Walton Street (Oxford) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (Prohibition of Motor Vehicles)

Following the conclusion of a 'preliminary' consultation on the introduction of a proposed 'Experimental Low Traffic Neighbourhood Area' (details available here) Oxfordshire County Council has now decided to make the following experimental Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and all other enabling power. The effect of the order, which comes into force on 18 November 2019 is:


  • Walton Street - to close the southern end of Walton Street at its junction with Beaumont Street and Worcester Street to motor vehicle traffic.

The Experimental Order will operate for a maximum period of 18 months and will be monitored with findings reported to the Council`s Transport Committee meeting after at least 6 months.

The Council will be considering in due course whether the provisions of the Experimental Order should be continued in force indefinitely. Any person may object to the making of the experimental Order for the purposes of such indefinite continuation within a period of 6 months** (a) beginning with the day on which the experimental Order comes into force or (b) if that Order is varied by any order made by the Council or modified by the Director for Communities/Infrastructure Delivery of the Council pursuant to Section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, beginning with the day on which the variation or modification comes into force.

** 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: AK.12.6.320) to the address below by 29 May 2020.
