To install 130 cycle parking spaces at Seacourt, Redbridge and Peartree Park and Ride.
As part of efforts to reopen the city following Covid 19, the City Council is working with Oxfordshire County Council on emergency measure to allow for social distancing and for use of sustainable modes of transport including walking, cycling and public transport.
In the lead up to reopening the city a range of transport measure were implemented at short notice.
This decision relates to the installation of 130 cycle parking spaces at Seacourt, Redbridge and Peartree Park and Ride. These spaces were installed to allow increased rates of cycling from park and rides to final destinations, while the use of public transport is discouraged.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding to be used to fund this. This scheme has been confirmed as being eligible for CIL as it relates to infrastructure that will have a strategic benefit in the reopening of the city centre as well as being aligned to the longer term transport strategy in terms of reducing car travel into the city and utilising the park & rides as a key opportunity to get people onto cycles and buses.
Total cost: £10,900.
Alternative options considered:
Do nothing – this option was rejected as reopening of city relied on transport measures to support people walking and cycling.
