Minutes:

The Executive Director Sustainable City had submitted a reportto seek project approval, subject to budget approval by Council, to relocate and extend the car parking decking currently at Oxpens car park at Redbridge Park & Ride.

 

The Executive Director Sustainable City introduced the report. The temporary planning permission for the decking on its current site had expired and it had to be removed. A number of options had been explored including  selling, scrapping or moving the  decking. All options had a cost associated with them. The option of moving the decking to the Redbridge Park and Ride site was considered, on balance, to be the most cost-effective , not least because it might mitigate the potential  loss of spaces at that site when work on the Oxford Flood Alleviation Scheme gets underway.

 

The City Executive Board resolved to:

 

1.    Grant project approval, subject to Council approval of the capital budget for the relocation and extension of the car park decking currently located at Oxpens car park at Redbridge Park and Ride; and

2.    Delegate to the  Chief Executive in conjunction with the Section 151 Officer and Monitoring Officers the authority to enter into all appropriate contracts to implement the recommended option.
