Various Roads (Bicester) Proposed Parking Restrictions

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to introduce various waiting restrictions in several locations within Bicester. The proposals have come about as a result of concerns being raised over dangerous and inappropriate parking within Bicester, and will help prevent parked vehicles obstructing visibility at junctions and restricting the passage of traffic, as well as ensuring safety at junctions for more vulnerable road users. Specifically, the proposals comprise of the following:

  • to introduce new and/or extend existing Prohibition of Waiting at Any Time (Double Yellow Lines - DYLs) on the following roads:
    • Buckingham Crescent/Road, Chalvey Road, Danes Road, Dryden Avenue, Dryden Avenue Cul-de-Sac, Hemingway Drive, Huxley Close, Isis Avenue, Kennedy Road, Lawrence Way, Ray Road, Severn Close, St Ediths Way, Tubb Close, Tweed Crescent, and Villiers Road

  • to introduce various additional parking restrictions on Buckingham Crescent/Road as follows:
    • 2 spaces for 30 minute parking with no return within an hour,
    • 30 metres (5/6 spaces) of 1 hour parking with no return within an hour, and
    • new Disabled Persons Parking Places.

*note: for further details of which roads (and by what extents) are affected by the various proposals please refer to the plans & public notice.

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.12.6.129) to the address below by 26 February 2021. 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 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
