Controlled Parking Zones

Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) – Update 26 April: The  Oxfordshire County Council Cabinet Member for the Environment (including Transport) agreed on 25 April 2019 to include Sandhills in the list of 9 areas where Highways would ‘carry out scheme development and formal consultation’. Sandhills was included because Highways need to undertake a parking survey in the winter months to more accurately know the number of cars displaced from the Park & Ride.

The timetable is currently:

  • May 2019 – March 2020 – scheme design and formal consultation
  • Winter 2019 – Summer 2021 – account set-up and scheme implementation.

Risinghurst will be kept under review but no further work will be carried out at this stage.

Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ): Oxfordshire County Council is currently reviewing the introduction of CPZ’s in different areas of the city. Before Christmas, informal consultations were undertaken in both Risinghurst and Sandhills resulting in both areas voting against the introduction of a CPZ. A meeting is due on 25 April to discuss the latest situation – more details can be obtained here. If you are particularly concerned about this issue, please contact Glynis Phillips (our local Oxon county councillor).
