Market Place (Wantage) Proposed Parking Amendments

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make changes to the existing parking restrictions on Market Place & Newbury Street, including making amendments to the existing disabled persons parking provision. The proposals are being put forward as a result of congestion of buses in Market Place combined with the parking of vehicles on the ‘zig-zag’ line markings approaching the pedestrian crossing on the south side of Market Place. Specifically, the changes comprise of the following measures:

Market Place:

  • (outside the Blue Boar PH) - retention of a single Disabled Parking Place with the remainder of that layby becoming a Bus Stand.

Newbury Street:

  • (outside property no.3) - removal of the area of 'No Waiting 8am to 6pm' to provide space for disabled persons parking.

* There are corresponding adjustments to double yellow lines (Prohibition of Waiting at Any Time) to bring the proposed measures together.

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.12.6.391) to the address below by 08 November 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 or early in 2020. The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
