Good to see this positive and supportive editorial.
Note: The article says that the Scheme extends from Seacourt P&R to Sandford Lock – it does in fact extend down only as far as the Redbridge/Kennington area.
Two letters in today’s Oxford Times.
One from us on the fact that extra capacity is simply not needed.
See too the recent parking spaces data in an earlier post.
Would not live signs on the ring road, showing availability at the park and rides be a good idea, optimising the usage of the substantial existing capacity?
Contrary to claims in the Application, our analysis suggests that, for traffic from the south, in terms of time taken to reach the car park from the A34, Redbridge (the bigger of the two) is almost always a quicker option than Seacourt.
The other letter is from Adrian Rosser on the extensive clearance that’s been going on on the site before the Planning Committee has even met to consider the application.
The government wants to rewrite planning guidance – we’re concerned that the current guidance (PPS25) controlling building in floodplains may be weakened or lost – so we’ve contributed to the consultation and written letters to the Oxford Times http://www.oxfordtimes.co.uk/news/opinions/letters/9274193.Serious_future_risk/ and our two MPs.
