23/03/2020 - Oxford Greenways Project ref: 1901    Recommendations Approved

To create consistent and well-connected cycling and walking routes linking surrounding towns and villages with Oxford’s city centre.

 

Oxfordshire County Council and the University of Oxford will be contributing similar amounts as partners in the project, in order to create a total project budget of £100,000. Funding agreements will be entered into with both partner funders. Additional project funds may be received as donations from relevant stakeholders.

 

The overall budget will enable the procurement of a specialist consultancy, which will create a “bid-ready” document over the course of 12 to 18 months. Success for the project looks like the creation of a feasible vision, which is compelling to funders and the public alike, so that future phases of work (detailed design and delivery) can be achieved.
