Parking data 23 December

Plenty of spaces at Seacourt again today, fine weather, 2 days before Christmas.  NO NEED for more.

 

NO NEED

There was an interesting article in yesterday’s Oxford Mail.
It was widely predicted that the number of visitors to Oxford would rise from the previous 9 million per annum to 15 million when Westgate opened. That’s a 66% increase.
The actual increase stated in this article is 13% compared to the same week last year.
That’s only 1/5th of what was predicted.
So the case for more parking at Seacourt has the rug pulled sharply from under it. There simply is NO NEED for more.

Today’s parking data (9 Dec)

Weekends are quieter in the park and rides than are weekdays. Nevertheless we collected today’s data. Some was not available, as shown. So we visited Redbridge and Seacourt at peak times and there were plenty of empty spaces as the photos show.

No need – car park occupancy today (8 December)

Plenty of empty parking spaces again in and around Oxford today, now 16 shopping days to Christmas.

There is NO NEED for any more spaces.

 

 

Seacourt on today’s letters page

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.

Car park usage today, 3 December
