Local Transport Plan 4 (LTP4)

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Councillor Tanner, seconded by Councillor Curran, proposed his submitted motion (Local Transport Plan 4)


After debate and on being put to the vote, the motion was declared carried.


Council resolved to adopt the motion as set out below:


Oxford City Council welcomes the improvements made by Oxfordshire County Council to Local Transport Plan 4 (LTP4), including the greater emphasis on walking and cycling, clean air, support for a workplace parking levy in Oxford and the option of more residents’ parking schemes across the city.


However LTP4 is still not ambitious enough and offers too little too late. We consider that a unitary Oxford would be able to make the improvements needed more quickly and effectively.  We also consider that the standard of road and pavement maintenance in Oxford is unacceptably poor.  


The City Council calls on the County Council as highway authority, to improve cycling and pedestrian facilities, introduce a zero emission zone and to consult on a workplace parking levy for Oxford without delay.


The City Council also asks the County to review its spending priorities, and the areas of Oxfordshire where transport funding is spent, so that more money is available for road repairs and maintenance in the city.
