Area (Oxford) Proposed Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ)

Following the 'informal' consultation carried out in November/December 2018 (for details click here) regarding the proposal to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) within the Headington Quarry area,  Oxfordshire County Council is now proposing to formally install a new Minimum Impact (low signage) CPZ. It is anticipated that this will help to address the local problems associated with commuter parking and overflow parking from adjacent residents parking areas.

The development of Controlled Parking Zones) CPZs is a key element of the County Council’s Parking Strategy, and forms part of action plans to tackle the problems of congestion identified for Oxford, as well as to improve air quality and the street environment. CPZs restrict the availability of commuter parking in residential streets and encourage commuters to find alternative means of transport both into and within the City. Supported by public transport, walking and cycling improvements, they are an essential tool in managing traffic levels and thereby reducing the effects of traffic congestion. They also ensure that cars are not parked in inappropriate or unsafe places, thereby contributing to road safety and improvements to the street environment.

The operational hours for the Zone for Residents Permit Parking will be 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and the following roads will include parking places for permit holders (Zone Addresses), general parking will be permitted outside these times:

Bankside Coppock Close Pitts Road Spring Lane
Beaumont Road Gladstone Road Quarry High Street Toot Hill Butts
Chequers Place Green Road (on the western side of the A4142 Oxford Eastern Bypass) Quarry Hollow Trinity Road*
Cooper Place New Cross Road Quarry School Place  


* in Trinity Road, in the layby opposite Holy Trinity Church there will be 2 hour limited waiting 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday – permit holders exempt). 

Waiting Restrictions - prohibition of waiting at any time (double yellow lines) are proposed in the following roads:

  • Beaumont Road, Cooper Place, Coppock Close, *Eastern Bypass service road, Gladstone Road, Green Road (on the western side of the A4142 Oxford Eastern Bypass) , New Cross Road, Pitts Road, Quarry High Street, Quarry Hollow, Quarry School Place, Spring Lane, *Toot Hill Butts, Trinity Road.
    • (*the proposed double yellow line restriction will also replace the existing no waiting 8am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday in these roads)

NOTE: Further details can be found in the Public Notice & Statement of Reasons, which will be available among the other consultation documents when finalised.

Residents permits will be limited to one per resident with a maximum of two permits per property.  A resident may obtain a temporary permit for a replacement vehicle while their permanent vehicle is off the road. A person who is temporarily resident at a Zone Address for work purposes will be eligible for a resident`s permit. A resident who is temporarily resident for study purpose does not qualify.
